Summary: Check reviews on overclocking. Does closer to high end Asus boards than Gigabyte. Looks great for Red team builds. Has UEFI Bios with mouse input. Auto overclock needs improvement. Has a weird molex port to provide "extra" power to PCI lanes for "high end" gpus. It is recommended to use this regardless according to customer support.
Summary: This review is not about this specific product but about BIOSTAR warranty coverage. Two years ago I bought the motherboard A760GM2+ in a retail store. The board failed some weeks ago but when I contacted Biostar they told me the motherboard was not covered by the warranty because they sold this motherboard to the retailer more than 3 years ago (the board has a 3 year warranty). They told me to contact the retailer to get covered by the warranty.
Summary: Well I really liked the board, its very well finished. Very good board for the money! Worked just great, I replaced my asus M3A78-EM, and it worked even without a clean windows install. (did it later anyway). So far I'm happy with the board! Pros: very well made, works great on windows 8, very easy to install. Great cost benefit cons: The system fan are only 3 pin, so it gets loud if you own performance fans.
Summary: Bought this for myself for Christmas and right not it has a FX-8120 OCed to a conservative 4Ghz. Board is rock solid and the Bios is easy to set up. This is my 2nd Biostar MB and what sealed the deal is the rock solid reliability of my old board; which is still going strong on my old workstation. I'm sure I will have years of trouble free service out of the TA990FXE.
Summary: Why over pay for name brands when you can get quality circuitry for less? My Biostar MoBo has been holding strong for a month and I haven't even tried overclocking it yet! I love the temp gage on the board considering I have a window in my case for it. The only sad thing, and I think this is all AMD boards, is that the PCI slot is only 2.0 so 3.0 graphics cards are not compatible.
Summary: Pros: Wow, there's a lot. The bios is great. This is the first UEFI BIOS I've used, and I've been very happy with it. One pro that stands out to me is the CPU temp readout directly on the board. If you have a case with an acrylic side panel, it's pretty handy. I had no problem with any of the layout. The chipset heatsinks are pretty large, but didn't get in the way of anything. I really can't say enough good things about this board. It's well designed and performs great.
Summary: He comprado un Biostar Motherboard TA990FXE ,hasta el momento la he probado con varios overclocking de forma automatica que me permite hacer la tarjeta y solo tuve problema con uno ,lo quite y lo he hecho de forma manual y progresiva viendo los resultados de como trabaja ,por supuesto no me extralimito mi procesador es un El procesador AMD Phenom II X6 1075T y hasta el momento no he tenido inconveniente y he notado un mejor rendimiento que con la GA-890GPA-UD3H que tenia...
Summary: I bought this motherboard because it had all of the features I was looking for (crossfire support at 16x, usb 3.0, fast RAM speeds and AM3+ socket) it delivered on everything I was looking for. The only problems I've encountered were that the documentation is a little lacking, and the BIOS is a little awkwardly laid out. It's nice that it's GUI, but the organization is pretty strange.
Summary: First I must state that I was building this for a friend, and he was very pleased with the result at a final price of $712 (Without OS) for a gaming PC that can make Crysis 2 and Skyrim cry. I will include the exact specs below. When I built this PC, it was the first one I was told to pay specific attention to looks on. My pal doesn't know a thing about computer hardware, so I just picked as much AMD things as I could and tried to make everything red.
