Summary: This motherboard is really awesome. I couldn't ask for more. I bought 2 of these because I wanted a windows 7 system and a windows XP system to run some older software. Both boards work flawlessly with both operating systems because there is full support for both of them.
Summary: 4 stars because the jury's still out on durability. The board's been running my pc for only a week. This is my first Biostar motherboard so I'm not sure what to expect. The box says 100% solid capacitors, FWIW.
Summary: I purchased this to build a computer for a friend. For the build, I used: - Biostar Intel LGA1155 Z77 - EVGA GeForce GT 640 2048MB GDDR3 - Intel Core i5-3470 Ivy Bridge 3.2GHz - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) - COOLER MASTER Elite 330 - Western Digital WD200JD - LITE-ON 24X...
Summary: This motherboard has everything I need, SATA 3 6gbp/s, LGA 1155 socket for Intel i processors, USB 3, and PCi-E 3.0 I'm don't do any overclocking at all but Biostar provides you with easy way to do so if your into that.
Summary: I dont have a proper heatsink yet so i can't talk about overclocking, but this board is stable and hasnt given me any problems what so ever, 32Gigs of hyperx and a core i5 3570k, runs all my Hyperv VM's on windows 8. No issues with gtx670 either.
Summary: When I unpacked the Motherboard I noticed the CPU slot had no protective cover on it.And when I had more time I took a magnifing glass and took a very close look at the pins on the CPU slot and found three pins bent! At this point the board is no use to me .I have wasted $78.00 EBay can you help me?
Summary: After my first motherboard died I spent a good week looking for a replacement. I decided to go with Biostar and I couldn't be happier! Everything works great and worked the first time (great for a noob like me). Paired this one with an i5-3470, 8gb of PNY ram, AMD 7850 and a Seagate Barracuda.
Summary: I have a Sandisk SDD, Gigabyte 560Ti, Intel i5 3550 3.3 GHz, and ASUS XonarDG sound card, 2x Corsair 1600 MHz RAM. Coupled with a Corsair CPU cooler, the board is well-spaced enough to fit everything. Great performance so far, my CPU is the bottleneck at this point (should've gotten an OCable CPU).
