However with regular air coolers the socket rotation shouldn’t be an issue. We’re looking for the same results here. Again, predictably, we get what we expected. Please enter the text in the following text field. Fri Jun 07, 5: Thumbs up to EPoX for that connector placement.

Decent price, kept me updated with progress, well packed and they chucked in some sweeties! Multipliers can be lowered and given a proper process shrink, the CPU has some headroom left in it for a while before Hammer hits. We’ll need to make use of other benchmarks to highlight the performance advantage that occurs. Lastly in our look at general performance we have Serious Sam: Superb customer care and always ready to check things as needed.
Onto Aquamark, our 8kk3a DirectX 8. It’s one of the most stable boards I’ve yet seen, something I maybe couldn’t say about EPoX in the past. Performance as we’ve seen is excellent with only the worries about overall system bandwidth which aren’t EPoX’s fault.
Stock CPU voltage 1. The Northbridge is only passively cooled with no noisy fan which is a bonus. Also, our asynchrous runs show the little increase we need to validate the mode.
Excellent performance all round from the board, no question. It has worked reliably and I don’t recall any problems during installation, setup, or OS install. AC’97 audio via the southbridge is also supported however I’m a fan of proper hardware solutions since I’ve found VIA southbridge provided solutions tend to degrade under high system load whereas a dedicated solution tends 8k3 to. Not a blue screen throughout testing, no instability unless at the very ragged edge and pushing it to the extreme.
I have been quite pleased with mine. Not as feature heavy as others but I think that’s a good thing for the target audience. Not sure if I will. In the following graph, all that is changed is the memory clock via a 8m3a.
Apart from that, the board is quite fully featured.
The board overclocks like a champion, that’s all there is to it. The graph just shows the CPU is working properly. The bundle is unexciting but that lets EPoX keep the cost down, something we all appreciate. We’re looking for the same results here. I have not experimented with overclocking, but the BIOS is quite friendly to it. After that, memory clock must match host clock. Speed will increase by multiplier only.
I’m guessing the P80P module is expensive and it doesn’t appear on the regular 8K3A for cost reasons. A notch below the physical limits of the rest of the system and things were outstandingly stable, something EPoX have worked hard on. KT and in future, KT will give the system some more memory bandwidth as processor speed marches on but is it enough?
