In terms of overall performance this board is simply amazing. it managed to keep pace with most of enthusiast level motherboards. At this price point it represents an amazing value to the consumer. Most of whom tend to be gamers rather than hard-core enthusiasts. By B. Ramirez

Today we are going to be taking a look at Biostar's X79 TPower motherboard. This board supports the latest Intel 2011 processors and also features their latest X79 chipset. Biostar has earned a well-deserved reputation for producing very powerful products that come with a very reasonable price tag. This board shouldn't be any different. It currently retails for about $230 dollars. This puts it in the lower range of pricing for a board like this and it's actually one of the cheapest options for this new chipset from Intel at the moment.

For those that want a detailed analysis of what this new chipset has in store, please read the previous reviews that we've written on other boards of this type here on this website.
