Warranty / Repair
Distributors (direct customers with account)
Warranty is extended solely to our direct customers and under NO
circumstances is transferable. EPoX works closely with our
distributors to provide timely and accurate RMA (repair) services to
End-users / Resellers (non-direct customers)
For all end-users your primary source for technical support is
your place of purchase -- they should have the most current
information about your configuration. All non-direct customers
should obtain repair, exchanges or refunds from their place of
purchase only. Non-direct customers under all situations are bound
by the terms of sale between themselves and their dealers. Check
your invoice or sales receipt for your dealer's terms and conditions
they have made to you.
However, under certain circumstances - based solely at our
discretion - we may extend warranty repair coverage to individuals
on a case-by-case basis (example - dealer is out of business). The
limit of all coverage is up to maximum two (2) years based on either
purchase date, dealer terms and/or manufacture date. Actual coverage
may be less than 2 years based on your terms of sale. Be advised
individuals will be required to provide a printed invoice and an
valid serial number from the product. Products damaged, marked as
refurbished/used, those sold at auctions by other individuals and/or
stolen may not be deemed appropriate for service. For example, prior
to your purchase consider if the place of purchase can supply you
with support and service. It might not be a good idea to purchase
these kind of products through post/mail order.
Exceptions to warranty
During the EPoX mainboard warranty period some products may be
excluded from warranty, EPoX will not take responsibility in some
cases to repair the items returned. The products produced and sold
by EPoX are intended to be used by professionals and damage caused
by improper use or abuse or not covered in our warranty; i.e.,
boards damaged during assembly by tools (where PCB lines are open),
Boards damaged by improper cooling and burning (where PCB is
affected by such burning that is impossible to repair), boards
damaged by customer shipping (where components are broken off or
corners of the PCB are scuffed).
We are aware that EPoX products are known and even intended for
flexible usage and tweaks, these functions are solely intended for
those responsible to do so. V-modding or other modifications are
also not covered by the warranty.

To verify the compatibility of a certain processor with a mainboard
or vice versa, please do view our processor
compatibility listings. Maximum supported processors are listed in
Megahertz, except for Athlon XP/MP processors which are listed by
their XP rating using the quantispeed architecture.

EPoX provides for our customers on-line manuals for many of our
products. If your manual is lost or destroyed then this is the
right place for you. Most of the manuals are in Adobe Acrobat
format which requires either a plug-in or reader. Some older
manuals are scanned images of the original printed version ZIP
Many of our motherboards have gone through many stages of
"revision." While viewing the online documents keep in mind that
the information may not apply to your board revision. The revision
number of your motherboard is written in white silk screened
letters in the upper left hand corner of your motherboard, just
behind the leftmost ISA / PCI slot.
Some older model motherboard manuals (out of production boards)
may not be available
Mainboard manuals are downloadable from our
mainboard manuals download page.
Various drivers for all mainboards can be downloaded from our main
driver area at
What is a driver?
A driver is a piece of software used by your computer to communicate
with a particular peripheral. There are drivers for printers, the
video, sound, modems, etc. Drivers are regularly updated and new
versions can help fix problems and bring significant performance
Why upgrade drivers?
There are two main reasons to upgrade drivers:
1. Problem fixing
Compatibility problems are the most frequent problems solved by a
new driver release. For instance, certain software may not run
correctly due to the way they display information on the screen: the
problem can be solved either by a new video driver or with a new
release of the software.
2. Support of a new technology
Some peripherals rely on the processor computing power (for
instance, Digital cameras and scanners). Others peripherals
integrate dedicated, specialized chips (for instance, graphics
accelerator cards). New drivers optimize the communications speed
and task sharing between the processor and the peripheral.
