I don't know about you guys, but if there really is no pci lock, then I think that many of you who purchased the board got a raw deal--the ones who were expecting the lock.

Technically, epox hasn't lied, but by not being open with the truth and/or hiding behind NDA's, they are not acting professionally at all.

I mean, at least stand up for your product! Just come right out and say it doesn't have a pci lock, or that you're going to release a bios to fix it.

I have had my eye on this board, but because I don't trust any of these companies anymore, I've been waiting for hard evidence verified by many, many sources.

Businesses today are like politicians--they lie, twist the truth and do whatever it takes to win your vote--I mean, make a sale...

Hopefully, there really is a pci lock right now, and we can all go on thinking that epox is still a stand-up company. Until we know for sure, simply don't buy the board--unless you have money to burn, of course.

Welcome to AOA, joikd!

Please pardon my huge SNIP of your original post. I wish to accentuate the larger issue.

I too yearn for the halcyon days of yesteryear. Alas, they may be gone for evermore. I think it's fair to posit that government, at least in the US, is run by business. By the business, of the business and for the business leaves some out in the cold. Do the "little people" matter? Not in many board rooms. Nor on Capital Hill, with very few exceptions.

This isn't a recent development. The brass knuckles aren't hidden anymore, and the fangs are now proudly displayed.
IMHO, for what it's worth.

You mean, politicians are like businesses today?
