Whether you’re using a MSI, Asus or Epox motherboard, Port 80 codes are identical from one platform to another and really do come in handy when you’re faced with a PC that refuses to start up. And that is the point of rounded IDE cables, is it not? EPoX has gone all out to give you a bit of an explanation of the features as well as a full colour photo of the board so there is no doubt on what you are getting. Like any electrical device, keeping it cool is a good idea. Tweaking and tuning can be a lot of fun, just write down what you’ve changed between each benchmark setting or you’ll quickly loose your place.

EPoX has gone for a full ATX 24×30 layout that is so popular today for enthusiast boards, however, the layout could have been completed with a little more thought. The cable set that comes with this board is pretty basic. As such, it is fair to expect that SLI boards will normally offer fewer features than boards.
