BIOSTAR Hi-Fi A70U3P FM2+ / FM2 AMD A70M SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: none

Cons: Too many defective boards.

Other Thoughts: 2 bad boards in a row, and they were NOT the same problems with both boards. The first board would power on for a second or two and then shut down. The second board stayed running but had no video. 2 bad boards in a row; it ain't gonna happen a third time. Others who have purchased this board have also had similar problems.

I have built a number of computers with Biostar motherboards and was impressed with the quality of their boards, but this board is the worst.

AMD A10-5800K Trinity Quad-Core 3.8 GHz Socket FM2 100W AD580KWOHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's AMD. Price is right.

Cons: Burnt out on me in just over 3 years; it was only days out of warranty

Other Thoughts: I always use AMD processors when building computers, but this one, for my own personal computer, burnt out when it was just over the warranty period. Using it in two different motherboards, the CPU temps were climbing up so high, the board would just shut down when under a heavy load. I initially thought it was the Gigabyte motherboard that was at fault, but I purchased an ASRock MB, and it did the same as the Gigabyte board. This is the first time I in 12 years I have encountered a processor that did this.

Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Vital M.2 2280 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDAV120GB-D8
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: none

Cons: doesn't work

Other Thoughts: Not recommended. Neither BIOS or Windows disk manager in 10 could see the drive. UEFI BIOS showed that the slot was empty even after trying to reseat it several times. I wanted this drive to work so I didn't have to return it, but nothing worked, so I returned it.

I would never recommend a defective product like this one to anyone.
