4sda+

http://www.epox.com/html/english/pro...d/ep-4sda+.htm

I have a friend who wants a P4, groan, anyway, this looks to be about the best out there. The best chipset, sis 645, and it seems to be one of two boards that have 6x pci, 3x dimm, raid, and oc'ing features. The other one is the soyo http://www.soyo.com.tw/product/p4s-dragon-ultra.htm which has 6 channel onboard sound, 10/100 and usb2.0 on it

but it appears there is no manual for the epox one. As we all know, overclocking is my interest, and I fully intend to overclock this computer.

So epox tech, can you tell me about voltages, bus speeds, dividers, etc, or do I have to wait for the manual to tell me (if so, when will the manual be coming out)

Look around for reviews on sites like amdmb.com, hardocp.com, etc. If they have a review, they'll list the voltages possible .

SHOW YOUR FRIEND THOUSANDS OF BENCHMARKS AND EXPLAIN THINGS TO HIM!! TIE HIM TO A CHAIR OR SOMETHING !

smack your friend on the head with a newspaper then show him a load of benchmarks

if he still insists on throwing money away, take his money, build an athlon system for him and keep the change! if he thinks p4 is the way to go, he probably wont realise its not one

yeah, I haven't seen a review yet, and it doesn't appear to be released.

actually, I'm not too worried if he gets a p4, cause it gives me something to play with that noone has done before

All you need is the P4 sticker to convince him.

He would know pretty quick it's not an intel as the computer would be running to fast!

CPU voltage is adjustable to 2.025v, AGP to 2.2v and VDimm to 3.2v

agp = 2.2v

woah. I might just have to look into this. The soyo only goes up to 1.85vcore as well. At this stage I think the soyo has better features, but the epox will let people overclock more.

Epox Tech, do you know what Vio options there is?


Argh, I can't beleive I am actually finding a P4 appealing. Anyway, Epox Tech, I think you've got a sale here. Do you know when they will be available?

VIO is standard only - DDR and some newer chipsets run from their own 8 leg V.reg at approximatley 2.5v, so I/O wouldn't enhance the chipset voltage I'm afraid - that's why VIO is omitted from so many designs now.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the P4 dosn't make use of dual-plane (split-plane??) power. As in core voltage and i/o voltage do not differ with the P4. If this is the case, which I'm pretty sure it is, there is no need for a VIO power supply on the board. PCI cards can be powered directly off the PSU, and the chipset could(design permitting) be powered off the on-board memory power supply.

The split plane is between 5v and 1.75v (0.18), the 5v being direct and the 1.75v being from the step down of the voltage controller from a direct 3.3v of the PSU - therefore no VIO as you correctly state.
