OCO have done a review of it.

The colour scheme doesn't wash with me, but I guess these days you have to compete for the chav market as well.

Sad to here, Andy. Bust it out and give it a run. I haven't heard very good things about it. One review I read got a decent overclock, but there is no PCI lock, so it crapped out before it should have. The 945P is not a very good chipset, slower than the 925x/xe. I really wanted the 5LWA+, but cannot find one in the USA.

Maybe that's why it's still under his bed?

Depressing to think at this stage that any maker, especially one like Epox would build a board like thiswith no pci lock. It is just ridiculous seems as though Epox is dropping itself out of the Intel Market.By the time this board was released everyone else was already on the 955X and now the 975x. This is what the old expression, "A day late and a dollar short", was referring to.
This pisses me off cuz I have really enjoyed my Epox boards with the only Exception to that being the 5PDA+. Any where you find an Epox Motherboard at or near the top of the benches in it's class you will more than likely find my name right beside it. But in 2 weeks from this weekend there will be an ASUS 975X board in my room. It will take some time to convert over since I need to replace virtually all the pieces. I am actually hoping that Epox releases something new in the 955 or 975 to stop me from moving. But I won't hold my breath. It has been a great run with Epox and maybe I will team up with them in the future. That just won't happen til they get themselves back out closer to the cutting edge. I'm not so sure they will.

I actually considered getting the 925XE board but that would mean getting new mem and a pci vid card and still using my 540J processor and not being able to move up to even a Cedar Mill. Which looks like a real pleasant surprise of a chip. So that would be kind of pointless The 975X board will run my processor too. I am going to stick this little power house into that mobo and see what it'll do with it. Then over time Move into the Presler then later on this year Mat wants to get a Yonah. We will definately keep my present system as a part of the video rendering team Mat's we will sell to a good friend who lives in the Vancouver to our North. I am just really sad at the though of leaving EPOX. I know it is just hardware and that's that however, I do feel a loyalty the products that have served me so well.
