It is mounted to the chassis using 8 screws. Since Gigabyte has remained an independent company, there is no reason to fear monopolization and unfair competition in the near future. High-quality components are used in power supply circuits. And what of the other companies, figuratively speaking, the small bushes and shrubbery? The set of brand utilities includes T-Utility suite, which can be installed in parts: The respectable EPoX brand will not be left without orders for a while.

The height of the northbridge heatsink for the new version has been reduced hiostar that there is no way it can conflict with any processor cooler whatsoever.

And what of the other companies, figuratively speaking, the small bushes and shrubbery? Motherboards under Intel and Sapphire brands are produced, for obvious reasons, using only “select” chipsets that are geared towards system integrators and don’t make a difference in retail. The memory slots are marked in correspondence to first and second channel, which is a small, but nice feature.

They are described as corresponding to “Extra, Extreme and Extraordinary” ,an of overclocking. About Us Employment Privacy Policy. For example, Biostar TForce Otherwise, you should use a massive cooler, which is not always economically justified. After the board is installed into the chassis all sockets and jumpers are still easily accessible.

To be fair, the TAG AM2 motherboard isn’t exactly built to be a massive overclocking platform either. The motherboard was provided for tests by the manufacturer Dmitriy Laptev lpt ixbt. Not to mention such an interesting set of brand features, which includes, by the way, 4 video-out ports on the rear panel.

Biostar TAG AM2 – a Motherboard Based on AMD G (Socket AM2) Chipset

That is why the smaller heatsink still copes with its job. In addition, besides testing Biostar’s board using Catalyst 7.


The table shows Biostar results for the 7. In case of our processor the resulting clock rates were 2. Over Clock – provides overclocking including changing the clock rate, multiplier and voltage of the CPU core, memory clock rate and voltage, and frequencies of PCI and PCI-Express buses the latter ability is available only in this utility and is not in the BIOS ; Hardware Doctor – monitoring of ra690g parameters; Fan Control – monitoring rotation rate of coolers and temperature of CPU and “the system”, enabling Smart Fan mode and setting a constant rotation rate for both fans is also available; BIOS Live Update – automatic BIOS update ta690b the ability to search for the latest version on biosttar manufacturer’s web-site.

We hope that it isn’t going to be because the scarce supply of Biostar’s boards will fall short of the potential demand.

The CPU voltage can be increased 0. Of course, you cannot use all of them to output a different picture onto each of 4 displays.

Until then in order to reduce the noise one may use corresponding fan’s rotation rate control options of the brand Biowtar in Windows. High CPU temperature leads to increased chipset temperature, which eventually may adversely affect the term of stable operation although it is just a theoretical remark.

Privacy policy and Terms of Use. Only the northbridge heatsink, which resides near the processor socket, may in theory obstruct the installation of a non-standard CPU cooler. The same is true for Jetway, which is oriented towards low-end products.

Non-standard settings were not tested for operability. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. We must note the flawless operation of the SRS, which is Biostar’s support of automatic parameter restoration after ta60g hang-up due to excessive overclocking.


Biostar TA690G AM2 – T-series – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket AM2 – AMD 690G

The ability to save BIOS settings profiles and a built-in updating utility are also untypical of the boards of this level. It seems so, except for a couple of companies, more specifically: Board’s layout is almost perfect, which has already become a good tradition for Mini-ATX models. CPU Fan Off – fan stops when the temperature drops below the set value; CPU Fan Start – fan starts when the temperature rises in other words, one can set different values for start and stop in order to avoid the fan toggling frequently between on and off state ; CPU Fan Full Speed – temperature value for the maximum rotation rate; Start PWM Value – temperature threshold, above which rotation rate is adjusted gradually; PWM Slope – rotation rate increment for each degree of change in temperature.

Three automatic overclocking modes with names hinting at automobile engine designations V6, V8 and V12 are offered as well. Allow to switch on and reboot the computer without having to connect corresponding cables from the chassis front panel to the board. The standard algorithm can be modified for the CPU fan in order to set the 4 temperature thresholds: The respectable EPoX brand will not be left without orders for a while.
