It is time to look at the actual motherboard. This is a smaller motherboard than we are used to, so some things will get pressed into tight spaces or may not even be put on the motherboard.
Around the CPU socket, it gets petite packed. Some of the bigger aftermarket coolers will have problems with this motherboard. I would suggest sticking with the stock cooler, or a smaller aftermarket cooler with this motherboard.
After that we contain four DDR2 slots; this is rare in mATX motherboards. Typically we find only two slots for RAM on mATX motherboards, as two slots are generally sufficient for normal users and it saves room for other components. We find the 24-pin PSU connector, the floppy and HDD connectors up here too.
Moving down we find four SATA ports. It is not many, as you would find on an ATX motherboard, but it should perform well for what you want. Surprisingly, we have power and reset buttons. They are really useful when running your motherboard out of the case, but for this board I feel they are really not required.
We contain two PCI slots, a PCI-Express, and a 16x PCI Express slot for graphics cards. For gamers like me, this makes it probable to make a semi-portable computer with a high end graphics card in it.
The back is loaded with ports: two PS2 ports, S-Video, HDMI, VGA, DVI, four USB ports, RJ-45, and audio jacks.
With a lower power draw, Biostar can get away with a 4 pin connector for the ATX power connector in its place of your typical 8 pin connector. Nobody of the components near the CPU is heat-sinked. This could become an problem if things heat up and you would like to over-clock.
