Biostar TA990FXE Motherboard Review

ChannelPro Network
3 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Before we take a look at Biostar’s new 990FX motherboard, let’s first go over what this new AMD chipset has to offer. There aren’t a whole lot of differences between the 890 and the 990 chipset. The main difference between the two has to do with new technologies that are supported. One of the main new technologies that are supported with this new chipset is support for nVidia’s SLI technology.

22 December 2011
  • Summary: The AMD 990FX chipset has been out for a while now, yet Biostar's TA990FXE motherboard still gets you in the game with plenty of PCI Express lanes for Crossfire/SLI, and more SATA III connectivity than rival Intel's Z77 platform.

BIOSTAR TA990FXE AMD 990FX Motherboard Review

Legit Reviews
2 December 2011
  • Excerpt: BIOSTAR is one of those companies that has developed a rough reputation over the years. Lately, though, BIOSTAR has been working on changing the view that many have. Truth be told, I probably wouldn’t have considered using a BIOSTAR in the past. Being in the unique position that the review staff is in at Legit Reviews, we get to play with a number of products that we wouldn’t be able to use otherwise.

Biostar TA990FXE AM3+

8 November 2011
  • Summary: We spent a couple of weeks with the Biostar TA990FXE before beginning our review. During that time we were very impressed with the board's abilities, as we were fully aware of the board's retail pricing @ $129.99. With the pricing in mind, we didn't really expect a lot and were left surprised that there was not one specific area where we could find the board's design limiting our overclocks compared to other products.
  • Pros: Packed with added features not seen on some other products in the same price range., Clean, color-themed and traditional layout., EFI bios with support for 3 TB+ drives., Fully functional UEFI BIOS, including mouse support., VRM capable of 300W, near double AMD CPU TDPs., Exceptionally low price puts the TA990FXE's offered features as unbeatable for the price., Overclocks just as well as many higher-priced products.
  • Cons: Lack of an included accessory to make use of the USB 3.0 front panel header, and only four SATA cables in the box., Crossfire limited by slot configuration, leaving no space between dual VGAs for airflow., Not all software fully operational., Old-School analogue VRM is not the most efficient, and does put out a fair bit of heat.
