8RDA+ crippled EPox board??

I have enjoyed several EPoX boards in a row now and really liked them all.
Nforce2 chipset made me curious and I aimed at EPoX 8RDA+, of course

Now...since I heard some rumors I though this place would be the right to get the facts.

Is this true about 8RDA+:
1. FSB limited to 200?
2. Vcore max 2.0?
3. Vmem max 2.9
4. Hmmm...guess I skip that question since it´s not going to be answered anyway

I have been spolied last years with EPoX brilliant voltage options and high fsb settings, is this going to change with the release of 8RDA+??

ET, Holst?

This post is just designed to irritate us.

And Vcore is 2.2, maybee you should pay more attention before you cryticise.

Please lock the thread mods.

This post is NOT designed to irritate anyone??

Is it possible to get information about a board before I buy it or do I have to be a Guinea Pig?
If anyone feels irritated about this thread, I am sorry.

Thanks for the information about Vcore, I need high voltages in my next board.

Mr Reinfors,

I am sure many will be more than happy with this board. It is a case of suck it and see - and I guarantee this candy tastes good.

I don't think anyone will be able to get more information about this board in this forum...

Let's wait for the reviews, to finally find out about those questions.... My biggests concerns are for FSB limit and the skipped question 4... (Probably they will include that word in the censure configuration of the forum.... :-D)

Most of my questions concerning the Nvidia chipset have been answered elsewhere.

Now I have to wait to see how EpoX has done building their board around this chipset. One hopes that with EpoX's tradition of being OC friendly I won't be dissapointed.

My major concerns that have yet to be addressed at this point are adjustment of the multipliers and the available voltages.

I hope the board comes soon, we're on tinterhooks waiting like this. I'm sure EpoX will sell truckloads of them.

"I don't think anyone will be able to get more information about this board in this forum..."

Given the great consistency with which reviews have been wrong of late, I'd just spend the time reading the 16 page post on the 8RDA+

I know that you guys have to keep a few things under your hat. But, people are going crazy in anticipation of this "second coming."

I think that a lot of the questions that are giving people "tooth aches" are legitimate.

I wish that epox would just release the damn thing for review. Then everybody can start *****in' about why it's not available yet.

I really hope so, I was hoping this board would suite my needs.
I will wait until Anandtechs review is published before I order it though.
