  • 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.
