Biostar TZ77XE4 Intel LGA 1155 Review

Intel Z77 Express Chipset »


I've recently covered quite a few high-level enthusiast-grade products from ASUS, ECS, and Gigabyte, but today, we take a look at someone new to the enthusiast market, none other than Biostar. Biostar has been in the motherboard business for quite some time, but their entry into the enthusiast market is still relatively new, and as such, they've had a few "growing pains", but today they present a completely different look and quite a mature package, one that really suits the "high-end enthusiast" moniker, but at the same time it still rings true with Biostar's company mantra of providing top-level, high quality products that do not break the bank while doing so.
