5 out of 5 eggssweet build

Pros: my GF liked the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811144110 case and i had a few parts so i built her a box in this. the first recycled mobo was not good so i upgraded it to this. worked well in tight case with little clearances i was happy was even able to get by with stock fan at 41C on both the cpu and gpu in RIft with no additional cooling

Cons: funky colors for a 3 windowed box but no issues

Other Thoughts: i replaced an MCI board that was about the same price range and found this bios to be easier to understand the MCI seemed flakey in 3 different builds with different cpus and ram. I am liking them less. not often do i use biostar but this one was no problems found

5 out of 5 eggsNice board

Pros: I bought three of these boards to run A4 and A6 APUs and I was happy with the clean look of the boards, and that the few capacitors used are all solid caps. The board doesn't have very many surface mounted components at all, giving it the clean look.

I was also very happy with the performance of these systems when booting from SSD drives. Booting Windows 7 Pro is very quick, and programs snap open.

The on-board video is attached to some beautiful Acer B243PWLAJbmdrz 24" IPS monitors running at 1920x1200. These computers wont be used to run games so I can't say how well it can play games, but I'm sure they would be fast enough for some games at least.

Cons: The UEFI style bios is not as well laid out as other brands I've seen, but its easy enough to use.

Not really anything else to complain about.

Other Thoughts: My favorite feature is the bios' ability to calibrate my 4-wire cpu fan, giving me the correct numbers to use when setting the fan's minimum and maximum values. Setting the fan to spin at lower speeds when the cpu temps are low sure helps keep the noise down.

3 out of 5 eggs6.1 not 6.2

Pros: Great mobo for overclocking for the low low low low price

clocks better then 100-120$ mobo's

Cons: I got Rev 6.1 when the product is listed as 6.2

6.2 Overclocks even better than 6.1, im running at 4.4ghz stable
where as 6.2 with a decent cooler you can get 5.0+ highest 5.6 on overclockers.net

3 out of 5 eggsBad motherboard RAM slot

Pros: Fantastic price for all of the amenities of this board. Bios looks cool, but not as functional or straight-forward as some of the older ones I've worked with (either that or I am behind on what all these options are for--it is mentionable that I do not OC). Perfect for my wife's needs (WoW, Office, 1080P video streaming).

Cons: Bad A1 memory slot on the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I bought this motherboard to pair up with an a10-5800K and match it with 8GB of DDR3 2133 (Gskill Ares). After seeing on first post that it was only registering 4096MB of RAM, but both dimms were showing up as full in CPU-Z, but running in Single mode after installing Win7 64-bit... Windows Profile said I had 8GB installed memory but only 3.17 usable.

I bought another set of DDR3 on a different site with prime shipping and popped them in--same problem. Only B1 slot will run alone. A single memory stick in A1 won't give me post.

I give it three stars because it is fantastic outside of this single defect (unfortunately a major one)...

Hoping the RMA goes smooth.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your purchase of the item, please note if the RMA replacement should have same problem, you may want to test cpu or try different CPU to see if you may have a faulty CPU.
