Lasted longer than I expected

Blaine B., Newegg
9 July 2015
  • Summary: I've pushed this system way past its typical use case, and 3 years later it still works. I haven't touched any of the OC settings in the BIOS, which probably helps the longevity quite a bit. Biostar got it right, except for the NIC.
  • Pros: I purchased this 08/2012, and it's still working! Started as a low end system that has turned into a home workstation, and it handles well.
  • Cons: I've noticed the network interface resets frequently and sporadically, as others noted, but after 3 years, hardly a huge con. Just wish I didn't have to purchase a NIC because of component failure.

  • Pros: It works (except when it don't). Runs a (mostly) headless linux server and SEED box. Aside from the NIC it works great.
  • Cons: on-board NIC died after 3 months.

Terrible

Anthony B., Newegg
19 August 2013
  • Summary: I should have done a bit more research on this before I bought it. Doesn't have S3 sleep, and other boards have better bios settings and features like core unlocks, etc.
  • Pros: Good for testing
  • Cons: No S3 sleep

  • Pros: Great little motherboard, 2 years strong.
  • Cons: Thinking it was my old computer case, I never really looked into it but it wouldn't recognize the front usb/ audio port. This is the ONLY reason It does not have 5 stars from me
