5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: Had this mobo run for a month now, no problems. Easy setup, Great Bios but have to change cpu speed which is no biggie. For some reason works better than my asus A7N8X. I recommend this product for its quality, performance and price. Nevertheless NEWEGG rocks!

Comments: Excellent board. This is my first board from Epox and it has lived up to its reviews. I searched all over and found good reviews and I have not been disappointed. Easy setup, good utilities on disc, and a great price. While an ASUS fan, I am totally satisified with the price and performance of this board.

4 out of 5 eggsNice motherboard

Comments: Built an XP2000 512 Crucial pc2100 and a Seagate 160 GB HDD. I liked the motherboard. Had nice features like CPU temp reading in the POST. Had one problem though even after LOADING OPTMIAL SETTINGS. Everytime i put any cards in the PCI slots and started to install the driver it would pop up a blue screen and reboot. So I flashed the bios to the newest bios out and it fixed that problem and it ran fine. So four stars. Oh btw it wasent the modem i tried 7 different modems and even other types of cards like soundcards etc. EPoX has a nice product. But I'm sticking with MSI

5 out of 5 eggsIMPORTANT - DO THIS FIRST!

Comments: Now that I'm running 3 of these MB's, I decided to read the reviews. Like "bigblue" (review below), I've used Epox MB's for longer that I can remember - exclusively. Those who have had problems with setups (even minor ones) are all problems I've seen over the years - but they don't happen IF YOU GO TO BIOS ON FIRST BOOT AND LOAD THE OPTIMIZED DEFAULTS! It does tell you that in Epox manuals but it is buried in the text - and actually a bit out of order. Epox makes a great product but they don't have the fanfare of the big names. They are Fast AND Stable. You will never regret using an Epox MB, but again (and mentioned in bigblue's earlier review) you must load those optimized defaults on first boot to assure an easy setup.

And of course - get them from Newegg. They are awesome, too.

Comments: Just built another system with this board and it's up and running very smoothly after a 48 hour burn-in using SiS Sandra. Put a 2500+ Barton in this wtih 512 PC2700 and again, I'm impressed with it's speed under Win XP.

Comments: I purchased this MB to go with a AMD 1.4 chip I was given. I have NEVER put a PC together before, but this MB helped make the process a whole lot less scary. The BIOS is very user friendly, and allows you to overclock fairly easily. The new PC has been up and running since March without a hitch. The onboard voltage and temperature monitor rocks. If you're like me and this is your first effort at PC building, check out PC Mechanic's How-To Guide.

Comments: Have used EpoX MB's since the K6-2 boards and all but one were a breeze to set up. This board is no different. I've used 2 of them now - from New Egg of course - and neither of them had any roblems in set up. To make things go smoothly, however, you MUST go to BIOS setup on first boot and load the optimized defaults then restart. Once you do that, you can go back in and adjust your BIOS settings as you like them. Board is extremely fast and as usual for EpoX, it is rock solid stable. There have never been compatability problems with any component I've used with Epox MB's except on major brand of memory (I won't mention the name)- generic and all other brands work great.

As usual, New Egg and FedEx come through right on schedule and as advertized. Ordered VERY late Sunday night and this board and other parts arrived right on schedule Thurs.

5 out of 5 eggsA very good motherboard for the price

Comments: Installed with no problems
A little slow to boot but I read on the EPOX website that the most current BIOS improves it.
Could not get the SATA driver to install but a couple of emails with prompt EPOX support gave me the solution.
Needless to say that as usual with Newegg, it arrived in no time at all.
Good EPOX technical support

Comments: This board was bad after two days. IDE controller chip set went bad. I love Epox's designs, but I really am getting peeved with their quality control issues. I've bought 3 Epox boards in the last 2.5 yrs., and 2 of them have had problems.

Comments: Got this board to replace my old Epox 8K9A which fried, through no fault of the old board. Performs just about the same as the 8K9A(KT400 chipset) it replaced since they are basically the same board except for a few features. No complaints at all. Rock solid and overclocks well.
