Talking Post your boot times!!

How fast does your computer start up?

I use BootVis to measure the time.

I have crammed mine down to 11.3 seconds, dare you go lower?
I didn't OC, and didn't use the optimize feature with BootVis.

On the menu bar, under "Trace" and "boot + driver delay"
Then it restarts, but let it sit for a minute at the desktop, it'll eventually come up.

There is a little graph... well a few graphs that show the processes, hard drive read/write and all that, scroll over to the right, and there should be a yellow line, and thats it.
