Pros: It works as intended. It's cheap.
Cons: None so far. /crosses fingers/
Overall Review: I wasn't sure about this brand even though I know most memory is from Micron. 670 reviews ( mostly high rated) can't be too long. I don't do memtest or any of that but it's worked quite well under load. A great buy if I ever did see one.
Pros: Works as intended. You hardly hear it even under load.
Cons: It's flippin huge. I swore I wouldn't fit on my Micro ATX but it did. I would recommend that you put your own thermal grease on as the stuff they give you is kinda lame.
Overall Review: Well worth the money. I'd buy it again.
Pros: Easy install on my ATX case. Decent onboard video. I get a pretty good frame rate playing bf2.This is a pretty powerful board considering it's a micro atx.
Cons: Kinda tough to change some of the pins on the board because there's not much space to work in. Not much else I can think about. This board is well worth the money and I'd buy it again.
Overall Review: I know that Biostar does not have the same noteriety as Asus, Gigabeat etc however they really came through on this one. It's got all of the features you'd expect of a more expensive board.
Pros: 6 heatpipes, easy to install once you get the intel mounting hardware off. After 3 hours of BF2 with a small overclock the temp on my cpu was 45C. Aside from the side case fan and one on the PSU this is the only fan in my box. It's very quiet even when under a load.
Cons: It's a BIG mother $#%@$ucker. Surprised it didn't drag my micro atx off the case mount.
Overall Review: If your Bios supports SMART use that setting to control the fan. It modifies the rpm's under load. A great buy.
Pros: lots of features for a micro atx board. onboard power and reset switch (nice touch). pretty decent northbridge heat sink. Lots of features in the Bios including three levels of ocing (Ok, I'm too lazy to learn how to do it the right way. Tforce software is pretty decent.
Cons: None reallly. Everything worked first time.
Overall Review: This is my first Biostar board. I'm pretty happy with my purchase. It would be nice if some of the major sites like Toms, anand tech etc had Biostar forums. I like to know what experiences other people have had with their board. Newegg rocks (AS USUAL) they sent my stuff the same day I ordered it. Got it in 2 days. Nice doing business with this company.
