Biostar
Biostar

Dual GbE LAN

The primary advantage is the doubling of bandwidth which bumps the network bandwidth of 1G up to 2G, and with two high-speed Gigabit networks plus zero packet delay, provides super high data transmission efficiency. Another major advantage is "Load Balancing," allowing users to attach both network adapters to a single network. It will therefore support the aggregation "teaming" function by merging the two connections to support multiple aggregation modes. In addition, two Gigabit Ethernet lightning protection circuits reduce the probability of damage from power surges. So if one connection is disabled, the other connection will automatically kick in.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good power delivery.
Good RAM compatibility.
Ran My G.Skill Samsungs up 2800-ish 2v nicely.

Cons: For the price,none.
Won't do 111 bclck.

Other Thoughts: Hands down the best board at its price point.
I exchanged an AsRock z87 Extreme4 for it and I'm glad I did.
It is clearly a notch better.
