Biostar TA690G AM2 AMD 690G Motherboard Review

For most of its existence, the AMD processor platform has heavily depended on third party chipsets made by VIA, nVIDIA, ATI, ALI, or SIS. It's fortunes were tied to the performance and capabilities of 3rd party core logic. In 2006 AMD gobbled up the Canadian videocard company ATi. ATI had been making headway with its own line of motherboard chipsets, and for the first time since this merger AMD has had its own in-house motherboard chipset to pair with an Athlon64 processor. The last time the planets aligned like this was with the AMD750 Irongate (Slot A) and the AMD760 (Socket A, SMP platform), but in each of those situations that was core logic born out of utter necessity.

I've been waiting to see a review stating how well this board overclocks, but they tested the overclocking ability with a CPU that has a 14x multi, so they only got to 223HTT.

Anyone seen overclocking results from this board? Biostar's past mATX TForce boards have been real winners.

Looks to be a great board, Biostar is really pushing out some winners nowadays.

I have been using a Biostar 6100 / 939 board with an AMD 3400 for budget builds. Works great and is quite fast for a 300.00 system
