Nevertheless, every gardener knows how important it is to check the condition of trees after the cold season.

Spring is a time for the biggest clean-up in the garden. It is a time to clean out old leaves, withered last year's plants, worn-out props and covers, and other garbage left over from fall and winter.

So we too shall have a look at how the winter has affected our "nurslings" - motherboard manufacturers. We need not worry about the condition of the Biostar TA690G AM2 Ver. 5.x five: The motherboard market is growing in terms of absolute volume. Since Gigabyte has remained an independent company, there is no reason to fear monopolization and unfair competition in the near future. And what of the other companies, figuratively speaking, the small bushes and shrubbery", turned to producing Mini-ITX and other built-in industrial grade boards?

It seems so, except for a couple of companies, more specifically: Perhaps, a few years ago hardly anyone could have predicted that the list of companies Biostar TA690G AM2 Ver. 5.x full-size PC motherboards would be limited to these. However, the former companies are now basically selling reference boards under their brand and often charge too much for them. The products of the latter companies are hard to find to be sure, they have to be ordered in advance.


That is why it wouldn't be stretching the truth to disregard them altogether. Motherboards under Intel and Sapphire brands are produced, for obvious reasons, using only "select" chipsets that are geared towards system integrators and don't make a difference in retail.

The remaining four are not uniform either. The respectable EPoX brand will not be left without orders for a while. The same is true for Jetway, which is oriented towards low-end products. It can produce on demand a batch or two of boards for Biostar TA690G AM2 Ver. 5.x interested. That allows it to occupy a small and low-income, but stable position on the market. In contrast, abit's position is still unstable.

It is hard to tell whether the company will grow or "wither" by the next season there is no other choice, it seems. On the other hand, Biostar is not about to give up its ground as a global supplier of motherboards. It is steadily increasing production, and there are reasons for reserved optimism in this case.

Considering that in order to buy an expensive motherboard based on an elite chipset consumer is more likely to turn to the aforementioned grandees, models based on low-end discrete chipsets seem to be most interesting. For example, Biostar TForce Models based on high-end integrated chipsets also deserve attention, because they are becoming more appealing as a basis for the average household PCs. This article specifically Biostar TA690G AM2 Ver. 5.x such a model. Board's layout is almost perfect, which has already become a good tradition for Mini-ATX models. Of the peripheral interfaces only the FireWire is missing.

Biostar TA690G AM2 Ver. 5.x On the other hand, one can increase the number of USB ports to the maximum number supported by the chipset - After the board is installed into the chassis all sockets and jumpers are still easily accessible. Only the northbridge heatsink, which resides near the processor socket, may in theory obstruct the installation of a non-standard CPU cooler. While this review was still being prepared Biostar has released an updated 5. It is the one that is actually going to be manufactured.

The height of the northbridge heatsink for the new version has been reduced Biostar TA690G AM2 Ver. 5.x that there is no way it can conflict with any processor cooler whatsoever. AMD G chipset as we have already mentioned is one of the most efficient of the modern models with integrated graphics. That is why the smaller heatsink still copes with its job. However, due to the location of the chipset close to the CPU, it is preferable to use Energy Efficient processor models in order to get a system with maximum reliability and minimal noise level.

Such processors are widely available. Otherwise, you should use a massive cooler, which is not always economically justified. In other words, don't try Biostar TA690G AM2 Ver. 5.x artificially reduce rotation rate of the standard CPU cooler fan. High CPU temperature leads to increased chipset temperature, which eventually may adversely affect the term of stable operation although it is just a theoretical remark.
