8K9A2+ at

"I've been quietly impressed by this motherboard. It performs admirably, although we, as yet, don't have enough motherboards to directly compare its performance. It's got a number of useful features that should satiate the needs of those looking for frills and speed. I like the BIOS. It gives the user enough flexibility to really push their system without being dangerous (I've seen S462 motherboards with 2.4v Vcore). I also like the fact that one can choose a 5:1 FSB:PCI ratio, thereby keeping everything in check at 166FSB, i.e. support for the DDR333 processors. The very fact that it appears to fully unlock our test XP2400 allows us to put this divider into immediate use."

8K9A2+ at VR-Zone

"EPoX 8K9A2+ has a great BIOS with many tweakable settings. The BIOS allows FSB adjustment from 100-255Mhz in 1Mhz intervals, VCore up to 2.0V, VMem up to 3.2V and various memory timings settings. Not to mention, this board is unlocked internally for T'Bred processors therefore multipliers can be adjusted freely. This board proves to be an excellent board for overclocking and certainly the best choice for overclockers as good stability is still achievable under high FSB overclocking. I am able to increase the FSB from 133Mhz all the way up to 226Mhz and the memory performance is just amazing at that insane speed."
