    Z690 Hero/I9-12900KF/Strix 3090/DDR5 4800 - SLOW WINDOWS 10 boot


    I have a weird issue and don't know what is going on!
    My kids pc are Aouris Gigabyte with i9-9900k and boots up in 5 seconds.

    My PC are fresh made Asus Z690 Hero / I9-12900KF / Strix 3090 / Corsair 4800 Mhz DDR5/FULL WATERCOOL and im getting 21-27 seconds! Crazy!
    I have Corsair ATX 1200i so power are not a issue!

    My brother have i9-10900k and also slow boot!

    Any idea?
    Is it possibly that new generation CPU are not optimized for windows 10?
    Or is there any specific BIOS settings I need to follow?
    I try to disable Crate and unsitall it and no difference! I'll try to put windows 10 from scratch and see if there is a difference!

    Thanks Norm

    I just build up a new system with a similar config to yours (I9-12900K, PNY 3090, G.Skill 6000/36, Maximus Z690 Forumula, Fully Watercooled) yesterday.

    I've got my "old" Win 11 installation I used on my previous AMD Ryzen build and I have a clean Win 10 test installation.

    Both boot up fine and fast (of course I had to clean my Win 11 install of all Ryzen drivers). I can't reproduce your issue.

    One tip: Don't install all the ASUS tools. I tried the Armoury Crate, AI Suite, etc. but I wasn't impressed. All the rubbish that's getting installed along with it caused my installation to take ages for restarts/shutdowns. I took a while to get rid of everything they installed, especially the Armoury Crate with all the RGB sync drivers. After I removed everything, my system restarted as quickly as it used to.
