awesome mobo

yahya, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: i like it, it have done the work now for almost 2 years. ive had some issues but they are not that bad. first, when it was about a 10 months old, computer froze, and then it didnt want to turn on agian. i got scared and thought that my graphic card got burned or smthg. i remove ram and computer turned on pc and it worked without ram, so i noticed that mobo had a bad ram port. so i just didnt use the bad port.

Everything I wanted

Jason, Amazon
15 March 2012
  • Summary: This board has worked very well. It's been about 4 months and it is still running perfectly. I haven't tried crossfire, but be forewarned: from what I read, when you run two video cards on this board, they will not both run at x16, they will both run somewhere around x8. I've not seen this officially, but I have seen it on multiple forums and sites.

Good Board may be broken, FX compatiblity?

T. McLean, Amazon
8 November 2011
  • Summary: Bought this motherboard and it always had to be powered off then on again to boot it. Didnt think much of it so then i went to put in a new FX processor and the cpu fan wont spin at all. I hope my motherboard is the problem not the processor. Update when i figure this out *Update* When i tryed putting my old processor in the mobo it refused to boot and i had to buy a new one. I'd have to say it was good while it lasted but i wouldn't recommend it.

Good board, but does not supply a UUID

Dusty Wilson, Amazon
4 November 2011
  • Summary: The board is just fine. For typical users, you'll probably love it. We certainly have liked it for pretty much everything. Except... We have been using this board for a customer. When using something like Windows Deployment Services, you have to have a unique UUID for each system. Typically, this is created and defined by the motherboard manufacturer (Biostar, in this case).

Excellent motherboard! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

tg, Amazon
23 September 2011
  • Summary: I have owned great Biostar motherboards for several years, and this one is no exception. Don't be chased off by the lower quality of Biostar's budget boards, because these higher-end boards are apparently what they focus their time on! Excellent, intuitive BIOS settings, a high range of compatibility with parts I have tested, and a sleek red-and-black look on black silicon that is so much more appealing than the basic greens and pastel colors that several motherboards...

Good board for a power AMD build

Whtwolf "JP", Amazon
13 September 2011
  • Summary: I went with this board for my 6 core 1090T 125W build, and have been pleased with its performance. It has 6 SATA 3 connections for the latest hard drives like the OCZ vertex III drive that I used for my boot drive, and the WD 1tb 6gb/sec black for additional space. I popped in 16gb of DDR3 ram, and all was recognized from the first boot. The only reason why I did not give it 5 stars, was that it only had one other sys fan connection other than the CPU fan.

Great Motherboard For The Price

Andrew J. Linsenbardt, Amazon
1 September 2011
  • Summary: It's a relatively cheap AM3 motherboard, but thus far, it appears to work reliably well! The main thing I wanted was four DDR3 slots, and there aren't many options in this price range that have this feature. I would recommend you look at the supported RAM types before purchasing this board, as it did not work with the GSkill Value RAM I bought initially. The system would not POST and I was racking my brain trying to figure out why.

Great board!

WalCs, Amazon
14 August 2011
  • Summary: In very simple and short terms, this motherboard is great for the price. Pros: 1)The decent space between the CPU socket and the RAM slots allowed me to BARELY fit 4x4 RAM in with a CM Hyper 212+ with it's original 120mm fan. 2)2x PCIE (x16,x4), it's not for SLI or Crossfire because the x4 slot, and the slots are a little too close if you do decide to put another card with a fan. the Graphics also covers up one of the PCIE x1 slots.
