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
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.
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.
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.
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.
