1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Decent for the price.

Cons: Mine came with neither of the B channel RAM slots working. I didn't fully realize that was the issue for some time. When I finally got new RAM to change what I initially had, that's when I realized it was a board issue.

I was still under warranty at that time, and emailed them about the issue. I never got a reply.

Other Thoughts: I wont be buying another Biostar product. I don't enjoy being completely ignored.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Out of the box

Pros: N/A

Cons: Out of the box it functions but does not work like it should. Only 3.99GB available out of 8, SLI mode does not work, cannot update bios, cannot overclock, cannot plugin USB storage devices. I have BOSE speakers(USB) and they are now crackly sounding, I assume because of the board. I have two GTX 560s, I have three SATA HDs and one SATA DVD drive and I can only plug in three of those SATA devices as the cards cover up the plugs. I have not tried plugging in a right angled SATA plug but I am weary of it fitting.

Other Thoughts: I am hoping to get a new BIOS chip from biostar within the next week. I hope that fixes ALL of my issues. If you are willing to roll the dice and get a bad board, or a good board, feel free to buy this MOBO, otherwise, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME. I got this board thursday of last week and I will probably not be able to use it to its full potential until the end of next week...

1 out of 5 eggscmos issues, Biostar tech support said i needed a part, still no response

Pros: None yet

Cons: Board has cmos check sum error, will not update bios. Only recognizes 3 gb ram out of 8gb ram.

Other Thoughts: Contacted Biostar was told by tech support I need a new bios chip, but I had to open a ticket because tech support could not help me. I was told I would be contacted that day and they would mail me a new chip. It has been 2 days and still no one has contacted me.

I have had other Biostar products in the past and have had no issues. I would think that customer service would be faster. This experience will probably change my opinion about Biostar products and future purchases.

Manufacturer Response:

Sorry, please call 626-581-1055 menu 2 for status check. thanks

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Cheap

Cons: DOA. BSOD throughout windows installation if any USB device was connected. After installing windows by removing USB devices immediately after use, Windows would crash every time a device was plugged in or program was launched. Tried an ASRock motherboard next and had no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsVery stable after 2 years

Pros: Good clean stable board
Inexpensive
Easy installation

Cons: None for me

Other Thoughts: Running Windows 7, 64 bit, 16 GB RAM. I don't overclock so I cannot comment about it's overclocking capabilities. I'm not a gamer so I prefer a stable environment over a slight increase in speed and so far I've had no problems.
