    I would do better with Gigabyte, ASUS, or MSI.

Which mobo was it? Did you do any research on it?

I've had my Biostar for a little over a year and it's awesome. I was also a little apprehensive at first but have no regrets whatsoever.

I can never buy a mobo that has less than (3) site reviews about it from reputable sites. I had Googled that mobo you are disappointed with and could not find any site reviews. Personal reviews from NewEgg are never enough to satisfy me when planning to buy a mobo (not saying you are the opposite).

My TP67XE is great. My only complaint is the CPU fan speed control is sorta sketchy, it's either on minimum fan speed or max fan speed... nothing in between. Voltage regulation is great.

Notice how everyone that is pleased with biostar has high-end biostar mobos.....The low-end ones are ok...But the high end are excellent...Go for the TP67XE, excellent board, espically since i grabbed mine for $130

Bam!



And got for $134.99 Apparently, MicroCenter was not supposed to have the $134.99 price sign on the shelf. It was only meant to be the price for the TP67XE when Sandy Bridge was 1st released. Somebody had forgotten to remove it so they had treated the incident as a price error & was forced to sell it for that amazing price



Now all I need is the 2500K & GSkill memory (sometime next week)
post #29 of 74
why did you pay for microcenter's warranty?

the mobo is under warranty from biostar

MC's warranty is soooooo much better than the manufacturer's warranty & also, since this is my work/gaming rig, I need to be able to receive a replacement mobo within 1 day. MC's warranty will allow you to exchange the mobo for another one OR receive a full refund on a MC gift card...It can't get no better than that & personally for me, it's worth the extra $$$ since I usually upgrade mobos every 2-3 years.

2 years for $20 from MC is better than 2 years for $36 from NewEgg
