EPOX CORPORATE PROFILE



With over 10 years specialized experience in the computer field, EPoX Computer Company was established in February 1995. The company grew rapidly with expected sales and production capacity and in less than two years our worldwide sales and technical service network was built-up. With a strong R&D team, EPoX was not only able to provide a wide range of products but also has been recognized as an innovation pioneer in the field. Besides the computer field, EPoX has also been expanding into the communications field since 1998. To design and produce 'the 3C' of integrated products is the goals planned for the near future.

 

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION


Back in the good ole' days of overclocking the first Duron and Athlon processors, Epox motherboards were known to be the board of choice to get the highest possible overclock with rock solid stability. Since then, I personally have not seen as much coverage on their products as I have seen with their competition in the enthusiast and mainstream market.



Today I will be reviewing Epox's latest edition to their i865PE (Springdale) based motherboards. The EP-4PDA5+ is not your everyday Springdale motherboard. Although it is not targeted towards the enthusiast market, you will see in the upcoming pages that if you didn't know what chipset the motherboard, you would swear it was a Canterwood.


Aside from performance, this motherboard is no slouch in the feature department either. With an extremely overclocker friendly BIOS, 7.1 channel onboard sound, Gigabit LAN, four SATA drive capability and Prescott support, it's hard to believe that the MSRP is only weighing in at a measly US$110. Is this the fast and cheap motherboard the cash strapped masses have been waiting for?
