It is one amazing looking motherboard put together with good quality hardware that supports the latest 6th gen Intel processors and DDR4 RAM’s and faster storage. Tagged with the ‘Racing series’ from Biostar, this platform is built to impress enthusiast gamers.
This motherboard looks impressive with what Biostar calls its ‘Super 5’ design concept. It has the carbon fiber sporty design with the shiny black color panel and elegantly designed various ports. The build quality is superior and it can withstand some rough usage too (though not intended for the same). It has good protection against outside climate, moisture, and electromagnetic discharge which again adds to our trust with the build quality of this motherboard.
Biostar's take on the Racing B150GT5: Future! - RACING B170GT5
- Support for 6th Gen Intel Core Processors
- Intel B150 single chip architecture
- Support 4-DIMM DDR4-2133/ 1866 up to 64G maximum capacity
- BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Technology inside
- Support USB 3.0
- Support SATA Express(16Gb/s)
The BIOSTAR RACING B150GT5 features support the latest Intel 6th-generation Core processors featuring the Intel B150 chipset. The board supports up to four DDR4 memory modules.
The RACING B150GT5 was built from the start as a mainstream board, for budget-conscious people which usually also go for locked processors and are not interested to overclock their machine. We did really enjoy the fresh new look of the RACING series, with the checkered flag on the PCB surface but also the addition of the LEDs on both PCB & PWM heatsink. For added value BIOSTAR does also include an extra LED strip which must be connected to the dedicated header. BIOSTAR has also thought of people which want to keep some of their older expansion cards so no less than three PCI slots are also available.

It has PCI-E 3.0 ports which have twice the bandwidth of PCI-E 2.0 ports. For storage purpose, it has 4 x SATA at 6Gb/s and 1 x SATA Express at 16Gb/s and for expansion purpose it has 2 x PCI-E x16, 1 x PCI-E x1 and 3 x PCI ports. Therefore, this motherboard offers the wide range of connectivity ports with the high bandwidth which is very useful when coupled with latest performance PCI-E SSDs and high-end graphics cards. It has support for DirectX 12 therefore, you can build a good high-end gaming rig but there is no support for two-way SLI.
The Biostar B150-GT5 has 6 USB 3.0 ports, 6 USB 2.0 ports, and display ports like DVI-D, HDMI, and VGA. The HDMI port that can support up to 4K resolution of 4096 x 2160 @24Hz and the VGA port can support full HD 1080P resolution up to 1920 x 1200 @60Hz.
There are also two on board switches to toggle BIOS & LN2, both of which have good build quality and offer solid clicking sound when toggled.
The LAN i.e. Ethernet port is Intel i219V and can support data transfer speeds of up to 1000 MBPS. The rear panel has audio ports which come with high quality ‘Non-Polarized Electrolysis Electric audio capacitors’ for each audio channel circuit. The customized audio capacitors deliver low noise, low distortion, and wide bandwidth to achieve the highest sound resolution and sound expansion. Therefore, you can rest assured that you will get the best quality audio output from this motherboard.
