Motherboards and 4in1's

| Motherboards News | Posted: Sep 14, 2002 2:43 am

Not much in the mailbox again but t-break has taken a look at the Epox 4SDA5+ SiS648 chipset based motherboard.

Epox has established itself as a reputable producer of performance oriented motherboards that can be tweaked to the max. They're not the kind to get their products out the door immediately- rather, they take their own sweet time in fine tuning their products. Lets find out if this holds true for their latest P4 motherboard based on the SiS 648 chipset- the 4SDA5+

Next along is AMD3D.com as they check out the Asus A7V8X motherboard based on the new VIA KT400 chipset.

Having an unlocked processor has given me the chance to push the FSB beyond specification and really test the RAM performance of the KT400 chipset. I can also see if I can get close to 200 FSB. When running at 200 FSB lets hope that sometime in the near future a 1/6 divider kicks in, as yet the current Asus bios (1006.001) does not support this. I am waiting for a response from Asus on whether this will require a bios update, or hardware change.

Oh and before I go VIA Arena has new VIA 4in1 drivers, ver 4.43, posted for those interested and you can download them directly from here in zip file form.
