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. 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. T-Overclock Utility This utility provides overclocking control of system busses and voltage within windows. Test Setup Page We found the board to be a very consistent performer and extremely stable up to its limit. We once again contacted Biostar and chastised them for this omission.

T-Overclock Utility This utility provides overclocking control of system busses and voltage within windows.
Biostar TForce 6100 – T-series – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket 754 – GeForce 6100
Without additional memory voltages up to 2. Content Creation Benchmarks Page Happily, the bundled version of the tool worked well the first time out. The bundle includes an add-on bracket with audio connections, a single SPDIF and single optical connector. When we installed our X and started testing for maximum FSB overclocking we were treated with a 9x result that indicates additional headroom is available on this board and hopefully the board will reward us with higher overclocks in the next BIOS revision, so we might find the bioostar FSB ceiling on the board to be near 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.
Tforcce floppy drive connector is also located at the opposite end of the tgorce and for those still using this type of drive it will create a cabling issue.

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.
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. Notes The Biostar board has a power and reset button right on the PCB, similar to gforce Asus Crosshair board, although not nearly as snazzy. While our board and BIOS are from the first production run, we were surprised after dealing with our other P based boards at how stable and generally dialed in this board is right now.

A single Firewire IEEE port is on the motherboard and a header for a second port is available on the board as well. File Compression Benchmarks Page Fixed at 33 Dynamic Tuning: The fans could be run in automatic mode or adjusted as we saw fit. The board has three fan headers in total, one for the CPU cooler and two extras. The Biostar board has a tforxe and reset button right on the PCB, similar to the Asus Crosshair board, although not nearly as tforcee. One could argue that a board in this market sector would probably not require higher memory voltages but a board being marketed for the performance user should include voltages up to 2.
This utility provides overclocking control of system busses and voltage within windows. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. Sony drastically cuts PS3 launch allocation.
The Biostar TForce has some unique characteristics that set it apart from the other AM2 boards, as well as some interesting promotional merchandise.
This board only supports up to 2. We still believe overall that this board is a great value at this tforde and offers what appears to be the best blend of performance and price in our roundup.
We’re not sure if this type of policy would hold up in a court of law, but we’re not going bisotar complain about getting the free stuff. After downloading a newer version of the software however, everything worked well. We found the board to be a very consistent performer and extremely stable up to its limit.
Although we certainly believe that future BIOS releases will extract additional performance from this board, it was nice to boot up this board and have it just plain work as advertised. 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.

The documentation is careful to explain that these are promotional gifts, and are not covered by any warranty at all. The bundled version had similar problems to the T-Fan utility, but after installing a new downloaded version everything worked well.
We had problems with getting the bundled version to work however, and while it was calibrating, the software would shut down the computer. T-Hardware Monitor Utility This utility is for monitoring voltages and temperatures. Still, it is a very useful addition for people who experiment with their rigs outside of a PC case.
