Great Budget Board

Ryan F., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: I would reccomend this board to anyone and would buy from Biostar again if it's what I'm in the market for.
  • Pros: This board is great for any budget build. The bios are good(I think) and the board itself is aesthetically attractive (I have the red version) and all of the ports are sturdy along with the headers. I bought this bord for the features/price ratio and would highly recommend it. OCing is doable but not the best on the market. The bridges run cool and the board's overall temperature is low. The sound is amazing and plate is quite sturdy.
  • Cons: This board has a x16 and a x4 PCIe slots wich is not very good for crossfire but it is possible. The main power connecter is a bit sticky but that is likely my PSUs fault.

Took a chance and it worked.

  • Pros: No problems for me. Easy enough to install all my components. Handles overclock well. Works well with my FX-6300 CPU and R9 270x GPU both overclocked along with the 8 Gigs of Corsair Vengeance Ram.
  • Cons: Only 2 fan connectors. Fixed buying a splitter so I can still use the PMW feature offered with the fans.

Excellent price/performance

martin i., Newegg

  • Summary: I have been building Pcs since 2003. I fail to believe the reviews from several of the folks who have posted a negative reviews on this product. For one, if you cross the HDD led and the power led on the board, you will only get a running fan and no beep or post. This leads me to believe that these guys should let someone, who knows what they are doing, put it together for them.
  • Pros: Supports DDR3 up to 1600 and 1866(OC). Board layout is simple and I never looked at the manual to set it up. Very responsive board and supports more processors and OS than most boards. Excellent features and has the typical features to set up a gaming rig or an ordinary rig for browsing the web. On first boot, recognized processor and all attached peripherals.
  • Cons: none. I could not find a spot to deduct one egg, based of specifications and performance.

great board for budget

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: This board is very versitile and reliable. Between CPU types and memory types this board has been easy to accommodate upgrades. Got it for cheap sad it's gone. Heat sinks on VMR and bridges. Love it. Thanks biostar. But sad to see it's not available anymore. Oc is simple but I don't need to.
  • Cons: no cons here other than you can't get them anymore.
