This guy doesn't know what he is talking about. There is no such common knowledge and he is just plain wrong. He should really do some research before spouting off on things he has no knowledge of. Many people successfully run Biostar boards with good results. That particular board that OP has is rather low end. Not sure about that.

Just another Biostar hater. No surprise there. Even xd will tell you that their quality is decent.

The crap tier is listening to anything this guy says. Millions of Biostar users would disagree fully.

This forum is about helping people with their rigs, not brand bashing. And this coming from someone not even running AMD. I won't use the word that rhymes with roll just yet but this is bordering on it.

Hmmm.... I've heard of plenty of people having problems with boards from the so-called "God tier".... is that also "common knowledge"?

I have a hard time understanding the Biostar bashers. Both my son and I run Biostar boards and we also both run overclocks. In fact I also run an X2 545 which is unlocked to a quad core and OC'd to 3.37. Biostar boards were some of the first boards to utilize ACC to unlock cores. My belief is that people just don't believe that a budget board can perform so well. But they do perform well. And that is "common knowledge". Or maybe they are just trying to justify the amount of money that they spent on their boards. I will not bash Asus or Gigabyte because I know that they are good boards. But Biostar boards are good as well. Just say no to the bashers.

I agree, i have two of them a ta770 and just recently a ta790x! Both very impressive for the price. The ta770 was a surprisingly good OC'er running a athlon 4800x2 at 3.1 on air non stop for over a year was a good enough reason for me to buy another one.

God tier:
Gigabyte
asus
EVGA
This is from Intel point of view or AMD? XFX are worst than anyone's nor do they make AMD boards anymore same goes with EVGA. I only recommend ASUS or Gigabyte high ends boards to people. Imo Asus and Gigabyte have treated us well AMD or Intel.

Everyone knows that Asus and Gigabyte make good boards but they also have had failures like boards catching on fire (Gigabyte). The point is that Biostar makes good boards aimed at the budget market. They don't claim that they will be the best OC'ing boards out there although the TA890FXE did set a record. So they are definitely not crap! They are decent boards.

Im fully aware that Biostar makes good boards, TA890FXE is an excellent example. So is the Tpower i45. I used one for dice run before and it ran flawlessly. The tpower family are some of the best overclocking boards out there. When it comes to dual core nothing beats the Tpower i45 on LGA 775. Good portion of Biostar's line up are junk. I know ASUS and Gigabyte have their failures. Every brand does. Look at the Classified family. People hype that they are awesome boards. I had a 4 way classified and it was a buggy board, good board still. I got rid of it in favor of a UD3R and was much happier. Though if you buy Asus's higher end board or Gigabyte's Ultra durable family even Vrm failure will likely never happen. Lets face it UD3R/P's are well priced and very affordable.
