BIOSTAR TA870U3+ AM3 AMD 870 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Follow-up for my first review 05/27/2012

This review is from: BIOSTAR TA870U3+ AM3 AMD 870 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Hi, I installed this board in a Raidmax Skyline case and it was like a heaven match for these two. Temperature I measured with fully loaded game playing at high settings (Battle field 3, Diablo II) was never passed 55 degree Celsius, me and my friends owed several Raidmax cases and they 're all very good built , if you want your components to stay cool and lasts GO for Raidmax cases ; you won't feel regretting at all guarantee !!!

Cons: Match this board with Raidmax cases they 're extremely reliable and the color will look very nice through the side window , wifey won't complain for sure. Plus Raidmax RMA&customer service are very polite and professional. I like their non-hassles warranty, no questions asked you e-mail them the receipt and they sent you the replacement parts almost instantly. Also I praised Newegg shipping and packing, extreme handle and above expectation.

Other Thoughts: See my first review.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Mobo at reasonable cost 05/14/2012

This review is from: BIOSTAR TA870U3+ AM3 AMD 870 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Easy overclock, lots of features sata 6 Gb/s, USB 3.0, very good for Gaming.

Cons: User friendly, reasonable price with rebates, nice box color and runs cool like a refrigerator so no need to jack up your electric bill !

Other Thoughts: I bought this on sale while ago plus rebates didn't come up pass $80 bones. Unlocked my AMD Phenom black edition into quad core(bought here at Newegg too) with one touch of F4 no sweat, I overclocked it at 3.8 GHz with temperature at full load (played Crysis II and DIABLO games on) never passed 55C; idling at 24C (dun no why some complaints about the board 'temperature)I meant I really pushed this board to its limit and it's not failed me in the last 6mths or so. Came to me in a nice package I liked it even my mom couldn't stop staring at the box; I think I'll buy an other one and build a nice system for Mama at Mother's day.
Here is my rigs in case you're curious:
Biostar TA870U3+ , AMD Phenom quad core Overclock at 3.8 GHz;G-skill Ripjaws X series 2x4GBOC at 1600 MHz ; GPU Sapphire AMD Radeon 6870 GDDR5; 120GB OCZ vertexIII SSD runs as caching; 2 xWD 320GB at Raid1; Raidmax Skyline case with 500W Antec high current gamers series PWS; TP Link wireless N+ adapter;

ASRock Z68 PRO3-M LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: start up right at the beginning, and let it ran for 72hrs straight non stop then I shut it down, re-start again and runs it till today. Win7 ult 64x, no problems at all. Fit nicely in my HTPC, yet wish that it supports crossfire or SLI

Cons: easy installation, user friendly. Low temperature board, idle at 32c and load at 55c ; OC to 4.0 GHz still runs like a champ !I play World of warcrafts, grandtheft auto, battlefield bad company never got stalled or shut down.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again for my second rig just wait a bit for the price to drop. My rig now:
Intel i3 2120 ; 8 Gb g skill ripjaws ; XFX ATI Radeon HD 6850; LIAN-LI PC-C33 case; 2 Samsung spinpoint sata 3, 32 mb cache at raid 0 controller; Pioneer blue ray internal drive and Rosewill wireless adapter, card reader.
