Epox 8K7A Motherboard Review

| Motherboards News | Posted: Sep 16, 2001 2:49 am

Mikhailtech has just posted a review of the Epox 8K7A Motherboard for your viewing pleasure. It features the AMD761 chipset and uses DDR Memory. here's a snip:

 

"These dipswitches are used to control the multiplier (assuming that you have your Thunderbird/Duron unlocked). You can set it from 5x to 10.5x. Some people who are used to Abit's soft menu and similar jumperless motherboards might be uncomfortable with this method of changing the multiplier. As for me, it wasn't a big problem at all. Actually, it was very helpful once. See, I had the multiplier at 10.5, and I set the FSB to 150! The computer won't complete posting and hangs when entering the BIOS. In a jumperless mobo, your only solution is to clear the CMOS and start all over again. But all I had to do was lower the multiplier, and in return, I got a lower speed. The computer worked with no problems. Then I went to the BIOS and backed the FSB a little. See my point?"
