Biostar ta870u3+ am3

Does anyone have this board? Does it perform well and how long have you been using it? I just ordered it from Amazon and I am pretty excited because I am currently using a micro ATX board from Biostar and it works like a champ for my current build.

I am going to be pairing it with this ( ), which I've also just ordered. I don't plan on SLI with this board or overclocking (if I do, it will be very light overclocking). I will probably end up using the second PCI express x4 slot for a sound card or something. I will also, eventually be upgrading to 8GB of RAM and a Phenom II x4 955 or somewhere around there.

What do you guys think? I don't want this to be look at from an insane overclocking/water cooling perspective. Look at it from a little more than a budget/current generation CPU/single GPU/etc. perspective.

While I don't have any experience with that particular mobo.... I've used numerous other Biostar boards (currently have 7 of them ) , and have had pretty good going with them.... so I think it'll do just fine for you.

Yeah I have that board. Its a pain in the butt to OC because of the weird way the bios defines the voltages. But im currently working it.
post #8 of 8
You have 2 places to adjust the voltages. OVER VOLTAGE and AMD P-state.
