Expert reviews and ratings


All in all, we were impressed with the TA890FXE's performance. Error margins permitted, the motherboard performs near enough on par with our previously tested 890GX/890FX motherboards, including the ASRock 890GX Extreme3 that we pitched it against...

Although not as flexible in regard to future upgrades as others we tested, the TA890FXE should satisfy cost-conscious consumers looking for a good-performing, no-nonsense platform for their next...

The BioStar TA890FXE seems to be a motherboard from 3 years ago when using its BIOS. It is not user friendly at all. It would not pass our stock clock stability tests using a 1090T processor and solid Corsair memories. It is not a great overclocker....

It is said that system builders like "no-frills" motherboards on top-class chipsets, because this way they get a chance to improve PC specifications for a low price. Well, the same can be said about users who build their PCs on their own. Not a lot...

I suggest that we start with the mainboards that got the lowest scores in our today’s test session. ASRock 890FX Deluxe3 and Biostar TA890FXE seem to be out of place in this roundup. It is not only because they failed to overclock our test processor to...

The TA890FXE is also the cheapest board in today’s roundup at $140, making it the perfect choice for budget overclockers who don’t care about its lack of USB 3.0...

Given the TA890FXE’s low-cost performance theme, its only true disappointment is a scarcity of three-pin fan connectors. Most performance cases have more than two fans, and we often prefer to address these with a motherboard’s automatic...

Bedenkt man, dass das TA890FXE vor allem mit seinem niedrigen Preis punkten will, ist die einzige wirkliche Enttäuschung die geringe Zahl an 3-Pin-Lüfteranschlüssen. Die meisten Gehäuse für den gehobenen Anspruch besitzen mehr als zwei Lüfter. Am...
