Discussion (BIOSTAR TZ68A+ LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Was wondering if anyone has this motherboard or has any information on it...

BIOSTAR TZ68A+ LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

It was recommended by TechPowerUp, but I wonder if it's reliable & safe? I have never owned a Biostar board...

Anyone?

Discuss....

What I'm looking for is a good 1155 Overclocking Board that isn't too expensive....

This was my 2nd choice, but people said the bios is buggy..

I would personally go with the Asrock. Mainly because I'm not that savy with Ocing and the more people that have a certain board the more info/guides there will be for OCing on it.

I had never owned a BioStar mobo but I've heard pretty good things about them since Sandy Bridge has been on the scene. Here are a some site reviews for you to read about that mobo...Hopefully it will help out with your decision thumb.gif

Overclock3d Review
Tomshardware Comparison Review
Techpowerup Review
Motherboard.org Review

And you already see the majority of the personal reviews on NewEgg shows that this Biostar mobo is reliable. Personally, I would buy it if I did not want to spend a lot of money too wink.gif

Check out the Asus P8Z68-V Pro. This board will give you support for Ivy Bridge.
