EPoX Motherboard Question

Can someone tell me the difference between an 8k5a and other EPoX 8k series motherboards?

check out http://www.epox.org/products/mainboards/
and look at the 8K9A models and 8K5A models

8K9A's main difference is VIA KT400 where as 8K5A models are VIA KT333

If you look at each page for each mobo you will see the slight differences with each model

I'm not sure if this is where your going, but...
There is a 'value' based version of each line.
8K3Ae
8k5A
8K9A

All of these might be described as geared toward OEM. They have overclocking capabilities, but are priced lower, and may be somewhat limited in their overclocking potential. At least on paper, they appear to be as good as their bigger siblings. I don't own any.. my opinions are based solely on what I've been told.

A friend asked me to find him BIOS for his 8k5a, I figured it was a pre-8k5a2 or one step down. I found some BIOS on the Asian EPoX site, just curious as to what the difference is.
