5 out of 5 eggsBad to the bone Board

Pros: This has been one of my best MOBO in a long time. This thing runs the new UEFI Bios, which is so awesome, as far as interaction is concerned. I haven't have anything but good come of out this blazing fast MOBO.

Cons: It wasn't free?..

Other Thoughts: I've been running an Intel Sandy Bridge 10 mb L3, and now upgrading to a 15 MB L3. I will use this board till it dies, because it's been the most reliable board I have ever purchased.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board, highly recommended

Pros: *Really amazing features for the price. I mean hands down, the board just performs beautifully.
*LED Lights around board (they're red). Didn't know the board came with them. Pretty nice to have.
*CPU temp display on the board itself
*Easy reset buttons directly on the motherboard. This is the 1st motherboard I've seen have this. It's really a very helpful feature and can save you if you screw up something in the BIOS.

Cons: *BIOS is clunky, but manageable. Just be prepared to take some time to learn it. If you're really lazy and want easy, then choose another vendor. I knew it was gonna be like this before I bought it.

Other Thoughts: *Originally got some silly CMOS error. Turned out the date on the computer was wrong. It was ahead by a day, so as soon as I changed it around the error was gone.
*Out of box settings for the SATA was IDE. I figured it out after and changed it to AHCI. Was easy and it did not cause any impact to Windows.

5 out of 5 eggsSupport 2nd to none!

Pros: This has got to be one of the best performing mobo's I've ever built. This is the second one I've purchased, running the same i7 processor. There is plenty of USB 3.0 ports, and expansions in the event you want to connect more electronics, or using it for a small business

Cons: The UEFI Bios isn't as friendly as I expected it to be, but that is from my own ignorance, not the problems of the maker.

Other Thoughts: When I bought this mobo, it was my first experience with the UEFI bios. There is a desktop icon on flashing your BIOS, keeping it up to date. I used this utility and my mobo froze up, losing access to my computer. Then, while trouble shooting, I came across a paragraph that states not to flash the BIOS unless you have a problem. I think this would be a good idea to remove that icon.
But, best of all, when I did make the attempt to flash, I lost the entire computer because I lost the BIOS. I sent a support ticket to Biostar about what had happened, that it was my fault. They never question my flash procedures and said they would send another chip out right away. I got it 4 days later in the regular USPS. I installed the new chip and computer is back to normal. My point! This is the best support I have ever gotten. The fastest I have ever received. If you have a problem after buying a Biostar MOBO, do not call newegg. Go to their website and open a support ticket. The process doesn't take but a few minutes and the speed in which they will respond back to you, is second to none!!!! I've done 6 builds, using different MOBO's, but I fan honestly tell you, I will always use a Biostar MOBO if at all possible. Thanks for the support you guys!!!!! You really rock!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsNice motherboard! Great features! better price!

Pros: This is a great buy for this motherboard. $189 is a steal! Im building a new system using a Ivy E cpu, and I am highly considering this motherboard.

NEW BIOS RELEASED! Supports 4820K, 4930K, and 4960X

Not to mention, this motherboard has 6X usb 3.0 ports, and 4X sata 6Gbps ports.

3x PCI-E, 3.0 X16 slots, supports 3 way @ x16/x16/x8

Cons: Uses analog VRM control. And not digital, like most motherboards.

Does not affect performance though.

4 out of 5 eggs1 problen

Pros: Worked great, looks good, better than I expected from Biostar.

Cons: Has only 2 case fan headers, nowhere near enough. I would buy it again if it had 4 or 5.

Other Thoughts: I had to choose between buying a bunch of fan header Y cables, or returning it. I did the latter.

3 out of 5 eggsFrustrated

Pros: Ran well for the most part. RMA was easy.

Cons: Customer service, bent CPU pins

Other Thoughts: RMA'd the first time for SLi issues. It was sent back with a paper saying "OK'. I had the same issues. I RMA'd my two GPUs and got a new SLi bridge. No dice. After many troubleshooting attempts, I RMA'd this mobo a second time for bent CPU pins. After shipping it through USPS, it arrived at Biostar with the corner (where the it attaches to the case) was broken. The box appeared damaged in the pictures they included with the email saying they would not honor my warranty because it arrived damaged. I explained this situation with customer service and they were unsympathetic, as if one of the mounting screws not being there would cause my SLi issues. My problem should have been fixed the first time I RMA'd the board. I cannot recommend the service I received when RMAing. The board ran well otherwise, which is why I give it three stars. I'm frustrated. $230~ may not be much to a company like Biostar, but for me and my family, it took months of saving for me to build this PC the way I wanted it. Sorry for the life story, but I felt it necessary for the reader to understand my point of view.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Motherboard. King of the Price/Performance LGA 2011 Mobo

Pros: Price/Performance Ratio. Very Stable , looks good. It hangs at the same performance as the most expensive ones that double the price of this hidden Gem. Everything working flawlessly 100%.

Cons: None at this price.

Other Thoughts: Installed a 3930K , 16GB of ddr3-2133 ram 4x4GB G. Skill , MSI HD7970 Lightning , 2x Samsung 830 128GB Raid0 OS and 1 WD 1TB HD for storage. PC Power & Cooling MK-2 750w. Running like a champ , zero , nada problems so far. Bought it with a $30USDollar Discount promo code , for $199USDollars it was a very good deal. Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far!

Pros: A lot of great features for a board that is relatively affordable, as far as X79 boards go anyway. Sturdy construction and an easy layout to work with adds to the appeal of this component. Looks good in the case too!

Cons: Lack of fan headers makes buying a fan controller a must.

Other Thoughts: No regrets, a $25 fan controller makes this the perfect board.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far very good

Pros: First board was flaky, easy RMA, second board has done everything I've asked from it. BioStar tech support was very good and expeditious. Having had issues with the other two big MoBo boys tried BioStar, certainly look at them again at upgrade time.

Cons: Not enough SATA 6gb ports
