880 chipset rockin

Pros: micro atx
sata3 (6gb/s)
HD 4250 integrated video
descent VRM setup (not heatsinked)
x16 pcie 2.0 slot

Cons: sata port placement
only usb 2.0
no 1x pcie slot
no stock vrm heatsink

Other Thoughts: i have 2 of these mb's. i like building micro atx builds that can also game and i have to say that these little biostar boards are great for just that. up until 2014 this was the only micro atx board i could find with sata 3 (6gb/s) in the am3+ socket market. you can get sata 3 in the fm2+ socket market but you can't use the FX cpu line that i feel is AMD's best gaming socket. i put MOS-C1 copper heatsinks on the VRM's and both of my 880gz's can overclock FX 6300 cpu's to 4.5ghz with no overheating problems. that's outstanding for what these boards are and cost.

i don't like the fact they are only usb 2.0 capable though. they don't have a x1 pcie slot to add a card to make it possible either. this alone would usually have caused me to give it only 4 eggs but the longevity of these boards deserve 5 eggs. i have put them through the mill and they keep on running. outstanding!

you will be hard pressed finding one of these boards now other than maybe a refurb on ebey but compared to what's out there now in the micro atx market it may be worth the chance.

A880GZ

Pros: Price. 6 Gbps sata.

Cons: Windows 7 constantly tells me to plug my devices into a USB 2.0 port. All of my chipset drivers are up to date, and I have even reinstalled windows with no luck. Very annoying. Also, I have a back lit keyboard which has to be unplugged and re-plugged in every time the computer wakes up from sleep.

Other Thoughts: Spend the extra $20 and go with something more reliable.

Piece of (word censored) Junk

Pros: Hasn't completely died yet.

Cons: POST occasionally fails when powering up computer. Only recognizes my keyboard once every three times it's powered on. CRASHES THE COMPUTER CONSTANTLY! I can't play more than 5 minutes of video games before this junk motherboard fails and the computer shuts off. Manufacturer doesn't update drivers.

Other Thoughts: Avoid Biostar like the plague they are.

Sorry to hear of your troubles, but this does not sound like normal operations of the motherboard. Drivers are updated by the chipset manufacturer, AMD for the chipset, Realte for the Audio and LAN.
For the issues you are having, recommend that you contact Biostar support for assistance. 626-581-1055 menu 2 or email support@biostar-usa.com

Does the job

Pros: mATX board run AM3+
Handles an fx 8320
Can OC ( I don't reccomend!)

I only get it 5 eggs based on price to performance and that it handle an 8 core cpu after a bios update np.

Cons: NO mosfet cooling
Only 4 SATA ports

That's it, no other issues with this board.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased 3 of these boards, and they have all served well under proper use. I was able to unlock the 2 extra cores on a 960t with one board. and we fried another OCing a 1090t to 4.0. hit 3.8 stable. think we cooked the mosfets reaching for the sky. The most recent one is in my htpc/steam box running a FX8320 with a CM n520 cooler for a few month, HD 7950, and 8 gigs of gskill 1600. Lots of video encoding and indie games.
