Great while it lasted

Patriotic, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: This motherboard performed great with an Athlon x4 640 and 4g patriot sector 5. I built the machine as a presentation computer running slides, video, audio, and web content on 3 displays. It ran great for about a year at which point it started having an occasional issue powering up.

Two for Two

Damon J., Newegg
25 July 2012
  • Summary: I've been doing the Newegg thing since about 2000 and had great service always. Newegg was very responsive (as always) and approved my RMAs and the refund quickly. Still, the shipping time and the expense made this a really tedious experience.
  • Pros: Price & features
  • Cons: Didn't read enough reviews on the Biostar I guess. My experience seems common for this board. I always bought Asus boards (11 times so far) and never had a single problem. I'm a long time Newegg customer and bought this mbd because of the price, the features and because I like Newegg. Well, it lo...

Great eComStation board

John D., Newegg
20 June 2012
  • Summary: I am using this board for a eComStation File Server. Works fully with eComStation 2.1 including USB, SATA, network, and sound. So far, this is the best eComStation board I have installed. Tested with CentOS, openSuse, and Slackware and all are perfectly stable / fully functional.
  • Pros: 100% solid capacitors. Lots of PCIe slots. ATX form factor with great layout. Multi Core support. Perfectly stable with Windows, Linux or eComStation.
  • Cons: None

  • Pros: 140w TDP, USB 3, SATA 3, Good layout, Fully adjustable BIOS with unlocker. The fourth Biostar board I've owned... second Tseries.

Dead on arrival, VGA error

Francois B., Newegg
4 June 2012
  • Summary: Going to get a refund and go for another brand. Never owned Biostar before, and I'm rather disappointed.
  • Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, compact, and price.
  • Cons: VGA error. First thought that it was my card (it was old) so tried an ancient PCI card and another, known-to-be-working PCI-E card, and both came back with VGA error.

Follow-up for my first review

Thu H., Newegg
27 May 2012
  • Summary: See my first review.
  • Pros: Hi, I installed this board in a Raidmax Skyline case and it was like a heaven match for these two. Temperature I measured with fully loaded game playing at high settings (Battle field 3, Diablo II) was never passed 55 degree Celsius, me and my friends owed several Raidmax cases and they 're all v...
  • Cons: Match this board with Raidmax cases they 're extremely reliable and the color will look very nice through the side window , wifey won't complain for sure. Plus Raidmax RMA&customer service are very polite and professional. I like their non-hassles warranty, no questions asked you e-mail them the ...

Fired right up!

Robb L., Newegg
25 May 2012
  • Pros: Having owned several Biostars in the past, I was at first reluctant due to their product support in the past. When I saw their website now and how much better it is and constantly up to date it is for their products, I went with this for a friend's build. Very pleased! Good features, good quality...
