I have been a fan of EPoX for some time. Their ability to make motherboards that are stable, reliable and very overclocker friendly is a long standing tradition. But I can say without reservation that the Soltek SL-75MRN-L motherboard tested today beats it hands down.
The reliability of this motherboard is excellent and the ability to overclock is superb. With features ranging from built in NIC capabilities, onboard stereo sound and an embedded GeForce4MX video controller, there is truly something for everyone. Not only that, but they all work at a level that does not greatly intrude on the overall performance levels of the motherboard itself.
I was a bit disappointed with the omission of the four holes around the socket, but considering the performance and features available, this isn't a huge loss. It is sad, though, that Soltek didn't commit to the enthusiasts that have paid out big bucks for quality cooling.
As far as price is concerned, the 75MRN-L has an estimated street price of US$110. This puts it in line with other motherboards currently available, so is not out of line at all.
Bottom line...If you happen to be looking for a new AMD variety of motherboard, the nForce2 chipset is without doubt the chipset of choice. Add to this the excellent quality and feature set of the Soltek SL-75MRN-L motherboard and you have a sure winner for any enthusiast. Price, performance and overclockability make this board a top contender for your hard-earned money.
Dual channel DDR support
