970 Chipset. Worked with AMD FX6300 straight out of the box. 8GB Integral DDR3 1333 RAM and HD7850 graphics card work with no problems. Can now play all games on high/max settings. Everything runs cool.
Motherboard base was slightly warped so had to be a bit creative with the stand-offs to get the I/O plate to line up. Have read that other named brands can also have this issue.

Lancashire GB
Simple to install, compatible with socket AM2 coolers, lots of sata ports, covered with heat sinks, 2x PCI-x V2.0 sockets.
(Very) slight hum on stereo output when no sound is being output.

RAM must be installed in sockets A2 and B2 (not A1 and B1) if you are using both channels or you'll get random crashes. The manual says it won't boot in this configuration, but it will and just error out later.

For the price you can't go wrong in buying this board.I have never brought a biostar before,i am so glad I did.Easy setup in bois just had to change ddr ram speed from auto to 1866.
I also brought 8GB Ballistix Tracer DDR3-1866
FX8320 8 CORE @4GHz.The system runs sweet just need to buy an after market cooler so I can push those CPU speeds up.
Nothing I can think of just changing the ram speed from default to 1866 and updating the bois that's it.
