I just built a new i7-2600k system, and it is slighty slow to start up. When windows does appear, the mouse is showing the system is busy for a few soconds before i am able to use computer. After startup however the computer is running smooth.
I checked my startup under msconfig and its empty.
My system Specs are:
motherboard: Asus p8p67 Deluxe
Ram: Corsair Vengence 9-9-9-24 12GB
Video Card: Evga GTX 570
Hard Drive: WD 2TB 7200RPM
PSU: 950W Corsair
I am not using stock heatsink, i have a Corsair H-70 air cooler. i also have the system overclocked to 4.2GHZ
i tested it on 5.2 ghz and it didnt speed up boot time
From the moment the desktop is first displayed, every version of Windows still requires at least a few seconds, regardless of how many startup tasks you think you have or don't have, boot time is not 'instantaneous', at 3 GHz, 4 Ghz, or 5 GHz...
