1 out of 5 eggsDied after three months

Pros: Cheap, easy to install. Surprisingly good performance.

Cons: I used this motherboard, CPU combo to build a basic web surfing, email reading system to use when my girlfriend was hogging up the gaming PC. It worked well for the few times I actually got to use it. So I sat down to use it last night and I knew something was wrong immediately because the system seemed to be caught in a loop of powering up for about 1 to 2 seconds then powering down, waiting about 5-10 seconds and then powering up for 1 to 2 seconds again, repeat.... I could tell it was doing this because the power LED and fans would run for the 1-2 seconds. I attempted to troubleshoot the system by replacing the Power Supply and all other components from another working system. Even with everything replaced, the motherboard still exhibited the same behavior. Now the dilemma, "Is it even work the trouble and shipping costs to RMA?"

Other Thoughts: I'm disappointed in my first Biostar purchase. For my gaming rigs, I always go with Asus or Gigabyte, neither have let me down. I guess I should of stuck with them for the cheapo build as well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat and cheap!

Pros: Price. Can't beat there. There was another similar board exactly same specs but different maker but on sale for 15 bucks less. Too bad they were sold out by the time I got one.

Using this as a Windows Media Center Server / Storage server. My current PC generates a ton of heat and power and this thing uses like nothing. I stream all my stuff though my XBox 360 as a windows media extender. Some people ask why not just get a NAS or something? Well unless its an AVI the built in video player won't play it. I could buy other things as well but I have a RAID in this machine (Dell SAS 5 Card) and I like to keep an eye on it, check hard drive SMART status, Clone to a backup when ever I feel like it ect and this little guys does it flawlessly. I have it in a Temp case but plan on getting a nice ITX case, silent PSU, and a few other things. Had no issue starting it up and installing windows. No issues with my RAID card what so ever. I just remote into it when I need to access it and what not and it does lag a little but not too bad but then there are quite a few things in the back ground running though and it still runs pretty good. Love the Gigabit lan to stream everything and if i really need to use the HDMI to connect to my TV but its currently in another room. Want to make this thing as silent, cool, and power efficient as possible since I will keep it on 24/7.

Cons: None as of now

5 out of 5 eggsTiny Wonder

Pros: Efficient, Powerful

Cons: None... Best I can come up with is that it needs more SATA ports.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these. One for a dedicated XBMC box and the other to replace my storage server.
OpenELEC a dedicated XBMC distro runs perfect on this. 2g of ram and this plays EVERYTHING with no issues.
For my server I've got Windows Server 2013-R2 with 4 storage drives. I also have a Software Firewall and my PBX running under Hyper-V.
It just keeps amazing me. Plus I've saved a good deal of money on electricity since each machine only pulls around 20 watts on average.

5 out of 5 eggsReally Great Board, One Small Problem

Pros: I've been very pleasantly surprised with the performance of this board. The fact that the CPU is a celeron initially scared me, but the system is very quick and responsive. I'm using it as a home server running about 10 different services and it never skips a beat. This board would also be great as a basic internet and word processing PC.

The system is quite efficient as well. I have it set up with two hard drives and a PicoPSU power supply. It has averaged 22 watts over the last week of 24x7 running. Prior to this machineI ran an old Dell junker that sucked up well over 100 watts doing the same tasks. This thing will pay for itself over a few years.

Cons: The only problem I've come across is that the Northbridge heat sink seems way too small and therefore way too hot. The outside of the heat sink measures 65 - 70 degrees C at idle. I can't find a corresponding system temperature, but it sure seems too high.

Other Thoughts: I pulled off the stock Northbridge heat sink and put on a beefier sink from a scrap motherboard. Had to attach it with zip ties, but the temperatures are a lot better now, with the surface of the heat sink running below 40 degrees C now.

Overall I highly recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great BUT Update BIOS

Pros: 1. Compatible with ATX and MicroATX cases and Pwr supplies
2. 4 SATA ports
3. Decent, but not great, documentation
4. Works with Freenas or Windows 7
5. Low cost - MB and cpu

Cons: 1. MUST update BIOS to get the thing to boot properly, original BIOS seems to be defective, but follow the online instructions and you will be fine

Other Thoughts: I had an old HP desktop that I wanted to use as a server but it had an old power hungry AMD processor. I bought this card and a stick of memory for about $100 and upgraded it. It would then boot as Freenas using a USB stick and as Windows using the old hard drive without any problems, but you MUST update the BIOS. I could not get it to do anything with the original BIOS, but the BIOS update was easy using the online instructions and a USB thumb drive.

5 out of 5 eggsPerforment pour le prix payé

Pros: Le prix.
Processeur Dual Core assez puissant pour la majorité des utilisations courantes.
Ventilateur du CPU silencieux même à 100% d'utilisation.
Fente PCI-E.
Interface graphique intégrée capable de 1080P avec de la marge.
4 port SATA dont un SATA III.
Ventilateur 40mm facile à trouver en cas de problème.

Cons: Pas de port USB3.0 mais une carte PCI-E USB peut être ajoutée.
Pas de connecteur DVI mais on peut ajouter un adaptateur HDMI -> DVI.
Les connecteurs PS2 pourraient être remplacés par des ports USB supplémentaire parce qu'il n'y a plus beaucoup de souris et de claviers PS2.

Other Thoughts: Cette carte mère à CPU intégré est une très bonne affaire pour un système de base et son processeur double cœur est assez poussant pour la majorité des applications conventionnelles (Internet, Film, applications de bureautique et même pour les jeux légers avec un carte graphique supplémentaire. Jumeler avec un SSD cette carte est une base intéressant pour une deuxième système ou pour un système limité en budget. On ne peut pas rien trouver de mieux à moins du double du prix demandé pour cette carte mère avec CPU intégré. Un bon achat à recommander.

5 out of 5 eggsNice board - no problems so far

Pros: Quiet, 4 SATA ports, works with Ubuntu Linux, low TDP, low cost.

Cons: No USB 3.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded my desktop rig with this motherboard and 16 GB of Crucial RAM. The old motherboard was a 2008 Intel D201GLY2. After replacing the old motherboard and RAM with the new, everything just worked. No complaints so far. I will update this review if I encounter any problems.

Previously, I have purchased both fanless and fanned motherboards, although it has been years since my last motherboard purchase. This is the first fanned motherboard where the CPU fan spins slowly and quietly, which is very nice. My quiet-ish power supply is significantly louder than the CPU fan.

3 out of 5 eggsgood when it was working

Pros: small, relatively quiet. Has a lot of SATA ports. faster than celeron 847

Cons: No USB 3.

dead within 2 month.

Other Thoughts: it was great while it worked. The small fan on the work was quieter than I thought.
It suddenly start freezing during boot, at the "smart" screen with hot keys. No chance to enter BIOS setup, no chance to access the onboard BIO-Flasher
