  1. Think I saw something on hardcor forum or tweaktown, dosn't really surprise me coming from BioStar
  2. tell me more...
  3. Don't remember where I saw it, I for one am just not a fan of BioStar, quit using them 2008 or so, still run into them on upgrade/repair work and not to happy with them
  4. Is the motherboard chipset revision earlier than 'B3' ?

    It is Rev 3.0 i crossed checked in speccy. this board is platform 1155 and it comes with SATA 2 only and USB2.0 only. It is running with Ivy Bridge Processor i3 3210 and 4 gb ddr3 @1333 mhz. Everything is at stock speed.

    Here is the link to it: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=599

    Worst is that if i use dedicated graphics, that is plugging my GT 240 and not using on-board graphics, when the system is idle, i can see the HDD LED (Red) always on with no blinks and after sometime it restarts itself giving me the error:

    Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.

    This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer. If you continue to recieve this message, contact the hardware manufacturer.

    Status: 0xc00000e9

    Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred


    That's how this board has ruined my old hard drive and now i know that it is going to eat my new 4 month old hard drive too.
