1 out of 5 eggsWorst product, don't buy BIOSTAR

Pros: Really nothing more than dual CPU Socket Type

Cons: worst support..
if you buy it before 2011 you are on your own, doesn't matter even if it a manufacturing defect.

Other Thoughts: The company biostar itself not confident to offer warranty more than a year.

I bought this late 2010 and within the initial few months I was getting hickups, the pc shutdown itself after few hours. I thought it might be the RAM issue, change and put different kind of RAM. but problem stays there, I replaced the power supply but again same issue.

At the end when nothing works and suddenly the motherboard start acting up and not accepting the memory in both of the banks, take out from one bank works, but not with both...

Tried doing RMA but ofcourse was not aware that only 1 year warranty was offered with this product.

Anyway, that was my last biostar motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Inexpensive but there are better choices for the $$$

Pros: Inexpensive. OC's pretty well and supports many types of Ram chips. I bought this from a local retailer as it was bundled with a CPU for less than 20 bucks. Easy to install. Using a SATA drive you can have Windows installed and the build completed in under 2 hours easily. Biostar's e-mail support responded to me in under 2 hours.

Cons: First of all I cannot get this thing to load Windows from and IDE drive. I have tried using both Win 7 and XP. It loads the OS from the CD/DVD but when it reboots it says "disk error--press CTRL-ALT-DEL to reboot"...every time. Not 1 time would the Windows installation complete. It will reboot fine and complete the installation process using a SATA drive no problem but no configuration using an IDE drive will work. I tried the DVD drive as both master/slave and the HDD as both master/slave. I tried changing them both to Cable select and 1 master/1 cable select. I changed their positioning on the IDE cable...nothing I did allowed the Windows installation to complete. I even tried different RAM chips. I even tried an identical (returned to store) board...same problem.

The board does not support HT3. It maxes out to HT1 or 1000MT/s and doesn't support 125W CPU's. This info is available on Biostar's website. It does not have an HDMI output. No ACC support. Uses the AMI bios

Other Thoughts: I was building this system using the existing components of a previous system for a friend to keep the costs down. I normally would have used a SATA drive for my own build. For the money the Gigaby** GA-MA78LM-S2H (Item#:N82E16813128408) motherboard is a MUCH BETTER choice in this price range. The Gigaby** board supports ACC, HT3 (5200 MT/S) has an HDMI output, uses the Award bios which is very nice and has lots of OC features and supports the PH II X6 CPU's. I have only built around 40~50 systems so take my advice for what its worth. I have used Gigaby**, As** and DF* boards and this is the first board that I have ever had give me this much trouble. I must have tried installing Windows 10-15 times before returning the board for its identical replacement only to have it do the same thing.

5 out of 5 eggsoverclock

Pros: Solid board at a great price. Which is to be expected from biostar. I got this and the AMD 635 Athlon as a combo. The PCI bus is auto lock. Which is great. I have it overclocked here are the Specifications. Tested with 24hrs of prime95 and 1hr of occt. So I am very happy with the board and would recommend it.

FSB 221mhz
AMD 635 cpu at 1.4v with 221x14.5=3204.5mhz
Crucial Ballistix Tracer 1066 2GB dual channel at 2.15v 6-6-6-18 with 221x5.33=1177.93mhz
Northbridge chipset at 221x9=1989mhz Default votage

Cons: Not a Full Size ATX. Micro :(
Only one Video Card Slot :(
Solid Capacitors where you need them :)
But not all of the Capacitors are Solid :(
Manual is on a cd. :(

Other Thoughts: Had to print out the manual. Really, No paper manual. I guess i'll go along with it if it keeps cost down.

5 out of 5 eggsNice replacement for ECS A740GM-M

Pros: Great feature list for home server PC. Ubuntu server installed on ECS A740GM-M booted up without change. Six sata channel support on microATX is awesome.

Cons: Like the ECS A740GM-M board it replaced, one of the motherboard holes isn't near a header.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect budget board

Pros: I bought this with Athlon II X2 for a semi-budget build. The board has nice feel to it and doesn't look too cheap at all (for the price). Bios has decent amount of features and options.
-Windows 7 installation went without a hitch, it automatically installed all drivers and runs without a problem. The built in ATI graphics scores 3.9 and 4.6 in windows experience index, more than enough for business/home users who don't game or do too much photo and video edits.
-Installed Ubuntu 9.10 for a dual boot and it also installed all the drivers and came up without any issues.
-Surprisingly this board has serial port and parallel port headers which may be handy for an office machine build to connect to older components.

Cons: As with many other mATX boards, one PCI slot will be unusable after putting in a graphics card.

5 out of 5 eggssolid board on the cheap

Pros: A very solid ‘no headaches’ little board if you’re looking to build an inexpensive system that you can rely on. It handled the Athlon II 635 X4 I paired it with without a hitch—one of easiest builds I’ve ever had and I’ve put a bunch of ‘em together over the years. I never even had to take the CD out it’s sleeve. Windows 7 found every driver—not a single exclamation mark in device manger. Run like a dream.

Athon II X4 635

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Very nice board over all.
HD 3000 is no power house but packs enough power to do almost anything you need.
Bios is pretty simple and strait forward and has plenty of options.
AM2+ Got a Athlon II 250 in it and it's running amazingly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Took me a few looks at the bios to figure out how to overclock but after I figured it out it's easy.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Server Board

Pros: Supports ECC memory. If you email Biostar, they will say that this board does not support ECC. However, there are ECC options in the motherboard (you can see them in the downloadable manual); likewise, memtest86 detects the ECC capabilities. There are fairly detailed threads about this board on SilentPCReview and HardForum that explore the ECC situation.

This board also has very low power consumption. Note the simple VRM area: that means the board will not support high-wattage CPUs, but I consider that a positive. Pair this board with a low-wattage CPU, and you have an excellent platform for a very low power fileserver/NAS box. Again on SilentPCReview, there is a thread that details a configuration that uses less than 30 watts AC.

A final major win for me is that the PCIe x16 slot can be used for more than just video. Some boards, e.g. the Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2, only support video cards in the x16 slot.

Cons: For the price, I don't think there are any real cons. It would be nice if Biostar "officially" supported ECC. Other minor points/nice-to-haves: a bigger northbridge/GPU heatsink (although I haven't had any problems at all); all solid capacitors. These are extremely minor quibbles in an otherwise very high value motherboard.

Other Thoughts: No problems/works great with Linux. The CentOS 5.x driver for the LAN chipset (Realtek 8111C) is too old, but you can download the newer driver from Realtek. Newer distributions probably include this driver by default.

For about six months, I've been running a fileserver built on this motherboard, AMD 5050e CPU, 2x2GB ECC RAM, and 4x1TB RAID5 (using Linux's excellent "md" software RAID). The system has been running 24/7 with zero problems.

I bought this board "open box" on a whim, and am now considering buying a second just because I believe it's such a great value. The low-power features plus ECC options make it an extremely rare find at this price point (even at 2x the price it would be a good value).

5 out of 5 eggsAlways a good brand

Pros: This was the 5th Biostar board I have bought over the last 2 years. I have never had a problem with this board. Install in case/put in CPU connect power and extras/turn on, and away you go.

Cons: 24port and 4 port power needed on board. That's it. that's the only thing I can say bad about the board.

Other Thoughts: Biostar has a loyal customer in me for a long long time :D
Extremely satisfied.

4 out of 5 eggsBought for Dad

Pros: I needed to get dad out of the stoneage and into the future. This mobo did just that.
I paired with AMD x2 brisbane 5200+ 2.7 GHz
2gb OCZ platnum
his old hard drive and dvd
585 watt power unit
the onboard graphics were fine for him
(can you believe the GPU ran mercinaries 2 on low and 768x1024 I couldnt.
For $200 and his old part's he was out of the stoneage.

Cons: not really for gaming but if you add 4gb ram, a dual core cpu, and decent graphic card, it will shock you.

For my app there's no con's

Other Thoughts: Biostar makes decent boards as of late and I'v started giving them a chance. I wile back I got the TF-8200 heat pipe edition for me and paired with 2.7 brisbane x2, 4 GB OCZ sli RAM, and a XFX 9800GT 256bit GDDR3 512mb
and hybrid SLI'd it to run every game i threw at it.
