Question FIC AN19E and Epox 8K9A same board?

Hi guys, saw this posted over on ambmd.com forums and thought I'd ask here.

the AN19E and epox 8K9A boards look identical, same layout, features colour component placement etc etc.

Are they the same board, is one doing OEM for the other?

The Epox isnt available here in New Zealand, as the usual Epox distributor is bring in the FIC instead....bit suspicious

any ideas appreciated

I doubt it as epox board are pretty inexpensive to begin with. However try looking at some of the Aussie online store alot of them have epox......maybe one of them will ship to NZ

quite possibly they are made in the same manufacturing plant!!!

:-)

but I dont know for sure....I was just guessing. The real differences may be in the bios and in the implemantation of features.

I've compared my bios (only the 8K9A) to the pictures of the AN19E's BIOS and they nearly identical, I'd bet they'd be the exact if you compared the BIOS of an 8K9A2 with the FIC.

Yep, I've seen the boards too and they look identical.
If they are the same board, as I think, then congratz to FIC for choosing a very good mobo to sell as their own, because they could have never made such a good themselves.

Thanks for the feedback guys, Im getting in one of the FIC boards to play with, I'll try flashing it with the Epox BIOS and see what happens


If it dies I just send it back as DOA, gotta love lenient distributors
