Biostar TH67XE Micro ATX HTPC Motherboard

With the release of the Intel Sandy Bridge getting close day by day, the motherboard manufacturers are also producing more and more options for the potential consumers.
Biostar has released a new board based on Intel’s H67-Express Sandy Bridge chipset and supports their IGP platform (integrated graphics processor) using socket LGA1155 Intel Core processors, the Biostar TH67XE.

This motherboard comes in a microATX form factor and sports the Intel 2nd generation Core i7 and Core i5 processors, 4-DIMM DDR3-1333/1066 up to 16G maximum capacity, USB 3.0 / SATA3 6Gbps, Realtek ALC892 8-Channel HD Audio and a 6+1 Phases Power Design.
The MicroATX form factor board measures 24.4 cm x 24.4 cm ( W x L ) and comes with 100% X.D.C solid capacitor sporting 95Watt TDP along with Biostar overclocking utilities.
The board also features on-board Power and Reset buttons, making it well suited for open-platform benching.
Biostar hasn’t revealed the price for the upcoming motherboards but since it is a H67 chipset board and a MicroATX form factor, it won’t cost a fortune.
