BIOSTAR TP67XE Intel LGA 1155 Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review

BIOSTAR products don't come into the Legit Reviews test lab very often, when they do, they don't disappoint. Or at least they haven't yet. Today we have the chance to take a look at the new TP67XE from BIOSTAR. This particular board is based on the Intel P67 series chipset. Featuring support for Crossfire and SLI, it promises to be a very full featured board. It may be full featured but it's not priced like it! How will it perform against the other Intel P67 boards we have looked at? Read on to find out!

BIOSTAR isn't one of the big names in motherboards today, frankly that's a shame. Throughout our testing today, the BIOSTAR TP67XE motherboard has kept me happy. It may not have been top performing board across all of our tests today. It did however, do a great job overall. What did impressed me the most was the overclocking ability of the BIOSTAR TP67XE. As we saw on the overclocking page we were able to overclock our Intel Core i5 2500K to 5GHz on this motherboard!

What is the CIR Consumer Infrared header used for? I don't see this feature on ASUS/Gigabyte, so I'm also wondering what their alternatives are?

Thanks,
Jake

It's a port so you can connect an Infared Reciever to the motherboard, and control it with a remote. So if you wanted to use this board in a machine you're doing presentations with, you won't have to buy an add-on card for it, you just plug the CIR Reciever into the header and use your remote.
