Buy ME

Mario C., Newegg
24 January 2015
  • Pros: This replaced a dead MOBO - it went in super easy! That's what she said! Basically plug and play. BIOS update was smooth like butter and easy as chedda!
  • Cons: There are some features I wish it had, but I bought it for what it is - not what I wish it was.

Cooling issues that limit perfomace

Everett D., Newegg
29 December 2014
  • Summary: It's a cheap board. Once I replace the Northbridge heatsink, the board should work fine. SETUP: FX 6300 PNY GTX 750ti G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600 LOGISYS Computer PS550E12 550W
  • Pros: - Small - Cheap - IDE port - Supports FX - "Decent" overclocking support | Not really what this board is meant for. - Besides cooling problems the board has been working fine for the last year and a half. I haven't used the onboard graphics. My gtx 750ti works fine with the board. Audio quality i...
  • Cons: Northbridge is overheating with my FX 6300. I have 3 case fans that provide decent airflow. My FX stays at 50-55C, but the Northbridge skyrockets to 65C under any kind of load. Once it reaches 65C it underclocks my FX to prevent it from overheating. This means I get horrible performance whenever ...

Sketchy

Charles F., Newegg
25 October 2014
  • Summary: I've had pretty good luck with Biostar, this is the first board I've ever gotten from them that didn't last very long. This doesn't turn me off of Biostar really, but I'm aggrivated.
  • Pros: Price, features based on price
  • Cons: purchased this board 9/23/2013, it is now 10/25/2014, just over a year and the board is failing. It runs fine for a few hours then freezes. Last night I swore it was trying to keep from ordering a new MB, because it would freeze as soon as I went to NewEgg to select a new one. Thought it was the ...

Awesome minus the USB ports

Anonymous, Newegg
23 October 2014
  • Summary: Wish the return policy was longer because all problems started a month or two after the purchase of board. Or even if there was a way of fixing this issue...
  • Pros: Great price. Works great with my FX-6300 at stock speeds.
  • Cons: I've tried using a USB wifi adaptor in literally every port on the board and even the ones for the front of my case with no luck at all (and yes I've tested it on another PC). Not only that but has been the problem with controllers and now USB mice.

  • Summary: Throttles an FX6300, even when underclocked to 3000mhz. Won't boot pc unless unplugged. Will not charge any CMOS batteries, so I cant save bios settings. Pool caller errors galore. All problems went away when replacing motherboard.

Failed after 12 Months

John B., Newegg
15 September 2014
  • Summary: Contacted the manufacturer's e-support directly on Saturday and have still yet to hear back from them.
  • Pros: Ran well while it lasted. Easy instructions to put it together.
  • Cons: Lasted well for 11 months, then started getting some BSOD. About 2 weeks ago, it started freezing and shutting down. Went to restart it and it won't recognize the monitor. Have tried all the other types of troubleshooting (switching RAM slots, trying a brand new RAM, using the MOBO's video system...
