Pros: work for a cheap HTPC
Cons: Cant think of any after I worked some bugs out.
Other Thoughts: It would not post with just two sticks of memory and a Intel Pentium G3258 With just a power supply and board ,cpu and memory. I got it to post with one stick of memory, and later two sticks after I upped the voltage on them to 1.65v (it would go into a loop rebooting with out upping the voltage with a ssd drive connected.}. but after I connected a DVD drive it would just refuse to post...So to make it short my 250$ power supply that worked great with a AMD t1090 and GTX 670 was not compatible with this. Put a cheap 49$ corsair in and it fired up with zero problems installing windows 7.READ FULL REVIEW
I like the back jacks
easy to install
Everything works like it said. Played with overclocking on it some and seems to work, Just don't expect much from the new intel chips.
Cons: Nothing much that I can see off hand, But the manual that came with it is kind of small, I would of liked a big book to read and not a small book that's hard to for my old eyes.
The system panel connector should be on the side, but I cant see it anyway when I closed the case. But I know that anyway before I ordered it.
Other Thoughts: intel 4970K
4x2G 3V4G3D/US Samsung 1.35V memory (hard to find)
Water Cooled on Apogee XL, D5 Pump, two single 140x Occool Rads.
SeaSonic SS-520FL2 Power supply
Pros: Never had a problem with BIOSTAR boards, still have a old T bird amd board that works. It just works, I had Zero problems with installing it.
I installed my old AMD 4870x2 Video card and it fired up with zero problems. Later I installed a new HD7790 (just to cool things down). Fired right up zero problems.
Happy with Biostar
Cons: would of been nice to have a optical out for audio on back, but not a big thing for the cost of board.
