5 out of 5 eggsGood Stable Board

Pros: After 2 months, no problems. Paired with i3 3.2ghz, 8GB W7 Pro. Smooth operation, quick start-up. Good price for an Intel board. Biostar is never the fastest board, but always stable.

Cons: Need more USB's on back, Biostar has always been cheap with USB ports.

Other Thoughts: Would have liked USB 3.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: Installation went great
I like the Tovercloacker software that allows you to change certain BIOS settings without having to actually go into the BIOS

Cons: My card reader periodically becomes nonfunctional, and I have to unplug it and plug it back in, but it is probably an issue with the card reader.

5 out of 5 eggsMissing Support *UPDATE***

Pros: Has excellent features for an unbeatable price. Best bang for the buck that I could find

*Support came through***

Cons: During the install I got a little overwhelmed and ranted on Biostar's support. They took a few days and I had to call in, but they ended up answering my questions. A nice fellow named Jackson talked me off the ledge.

Other Thoughts: I had several BSOD's on this build and the dumps were all different. It ended up being the power supply. My customer is being really cool about it so I took a chill and decided to right my wrong with this review. ...Maybe I should switch to decaff

1 out of 5 eggsMissing Support

Pros: Has excellent features for an unbeatable price. Best bang for the buck that I could find

Cons: Biostar Technical Support - Maybe they all took a fishing trip together. Please enjoy your vacation, but come back and help me. Oh, the manual is just a reprint of the notes included in the AMI Bios.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this board for a customer’s simple workstation plus VM guest. I chose a newer revision of i3-560 processor with Virtual and Hyperthreading tech – (BX80616I3560). I made the mistake when I checked Biostar’s supported CPU page which has the i5 3.33 GHz listed just above the i3. I made the mistake and I accept that, but I think it is fair to expect an answer from tech support. If the question requires research, just let me know so I can tell the customer.
If anyone can provide insight on this pairing that would be awesome. Troybme at gmail. Hopefully Biostar will see this and respond. I’m getting BSOD’s with a wide variety of debug results. Tried multiple clean installs and HDD, RAM, and CPU prime tests don’t point to anything else. I’m going to switch out the PSU and hopefully it will be the culprit.

Manufacturer Response:

Sorry to hear of the trouble, Biostar does monitor user feedback and will use repsond to assist your needs. Recommend that you contact our support staff at support@biostar-usa.com or call 626-581-1055 menu select 2 during business hours of 9 am to 5:30 pm pacific time M-F.

4 out of 5 eggsLovely Product

Pros: I bought this in a combo deal with an i3. After downloading the newest bios onto a jump drive the setup and install of my new system was extremely easy. perfect for my needs.

Cons: The pci xpress slot is slightly loose. if i didnt have the card attached tightly it would lose contact with the top side and even wiggle when the tower is bumped.

Other Thoughts: overall a great buy. Biostar has let me down in the past, but not at all with this model.

Pros: HDMI on board DVI on board lots of room to expand you don't need a lot of money to get a nice Mobo and a nice processor this board runs nice with the i3 I just use this combo in a build and the customer was happy when he heard that he could one day upgrade to the i7 another + was that I built this PC with 4GB RAM he was also happy to hear that he could later upgrade up to 16GB .....very happy with this purchase as was the person I built it for

Cons: none that I've found as of yet

5 out of 5 eggsWorks just fine

Pros: +Worked right out of the box

+intel h55

+drivers installed just fine

Cons: have to OC ram to 1600 nothing huge

Other Thoughts: First computer I built had to use Intel h55 with the i3's graphics for a while which worked great. it can run source games on mostly high or medium settings at a decent frame rate.

3 out of 5 eggsNo Intel MEI Support - HDMI cannot be connected through a receiver

Pros: I bought this for the expansion possibilities (memory and HDD), the stability and the on board graphics, which made this MOBO light on the wallet.

Cons: This board does not support Intel MEI so it has to be directly attached the to TV and cannot be connected to a receiver - this is a major flaw that knocks this board from 5 to 3 eggs. From AVS Forum:
"The official word from Biostar was that *NONE* of their products supported PAVP, which means that any Biostar board will need to be attached to a single device for HDMI output."

5 out of 5 eggsSimple and Great!!!

Pros: This motherboard is great, HDMI, VGA, DVI. was able to connect to monitors, great feature! up to 16 gigs, PCIe , Easy to over-clock .
What also do you need?

Cons: make sure that the motherboard is sitting properly! this is with any, but most people think is the motherboard when it's something else.

Other Thoughts: Make sure that you follow the basic principles when connecting any motherboard otherwise it may give you problems.
