BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z97WE LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Sound flaky and I need the audio 02/26/2015

This review is from: BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z97WE LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Excellent price and everything works great...

Cons: .... except the sound. Sound drops during games with the latest updates, grounded-off set screws, tested power supply, did just about everything I could to get the sound to work. Put a different soundcard in, disabled the on-board still exhibits the same issue. Seems to be a known issue yet no fix as with their Z87 predecessor.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately the sound thing is a deal-breaker and I am now looking at a different mainboard - otherwise this mainboard is perfect.

Intel BOXDQ77MK LGA 1155 Intel Q77 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It was very affordable when I bought it last September and fast! On board sound is good for most intentions

Cons: None really, had a bit of an issue with the TPM not being compatible.

Other Thoughts: Fixed the TPM issue by installing the software, activating the chip with the software, reinstalling Windows, then turning on the TPM. Then it was fine, oh, and the NICs began to go, eventually with Windows first, then with every other operating system. Linux Mint lasted the longest....

Intel BOXDQ77MK LGA 1155 Intel Q77 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Has everything you could possibly want for a straight-forward build

Cons: Had an issue initially starting it up, turned out to be a screw that had fallen behind the board and bridged a connection on the back, possibly grounded it out. Removed board, put everything back in and now it's running fine.

Other Thoughts: Has TPM, runs Linux Mint 13 32/64 bit Cinnamon straight out of the box.
