5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Board

Pros: Purchased to replace a failed motherboard of a different brand. Booted up quick, Windows 8 detected all the hardware changes, and had no issues since. Excellent board. Will be shopping Biostar again.

Cons: BIOS feels a little clunky, but no *real* issues.

4 out of 5 eggsBiostar TA970

Pros: You really got a lot of punch for the money on this board. UEFI, USB3, SATA 6, 970 chipset. SATA ports are perpendicular to the board, I always prefer that. Plenty of USB ports on the back, but still has PS2 as well, for those of you with that PS2 KB you just wont give up. On board sound is decent.

Cons: No front side USB3 headers. BIOS is underwhelming.

Other Thoughts: I must admit, I've never been a fan of Biostar. I always thought they were cheap crud. I needed to build my wife a new box, and I had a had a budget, and this board seemed to get good reviews. I wanted certain things (more than 2 RAM slots, SATA 6Gbps, a good chipset, USB3). All of the other brands wanted a lot more for their boards that fit the bill. And at the price range of this board ($60 US at time of purchase), everyone else had 2 RAM slots, 760 chipset, etc) I took a chance on this Biostar, and I am digging it so far. Normally I'm going with MSI, Gigabyte, or ASUS. I'm not ready to drop those and fly the Biostar flag just yet, but at least now the name does not leave a bitter taste in my mouth.

1 out of 5 eggsAfter 7months of ownership, it hasn't been a smooth ride

Pros: price

Cons: - it will randomly reset
- it doesn't consistently boot up. it takes several attempts: flashing cmos, power on and off the system.

Other Thoughts: I paid a higher price than the current. I wouldn't recommend this to my friend. I have a feeling this board will fail further down-the-line. I dread sending it in a for warranty issue.

Manufacturer Response:

Sorry to hear of your troubles, this does nto sound like normal operation of the motherboard. Recommend that you contact Biostar technical support at 626-581-1055 menu 2 or email support@biostar-usa.com for assistance.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well, cheap

Pros: Cheap and works. Supports XMP memory, has plenty of USB ports. Also sound card is properly coupled to output and it doesn't make terrible thumps on power down.

Cons: Only 2 USB 3.0 ports. Poor manuals. Obscure BIOS settings for advanced options.

Other Thoughts: It works well with a FX6300 CPU and booted right up - unlike another "G" brand board I had gotten a few weeks ago. Wish it had internal USB3.0 and 8 pin CPU power.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Board for the Price

Pros: Solid capacitors, dual video card slots. I've used Biostar in the past never had any issues. Had an older AM3 board in my old build that my friend is still using and running strong (roughly 3 years old now)

Cons: Only two USB 3.0 ports (not really a big deal but two more would have been nice). The Bios are a little clunky in my opinion. Lacks more advanced overclocking abilities. Knocking an egg for the bios.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks new.

Pros: I got this mobo to make a gaming pc. I did some research and this board had everything I wanted. I took a chance on an open box item though I had never purchased open box before and the mobo looked new. I honestly wasn't expecting it.

Cons: non at the moment.

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.
