There is a least one review on the net that is negative. This company has address all the issues in that review and then some. The board overclocks very well. The utilites that are provided work. If you need a solid board that will improve your gaming or just want a more powerful AMD machine. This board does the job. I am a gamer and and I overclock everything. This board has allowed me the highest overclock to date for my amd z955 proc. My ram is running at 1800 and my video cards are super stable at 15% overclocks. Skyrim, notorius for problems is running a solid 45 fps with this system at full ultra settings.

Biostar really put together a sweet motherboard. Performance and quality is excellent. I'm not much for over-clocking, however Biostar threw in all the bells and whistles for over-clocking.
I matched the board with a AMD eight core CPU. Very Satisfied with it performance. The TA-990 is priced well and runs like a raped ape on Linux..
1866 memory runs well with no over-clocking. I do wish it had a few more system fan plug-in. It does come with 3. I also prefer SATA ports to come straight out of the board. Biostar turn their
SATA ports facing the hard drive. Makes it a little more difficult to squeeze SATA cables in.
The main reason I choose Biostar over Asus is the two PS2 ports that Biostar offers. For some reason all the rest of the motherboard companies went with only 1 PS2 port.I really didn't want
to buy a new USB KVM switch..You can not go wrong with Biostar's TA-990 FXE.. Amazon had my board here in a jiffy. Very happy customer

Pros: Wow, there's a lot. The bios is great. This is the first UEFI BIOS I've used, and I've been very happy with it. One pro that stands out to me is the CPU temp readout directly on the board. If you have a case with an acrylic side panel, it's pretty handy. I had no problem with any of the layout. The chipset heatsinks are pretty large, but didn't get in the way of anything. I really can't say enough good things about this board. It's well designed and performs great. I don't see how anyone could be dissapointed by it. It even looks pretty.

Cons: The only con I can scrounge up is that my 1600 ram was detected as 1333. No big deal though, it's easy to find the settings and change it to 1600.

Other Thoughts: I think I'll be keeping this motherboard for a long time. I haven't tried overclocking with it yet, but I'm running a 8350 so I don't think I'll need to. I also only have one graphics card on it at the moment, but there seems to be enough room for another even though it has a huge heatsink on it.

I bought this motherboard because it had all of the features I was looking for (crossfire support at 16x, usb 3.0, fast RAM speeds and AM3+ socket)
it delivered on everything I was looking for.
The only problems I've encountered were that the documentation is a little lacking, and the BIOS is a little awkwardly laid out. It's nice that it's GUI, but the organization is pretty strange.

Check reviews on overclocking. Does closer to high end Asus boards than Gigabyte. Looks great for Red team builds. Has UEFI Bios with mouse input. Auto overclock needs improvement.

Has a weird molex port to provide "extra" power to PCI lanes for "high end" gpus. It is recommended to use this regardless according to customer support. Very little in the way of support with releasing new drivers and BIOS, but there have been updates to Toverclocker software in the last month.

First board bought refurbed posted right away, then died while installing windows.
Second board still going strong.

Bottom line, if you are a pro when it comes to overclocking and tweaking, then this board will benefit you over many of the boards in the same price range.

If you are a noob, get the gigabyte. They have tutorials to follow all over the internet on OC'ing.

I would've spent the extra $100 to get the ASUS boards, but when I started, this was my first build. I didn't know I'd fall in love with the PC culture coming from console.

Bought this for myself for Christmas and right not it has a FX-8120 OCed to a conservative 4Ghz.
Board is rock solid and the Bios is easy to set up.
This is my 2nd Biostar MB and what sealed the deal is the rock solid reliability of my old board; which is still going strong on my old workstation.

I'm sure I will have years of trouble free service out of the TA990FXE.
