holds true in this test. The Epox 8K7A+ has
posted the highest scores I have personally witnessed.
Whether working or playing, this board it definitely a
top notch performer.
also mention that throughout testing, the 8K7A+ did
not crash at all. This is a very stable board.
The extra steps Epox has taken cooling the Northbridge
and applying heatsinks to the transistors used in the
power array have surely paid off.
the Epox 8K7A+ was an absolute pleasure. This is
a true enthusiast's motherboard, offering all of the
features we crave wrapped in a high performing, stable
package. Having to adjust certain settings via
DIP switches and jumpers on the board may turn off
some users, but its not a major issue once you
understand the benefits. We liked the layout and
slot configuration, and had excellent luck while
overclocking. Anyone looking to build a high-end
Athlon system should seriously consider the Epox
8K7A+. One thing is for sure, this motherboard
has found a new home in this reviewer's personal
system. The Epox 8K7A+ receives a rare
HotHardware Editor's Choice Award and a Heat Meter
