4 out of 5 eggsNot to bad for the price

Pros: Pretty much worked out of the box. Old mobo was busted from a friend being fidgety and he accidentally kicked my box and bent the old mobo. Was concerned cpu was busted as well. Put this new mobo in and everything booted up immediately without needing to even reinstall windows 7. Pleased with mobo overall and like that the nb mosfets actually have a heatsink on them.

Cons: Heard not very good overclocker. Have not tried myself because of this, but gonna try just to test the waters with this mobo. Old mobo would overclock pretty easily, so hoping this one will at least a little. Otherwise not to bad of a board. Not a lot of overclocking options though.

Other Thoughts: Decent bang for buck. Will get you up and running quickly without a hitch. And its a full sized atx mobo and not a mini atx. Also only takes up to 16 gigs of ram. Not to bad but wish was 32 for the future.

Manufacturer Response:

This model is not designed for overclocking. If overclocking is something you are looking for, we may recommend Hi-Fi Z97WE, that has more overclocking features.

5 out of 5 eggsI really like this board.

Pros: Works well. Fast and easy install. Great board for the price.

Cons: Will not works with Windows Vista.

Other Thoughts: Some might find that not working with Vista is not a con, but when you did not plan to buy a new copy of windows it is a con. Otherwise a great motherboard for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsBigger than expected!

Pros: Cheap board with all the really necessary ports and slots. 4-pin CPU power is nice, in previous builds i'd have to specifically find a PSU with an 8-pin CPU power. Firm design, neat construction. Layout is sensible and spread fairly. Easy to install.

Cons: It's a micro-ATX so only 2 RAM slots. Not a big deal because I don't need much RAM, but for expandability this is restrictive.

3 out of 5 eggsNo overclock :(

Pros: Worked out of the box,
Lots of expansion options,
Cheap,

Cons: Confusing BIOS
Overclocking features DON"T WORK
BIOS update's do not solve the problem

Other Thoughts: I should have researched more, this board was everything else I wanted for my build, (Black, cheap, ATX, from a name I know). I checked out some screen shots of the overclocking features... but they don't work. When I change the multiplier save and exit, on reboot the multiplier is shown as changed but the clock speed is the same. Voltage changes do not save at all... I tried using easier BIOS as suggested by Biostar tech and it is more of the same. I am pretty unhappy, this may be my last Biostar board. [Looking for another board with usable over clocking features right now :( ]

4 out of 5 eggsGood board, a little finicky

Pros: 6 Pcie slots
Easy BIOS setup
Works great with USB3 Risers
Inexpensive

Cons: Seems to be pretty picky when it comes to pcie presence detection. Did not like my cut ribbon risers.
Had to RMA a board that let out the magic smoke on the FUSB1 MOV (nothing was even connected)

Other Thoughts: Needs to come with a push button mounted on board for a power switch.
