Epox 4PCA3+ good buy?

are these boards good for mild to heavy O/Cin, and also to setup a few HDD's.

They offer a RAID 0/1 config don't they with all the IDE ports?

thinking of putting a 2.6C in it, how do they O/C?

I run raid 0 with 2 satas and its plenty fast enough for me......

If you want to OC it then I would get a 2.4C instead..I built both the last couple weeks on 4PCA3+ mobos and my 2.4c is currently at 285 fsb stable while it was a struggle to get 250 stable with the 2.6c.....Probably due the to 12X multi on the 2.4 allowing higher fsb....Overall I like the mobos but I do have a voltage issue where the bios does not read the right voltages for the vdimm vagp and vcore and the vdimm will not go above 3.07 (actually measured on the mobo) no matter what you set it to.....
