The BIOSTAR TA970 motherboard is a great choice for those wanting to build a powerful yet budget-friendly AM3+ processor based system. It's powered by AMD 970 Chipset, and supports Socket AM3+ AMD FX/ Phenom II/ Athlon II processor. The latest USB 3.0 and SATA III allow you to transfer and retrieve data at blistering speed. With CrossFire X, you can scale the graphics performance by incorporating two VGA cards into a single system.
Performance is just part of the story. The Blu-ray audio redefines your listening experience on a PC. This board is designed to be a tough guy, with moisture-proof PCB, ESD Protection and OC / OV / OH Protection circuit. Five-phase power design and 100% solid caps take stability and overclocking potential to the next level. An array of user-friendly software is provided, to streamline and optimize your everyday use.
The popularity of PC usage and working environment is getting deteriorating and moist (rural, coastal, etc.). The PCB will be oxidizing easily by damp or absorbed moisture, and ionic migration or CAF (Conductive Anodic Filament) will be generated. Moisture-proof PCB meets high density and high reliability requirements for moisture proof.
5 Phase Power Phase Design
5-phase VRM design with high quality power components such as low RDS (on) Mosfet for lower temperature has the advantage to raise the overclocking ability.
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 by PC users when touch any devices connect to PC, which may result in damage to motherboard or parts. ESD protection is designed to protect the motherboard and equipment from damage by EOS.
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.
SmartSpeedLAN is a free software application which monitors and manages your PC's network behavior. With user-friendly GUI, it allows you to select and prioritize different types of network traffic, including gaming, media streaming, communications or web surfing. You can also set any specific applications, choosing to prioritize or block accordingly. SmartSpeedLAN can feature automatic management options that use adaptive networking intelligence to ensure that you are getting the best online experience possible.
Charger booster is the best and efficient charger solution for Apple devices such as iPad, iPhone. Basically, Charger booster Technology is able to boost the charging time to be more efficiency and faster once any Apple goods connecting to the Motherboard. With charger booster technology, you are able to charge your Apple devices up to 42 % faster.
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 backwards compatible with previous USB 2.0 components.
One or two external SATA 3Gb/s ports connectivity delivers minimal host overhead and host to device latency.
Upgrading your Audio performance in the easiest way is choosing BIOSTAR ultimate Motherboard. It does support Blu-ray audio DRM (compatible driver/software) and provide the higher audio output of 24 bit/ 192KHz than the 16 bit/ 48KHz from the normal MB. You will experience the high quality sound effect with pure Blu-Ray Audio.
ATI CrossFire X Technology
ATI CrossFireX is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. With game-dominating power, ATI CrossFireX technology enables two or more discrete graphics processors to work together to improve system performance. It supports up to four ATI Radeon HD graphics cards, making it the most scalable gaming platform ever! The BIOSTAR TA970 motherboard supports two graphics cards.
BIO-Flasher is a convenient BIOS update tool. Just launch this tool and put the BIOS on USB pen driver before entering the OS. You can update your BIOS with only a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy disk or other complicated flash utility.
