3 out of 5 eggsA headache.

Pros: Cheap board.
Looks cool.

Cons: Board started to turn off by itself. Now it doesnt even start. As we speak i put an RMA request in. If continues ill be purchasing a better board.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent motherboard!

Pros: Super-easy to configure, and it comes with a nifty "BioRemote" software that lets you easily remote control your Windows PC with Biostar's Android and/or iOS app - gives you mouse and keyboard controls from your phone or tablet in the house or through the internet.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDOA but possibly not defective

Pros: Great features and incredible price!

Cons: From researching this board online and sifting through numorous tech forums I discovered that many of these boards are defective. I was sad when I did my build and couldn't even get an error beep. The board would not do a post test, no video, fans spun for one second and then nothing. However, I may not have been dealing with a defective board because it was misdelivered and sat outside in 100+° weather for no telling how long. I'm hoping to get a working replacement, so I can determine how well this board actually works. You can't really expect a full featured motherboard at this price, but this board seems to have more going for it than others in its price range. I have seen more good reviews for this item than bad reviews.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Job Biostar

Pros: Board works well and is layed out well. Nice color to boot.. no pun intended. I have used this board now with the AMD FX 8350 Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz processor and 32 gigs of ram and I must say its beast for sure. Will go up to 64 gigs.. does your board do that ? For a board thats been around for a while now its far from outdated. As good as any Asus board and dollar for dollar you get more from biostar and the quality of this board might be even better. Certainly Im going to pay attention to the newer boards that biostar makes because this one is a flat out rock solid winner ! Thankyou so much for making a great board.

Cons: None not one

5 out of 5 eggsWorth it!

Pros: Easy to install, POST no problem, runs FX-4350 125w perfectly, came with updated BIOS. STABLE! Recognized all hardware. SMART CPU fan settings. Quiet mode runs my FX 4350 cool and quiet with STOCK fan. avg 11 degrees C browsing the web stuff like that and 21 degrees C gaming with WOW, Diablo 3, SC2, Battlefield 4, Watchdogs, etc.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Got this for $59.99 and FX-4350 for $84.99. MOST Bang for the buck! Great board. Runs perfectly. Need to read the manual and follow for memory installation to make sure you put in the proper slots or it won't POST. Its all in the manual. And make sure you have at least one case fan plugged into motherboard. Couldn't be easier. VERY happy.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget MB

Pros: This MB is low cost. I bought this for my first build with a FX-8320 CPU and CM Hyper 212 EVO aftermarket CPU cooler. The motherboard fits all the necessities for me: video card, 6 SATA cables, 2 USB 2.0 headers, 6 some USB ports with 2 USB 3.0 ports. I mean this thing has a bunch of slots to put stuff in.

Cons: The North Bridge heatsink that comes on this board gets hot. Sometimes up to 70 degrees C at full load, which was not good. If you're trying to overclock CPU or have a powerful GPU, like in a gaming rig, this board isn't for you. This doesn't have integrated graphics so no HDMI or DVI ports to display out, which was fine for me because I was planning on using my graphics card display out either way.

Other Thoughts: I bought a ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 MB 2 weeks after this one. I'm going to use this Biostar MB in my mom's new computer. She plays solitaire. I'll put a FX-6300 in it. So it won't be pushing as much power to the CPU or the smaller GPU (just to run to the display).

3 out of 5 eggsa few problems

Pros: It connects all the parts I need together, has enough room for my use. Plenty of side ports, but i guess every motherboard has that.

Cons: There is this part that says "Biostar" underneath the slot for the CPU gets EXTREMELY hot, getting over 60 Celsius while my other parts stay below 40. Also, the PCI ports are a little close if you want to have a nicely sized fan for a graphics card.
