Good Stable Board....No issues...

Anonymous, Newegg
24 February 2016
  • Summary: Wish it went to 32gb ram or I wouldn't need to upgrade...Worked great for graphic design work for years....time to upgrade but need more ram for apps and software now...but good experience with Biostar boards
  • Pros: Stability, SATA connection numbers (running 4 drives)....Used this board for 5 years now....with no problems.
  • Cons: None I guess.

Still running great!

12 February 2015
  • Summary: Bought this board and an AMD Rana X3 processor back in May of '11. Has been running flawlessly since initial install. The only initial glitch I had was that it would lock during Windows 7 boot up (when the 4 colors would swoop in and meet up) I remembered a problem I had a few years before buying it...
  • Pros: -Easy to install -Everything marked clearly and evenly spaced.
  • Cons: Factory settings for memory were bad

  • Pros: Worked good until died.

I know its a older MB now but I paid to ship it to them ,so now I'm out mone...

Dependable board

Asher V., Newegg
3 September 2012
  • Summary: I'm using this board in my budget build. It's cool that it works with most any GPU, and is compatible with the Phenom II CPU's. I find it odd having no USB 3.0, but whatever. Also, the 24 pin connection is located on the side of the board toward the I/O shield and above the PCI slots, kind of an odd...
  • Pros: -Works great, even after a year! -Takes a good amount of RAM -Works with Phenom II's -PCI-e 2.0
  • Cons: -Oddly positioned 24 pin connection -No USB 3.0

  • Summary: I purchased 2 of these for gaming systems I was upgrading from 32 bit XP on a dual core systems to a 64 bit quad core systems. I was pleasantly surprised to find them red & black instead of the circus clown colors.
  • Pros: 1 year + and neither of the 2 have presented any problems. Speeds are acceptable for the games I play at ultra high graphic settings
  • Cons: No issues from the 2 motherboards I purchased

OK

  • Summary: Used with Athlon II X4 630.
  • Pros: Great budget motherboard.
  • Cons: No SATA3. No USB 3.0. After waking up from s3 sleep when CPU is overclocked, computer crashes. Even a tiny overclock of 1MHz on the bus causes this. Appears to be a motherboard issue. I avoid overclocking with this motherboard.

Not reliable

Michael E., Newegg
8 April 2012
  • Summary: This thing caused me a lot of pain, more than I ever want to experience with a computer. I kept getting Memory Management and IRQL BSODS constantly after playing DiRT 3 and some other games. Sometimes it just froze or rebooted with no warning.
  • Pros: It's still working, at least. Cool BIOS screen, and utility to change it, plus, I got the black and red version! It's beyond me why someone would be upset they didn't get the puke colored edition...
  • Cons: Poor slot quality. Had RAM slots 2 and 4 die to the point where it wont post if you have RAM in them. Completely lost Dual Channel capability. my 2 x 2GB sticks have to be alone in slots 1 and 3 to even post. Didn't have the thing in Dual Channel mode long enough to see if my performance even too...

  • Pros: I installed it and it was very fast. It boost my framerate from 40 to 60 in Batman arkham city. It made my system run smoother.
  • Cons: Driver CD was horrid and the format was old looking. The ethernet port seemed to be defective. I even installed the driver for the ethernet port.
