Summary: Current configuration: - AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus Quad-Core 3.0GHz CPU. - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes. - Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL9 @1.5V UDIMM 240-Pin Memory BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00.
Pros: - Bought this in December 2011 and it's still running fine. - This board *does* support 16GB RAM total (2 x 8GB).
Cons: When I was using this under Win XP Pro, I was able to use the onboard video (Radeon HD 4250) plus another video card (Radeon HD 5450) to have two monitors. A week ago I moved to Win 7 Pro (64-bit), and I'm currently unable to use the onboard video card (Windows reports that the device is stopped ...
Pros: simply great been using it for almost three years never had problems.... n going good n cheap too.... u can't find good motherboard this cheap n good, easy setup n u can get all the connection u got including HDMI... which I don't use coz I have GTX 550ti Graphic card

Summary: R.I.P my pr3cious Biostar 880G+. If I were Biostar , I would make sure I didn't make this MOBO available anymore. I'm kind of skeptical about buying from them again.
Pros: Used this in a build about 2+/- years ago. Was awesome.
Cons: Short life span. Slowly died on me. I did what I could to keep it running. Hardware changes , OS installs , yada yada. It finally died on me today while watching a DVD movie. During the movie , today , there were multiple memory crashes. Machine locked up , and wouldn't reboot. Not putting anymor...
Pros: Red matches my G.Skill memory. Nothing else!
Cons: I bought this board to use my old X2 240 Regor cpu in a HTPC I built for fun. Received the board and it was DOA so I RMA'd it and got a replacement. The 2nd and 3rd replacement boards were also DOA. I started to think it was another component so I tested everything else and it all tested good and...
