A solid foundation for your new build, the BIOSTAR TB85 motherboard offers quality and a wealth of features at a competitive price. It's based on the Intel B85 chipset, and works flawlessly with 4th generation Intel Core processor in LGA 1150 package. The blazing-fast USB 3.0 and SATAIII allow you to take full advantage of the latest storage technology. And with ESD Protection, all solid capacitor design and OC / OV / OH Protection circuit, this model offers unbeatable stability, reliability and durability you can count on even in demanding situations.
100% Solid Caps
With armor-plated Biostar Technology, all capacitors are placed with 100% solid capacitors that have a lasting life cycle, durability and stability for crucial components.
ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) is the major factor to destroy PC by electrical overstress (EOS) condition, ESD occurred when PC users touch any devices connected to the PC, which may result in damage to motherboard or parts. ESD protection is designed to protect the motherboard and equipment from damage by EOS.
Onboard dedicated power fuse helps prevent USB port failure. It prevents USB Port overcurrent and safeguards your system and device lifespan.
OC / OV / OH Protection
All BIOSTAR special circuit design detects overvoltage conditions and prevents voltage surges from spreading in real time. It also actively cuts off the overvoltage supply to protect your system. Over current protection helps avoid motherboard from damage when doing overclock or an unusual current import. Over heat protection helps avoid motherboard & CPU from burning when exceeding the temperature limitation.
BIOS Virus Protection
When enabled, the BIOS will protect the boot sector and partition table by halting the system and flashing a warning message whether there's an attempt to write to these areas.
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is a brand new framework that provides a revolutionary interface. It is a modern clear and easy-to-use graphical user interface. The UEFI comes with a colorful easy-to-understand icons that lead users into the setup layer directly.
PCI-E Gen 3.0
PCI-E 3.0 is the next evolution of the ubiquitous and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard. At 8GT/s bit rate, the interconnect performance bandwidth is doubled over PCI-E 2.0, while preserving compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces.
SATAIII 6Gbps provides a higher bandwidth to retrieve and transfer HD media. With this super speed data transfer, SATAIII allows an incredible data boost which is 2x faster than the SATA 3G.
Experience fastest data transfers at 5 Gbps with USB 3.0. Built to connect easily USB 3.0 components and peripherals, USB 3.0 transfers data 10X faster and is backwards compatible with previous USB 2.0 components.
The motherboard provides high quality sound with minimal loss of audio fidelity.
DVI is better than VGA for LCD displays since it is digital while VGA is analog. For LCD displays, the picture is digitized pixel per pixel. Through DVI, the panel gets data for each pixel, so the picture generated in the Graphics device matches the pixels on the panel itself.
Users can easily assemble their own computer, a simple-swap data discs and other accessories.
