Personally I think it has to do with the drives themselves. When my Seagate drives were starting to die my POST times were about twice as long as they had been and the boot to windows logo from POST and subsequently from logo to login screen were all longer.

After replacing the drives all the times were reduced.

M4N82 Deluxe
Phenom II 940 Black Edition quad core @ 3.5Ghz
4x2 Gigs Patriot PC2 6400
Buncha drives,
Cooler Master HAF XB EVO,
Corsair H100i,
Some other stuff,
Even more stuff,
