Slow boot time for z270e during the splash screen

I recently noticed that my boot time got extremely long. I don't know the actual reason why, since I don't usually see my boot up sequence since I rarely turn it off due to the fact that it's my workhorse computer.

It posts fine, but when it gets to the splash screen, the spinning circle just keeps on spinning and spinning and spinning... I thought it could be my SSD, but it still got a good score from crystaldisk.

I've tried changing the boot order, making sure that the SSD gets priority. My PC also got no optical drive, so that's not causing the delay. Right now, I have no idea what's causing this.

PC Specs:

Mobo: z270e Strix
CPU: i7-7700k
GPU: GTX1070 Strix
RAM: Fury 16GB x 2

    Go into the bios settings there is an opiton for delay and normal boot by default it is set on a 30 second delay. Its a security/safety feature to prevent hardware damage after a fault is found.
