BIOSTAR, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards, and storage devices today, introduces the brand new B660GTN motherboard. BIOSTAR kicks off 2022 with a brand-new lineup of B660 chipset motherboards that support the latest 12th gen Intel processors.

Designed with BIOSTAR's signature motherboard design language, the B660GTN features Rock Zone RGB lighting controlled by Vivid LED DJ software providing unprecedented customization capability for users looking to theme their build to their tastes.



With RAM support of up to 64 GB of DDR4 across 2 DIMM slots that can handle 5000Mhz of boosted clock speeds, the B660GTN caters to multiple use cases in a small form factor. It contains a single PCI-E 5.0 x16 slot that supports the best graphics cards in the market and M.2 PCI-E 4.0 (64 Gb/s) for faster data transmission that helps run AAA games faster with buttery-smooth frame rates.

BIOSTAR's signature power management features are ever so present in their latest motherboards; the B660GTN is no exception. With a 9 phase power design enabled by 10K hrs durable solid capacitors and Super Durable Inductors, the B660GTN motherboard provides stable power delivery to all its components, enabling long-lasting product lifespan with exceptionally reliable performance.

Furthermore, the B660GTN motherboard contains a TPM_SPI header, a Thunderbolt header and a CPU OPT header focused on providing a feature-rich base for its users.

When it comes to rear I/O, the B660GTN is no exception, engineered with ample USB ports that include USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A and USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, and DISPLAY ports for crisp, crystal-clear image quality, and Realtek ALC1220 7.1-ch Blu-ray Audio technology for an immersive user experience.

To conclude, the B660GTN motherboard packs a great punch for its unbelievable price point and small feature-rich form factor. For gamers, content creators, or casual content consumption, the B660GTN is the best Mini-ITX motherboard of its kind in the market.

Actually starting to look good! Might give Biostar a shot for my next mobo as Gigabyte, Asus and MSI all let me down in one way or another.

Can't find that unbelievable price point tho, let's see if we can trust Biostar once it's available.

The marketing is highly suspect. They claim 9 phase power delivery, yet there are just 6 phases for the socket. Knowing biostar they tend to use cheaper higher resisteance VRM components.

I'll wait for reviews. I'd love for biostar to become the next DFI, but I'm not holding my breath over it.

The vrm seems like 7 + 1 +2 60A , this give better options than the asrock b660m itx/ac : 3 more phases , 2.5gb lan , 2 nvme , pcie 5 , a small review here
b660gtn + 12700f it sure can supply enough power for the 12700f all cores 4.5ghz which is pretty good without touching vol or adjusting anything but the review is purely a noob by using intel stock fan which reaching 100*c then throttle back to base clock and reduce the heat to 60*c , at the end of the video we can see by playing some game at 20-35$ load the cpu reach nearly 75*c. Im in for this mobo the price around 180$ which is fine by me since i dont plant to overclock and with undervolting 12900k can be handle

Looks cool alright, but I feel like optical on the I/O should be obligatory for every miniITX above certain price point. I guess you can get an external USB sound card, but I'd rather have it sit there on the back.

@gasolina did you end up getting the B660GTN? I'm considering pairing it with a i5-12700f or i5-12600k, but worried about the VRMs possibly lacking. That video you posted seems the be the only real test of the board :(

i did order the mobo but it will be available on March 15-18th as much as i watched the vid and other vid like this the mobo 100$ from taobao 120$ from aliexpress
will hold 12900k without any problem at all, from the thailand vid the thing hold mobo back is the stock cooler not the vrm. I can always make my own custom vrm cooler since there are flat heatpipe and DIY stuff from china which i make quite a few things like this for example could get my 9400F cinebench 3 rounds peak 68*c with 30*c room temp . I'm in a middle of long project will update later on at the end of this year or mid next year , ima make some itx into laptop and custom cooling from scratches .here is a small example the dimension of this chassis is 316x220x25mm still a slot for battery + keyboard + touchpad , and for the 13.3 inch screen would be 5mm so a final should be 316x220x30-31mm around 2,1-2,2L .
Oh back to the main point 12700KF + the 660GTN is the sweetest spot imo since the vrm, the pcie 5 and the price also, just lack the type c stuff ( i don't care much about type c just my personal use ) .
