Epox KT333 board review (8K3A+)

It's the 8K3A+!

VERY slow server, but worth the wait

I'm too tired to add comments, but I'll do so soon............

Linking this forum in support is a fantastic idea.

Nice new site EPox Tech...very fast even on my 56k

Can you give us any inside info on the kryo2 ?

Back to the 8K3A+ ... it dosent seem to much better than the 8kha+ as far as speed is concerned....

But ive yet to see anybody test any KT333 boards at 166 syncronous bus speed.

Running the memory at 166 and the CPU at 133 seems to offer only a small advantage.
From my own experience there was a significant advantage going from 133,133 to 166,166.

Hopefully one of the alied sites can get hold of a board and do a propper overclocking review and see how far you can push the boards FSB.

I would have to agree with Holst's comments above.

Some comparisons with an overclocked k266a and k333 running 166fsb memory and cpu would really help, so just waiting for a straight head to head.

For me personally as I've already got a stable 2.2vcore with the 8kha+ and i don't need raid, i would need to see some great improvements from the old lady before ditching her..

who knows the CD/CE solution?

Will Epox use CE for the official (retail) boards or CD like all (2) tests?
And what is with northbridge fan? Is it true because a heatsink is enough (sound and fan problems) and I hoped for a "normal" headsink like pcis.
