    Slow boot and shutdown time


    My rig is running good, everything is working well and it's very fast. except the boot/shutdown time.
    Even my old HP Pavilion ZD8000 with an IDE 4200RPM boots Win8 faster then my desktop with Raid0 SSD's :/

    What can i do to get faster boot/shutdown time?

    Specs:
    AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
    8GB RAM
    XfX Radeon HD 6870 1GB
    Gigabye GA-990FXA-UD3 (with latest BIOS)
    OS Disks (SSD): Kingston HyperX 3K with latest firmware in Raid0

    Need more info? tell me....
