More Memory = slower performance

Jeffery W., Newegg
21 February 2013
  • Summary: 2500K i5 at 4200 stock voltages, could probably go higher at stock. Prime stable for 20 hrs, 50-52c highest temp. on air Turbo Tower Extreme room temp about 16c. This is not the best air cooler out there, there are better...it does a very good job though.
  • Pros: Will handle up to 32 GB of memory, but not at 2133. I got 16 GB of memory running at 1867 Prime stable for over 20 hours. Timings are: 8-10-10-29-14-242-7-6-7-24
  • Cons: If Biostar would update there bios so timings would better match larger memory kits that would be very nice. RFC only goes up to 255 and the more memory you have the larger this number needs to be. I need 278 to run 16 GB at 2133 and WR only goes to 14 and I need 16/17.

Great mobo with little bit of upgrade potential

Michael B., Newegg
26 November 2012
  • Summary: I have installed this mobo in 2 different cases and nothing broke. Don't overlock but from what I've seen in the BIOS and the provided TOVERCLOCKER it looks user friendly. BIOS posted first try when I put everything together. Would definitely reccommend this board.
  • Pros: USB 3.0 Ports Easy to use BIOS BIOS Remote is cool Decent amount of space between PCI-E slots General layout worked well with cable management in my case Great price for the features Working great after 10 months in my daily rig
  • Cons: No USB 3.0 headers even though it supports USB 3.0 BIOS manual is pretty sparse on information. I've had to use google extensively to figure everything out.

Excellent Board for the Money!!

Willease R., Newegg
29 April 2012
  • Pros: Excellent board for the money. I purchased this board for my first PC build and I am more than satisfied. Works well, BIOS is easy to navigate and offers alot of the features(usb3.0, hdmi, pci slots) of otherbrands at a lower price. Definitely a good board. TZ69A+ i7-2600k processor 16gigs memory...

My misread

Devan W., Newegg
27 April 2012
  • Summary: Make Sure you realize there is no onboard usb 3.0 just the to slots in the back of the motherboard. Isaw it in the features and I just figured it'd be onboard. Nope, I realize it's my fault that's why it stayed 5 eggs.
  • Pros: Good looking usb 3.0 ports 6gb/s slots overclocking ease
  • Cons: Not fulll atx size feels a bit on the flimsy side.

Decent Board, Great Price

Brent K., Newegg
26 April 2012
  • Summary: Some people are reporting the BIOS showing TZ68K+. The board I was sent is actually a TZ68K+ with a label over the name. The only differences between the two boards is that the TZ68K+ has an extra power phase that allows it to support more memory.
  • Pros: It's a fairly standard Z86 board. Great price makes it a great buy. Contacted tech support for an informational reason. Resonded within 24 hrs. BIOS easy to work with. A solid basic board.
  • Cons: Would be nice if it had more USB 2.0 ports on the back. Is slightly undersized, so the last row of mounting holes won't line up with most cases. Not really an issue as long as you're aware of when insterting memory or cables.

Working great!

Zachary K., Newegg
23 April 2012
  • Pros: Plug and play. Had no issues so far. Easy to overclock. I bought this board after my MSI mobo took a dumb 3 days after I got it together. This one has held up great and I like it a lot more then the MSI. i5-2550k 16gb ram 500watt PSU Antec 300 case
  • Cons: None so far

Solid board

John L., Newegg
17 April 2012
  • Summary: I downloaded all my drivers on another computer, so I can't speak to how well the install disk works. Running a Pentium G850 and a Radeon 6850 and it all works together well. Just a note, mounting-wise: The holes didn't match up with the mATX holes in my Cooler Master Elite 430.
  • Pros: Has everything I absolutely needed, and a couple things I was glad were there. Not that I used it, but the ability to Crossfire could be nice someday. 4 ram slots is handy; again not utilizing all at the moment. Having power/reset buttons was nice for testing the board before it was all assembled.
  • Cons: BIOS was very clunky using a mouse; ended up just using the keyboard instead.
