4BDA2+ at Tweakers Asylum

"The EPoX 4BDA2+ is THE BEST PERFORMING Intel Pentium 4 DDR based motherboard we have reviewed to date at the Tweakers Asylum. Wait.. It get's better.

The 4BDA2+ is ALSO the most overclockable Intel Pentium 4 based motherboard we have reviewed to date at the Tweakers Asylum. Needless to say I was VERY impressed with the 4BDA2+'s overall performance. Yes, I already mentioned this earlier in the review but I felt it was worth mentioning a second time."

8K3A+ at

"Given the results, the EPoX 8K3A+ offers better performance than any other motherboard sporting non-KT333 chipsets. In addition, the 8K3A+ supports new features, such as ATA133, USB 2.0, and perhaps even 8X AGP on future revisions of the board. As usual, EPoX includes their award-winning facets like outstanding overclocking support, a "tweakable" BIOS, the onboard diagnostic Debug card, and the quality and performance of EPoX products."

8KHA+ Mainboard of the Year 2001

"Mainboard of the Year. This one was a bit hard to decide on this year. Last year the ABIT KT7A VIA KT133A board was easily the best pick from our perspective. This year there have been some amazing boards, but EPoX has shined above all with their 8KHA+. Not only has it been a very economical board, it has also given enthusiasts some of the best OCing they have ever seen with FSB speeds reaching into the clouds. I have recommended this board to hundreds of people easily and I have yet to get an ugly email back condemning my choice. Now we just want to see EPoX keep doing what they are doing."

4SDA+ at

"The EP-4SDA+ makes no shortcut on features and for the enthusiast it may have the dominant features that made the 8KHA+ stand out from the rest albeit in a socket A format. There are a significant (4) amount of dipswitches positioned around the board offering complete extreme overclocking configurations. For a while now we have seen many manufacturers limit the amount of the dipswitch combination to one or two, and in some respects it reduces the error rate of installations and relying on bios features to control the adjustments. But as we have seen with many boards the limiting factor often appears very quickly and never allows the enthusiast to go beyond the extreme limits with out some external modification."

8KLM2 at

"This feels like a nice little motherboard for a small mid end workstation, coupled with a decent Mini case, it should prove to be a nice reliable workhorse. It certainly seems very stable, I never hammered it but I have seen much more expensive motherboards become unstable and run a lot hotter when being asked to do what I done with this one."
