We will have (in our company) 2 pcs. of exactly the same model U mentioned. So
probably I can later reffer - when they arrive...
BTW: I have Epox MB at home (sock. A with nForce2) and no problem (and my
friends have similar experiences).
When U didn't hears about something it doesn't mean it is bad. Just it can be
more specialised to some buyers... Or people for some (stupid) reason dont
know them... As far as I know, epox MB are excellent especially for
overclocking (similar or very slightly worse DFI Lanparty MB) - better than
asus - no offence ;)
