The orange slots are for PCI Express connectors (2x) PCI Express x1, one PCI Express x16, the lime green slots are for standard 32-bit PCI devices. The white slot at the far left is designed for a DVI-I daughter card which is not supplied.

Because there's no Southbridge on the Biostar 8200, the four USB headers are where you'd usually find the SATA ports. This could make cabling a little messy.

The Biostar TF8200 A2+ has four 240-pin DDR2 memory DIMM slots which accommodate 8GB of DDR-2 1066/800/667/533 RAM. Populate the DIMM slots of the same colour first, for dual channel memory. To the left of the DIMM slots is the main 24 pin ATX power connector.

The simple heat pipe design used on the Biostar TF8200 A2+ is designed to take advantage of active CPU cooling.

Physical power and reset buttons are a welcome sight on a budget motherboard, and make setting the board up without installing it into a system an easy task.

Up next PCSTATS tries its hand overclocking the Biostar TF8200 A2+ motherboard, and then it's onto the benchmarks.
