1 out of 5 eggsArrg--add another DOA to the list

Pros: Uh---it's flat?

Cons: Other than the annoying DOA-ness of it, none, although it did flash to life just long enough to nudge the CPU fan...

Other Thoughts: Be careful--sometimes you get what you pay for...

5 out of 5 eggsNICE BOARD

Pros: Worked right out of the box. Came as a package with AMD A6-5400K and G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB 1600 for $135.00. Went into my Inwin HTPC with 300 watt Micro ATX supply. Fabulous HD integrated graphics and sound the Dual core is more than enough power.Runs very cool and low power consumption. Been using Biostar for years I have a P4 powered 8 years old and its still running all original how do you complain..Hope Biostar stays around they make one of the very best AMD M/B..

Cons: Doesn"t seem to support Crossfire like my TA75MH2 does.. Any comments

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than I thought it would be

Pros: Have a AMD 5800k overclocked to 4.6ghz with no issues. Was able to overclock ram fairly easily as well.

Cons: My tv has issues getting the input on restarts, but no problem with regular shut down/boots. Not sure if that's the mobos fault though.

1 out of 5 eggsBe Cautious

Pros: No chance to tell. DOA!

Cons: Purchased this board in August 2013 because it was on sale. Went to install it in replacement build yesterday. Fan started, sudden electrical smell, and all went dead. Checked power supply, OK. Reinstalled old board, OK! Tested this board with new power supply--Dead! From all I have read support is very poor. May have to eat this.

Other Thoughts: Well over 100 builds with only one other DOA. Usually build with Asus or Gigabyte. Took a chance, got bit. If I get replacement with reasonable support I will update this; but looking through the comments I am not optimistic!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Bundled this board with a8-6600K, 8gb of DDR3 1866 ram and windows 7 64 bit. Systems runs great. Love the extra SATA slots and usb 3. Great board.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Originally thought I had a dead board. Come to find out my power supply was at fault. I replaced it and everyhing was a-ok.

3 out of 5 eggsCheap but has some problems

Pros: 1. Cheap

2. Stable

3. got 8G memory as gift

Cons: 1. USB 3.0 slot sometimes doesn't compatible with USB 2.0 device such as mouse, keyboard.

2. Memory standard support max to 1866. Too low for overclocking.

Other Thoughts: My system is WIN7 and I have tried to install motherboard's driver for so many times.

Every time when I finished install everything is OK. But after several days, USB 3.0 slot doesn't work and device plug in it shows yellow exclamation mark. I have to install motherboard's driver again to recover from this issue. That's VERY VERY annoying.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: decent board, but for the same price, buy the full size atx board. 2 more dimms and 1 more pci express slot.

Cons: 2 usb ports DOA. Didnt open the package for a month or so from purchase, and because it was more than 30 days before discovering the defective merchandise, newegg wont back it and wont replace it. instead, I just get a number to biostar and a "good luck". Thanks.

Other Thoughts: Newegg should back up their product, 30 days or not. Anyone in retail knows in the end, you supply a defective product, you replace it. I love newegg, but thanks a lot for nothing on this DOA board.
