It appears now that the KT based motherboards are getting ready to step up to the call and start going head to head with the other DDR based solutions out on the market today. We noticed no decrease in stability because of it. This situation is not present only with this motherboard, I’ve seen it now on about 3 different models all DDR boards from different manufacturers. Every other operation or function is controlled through the BIOS, including all of the board’s overclocking features, which we will get to in more detail shortly. Designed for the LANer, or if you have to transport your PC alot, this little white clip prevents the video card from being bumped out.

The system would simply hang after the Starting Windows text prompt appeared after the first reboot in the installation process. The KT has certainly taken a turn for the better over the last couple of months, but we wanted to see if EPoX could keep their track record of late up to par.
Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon’s website. You can find products similar to this one for sale below. USB – 2 standard rear connectors with 2 more headers on the board for a total of 6 possible. This information will also give you something to look for if you are considering a new case for your PC. But will this affect the stability and overclockability. Instead, what is provided here is the added PCI slot for a total of 6 on the board.
Although the chipset was introduced to the public last year, the first KT boards seemed to arrive with different issues relating to system stability, and most of the boards received a less than warm welcome from the hardware testing community.
[H]ardOCP: EPoX EP-8KHA KT
Previous Page Next Page. Another point I did want to mention about the board’s physical properties is something that I’ve noticed lately with different boards and how they mount, or sit, in some small to medium cases. Located to the rear of the board’s DIMM memory slots, toward the top corner of the 8khs, are some capacitors that are mounted near the corner.
Those voltage regulators on the back didn’t hinder overclocking. The utilization of V-Link is an important step up for computer motherboards.
Actually, it is the cleanest that I have ever seen. Although I know there are people out there somewhere that have an AMR device probably a modem in their system, I have yet to meet or talk directly to anyone that does. Log in Don’t have an account? Subscribe to our Newsletter.
There are three 3-wire cooling fan headers on the board marked for CPU, power, and chassis. It appears now that the KT based motherboards are getting ready to step up to the call and start going head to head with the other DDR based solutions out on the market today. Site design and front-end production by mike kane. The board is very high performing and was the only one out of the three to actually match the performance of the KTA reference board we looked at almost two months ago.
ThursdayAugust 09, Author: You know something is definitely going on when several board manufacturers delay the release of their product, or in some cases, pulling the product back completely until the issues could be solved. If the installer is unaware of the capacitors and simply sticks the drive in the case, shoving it rearward while mounting, they could break off or damage these components.
The correct settings are marked both in the manual and silk screened onto the board. One of the reasons behind the super clean layout is 8khw great ingenuity of placing the voltage regulators on the back side of the motherboard, thus reducing clutter around the top.
These two LED displays come up with post codes which you find in the back of your motherboard manual. The layout around the Socket A is very, very clean. Another positive note for the board, and for overclockers, is the use of active cooling on the North Bridge and a 3-phase power supply for the higher speed processor’s greater load. This should provide a decent upgrade path for future considerations.
EPoX Computer EP-8KHA, Socket A, AMD Motherboard
We hypothesized that this could be a problem of delivering sufficient power to the AGP slot for the higher clocked 8kkha however once Windows was properly installed, the Ti worked just fine. You won’t find any CNR slots on this board which is a welcome change from the unusable CNR slots we’ve become accustomed to seeing on motherboards. Ritual of the Night Development
