Biostar Hi-Fi Z77X Motherboard Review

Rating: 9.0.

Today we are going to take a look at the Biostar Hi-Fi Z77X which is the latest model in their range based on this chipset.  We were recently very impressed by the Biostar Hi-Fi A85W motherboard which offered a good balance between style, performance and features, while remaining widely affordable.

It’s clear that Biostar are trying hard to compete with the top motherboard manufacturers as we’ve seen a number of high-end models for them over the past year.  We were especially impressed with the Biostar TZ77XE4 that we looked at a few months back when the Ivy Bridge platform launched.

As part of Biostar’s ‘Hi-Fi‘ range, this model features enhanced onboard audio.  This will help it compete in the market and may swing those enthusiasts who aren’t planning to use a dedicated sound card with their system.

We will be testing the motherboard with an Intel Core i7-3770K in this review, both at stock speeds and when overclocked.

    Excellent board and good review. sold it well I think. id like to hear this with my Sennheiser HD800’s.

  • I am actually using the A85W board from biostar that already has good audio quality. Can anybody tell if it is comparable? I think there is not much space to improve in here!
