Biostar this week rolled out its new TPOWER X79 motherboard, which is apparently "the most powerful motherboard on the planet" (Biostar's words, not ours). Part of the reason Biostar is marketing its motherboard as such is due to its "extreme overclocking" capabilities, a notion that might have seemed silly coming from Biostar a few short years ago when the focus was primarily on budget boards, but not so much after the company racked up several overclocking records.

Getting down to the nitty-gritty, the new TPOWER X79 boasts a 9-phase power design, 100 percent solid capacitors, a 2-ounce copper PCB, 8-layer PCB, dual 8-pin EPS connectors, USB 3.0 support, four DDR3 memory slots with support for up to 32GB of DDR3-2400 (OC) memory, three PCI-E x16 3.0 slots, two PCI-E x1 2.0 slots, a single legacy PCI slot, four SATA 6Gbps ports, three SATA 3Gbps ports, a single eSATA 3Gbps connectors, support for RAID 0/1/5/10, AMD 4-way CrossFireX and Nvidia 3-way SLI support, and a whole bunch of other odds and ends.

There's also a Debug LED indicating lamp, buttons for booting, and a clear CMOS button, all of which are handy for hardcore overclocking and testing.

Spiffy! I really don't have any experience with biostar. I honestly had no idea they were starting to make performance boards, let see a review of this bad boy!

Now you're just mashing it!

I agree,...A review is in order if you have the board on hand.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
