1 out of 5 eggsreally disappointing product

Pros: Great performance while it lasted

Cons: After two months, I started to notice problems, and the board died completely after 5 months. I'd rather have had a doa board than one that dies after a few months

1 out of 5 eggsShort lifespan

Pros: Had a fast RAID boot
Was stable while it worked

Cons: After a month it started to randomly go haywire while gaming, watching youtube channels, or doing anything that would put it under load. It freezes, go blasdawdhawdbsd, then silent black screen. After awhile, it simply stop responding on the main biostar boot-up screen. Can't get into bios, boot menu, nothing..

Other Thoughts: Disappointing.

I'm fine with DOA, but not something fails after working for only a month.

5 out of 5 eggsSeems to be a solid motherboard

Pros: 1) Arrived fully functional

2) Be aware that with Windows 7, you do have to install the LAN drivers that come on the motherboard driver disk before you have access to the LAN.

3) The boards BIOS is very nice.

Cons: My only complaint is that there is no USB 3 header. It only has two USB 2 headers.

I'm going to purchase a USB 3 PCI card with headers so I can utilize the two USB 3 ports in the front of the case.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to leave the system powers for 48 hours to ensure that there are no board issues.

5 out of 5 eggsBudget board for you

Pros: Great board that has a reasonable price tag.
It has all the features you can find on those famous brand
but this one doesn't really hurt your pocket.

Cons: NB heat sink is too small I guess

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: cheap price.
has plenty connections.
looks well made.

Cons: Not a full ATX so one side is past the MicroATX standoffs.
only 4 pin cpu power.

Other Thoughts: My first one I thought was DOA, but it was the power supply.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty decent.

Pros: UEFI Bios (much easier than other hardware I've used UEFI installations on). Price ($59). 64GB RAM capable. AM3+ Support. Zero on-board graphics. USB always-on power. Plenty of USB ports and headers. Two system fan headers.

Cons: S3/S4... Getting this thing to sleep/hibernate under any OS seems to be a lost cause. Windows hibernates but doesn't sleep, Linux sleeps but doesn't hibernate. This conjunction means absolutely no hybrid-sleep capabilities.

Other Thoughts: I read alot of reviews about this particular board being DOA, but I didn't have that problem. I'm really thinking the people writing those reviews are incapable of actually installing a motherboard or understanding it's technical specifications. Another thought, I wish it had more actual USB 3.0 ports, but then again it does come with a 3.0 header.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Turns on Fans.

Cons: DOA. No beeps. No video. No Lights. Wouldn't power off unless I killed the power supply.

Other Thoughts: All parts that were attached to this board were put on a different board and they worked fine. How can this company push out so many DOA boards. I don't think they even test this model. Newegg was good at giving an RMA so I can send it back.

3 out of 5 eggsSecond review after 4months

Pros: *Overall a decent board
*Works
*cheap if you only need a replacement.

Cons: *May be my case only, but audio is simply faulty. I will not bother with RMA due to it bein 4 months past order date.
*Oddly shaped
*Too pricey for what I personally got.

Other Thoughts: This board is oddly shaped in the manner that the screwholes are a little... wonky. I would give this board a 4/5 if it was not for the fault first ram slot, the oddly positioned screw hole, and especially the audio being faulty after 4 months. I will most likely not buy BIOSTAR again because of this experience, it is even worse because of their lack of support for me.

3 out of 5 eggsLong Boot Time

Pros: 1. Easy to setup/install
2. Drivers are simple and straight forward

Cons: 1. Underclocked my RAM from 1866 to 1600 for some unknown reason
2. For some weird reason my computer gets stuck on the initial motherboard screen for 3+ minutes
