image001It’s rare to see low end B series motherboards equipped with enthusiast-oriented features but BIOSTAR is bringing customizable lighting to the new BIOSTAR RACING B150GT5 motherboard which features customizable lighting on its heatsinks and PCB.

All those lighting features will be controlled via the Vivid LED DJ software which works with both onboard LEDs and external LED strips connected directly on the board via the 5050 LED Fun  feature of the BIOSTAR RACING series. LED strips using compatible 5050 headers can connect directly with BIOSTAR RACING series motherboards for tons of DIY lighting possibilities.

The B150 GT5 isn’t all show and no go though. It features 7 phase CPU power delivery, 100% solid caps throughout the board, four DDR4 DIMM slots, 7.1ch Blu-ray Audio w/ Double Hi-Fi, 4 x SATA 6Gb/s, 1 x SATA Express  16Gb/s,  6USB3.0  (2+4) and 6USB 2.0 (4+2). A rather unique feature in this price range is dual BIOS, but I don’t think dual BIOS is necessary in a non-overclockable motherboard.


Pokdepinion: This looks like a good affordable motherboard, priced at only USD 94.9 (approx. RM 417.09) with nice lighting features. I guess enthusiasts on a budget can look forward to using this motherboard in their show rigs to stand out from the crowd.
