This gives the board a more well rounded feature set for a mainstream board and be able to keep costs to a reasonable level without additional third party controllers. The details of how the Biostar TForce P Deluxe motherboard test system was configured for benchmarking, including the specific hardware, software drivers, operating system and benchmark versions are indicated below. Thus far, we’ve noted that many new Core 2 Duo motherboards have issues supporting certain types of DDR memory and are sometimes plagued by compatibility issues, but not so with the TForce P Deluxe. In the DRAM configuration menu you’ll find the memory timing options. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. The Intel ICH8R Southbridge will produce a bit of heat on its own, but is also passively cooled with a simple heatsink.

If anything, Biostar has to work on their layout. The chargers fit the major types of cellphones on the market, but as they came with scant documentation I think most people would be hesitant to actually use tvorce. Basic Performance The performance of the board was at times in the upper segment of our roundup and at others near the bottom when excluding the ASRock value board.

We still believe overall that this board is a great value at this time and offers what appears to be the best blend of performance and price in our roundup. Unfortunately, we do not know what o965 true limit of this board will be until we see further BIOS optimizations and improvements in the memory voltages. The board is either highly optimized or the reported CAS 3 anomaly at DDR has made up for any inadequacies to put its tfodce at its peak.


The floppy drive connector is also located at the opposite end of the board and for those still using this type of drive p9655 will create a cabling issue. As usual before the motherboard testing got underway, the memory was first set to DDR so it would not hold the motherboard back.

Beginners Guides Cases and Access. The TForce Tfocre Deluxe looks like a simple motherboard at a glance, but most of its core components do not have an ideal layout, which may cause cable and air flow problems if you’re not careful enough. Log in Don’t have an account? This is a great feature when you’re first setting up the PC and trouble shooting during overclocking.

BioStar TForce P Deluxe PCSTATS Review – Overclocking the TForce P Deluxe Motherboard

The board also surprised us with its innate chipset cooling performance. This board did not require a BIOS of the day or week to work with various Conroe steppings or to address memory performance and stability issues.

Looking at their latest retail BIOS, Biostar indicated that they’re working on improving overclocking bandwidth, but at its present state, we could only achieve a maximum MHz overclock even with a Core 2 Duo E – dampening its appeal for a budget enthusiast motherboard.

While the board cannot overclock as well as say the Gigabyte GAP-DS3, it isn’t too shabby either and can hold its own against its competition in every other category. In the DRAM configuration menu you’ll find the memory timing options.

The head would be great for use with VOIP, or other conferencing technologies. The TForce P Deluxe uses a passive heatsink here, which is nice because it does not generate any noise. Increasing the CPU voltage to 1. Starting at MHz the motherboard frequency was increased in MHz intervals, yes I was a bit impatient. Having plenty of USB ports is great, but if they’re all via motherboard headers it kind of defeats the purpose.


Also included with the Biostar TForce P Deluxe motherboard was a headset and mic, and an assortment of what appear to be Cellphone chargers that operate off of USB power.

Bisotar this overclocking was done without having to increase either the northbridge or southbridge voltages, what we need is a MHz processor to see this motherboard really fly. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

However, we were proved quite wrong. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. CPU voltage goes as high as 1.

About Us Employment Privacy Policy. We recently got an Intel Core 2 Duo E processor for testing and you can bet we were interested to see how fast the Biostar TForce P Deluxe motherboard would go with this new processor. Privacy policy and Terms of Use.

Before starting to overclock, the memory was set to run in DDR MHz mode, this way it will not limit the motherboard’s top speed.
