Low Cost

thomas h., Newegg
1 August 2014
  • Pros: Low cost. Poor lay out of power connector in relation with the DDR memory slots. Missing the back panel bracket to mount a standard Intel heat sink and fan. I don't understand why all these ppls have DOA MBs. I have been building multiple computer using all the vendors and never had a bad one from the box.
  • Cons: Lacking bracket as noted above. No mounting hardware: screws, etc.

Douglas B., Newegg
1 April 2014
  • Summary: Computer died after 3 weeks of use and when the customer returned to the shop she informed me that she brought it to "geek squad" and they said the mother board was bad.
  • Pros: Looked like it had good specs
  • Cons: According to "geek squad" DOA made me look really really bad.

Flaws in board design

Anonymous, Newegg
23 March 2014
  • Pros: The board looked great in the case. :)
  • Cons: This board is not designed well. Look at the position of the memory slots and 24+ pin connector. In my case, my power supply 24+ rail was too short to allow connection to the board with a memory stick in. Some would say its a PSU/case flaw but most other micro ATX boards have the slots and connector straight across from the peripheral panel. The stretch was so tight it was bending the board upwards once properly connected. I was never able to power on the board becaus...

susana r., Newegg
18 March 2014
  • Summary: Iam using this mother board to power an ivy bridge Celeron g1610 and it works great I honestly thought that this board wouldn't work because of how cheap it was but it completely blew my mind away I should honestly be buying more of these for how cheap they are
  • Pros: The pros of this mother board is definitively its price point and also that hey its a really stable and reliable mother and for 36 bucks thats just crazy
  • Cons: Cons none for this price point

DOA and Poor CPU Support

Alexander C., Newegg
17 March 2014
  • Summary: I've had good success with biostar in the past. Don't treat that as a repersentation of the company as a whole.
  • Pros: Low price. PCI Express Slot x1 on the other side of the video card so if a double wide card is installed the PCIex1 Slot isn't blocked. However it also means that double wide video cards can't be used in ITX cases. However I doubt that is a good idea anyways
  • Cons: Dead on arrival. Doesn't support the Ivybridge G1620 Celeron (according the biostar website) and it didn't work with my Penitum G2020 which is supported.

Good boards

Blair N., Newegg
6 March 2014
  • Summary: For the price of the board, there is nothing I can find wrong with it. I did not expect it to come bristling with options. It is the perfect little board for a small home machine that you just want to use to do some light gaming on and work on. If you want tons of slots for extra junk you will probably never need, then look somewhere else. I will probably be buying a third board for a new build soon. For this price, I should be stocking up on them.
  • Pros: Nice and small. Fits into any case. Good for the small builds that seem to be getting more popular. Socket 1155 and it will support right up to the the top i7 processors. Been running 2 of these on machines I built for around the house, and do not regret buying these boards at all.
  • Cons: None so far. Run one of my machines with an i3 3220 with an AMD 7750 perfectly.

Questionable QC

Lawrence D., Newegg
12 February 2014
  • Summary: If the manufacturer ever reads this, please check that QC at the factory making these does a better job.
  • Pros: None at the moment
  • Cons: DOA

DOA

Anonymous, Newegg
8 February 2014
  • Pros: Besides that it came dead, it was a good board for working with. My hands could fit in for plugging in cables and different parts didn't overlap or interfere with each other during installation (sometimes the CPU fan covers a RAM slot, which was not true for this board.).
  • Cons: Sadly, it came DOA so I returned it and got a different MoBo.
