EPoX 8K5A3+ Motherboard Review - Conclusion

Though the KT333 chipset isn't brand new, there are a couple of companies out there that have been adding some spice to an already proven chipset. To see just what I mean, come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he takes a look at the EPoX 8K5A3+ Motherboard. It uses the KT333 chipset and adds in some very sweet capabilities that will make your mouth water!

Conclusion

 

EPoX has once again, as they have done in the past, put together an ultimate AMD motherboard. Just about every board, even the 7KXA, that is based for AMD that comes from the EPoX shelf has offered a great deal of performance for a small cash price.

 

The 8K5A3+ overclocking was remarkable. Supporting up to 2.0v on the CPU VCore adds the overclocking arena for EPoX, allowing for ultra cooling rigs to be installed and the CPU pushed well beyond the limits of sanity. Performance even without overclocking is without a doubt one of the best of the KT333 arena, and the inclusion of the VT9235 Southbridge just adds more pleasure to the works

 

- Pros

 

Fast

 

Stable as a rock

 

Ultra overclocking options

 

Quad Channel RAID

 

- Cons

 

Placement of the floppy connector could do with some more thought.

 

Active cooling for KT333 Northbridge could be better
