It is made for mining
It has really tight pciE slots
It is fairly laid out (except for the mobo mounting holes- one corner has no mount)
The instructions suck. Lots of trial and error even with a manual.
Been building cpus 20 years and have futzed with this board way more than I should of... N00bs beware.
Could NOT get the sixth card to work in the 16x slot at all with no amount of BIOS tweaks... 5 cards solid - 6 cards armageddon ...
Would not recommend this board.
"Dear BIOSTAR User,
Thank you for contact with BIOSTAR.
We apologize for this. In BIOSTAR RMA policy, The RMA Center needs to take with-in 10 working days to process each case. Please understand. Thank you!"
If this end well I may change my comment, but for know, I dont think so Biostar... EVGA ships RMA mobo in less than 5 working days, ASUS and ASROCK too, my first Biostar RMA, and is not going very well...
I have tried for several days to get this to work with Linux but I couldn't get it to work unless I had 3 cards or less connected. Finally, I tried to install Windows and was able to do so, which is weird. But I kept on and after 10 minutes or so of using the cards the rig will reboot. I tried to use only 5 cards but same result. My power supply is more than needed.
Another issue I had with this is that I couldn't boot from USB, see during boot it shuts down the USB ports for a split second but enough to interrupt any boot process.
It is possible I got a bad unit but I had reached out to Biostar on may 19th (about 6 months ago) and never got a reply. I submitted another request today but am not hopeful for a reply. This product fails at it's very stated purpose and the support for this is non-existent.
If you are considering this I would advise instead choosing a more mainstream company. You won't spend that much more money and the money you spend on this will not be returned to you if it ends up a lemon.
I see a lot of positive reviews which means there is a game of chance here. But is it really worth the hassle over a company that will resolve any issues you have?
Lamentablemente, no puedo confiar mi trabajo en un equipo que no me garantiza calidad, y mas aun, cuando el periodo de devolución es tan corto, solo pueden comprar quienes la usen de inmediato, no se puede almacenar ni usar para grandes operaciones.
