4 out of 5 eggsA solid board with a few flaws

Pros: Full featured board, seems solid and reliable.

Cons: Headphone amplifier only works through front panel audio, which is extremely noise on many cases.

Other Thoughts: Biostar should really make a Micro-ATX version of this board. Since I don't need to add an audio card, the only reason for a board with this many expansion slots is for people who really want to use triple video cards.

5 out of 5 eggsreview update

Pros: this is a update to my review some things I found see other thoughts
..I want to thank new egg fast shipping

Cons: New egg I ordered this board from You and got it shipped from Your Tenn warehouse BUT they need training on how to prepare a package for shipping , putting a product on the bottom of the box with no protection on the botton is NOT a good idea . The board was just laying on the bottom with paper over top leaving the bottom unprotected , geez even I know better then this

Other Thoughts: Ok a few things I have learned about this board , for one if You have a PCIE Gen 3 vid card in , then the bios might not set it at the proper speed . I downloaded GPUZ , installed that and I was shocked to find My MSI 660 was running at PCIE 1.0 . Their is a bios setting on the board to set Your speed so do not rely on auto to set the speed . I even installed the latest bios , same Issue . I am hoping Biostar is listening here as a bios update needs to be adressed here . Good thing though You can manualy set PCIE speeds to fit Your vid card specs . This is probaly why one reviewers AMD card had issues .

4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, no problems

Pros: everything tested works fine, good mb manual

my first board with lcd post code display and power & reset buttons - can't say they get much use but nice feature

Cons: little skimpy on the usb 3.0 and sata 3.0 connections

I prefer the sata connectors perpendicular to the board, in my case the drive cage doesn't leave much room to plug in the cables

Other Thoughts: My 2nd Biostar, had the tforce 939 back in the day that was a great little oc'ing board

Would have given it 5 stars, but as I can't really test it's oc ability with a i3 2120 don't think it would be fair

Manuals much more complete then the 939 ones, but only the mb manual is printed, the bios is on the cd

5 out of 5 eggsFast Stable board

Pros: A easy board to set up , she booted right up 1st try. I just loaded optimised defaults and set time and off I went . This board is a good looking board that does not have any bells and whistles , no extras like 2 lan controlers , or extra 3rd party USB 3.0 controlers clogging up the board, Just what is supplied by the Z77 Chipset . Their is plenty of room for large CPU coolers and a good layout for SLI Vid cards . Good price point . I ma impressed as to the proformance of this board , I have owned other z77 boards costing way more then this boards, namly a Z77 Sabertooth, Z77 extreme 4 , Z77 OC Edition ( The OC edition died in 3 months) and this board is faster then them all . I did research on the board ( google this board) and what I have found is that this board is faster then all the boards I have seen or owned .

Cons: only con is the usb 3.0 header is smack dab in the middle , should have been on the right edge of the board

Other Thoughts: While I can not say as to the long term operation of the board , so far I am impressed , This board is basicly a high end board with out all the fluff extras that you will probaly disable any way , like extra raid controlers , ect . And this is what I like here , just a good meat and potatoes board, that is rock stable , fast , and a good layout for large vid cards .
If I have issues later I will post back but I am happy so far

SLI and CrossFire support

4 out of 5 eggsGreat, but not amazing

Pros: 3 PCI x16 slots, USB 3.0, SATA 3, etc etc. It's quite large, which is actually nice in this case (no pun intended).

Cons: To agree with an earlier review, placement. Fan headers are in the worst places possible. Call me blind but I'm pretty sure I only found two. If I wanted to add more than two fans (which I have) I would need splitters or adapters for my PSU, which just seems unnecessary. You would think that for a high performance mobo they would have a few more, but this is only annoying enough to deduct one egg.

The one I needed the most was for a case fan at the front of the case (for cooling the HDDs), but the wire wasn't long enough to reach either header so I was forced to move it to the rear.

Another thing I didn't like but didn't mind too much was that the HD Audio and USB headers were spaced far apart. I had bunched my front port audio and USB cables with a cable organizing kit and had to cut that apart just for this arrangement. No biggie.

Other Thoughts: Overall this board is a great product. It's not so cluttered like other boards, partially because of its size. I'd definitely buy another.

4 out of 5 eggsI love Biostar

Pros: An amazing build from Biostar. The company has never let me down. Board is of quality material and I expect it to last for a long time. My AM3 boards are still running flawless

Cons: Placement. Somewhat of an issue with this board. Fan header's. USB header. Needs for Sata3 connector's. Z77 chipset allows for 4 USB 3.0 but BioStar decided to only give you 2.

Other Thoughts: The quality is much different between there Intel and AMD builds. Sad and weird at the same time.
