This utility is supposed to control the speed of the system fans and be able to set them dynamically according to your settings and CPU speed. File Compression Benchmarks Page The floppy drive connector is also located at the opposite end of the board and for those still using this type of drive it will create a cabling issue. Incidentally, Biostar and Foxconn’s boards were the only two in the roundup that had six USB ports on the back panel, two more than all other entries. Log in Don’t have an account?

Biostar Tforce SLI Deluxe – Tom’s Socket AM2 Motherboard Summer Slam
We once again contacted Biostar and chastised them for this omission. Really waiting for the nforce 5 series to be mature too.
Content Creation Benchmarks Page Notes The Biostar board has a power and reset button right on the PCB, similar to the Asus Crosshair board, although not nearly as snazzy. The Biostar TForce has some unique characteristics that set it apart from the other AM2 boards, as well as some interesting promotional merchandise. For Ethernet connectivity, the requisite two Gigabit network ports utilizing the nForce5 GbE controller are present.
Unfortunately, we do not know what the true limit of this board will be until we see further BIOS optimizations and improvements in the memory voltages. T-Hardware Monitor Utility This utility is for monitoring voltages and temperatures.
The bundled version had similar problems to the T-Fan utility, but after installing a new downloaded version everything worked well. This utility is for monitoring voltages and temperatures. Fixed tfforce 33 Dynamic Tuning: This board did not require a BIOS of the day or week to work with various Conroe steppings or to address memory performance and stability issues. The Biostar board has a power and reset button right on the PCB, similar to the Asus Crosshair board, although not nearly tforfe snazzy.
We’re not sure if this type of policy would hold up in a court of law, but we’re not going to complain about getting the free stuff. Overall, we like the general layout and options on this board. Benchmark Results Page T-Overclock Utility This utility provides overclocking control of system busses biostarr voltage within windows.
While Gigabyte, Foxconn, ECS, Abit, and others have released or are in the process of releasing mainstream P boards, we congratulate Biostar for having a board of this quality available quickly. We found the board to be a very consistent performer and extremely stable up to its limit. Sony drastically cuts PS3 launch allocation.

As with recent Biostar boards in the new TForce series, we see significant BIOS options available for the performance oriented crowd yet they have once again let us down on memory voltages. Basic Performance The performance of the board was at times in the upper segment of our roundup and at others near the bottom when excluding the ASRock value board. Without additional bbiostar voltages up to 2.
We still believe overall that this board is a great value at this time and offers what appears to be the best blend of performance and price in our roundup. This utility provides overclocking control of system busses and voltage within windows.
The balance of the BIOS is obviously tailored for this type of user and unlike others we have tested this BIOS was stable and almost error free for a first release.

While the pin ATX power connection is in an awkward position, Biostar stated this was the best possible location for stable power delivery, and we are seeing this location utilized more and more on other P and X boards now. Auto, PCIe Speeds: Sign up now Username Ttorce Remember Me.
This board only supports up to 2. Happily, the bundled version of the tool worked well the first time out. Test Setup Page File Compression Benchmarks Page Asus Crosshair Page 3: A single Firewire IEEE port is on the motherboard and a header for a second port is available on the board as well.
Still, it is a very useful addition for people who experiment with their rigs outside of a PC case.
