BIOSTAR Microtech released today its top of the line solution for LGA 775 socket - TP35D3-A7 Deluxe motherboard. The Biostar T-series TP35D3-A7 Deluxe is based on Intel P35 + ICH9R chipsets with support for DDR3-1333/1066/800MHz modules and has a special 8 phase voltage regulator power design. This model features 100% solid capacitors, 4x DDR3 DIMMs (max. support up to 8GB), 1x PCIe x16 and 3x PCIe x1 slots and works with all Intel Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad/Celeron 400 Series processors (1333MHz FSB). The board uses a heat-pipe to conduct heat from the chipset heatsink to a PWM fin-heatsink collection module. The TP35D3-A7 Deluxe has also included 2x E-SATA and 6x USB 2.0 ports to support more devices.

I am a huge BIOSTAR fanboy, but what the hell is with all the PCI-E 1x slots??

Do I really need 3? I have never even used 1. Not to mention that leaves me with only 2 PCI slots... which people actually use.

I dont get MOBO manufacturer's obsession with the 1x slots. Sure they are faster, but the lack of compatible products and huge amount of PCI cards in use makes that completely useless!

EDIT: I bet this board rocks though

QFT. Hell i can't imagine how much better some of the 680i boards would have been with just 1 PCI, 1 PCI-E 1x, and 2 PCI-E 16xs. I'd imagine much less resources would be used plus more headroom for cooling or better onboard audio.

Biostar TP35D2-A7 and TP35D3-A7 Deluxe Mainboards Review @ Xbitlabs


Quote:
Overclocking

Overclocker experiments aimed at revealing Biostar TP35D3-A7 Deluxe’s features in this field started with the new BIOS version. However, the board booted, but couldn’t load the Windows operating system even at 450MHz FSB frequency. We studied the monitoring data in the PC Health Status section and discovered that the processor Vcore doesn’t rise and remains nominal. I didn’t want to deal with this new BIOS version any more because it was “loosing†Serial ATA and couldn’t increase processor Vcore, so I returned to the old one, just like in the previous case. However, the situation with the older BIOS version turned out even worse, although all the voltages corresponded to the settings. The board couldn’t start at 450MHz FSB, 430MHz FSB and 410MHz FSB. At 390MHz FSB is finally booted, but failed to load Windows OS again.
Conclusion

You may be surprised, but after those issues I pointed out in the detailed description of Biostar TP35D3-A7 Deluxe and Biostar TP35D2-A7 mainboards, I am still going to make a positive conclusion about these solutions. It is true, both Biostar mainboards we discussed today appeared unstable during overclocking, and revealed some strange feature disappearances. It is a pity that improper implementation turned some of their advantages into drawbacks. But at the same time, Biostar is actually one of the few companies that put a lot of effort into adding new features to their products. Of course, it is the results, but not the efforts that actually matter in the end of the day, but we should give Biostar due credit for working real hard and eventually this effort should pay back.
Hopefully, Biostar engineers will take into account our comments and make the overclocking and BIOS of their solutions as strong and thorough as their PCB design.
PCB looks gorgeous, it is a shame that it OCs so horribly.

Leave it to the experts at XS: 525FSB.

I remember seeing a member with one of these board and he had it up to 465fsb, all on air, but where was it? Can't remember.

Anyhow, there it is, 525.
