Biostar has fashioned a really nice looking package for its maiden socket 2011 board. Amid the crimson background and hot 'TPower' logo, the paperboard is littered with badges galore detailing the different features of the board, such as 3-way SLI and 4-way CrossfireX support, PCIe3, and the support for Sandy Bridge-E processors on LGA 2011 socket.

Opening the box clamshell-style reveals another cardboard container with doors containing the user manual and driver/utility CD and included accessories: a bundle of yellow SATA cables (six in total), SLI and CrossFire bridges, and rear I/O panel cover.

The TPower X79 is securely tucked away under the accessories box, cushioned on all edges with foam placeholders and wrapped in an anti-ESD bag.

I will be interested to see what the support is like down the road. I am wondering what the BIOS updates will look like to be exact. Will they be updating it regularly or skimp. Should be interesting to see.

Then again, most people will buy the 3820 CPU and this would be a great board for that CPU.

For me, i'll stick to the big three, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI.
