Failed after 12 Months

John B., Newegg
6 days ago
  • 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 systems - disconnecting my VGA - and even re-seating my CPU). None have worked, so the people I've consulted with have said it's most likely a motherboard failure.

Didnt Make it 2 Years

Mark G., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I'll see how well Biostar handles warranty/RMA's
  • Pros: Straight-forward install.
  • Cons: Only lasted 15 months. Slowly started producing blue screens, thought it might be memory so swapped it out, blue screens continued to get worse with time and system stopped hibernating entirely.

Great Mobo

Jeremy S., Newegg
18 August 2014
  • Summary: Great mobo for $50!
  • Pros: If you want a great mobo for fairly cheap, look no further. Easy install, looks great, and has everything I needed for a light to moderate gaming computer for my wife. It is running an overclocked fx6300 vishera 6 core beautifully.
  • Cons: None yet. It isnt all solid cap, but I knew that when I bought it.

excellent budget board

wesley z., Newegg
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Bought this board to replace my board out of my HP after a abrupt end... Was amazed how well everything fit in the case and every mount hole lined up! Used all my old hardware (processor, heatsink, RAM, hard drive, etc. Only draw back is OEM Windows on my original hard drive is locked out on this board due to licensing issues. :( So, for now I'm using Ubuntu. Thanks be to open source!
  • Pros: This board has everything you need to make a budget system.
  • Cons: None that I can think of.

Meh

Denis R., Newegg
18 July 2014
  • Pros: Replaced a bad motherboard. Swapped and worked without any problems. Completed updates on everything and it ran smooth. I'm up and running writing this review.
  • Cons: Nothing really - I went into this knowing there would be no USB 3.0 and that the motherboard is TINY. Updating this thing is like a dark art, HOW DO YOU UPDATE THE BIOS?

nice board

lidia a., Newegg
7 July 2014
  • Summary: buy this board it is inexpensive and work as expected and supports very fast cheap AMD processors
  • Pros: cheap and functional. This board replaced a $140 dollar board. I decided to go cheap because I have not seen any improvements in performance between cheap and expensive boards. This board has no problems and works as expected for half the price of the previous board.
  • Cons: none yet

Great board for the money

Packs C., Newegg
26 June 2014
  • Pros: Very cheap, supports cpu's up to fx 8350, very small so it fits in small cases.
  • Cons: well, the pcie x1 slot is 100% pointless if you use a dedicated graphics card, as a single slot card will cover it up entirely. Also, because this board only has a 3+1 power phase and a 4-pin cpu power connector, I would not trust a 125w cpu in it.
