I’m not overclocking with it. 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 not to. What was the best tech product of ? For ages now, boards from different manufacturers but with the same chipset are often withing a percentage point of each other. Not as feature heavy as others but I think that’s a good thing for the target audience.

The bundle is unexciting but that lets EPoX keep the cost down, something we all appreciate.

Anyone with a Epox 8k3a?

Items that are bought by us when a purchase is made, this generally is for highly expensive items, items with a very slow run rate or speciality items. The Northbridge is only passively cooled with no epkx fan which is a bonus. Like before, a small but appreciable difference in performance is what we are looking for.

Write a review Reviews will be active after verification. Moving to the right past that circuit and componentry we see the socket itself.

A quick note about this board and an explanation as to why we haven’t reviewed it as soon as most.

Anyone with a Epox 8k3a? As far as the board itself goes, it’s usual EPoX fare.

Epoc has worked reliably and I don’t recall any problems during installation, setup, or OS install. If an ETA is available it will be displayed on hover. Decent price, kept me updated with progress, well packed and they chucked in some 83ka So all the numbers you’ll see in this review were garnered using the 8k3a Of course you are also free to run your clocks synchronously and indeed this can possibly be advantageous since running asynchrously increases memory latency on a DDR memory subsystem.

A move to MHz memory clock coupled with new DDR memory would 8k3q the platform an overall performance boost. The board enjoys the 3-phase power circuitry to provide stable overclocks. Lastly in 8kk3a look at general performance we have Serious Sam: On a DDR system, matching memory clock to CPU host clock front side bus is ideal and latency can be as low as possible.

Easy setup and stable. As far as overclocking the board went, large front side bus was easy.

We’ve had the board for a little while but we’ve never been able to make the board work 83ka asynchronous mode and detect any performance increase. Performance This is the section that most people will be interested in and rightly so.


Superb customer care and always ready to check things as needed.

I just orderd one of these and a special stepping XP. We’ll have to wait and see with the processors themselves but reliance on a MHz front side bus isn’t helping the platform as a jump to MHz would. What was the best tech product of ?

The KT’s main advantage over KTA besides the little memory controller tweaks is the ability to run the memory clocks asynchronous to the front side bus, in this case with a Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Eoox Aorus aesthetic. A small but measurable increase in performance from the free memory bandwidth that we gain. Logik Ars Praefectus Tribus: Cheap, good expansion and lots of support for the enthusiast in terms of performance and overclocking features are what I expected and that’s exactly what I got.

Speed will increase by multiplier only. Moving down past the passively cooled chip and we encounter very familiar territory. Epo anyone with this board? We’re looking for the same results here.
