GIGABYTE GA-F2A88X-UP4 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) 7 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Nice looks, excellent chipset cooling

Cons: Horrible technical support, Dual bios malfunctions, bios development seems to be halted

Other Thoughts: I have had this board for a long time and you should know that I have in the past, loved Gigabyte's products.I had to RMA this board because of SATA PORT 0 breaking off and bios corruption. RMA did not address the bios issue and micro-soldered a new SATA port. They never contacted me except by email. Bios still corrupted. Will I send it in again? Probably not. It's the worst technical support I have ever dealt with. I have owned many main boards and this is, by far the worst experience with support I have had.

BIOSTAR Hi-Fi A88W 3D FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bio star keeps on surprising me with their motherboards. This is by far, one of the best A88 boards I have used. I was skeptical at first because of some reviews I read. After using it for a few weeks, I am very impressed. The bios is amazing, its stability can't be matched for the price.

Cons: Nothing concluded...

ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) 7 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Plenty of fan headers, it looks ok

Cons: Buggy as hell, prone to boot failures, data ports do not work in unison, bios is stutter-plagued. I don't need to continue. I would return it if I could but I waited too long and I'm married to it now.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this manufacturer to anyone I know.
