4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Alot of bang for your buck here, I paid $55 for this mobo. It's small with the mini ATX form factor but built for the A-series CPU's this things loaded with cool features. Its not top quality for example it has standard coated caps instead of cold or titanium etc, but if your looking for a budget build, cant go wrong here.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board to make a powerful cheap gaming rig

Pros: This motherboard was cheap when i bought it back in march of 2014 and i was skeptical at first because it is a micro atx mobo. But built the computer on the lowest budget i had and let me tell you i have had no problems with it posting or overclocking in general my A8-5600k APU is overclocked to 4.3 GHZ Im able to run most games at high or ultra settings thanks to the GTX 550 Ti i picked up from a flea market for $20 brand new, The motherboard supports 8 SATA connections i have no use for all 8 but I can say that its a deal for so many ports on a micro ATX board. I would say this is one of the best mobo's i have invested into in a while

Cons: The only complaint i have is the prongs to wire your case are not labeled on the mobo and are only labeled in the instructions which make things really confusing.

Other Thoughts: my rig and cost:
BIOSTAR Hi-Fi A85S3
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB
AMD A8-5600K
EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750B BRONZE 120-PB-0750-RX 750W ATX12V
Kingston SSDNow V300 120Gb
Seagate Barracuda 1Tb 7200rpm Hdd
used an old Gateway Gt5404 case


Total cost $453.52

5 out of 5 eggsNice board

Pros: Nice HTPC board. Using the HDMI port and an APU makes a really cheap but fast Ubuntu Kodi client

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I could have used lighter frontends for my TVs but I like having decent PCs attached to every TV in the house.

1 out of 5 eggsbuyer be warned

Pros: cheap fm2 slot. when it post's it work's.

Cons: Very bad cmos issues fails to post quite often usb 3.0 ports cant seem to support most USB 2.0 devices. bio-star support very bad on all of these issues and there still has not been a bios update to attempt to fix any of these issues since 04/2013. seems to be a actual hardware issue. 3 boards all the same problem.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT buy unless you enjoy having a headache and fighting to get your cmos to post. issues took 2 months or so to arise and only able to be solved by switching boards to msi a75 problem gone. also from what i have found this problem only progresses over time until final death usually around 1 year.

5 out of 5 eggsBIOSTAR Hi-Fi A85S3 FM2 AMD A85X

Pros: Nice MATX board. Low cost, easy to Install, very reliable, and a $100 sound card built right on the board!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The BIOSTAR Puro Hi-Fi feature on this board makes it worth twice what I paid for it. My needs are simple (2.1 Klipsch speaker system) I just play music with it. The sound is heavenly and noticeably better than any MB sound system.
My System: Hi-Fi A85S3, AMD TA6-5400K 3.6G 4M FM2, 4Gx2 GSKILL F3-1600C9D-8GAB, Intel 530 120GB SSD, SeaSonic SSR-360GP, all in an old ANTEC 16XX ATX mid-tower. Ubuntu. Sweet.

2 out of 5 eggsUSB ports on back stopped working

Pros: Everything seemed to work for about a month.

Cons: The computer was turned off for the night and then the next day all but 1 of the USB ports on the back (2 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 2.0) are no longer working.

Other Thoughts: Everything else works fine, but its pretty hard to do anything with only 3 functioning USB ports without buying a USB hub.

It seems like other users have also had issues with the USB ports on this motherboard. I expected better quality based on the majority of the reviews left on this motherboard.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsnice board/low quality

Pros: easy setup
great price
has what I wanted
easy overclock

Cons: lower quality
slow death after a year

Other Thoughts: this board had a lot of what I was looking for. usb 3.0 Hudson d4 hi-fi, Easy setup, good overclocking. Was really happy for the first year. Then slowly things started going. First the onboard sound, which took me about 10hrs to figure out! then errors and finally just stopped firing. A motherboard should last longer than 14mos.
