The specifications are not to bad, but please Biostar, fire whoever picks the colors of these motherboards. It looks like a real Technicolor yawn. Maybe they should check out the boards of Gigabyte, ASUS or MSI.

Large amount of SATA 3 ports seem to be characteristic of FM2+ boards, my Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-D3H has 8.
