Significant Award at VIAHardware

For one of our mainboards to win an awards is always a good thing, however when our product is placed against 9 competitors product and comes out at the top beating undeniably stiff competition from the likes of Abit, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI.......

"This is, without a doubt, the fastest board tested. The 8K3A+ delivers more than should be expected from a board in its price range. On top of that, it includes a nice RAID controller and decent onboard sound. EPoX has rapidly become the overclocker's brand of choice, and the 8K3A+ makes it very clear why. A big VH "thank you" to EPoX for giving us the opportunity to test such a fine product."
