BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Not good fo AMD FX 8320 or higher 03/15/2014

This review is from: BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Low Price, works

Cons: Performance loss of about 15% compared to a better motherboard with an AMD FX-8320 at the same clock speeds.

Northbridge/Mosfet temps are really high, when I set temperature limits of 80 C, the system shut itself down.

BIOS is missing features on other boards, and has no mouse functionality.

Other Thoughts: I built 4 systems with the FX-8320 and this one is by far the slowest. Benchmarks are less consistent and average about 15% lower than other boards. I thought I was saving $40 by going with this board when it was on sale, but the lack of performance will cost me more than that for my usage. DO NOT buy for 125W processors.

Rosewill RKV-4UC 4 Port USB Cable KVM, 0.9m Cable Built with Speaker MIC Remote Flip Button - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Costs less than the cables it contains would separately. Has a little button with a decent length wire (~5ft), which allows you to switch between computers. Two USB cables, an audio and mic cable, and a VGA cable per computer (4)and for output. Has 4 lights so you know which is connected. This saves me so much time switching between the computers.

Cons: Input cables (to towers) are a little short (~3ft), but you can buy additional cables to extend them if you want/need to.

Other Thoughts: Great purchase, makes my setup look great.

Team Zeus Blue 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TZBD38G1600HC9DC01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: works as specified, lower profile heat sinks

make sure you go into bios and select the xmp profile

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've bought 3 sets of Team 1600 MHz memory and all three have worked well. I was a little worried about the brand, but they seem high quality.
