These two LED displays come up with post codes which you find in the back of your motherboard manual. 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.

The first was that for whatever reason, Windows would not get passed the non-GUI portion of its install with a GeForce3 Ti installed. We hypothesized that this 8kya be a problem of delivering sufficient power to the AGP slot for the higher clocked Ti however once Windows was properly installed, the Ti worked just fine.

One of the reasons behind the super clean layout is Epox’s great ingenuity of placing the voltage regulators on the back side of the motherboard, thus reducing clutter around the 8lha. 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.

You know something is definitely going on when 8lha board manufacturers delay the release of their product, or in some cases, pulling the product back completely until the issues could be solved. 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.

I do actually take the time to completely install the board in a case when I’m reviewing it, to see if there are any “little” problems or issues that may have gone unnoticed. But will this affect the stability and overclockability.
One thing that is absent from the board are a lot of jumpers for configuration and overclocking. Previous Page Next Page. This should provide a decent upgrade path for future considerations.
