8K3A+ at PCPowerZone

News that is good enough for the main news as well as the reviews page !!

"The Epox engineers have done a wonderful job with the 8K3A+, not only have they been able to meet expectations with regards to matching or besting the near-legendary 8KHA+, they have exceeded them in taking the KT333 chipset and squeezing an awesome amount of performance from it. This board completely blows the MSI KT3 Ultra-ARU out of the water with performance like this. I doubt many other board manufacturers will be able to match this kind of performance, Epox have brought out a board that meets the requirements of the most avid overclockers out there - simply awesome! Who would complain about hitting 200MHz FSB straight out the box with no voltage mods etc.? Not many I bet."
