Biostar Tforce P35, Any good?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Any of you guys read any reviews or had any experience with the Tforce P35, or Biostar in general? I heard that this board Overclocks extremely well and is a great value for its price. But still can't find too much info on it. I'm falling a little tight on money right now, so for a P35, would much rather spend $95 on the Biostar than $135 on a DS3R - if it is a good board that is.

IMO the biostar boards are great! They have one menu that has all voltage/fsb/dividers

Biostar is a solid brand. Their TForce 550 and TForce 965P boards were the best bang-for-your-buck overclocking boards. I say go for the P35, and let us know what you find out about it!

I really like the overclocking menu on my 965PT...it was very simple and easy. They are solid boards usually and good overclockers.

Well, I always hear their boards are good, but how is their support. Also, that stupid power connector is in a horrible spot, especially after getting a CPU HS/F. Why couldn't they just put it by the ram like everyone else

Also, anyone know how this compares to the Tforce 965 which was around much longer and much more info on it, or the Abit AB9 Pro?

I just can't seem to stick to a Motherboard... Decisions decisions...

Well the p35 board the normal version is a poor version of the p35 and doesnt do anything like what the 965 did for that chipset. I have not scene more then a couple of reviews but it basically would do the 500 or so fsb if it was lucky and wouldnt go any farther unlike all the other p35 boards.
Now the ddr3 version that biostar puts out is suppose to be a ocing monster just hasnt been tested all that much yet.

I don't think I'm really looking for over 400-450FSB (on an E6600) so that really isn't an issue for me. I'm just looking for a decent board without all the bells and whistles that could sit stable at the 400-450 range. I don't really think Penryn support is really an issue, because if I would have the $500+ or whatever the price of it would be to spend, throwing $150 on a new motherboard won't be an issue. I just want something that will sit stable and have a decent OC.

I really wanted to buy a DS3, but after hearing of all the memory issues regarding D9 chips (the Ballistix I have) or using 4GB ram on that board, I'm not sure if it is a wise move to buy it anymore.

I am also looking at the exact same mobos and I can't decide what to chose... any recommendations if I'm running an E6320 and a 2900XT?

Sorry for hijacking thread, but hopefully we'll both get some answers.

The Biostars are rock solid boards and high quality, the only draw back to their price/performance is the board layout imo. other than that they're an awesome budget board.
