All the capacitors are well clear of the socket allowing for super large heatsinks to be installed. Site design and front-end production by mike kane. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Although I know there are people out there somewhere that have an AMR device probably a modem in their system, I have yet to meet or talk directly to anyone that does. Designed for the LANer, or if you have to transport your PC alot, this little white clip prevents the video card from being bumped out.

We tried multiple cards to no avail. USB – 2 standard rear connectors with 2 more headers on the board for a total of 6 possible. Judging from the board’s layout and design, it appears to me that EPoX has been listening to the DIY do it yourself builder and has converted that feedback into this board.
The KT has certainly taken a turn for the better over the last couple of months, but we wanted to see if EPoX could keep their track record of late up to par.

Located to the rear of the board’s DIMM memory slots, toward the top corner of the board, are some capacitors that are mounted near the corner. Actually, it is the cleanest that I have ever seen.

Another point I did want to mention about the board’s physical properties is something that I’ve noticed lately with different boards and how they mount, or sit, in 8jha small epoxx medium cases. We noticed no decrease in stability because of it.
The utilization of V-Link is an important step up for computer motherboards. Another positive note for the board, and for overclockers, is the use of active cooling on the North Bridge and a 3-phase power supply for the higher speed processor’s greater load.
But will this affect the stability and overclockability. This situation is not present only with this motherboard, I’ve seen it now on about 3 different models all DDR boards from different manufacturers. You won’t find any CNR slots on this board which is a welcome change from the unusable CNR slots we’ve become accustomed to seeing on motherboards.
Every other operation or function is controlled through the 8kua, including all of the board’s overclocking features, which we will get to in more detail shortly. One of the reasons behind the super clean layout is Epox’s great ingenuity of placing the voltage regulators on the back side of the motherboard, thus reducing clutter around the top.
Instead, what is provided here is the added PCI slot for a total of 6 on the board.

This information will also give you something to look for if you are considering a new case for your PC. Subscribe to our Newsletter. The board is very high performing and was the only one out of the three to actually match the performance of the KTA reference board we looked at almost two months ago.
This is only an issue for those of you with many USB peripherals, which isn’t too uncommon these days. It appears now that the KT based motherboards are getting ready to step up to the call and start going head to head with the other DDR based solutions out on the market today.
This should provide a decent upgrade path for future considerations. Although the chipset was introduced to the public last year, the first KT boards seemed to arrive with different issues relating to system stability, and most 8kkha the boards received a less than warm welcome from the hardware testing community.

We hypothesized that this could be a problem of delivering sufficient power to the AGP slot for the higher clocked Ti however once Windows was properly installed, the Ti worked just fine. Those voltage regulators on the back didn’t hinder overclocking. If the board stops on a certain code, you can look it epoc in your manual and find out exactly what the motherboard is telling you is not working.
The layout around the Socket A is very, very clean.
