Summary: I'm going to start off by saying that I bought this on Newegg and they no longer supply this model, so I thought that I'd write a review where it could be useful. I've had this board for a little over a year now and I am Very surprised at how well it delivered but don't let me fool you into thinking that this is the board for you. Pros: $$$ It is cheap. I've had it for a good while and not had any problems with it.
Summary: GREAT motherboard for price. Posted immediately and bios was pretty easy to deal with. Recognized everything right away. A lot of people don't read the part about the memory going up to 2000oc is only available with 2 RAM modules. If you use 4 modules, you can only go up to 1600. Pros- Great price No issues cons- psu was hard to connect to main power. Don't know if it was PSU of MB. Not a major deal though. If this review was helpful, please click the yes button below.
Summary: After I set up the computer, I was surprised to find that the mobo was dead. I figured it was just a simple problem so I returned it and got another. The second was also dead. I subsequently read the reviews for this product on Newegg, and quickly found out that the board is constantly broken when it arrives. Avoid the hassle. It's worth spending more money and buying from a more trustworthy brand than biostar.
Summary: Worked good enough for a budget board, for the first 6 months. Eventually began to experience random shutdowns without error messages or other hardware crashes. Found out that this board has quality issues and problems with random bent pins on the power connectors. Stay away from this mobo.
Summary: I bought this board as a replacement for an MSI board that was DOA; that one was a replacement for a board that died in my box. This BioStar went in, fired up, and no problems at all. Great little board, and more SATA ports and USB ports than the more expensive MSI board! The only problem (if you want to call it that) was with the software -- the NIC driver update on the CD caused the NIC to stop working, but rolling the driver back and then getting the latest update...
Summary: I Have bought this about a year ago and it is outstanding for the price it is out for, while I recommend getting at least the gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 (Mostly because it supports SLI) I have overclocked the AMD Phenom ii x4 without any problem especially after getting a liquid cooling system.
Summary: I got this motherboard as a replacement for a 790FX motherboard I was going to use in another "spare parts" PC build. Didn't want to invest too much since I use only single video cards, will be moving a couple year old Phenom II to it and am not sure if I'll be staying with AMD in the future. This board fit the bill perfectly. I purchased it at an Amazon competitor for a mere $54.99 and its worth every penny.
Summary: to start off i was worried about buying a product that is so under the radar that it only has 2 reviews on amizon. but i am vary pleased with this product. on other sites it was stated to be to big for there case. this seems more like builder error not the mbos problem because it fit perfectly in my case and its one of the smaller mid towers you can buy. others also commented on quality and damage from the factory.
Summary: My asus died, and I got this because of the features and price point. The 64gb ram capacity is awesome. With just this motherboard and keeping all my old parts, the performance increase was massive, startup times and game lag were no longer issues.
