The motherboard market has come to a standstill on the threshold of models based on the new line of Intel chipsets. Indeed, the entire computer world is waiting for the appearance of Intel Core 2 processors in desktops. So during this lull we'll publish reviews of old motherboards that we missed. We'll also expand our horizons, as we have been pointed at a growing number of reviews about products from a limited number of manufacturers.
To the iP chipset, which was launched nearly two years ago… Many lances were broken over the sudden upgrade to new Intel standards. Fortunately, such memory got cheaper DDR is nearly cheaper than DDR , all new video cards are designed for PCI Express only, and no one remembers how the old socket looked like. Additional controllers are kept to minimum, but there are some nice features like an integrated POST controller , passive chipset cooling, and as a result - a low price. This model also has drawbacks, of course — it does not support dual-core processors all cores newer than Prescott and DDR memory and higher , but it's a questionable drawback.
Scanty functionality has a good effect on the PCB layout: there are absolutely no problems with arranging a few connectors for peripheral devices and expansion cards. A main power connector in the center of the board is a peculiarity of most EPoX models, which has a positive effect on voltage regulators, though it poses some problems with laying a power cable.
Besides, this connector is very close to the PCIEx16 slot on this motherboard, so it will fight for the surrounding space with a video card with a bulky heatsink. Access to jumpers is not hampered when the motherboard is installed into a PC case.
But both of them are placed close to other elements: one of them is near a PCI slot, the other - to the display of the POST controller.
So it's not very convenient to manipulate them. Brief description of their functionality is provided on the PCB sometimes in unexpected places. The PCB has empty seats for a chassis intrusion sensor and a connector for a Game port on a bracket. Note an unusual interface for the Mbit network adapter. However, we should get used to mass-scale products for PCI Express, not just to top Gigabit controllers. Anyway, theoretically, it's more correct to connect an integrated controller to a special PCI Express channel rather than to PCI, which can be overloaded by external adapters.
Post Port — an onboard LED-display to show error codes, helping users to detect boot-up problems. The list of error codes can be found in the user manual. The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn't been tested. For once in a way we can see an EPoX motherboard that allows to specify only 4 main memory timings; however, other budget solutions often fail to provide even these settings.
But those results were obtained on a different testbed by a different test procedure. Fortunately, a couple of budget models were tested in our lab not long ago. So we'll compare our model under review with those motherboards. The difference is always small. But the competitors are far from the top level, so the EPoX model with a given BIOS version offers an average performance level at best. Bottom line However, positioning of this model corresponds well to its performance. But an unpretentious home user or a dealer of mass-scale office solutions will gain high production quality, a reliable power supply system, minimum functionality, reasonable upgradeability — all this comes at a modest price.
An excellent budget motherboard — no more, no less. This model on the manufacturer's web site The motherboard is kindly provided by the manufacturer Sergei Pikalov peek ixbt. Write a comment below.

All the Epox Motherboard user manuals are usually found directly from the Epox support site, if the pages does not show details please check the Epox website for EP-8K3AE instruction As you can see, running the memory bus at MHz and giving us the extra bandwidth shows us a slight but measureable performance increase. Download it and see if it will work for you. This is particularly annoying as there are customers who also use their 5.
