This review is from: BIOSTAR TZ68A+ LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Solid board, seems to work well. Every feature I needed plus some, and the price can't be beat.
The board detected and automatically configured the RAM. That'd be great if the configuration was correct. Good news: you can use DRAM insight in O.N.E. portion to get the correct information. Why that info isn't used to automatically configure I have no idea. This misconfiguration caused the machine to have to attempt boot three times every cold boot. No info in the manual (hardly any info in the manual at all!) about how to troubleshoot this, so fixing it took way more time that it should have.
ATX, but not full size ATX. Three mobo standoffs aren't used. It's a great board for somebody with experience. I couldn't recommend it for your first build though; the documentation is too poor and the bios configuration too tricky.
