Summary: I put together a new build last week and this board seems to be defective. The computer simply does not boot, no beep (I heard that this board does not beep?), and no BIOS screen. I took it out of the case just to make sure I wasn't shorting it. Still nothing.
Summary: Hi, I just got this power supply and tried to assemble the new computer today. then, It doesn't work. I mean when I start the computer, then stopped working. I don't know why. a motherboard I bought is "BIOSTAR A880GU3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard" is this motherboard?
Pros: This board is cheap and simple, with many features you would only expect on something much more expensive. Biostar <the acronym of "For The Win">!
Cons: The lay out gets a bit cumbersome if you are expecting to pile a ton of stuff on the board, but that is to be expected with a board of this size. Also, had some trouble with the PATA connection needing drivers for the ODD I installed, IDK (no drivers from the installation disk resolved this issue...
Pros: Easy install, replacing a 770 MB that was failing. Booted fine on previous Vista install and new driver install was a breeze with supplied CD.

Summary: would buy again. my 1st build and the only thing i feared was having to rma something. bought every single part from newegg seperately and im glad i did. this came with a amd phenom 2 x4 965 combo and it runs everything awesome.
Pros: small, fast,quick install, booted up on the 1st try like a champ. iv'e had it for over 6 mos and not 1 hitch.awesome board for a budget build. my entire build was under 525.00 thanks to shell shocker deals
Cons: 2 dimm slots but i knew that. luckily, newegg has 4g gsklill sticks for 28.00 lol
