We put the EPoX MF570 SLI against our MSI K9N SLI Platinum based on the same chipset just to see what is available from this board.


The EPoX board was running at default clock speeds and overclocked speeds. The OC speed was 2100MHz (350MHz FSB x 6) and the MSI board OC was 2112MHz (352MHz FSB x 6).


Let's conitnue on and see how the EPoX board is able to perform against the MSI board that we have already established as a solid product.

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.



EPoX at stock speed is able to just outscore the MSI board, quite possibly due to a few extra tweaks to its BIOS and memory settings. At overclocked speeds the MSI is just in front but only just.
