    For $135, BioStar TP67XE is worth it & then some.
  • 51% (28)
    I would do better with Gigabyte, ASUS, or MSI.

I'm sure anyone who reads the TH review will buy an ASRock over a Biostar, at least they will if they're a serious overclocker, not a Biostar fanboi. (cough!)

And even better than that he is saying another board which he also doesnt own is better...

After that, I swore off their gear and went back to Gigabyte/Asus.
What MAN needs a manual? Should I fetch you a white wine spritzer with your assus while I have a beer with my biostar?

Can't question the build quality of t series boards, mine have all been to hell and back.. ran my TA785GE on ln2 for about 7 hours straight and its still in my daily rig now, the "indestructible" phone I had on my desk during that session died tho 890FXE has been on phase since they were released and not a peep out of it.

The bios's can be a bit much to handle when you don't have a clue, anyone with a basic grasp of overclocking and number bonds wont have a problem.

The asrock may clock higher but only because it's running as loose as a wizards sleeve, the biostar will be more efficient performance wise even at lower clocks.
One gear, GO!

I provided proof it was better for OC'ing.

Can't be a fanboi if I don't own it. I just call 'em out.

how so? I'd really like to know considering that the Biostar board actually utilizes dual 8 pin power connectors. Sure, it might not be beneficial on air or water, but it will help the extreme overclocker push his chip a little further.

LoL and everyone attacking Biostar owns Asus... What does that say?
FYI guys, My past 4 motherboards have been Asus, My grandfathers pc I gave him for his Bday has an Asus board... I'm hardly what you can call a Biostar Fanboy..
But in this case. I feel like I got the better deal.... I seem to have been seeing alot of threads about problems with the new Asus P67 boards, Cards not working etc.
