Maximus IX Formula 7700k Slow post?

Level 7
recently I am experiencing what I THINK is a slow post on my new IX Formula board with 7700k processor and G.Skill TridentZ 4133 16GB ram kit. (also a 1080 GPU)
I am trying all AUTO settings in the bios except setting the RAM frequency to 3600 and 1.25V where it's stable.

Here is a 4x slow motion video of the Q code as I start (it starts immediately on button press). At around Q code 98 I see my screen finally post an image, which is 15 seconds.

Is this normal? It seems to wait the longest on RAM, and then a long pause after, going back to 00 a few times. ALSO the funny thing is it starts with the green BOOT light first .

I could have sworn this used to be faster! Is it a bad component?

Level 7
Ok I got the POST time down to ~8s and boot to WIn 10 to 14s. Looks like the main culprits were connected hard disks, USB devices and the RAM itself is slowing things down at 3600 vs 2133.
