Packaging and Overview
The motherboard box and packaging are quite solid and get the job done.
The accessory package includes four SATA6Gb/s cables, IO shield, manual, and driver DVD.
Biostar offers just two fan headers; they are circled in red and offer PWM control over 4-pin fans. PWM fans can be controlled through the UEFI or Windows. Biostar's black and gray color theme has won them many fans over the past few years, including me. I am a big fan of the RGB LEDs built into the VRM heat sinks. The back of the motherboard has some ICs, but also your M.2 slot.
The rear IO panel features PS/2 keyboard, four USB 3.0 ports, USB 3.1 type-A, USB 3.1 type-C, DVI, HDMI, Gbit LAN, and 7.1 gold-plated audio outputs with S/PDIF out.
A single 32Gb/s M.2 slot sits on the rear of the PCB and allows users to use the latest NVMe drives for significantly faster performance. We also find a USB 3.0 header, two SATA6Gb/s ports, and front panel ports at the edge of the motherboard. The clear CMOS header is right behind the USB 3.0 internal header.
Two more SATA ports can be found above the x16 slot. Two RGB LED 5050 headers are located at the top of the motherboard above the CPU socket.
The CPU VRM uses a single 4-pin CPU power plug, and its heat sink is screwed into the motherboard. The audio header is located right behind the audio jacks. Surprisingly, the heat sinks and shields are screwed onto the motherboard.
