Summary: GTAV is completely unplayable when using an FX-8350 and this MB. Every 30 seconds the FPS dips down into the low teens. Swapped out to a different MB and this problem went away. I am DONE buying cheap MBs.
Cons: Says in the product description that it handles FX chips. Put in an FX-8350, and while I can boot to windows, I get MAJOR FPS drops in CPU-intensive games. This MB simply cannot handle the power-draw of a 125w chip at full load. Tried my exact same PC setup with a different MB and the minimum FPS...
Summary: i got this motherboard with a complete pc combo. i put it together and it works fine. i took and egg off of every product in this combo because with the combo $80 discount i could have put together a combo i would have liked better
Pros: it works good and it supports a lot of ram (not that i can afford a lot)
Cons: it should have more dummy compatible overclocking
Cons: I was building my first PC Budget rig, so I decided to go with this motherboard. When I finally got all my pieces together, my PC wouldn't turn on and I swapped out this motherboard and it was the culprit.
Summary: I saw many other reviews on here of people saying its DOA. With this motherboard you have to place and screw into stands wherever there is a white circle around the screw hole, otherwise it will not boot. I had to drill a hole in my case to place a stand for it to work.
Pros: Everything worked just as advertised and you can't really get a better price for a board like this. Use a amd 8350 with a gtx 760 and 12gb ram.
Summary: It's a great board nothing wrong with it besides the screw holes not matching the stated ATX form factor.
Pros: Works like a champ and runs my FX-6300 OC at 4.5ghz no problem.
Cons: Went to install it in my ATX case and some of the screw holes matched up and others didn't. For my case some screws had to go into the ATX holes and others had to go into flex ATX holes. It is weird but nothing bad.
Summary: First time Biostar user, and last unfortunately. Stick to the more reliable brands from now on.
Pros: Spartan specs on paper, nothing fancy. Affordable.
Cons: Had doubts after about a day, the machine would start up slowly. I mean like close to 2-2.5 minutes. Performance grew progressively worse until on day two even complete battery reset could not get the thing to POST.
