4 out of 5 eggsI would buy another...

Pros: 990FX AM3+
140W CPU Support
Dual 16x PCI-E
CFX/SLi support
USB 3.0 header
GBit Lan
Up to 32GB RAM
Power/Reset/Debug on board

Like the Red, White, & Black color scheme. Trumps any 970 board for sure, and was at one point the cheapest 990FX mobo available.

Cons: Only supports up to FX 8350
16x slots too close together
only three fan headers
-one "smart" CPU fan header
-one adjustable (only with SpeedFan) header
-one non-adjustable header

The fan headers are annoying and poorly placed. And there should be five instead of three. And they should ALL be adjustable, and/or have some kind of smart control on them.

Other Thoughts: Mine ate it's own BIOS chip once, but I suspect the chip was faulty. BIOSTAR sent a replacement chip (it failed within warranty), and the board booted straight away and hasn't had a problem since.

Not the best laid out board, and some professional reviews show it to be marginally slower than other 990FX boards in benchmarks. Bottom line, unless you are benchmarking hard or extreme overclocking, this board should do everything you need it to.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Board

Pros: I have had no issues with this and have happily OC'ed my FX8350 and my RAM to 1866.

Cons: Like others have mentioned, I have had a weird static interference noise. Its especially noticeable when using headphones.

Other Thoughts: For the price I paid, I feel like I've got a decent value. I will be upgrading to a new board soon, and its very doubtful it'll be one from Biostar.

5 out of 5 eggsFX-8350 4.6Ghz 01/22/2014

Pros: Update - currently running my 8350 @ 4.6Ghz stable, tested with Furmark and IBT ran concurrent. 32G of 1866DDR3 @ 1600. 1866 is only supported with two of the four DDR slots used. G.Skills Model F3-1866C10D-16GAB. Corsair H80, refurb which appeared new. KINGWIN LZP-750 750W. Win 8, not wanting 8.1 due to some issue's. I also run ArmA 3 from a 16G Radeon RAMDisk, which runs real smooth. Plextor M5P Xtreme Series PX-256M5Pro, Seagate Momentus XT 750 and bulk archive on a Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS.

Cons: Somethings are not documented, but have to be learned/discovered.
No 64G DDR support.

Other Thoughts: Wish Biostar would update the BIOS to support 64G of DDR. At 4.6Ghz, do I need a FX-9xxx..? No, I'm very well pleased with my products from this one vendor.
Some may say go with a RAID, but the IOPS of a RAMDisk is PHENOM ! My system has just grown and evolved over time. It was first "lofted" with ArmA 3 in mind which wasn't even released in Alpha yet. I do transcoding also, but I can run two virtual machines to host some "services". But it's also a learning platform.

1 out of 5 eggsI WILL NEVER BUY BIOSTAR AGAIN!!!

Pros: Has good features.

Cons: This board lasted almost 6 mouths. The only overclocking I did on this board was for the RAM do to it being underclocked and not see the correct speed. Biostar tech support sucks. Emails that "were" replied are short and vague at best. I will not go into detail of the problem as it will take too long to type it.

Other Thoughts: I WILL NEVER BUY A BIOSTAR PRODUCT EVER AGAIN, PERIOD !!!!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Motherboard

Pros: Easy setup
Easy Core Unlock
Reliable

Cons: None as of yet

Other Thoughts: Has worked great for over a year, with a AMD Athalon X3 it unlocked the 4th core right off the bat with I think just 1 keypress.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid board, clunky BIOS

Pros: Worked. Sorry to hear DOA problems from others, but mine booted the OS and all just fine. My whole thing was to run a big CPU overclock, and yes, I got my FX-6300 to 4.4 Ghz @ ~1.5V (thank you beast cooler). North bridge stably clocked to 2.4 Ghz without a hitch, even though it doesn't matter too much.

Cons: BIOS program is a bit iffy. Lack of precise control for voltage and clock speeds... I could not get a successful boot unless my overvolt was a multiple of 0.05 (stock 1.2625, volt to 1.3125, 1.3625, 1.4125, etc). Also, you have to find a precise balance between changing the actual voltage number (e.g. 1.3625V) and changing the voltage boost (e.g. +0.150V). They are additive; I'm not sure what the root of the problems are with interchanging them, but whatever. I suppose I got it figured out in the end. My point is, BIOS configuring and overclocking will lead you with more CMOS-clearing adventures than most BIOS setups will.

Other Thoughts: My attempt at RAM overclock crashed and burned. Not sure if it was the board's fault, so I'll leave it in "other thoughts." Whether I was trying to lower the latencies or get it up to 1866, I got no-boots and blue-screens left and right. I gave up eventually, I didn't really need a RAM overclock anyway lol. Overall I'd say I'm satisfied.
