Working, but will never buy again

Patrick S., Newegg

  • Summary: I'm not sure if this is a Windows 8 mess or a BIOSTAR mess, but my HTPC this board serves is running Win 64bit and needs the Windows Boot Manager selected as Boot 1 option in order to find Windows at all. I usually like selecting my Sata DVD/Blu Ray drive as the 1st boot option in case I have a bootable CD in the drive bay I'd like to load before Windows, but when I select the Sata drive as Boot 1 and Windows Boot Manager as Boot 2, then my OCZ SSD boot drive as Boot...
  • Pros: Paired with an F1 3870k APU it serves as the motherboard for my HTPC and home central server. So far is working well. Overclock features are nice, but won't get used much in this build. All SATA 6.0Gb/s ports are nice. Works with S.Skill 1866mhz 16gb DDR3 memory (2x8gb).
  • Cons: Call me picky, but this board lacks quite a few features that I wish it had. The fan controls are garbage and lack the real user control that other boards I own have. The BIOSTAR website is pretty weak as well for drivers and support.

  • Summary: Some people say they are having problems updating the bios....well it really isnt that difficult no offense but they just dont know what they are doing. This mobo definitely is not for a beginner. amazing for an htpc and for gaming.
  • Pros: I like the bios and the software and pretty much everything about the board does an amazing job WHEN IT WORKS.
  • Cons: Like others have stated previously their tech support is garbage, extreme garbage. When i turn it on i get a black screen i have to hit reset about three times before it sends video this is really ridiculous and the error codes arent defined in the manual which sucks.

So Far So Good

  • Summary: After all the rebate horror stories, I tried it myself. My invoice date was dated four days after my purchase. Just enough to knock me out of a rebate.
  • Pros: Good budget board
  • Cons: NEVER use rebate in decision to buy

OK motherboard

  • Summary: I wouldn't recommend this motherboard to anyone. I bought this one because it had a rebate, and I didn't have too much money.
  • Pros: All components work
  • Cons: The bios is not very good. I cant control my CPU fan very well, and my DDR3 1866 is recognized by bios at 1333 with updated bios.
