    Vinlark is right, that psu might actually be a little overpowering for the specs though. I could be wrong.

    The W is fine, they could probably even upgrade a bit.

    I'm having an issue where my bios boot is 15 seconds. I literally tried everything. I disabled almost everything in bios.

    Well I mean that might be something

    Is it your bios boot or OS boot up? Does it just stay on the bios screen for 15 seconds?

    Bios time says 15 seconds however Iobit Advanced Systemcare Ultimate says 15 second boot which is for windows. I notice that the 15 seconds is POST then Windows 10 is stupid fast.

    Do you have any RAID option activated in your BIOS? The PSU is fine btw, no need to change it.

    Is your device boot order priority set your 850Evo ( assuming it's your boot drive) as first?.

    Hmm if it's not checking for an OS on the other drives, I don't get what's taking it so long.

    When did this slow start happening? Did you update anything just prior to the problem?

    I will give an update soon I hope. I'm doing an extended SMART test on all drives. To be honest I'm not too worried about it because I just got my income tax so money to fix the issue is okay with me. However, I'm thinking of upgrading from a EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2978-KR 4GB FTW GAMING to a EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 HYBRID GAMING, 08G-P4-6178-KR.
