Greetings,
Please provide us with your complete system specs, brand and model of ALL attached hardware.  Please disconnect the 2TB data drive and test if your start up time improves. 

If so, Load set up defaults in BIOS, press F10 to save.  Allow the system to start, then shut down.  Now perform a cold boot and note the start up time, result?

Will wait for your responses.

Greetings,
All specs means PSU as well.  Did you load set up defaults?  And test boot times?

16.0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1066MHz (14-14-14-35) Motherboard - What tool did you use to measure CLK speed.  Your 7th gen processor supports XMP, but the reported value doesn't look correct unless this is one channel 1066 x 2 - 2132Mhz?  Is your memory on the QVL for the board?  Do you see XMP support in BIOS?  This should be enabled.

Slow boot time can have more than one cause.  Connected devices, USB (besides mouse and keyboard), hubs, other storage devices, etc.

Was this a fresh install of W10, an upgrade from a previous OS, or swap from another motherboard?  If this was not a fresh install of the OS, something left over can cause the delay.

The next things to look at are settings for option ROMs.  If these are set to enabled, they can cause delays while the system bus us scanned.  Formatting GPT or MBR won't affect boot times.  UEFI should be used when possible, Disable Legacy support if you are not using option ROMs.  With UEFI, you must also specify the UEFI "prefixed' install option for the OS during install.  Graphics driver is another possible source of boot delays.  Hopefully something here will help you to pinpoint the issue.

ok i forgot to say that i had a Matx mobo installed prev, and that booted up in 4 seconds easy as, so its not the psu as thats standard 750 w or hdd's or keyboards. as far as i know... yes i do have xmp enabled memory is hyper fury 2133 , yes fresh install win 10 , defaults are the same still 11 second boot time,  one thing that does bother me is that the mobo VGA diag light stays lit.until the system boots into windows then stays unlit...

Greetings,
4 sec boot is pretty impressive (unbelievable).  This must have been from sleep / hibernate.  My RAID 0 takes about 12 sec cold boot to desktop.  I can't see SanDisk outperforming 850 Pro's but anything is possible. My system wakes in about 1.5 sec...  tap spacebar and its up before I can sit down. 
 
Have you disabled all Legacy options?  Did you use the UEFI prefixed install option for W10?  I suspect it has to to with the way windows was installed.
