Biostar TZ68A+ Review

3D Mark Vantage

Vantage has a wealth of gaming tests built in and the TZ68A+ has no problems in pumping the data to the PCIe lane and keeping our GTX570 busy.

3D Mark 11

Finally 3D Mark 11 and its bevy of hardcore graphics tests. The TZ68A+ has no difficulty in pushing our GTX570 along and whilst it's not at the leading edge of our results it's still in the right ballpark.

Fancy entering the LGA1155 world on a budget? Perhaps the latest Biostar board is just the ticket.

Not bad and as said in the review it's only £92 and for that it is a good board and value for money.Quote

for an extra £15 though you can get the gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3...which is much the same ... BUT Biostar have a lot of returns .. and following suit with most e-tailers who now have to return all products to the manufacturers (this is the bain of my working existence)...its far easier to deal with Gigabytes RMA team then Biostars ... as a discussional point the mid range section of all components seems to be getting out of hand ... I spend most of my day explaining that for an extra £5 here and an extra £2 there you can get a better class of component ... check ebuyer for example ... the gulf in class between high end and top mid range (especially graphics cards) is but a few quid ... even though its a good priced board I have a feeling it will disappear amidst the swamp of other boards within this price range that are on the horizon ...Quote

But for someone who is on a budget it's a good deal, there is always something better you can get for a few quid more but for the bellow and around the £100 mark on motherboards there ain't much of a difference anyway. This board is for general use it's not a board you would buy for overclocking or running high end GPUs on and for £92 you get what you pay for.Quote

I have to say that is one of the ugliest motherboards. I looks like they went through there stock list of MB fittings and pulled out all there over stock and slapped it on one motherboard. Well good thing its cheap and performs with looks like that (as I once about my ex girlfriend lol).Quote

I can't say anything bad about this board, or any other Intel-based Biostar board, because I don't own one, but I can say I won't waste the money to find out. My A880G board just crapped out( no lan, unstable/wrong CPU voltage). And besides , M/Bs are the second to last place you should cheap out on.(PSU is first. )Quote

Why is it that el cheapo part makers are determined to make their el cheapo parts look cheap?

Had they stuck to red and black it would have looked pretty nice. Instead some clever pleb goes "Ooo let's throw some white on there and ruin it!"Quote
