Sat Nov 06, However, the common “push to releas”” lever that works fine with most cards can be a real pain with very large top end cards like the nVidia Ultra. Okay, I realize this thread is not very old, but I’m really anxious to get this solved. I e-mailed Epox tech support, but you know that will take a while. Mon Nov 08, 3: As noted, EPoX tries to appeal to as many audiences as possible on its boards, so increasing the number of pitches on the board is in line with this strategy.

The basic layout of the Epox is generally excellent, with some standout elements and a few glaring layout faults.
Secret to booting with no RAM in DIMM 1? (Epox 9NDA3+)
The EPoX panels are easy to identify because the panel manufacturer has maintained the same design over the years – the EPoX panels are among the least beautiful ones to be found, and while other manufacturers combine bright colors and lighted cooling bodies, EPoX actually maintains a minimalistic design which has become a hallmark its.
Sat Nov 06, The company was already in the public consciousness in the days of the AthlonXP and the nForce2 when it presented relatively inexpensive motherboards that provided excellent performance and especially brought OC results impressive by all accounts.
Mon Nov 08, 1: Jan 15, Posts: Is it generally difficult to boot without memory in the first DIMM? Therefore, we should examine whether the new boards bearing the name of the company will continue this tradition of excellence or whether EPoX was swallowed up by the multitude of mediocrity.
Remove the ‘spreaders and don’t overvolt. The option headers are lined up at the bottom of the board in out-of-the-way locations.

Epox 9NDA3+: A New Socket
My heatsink is the Thermalright XP The CPU socket is in 9nda top center of the board. I’m not sure what the issue is. I finally got the answer I expected. I’d rather take a dremel or file to the HS if it’s just the fins. As noted, EPoX tries to appeal to as many audiences as possible on its boards, so increasing the number of pitches on the board is in line with this strategy. EPoX motherboards are one of the secrets of hardware professionals; While panels of well-known manufacturers such as ASUS could cost quite a bit of money and deliver decent performance, EPoX’s parallel motherboards will cost much less and will almost always deliver the same level of performance if not better.
Assuming I’m up shit creek without a paddle, can anyone recommend me some good RAM that doesn’t have spreaders? My situation is resolved. Despite the company’s lack of innovation in the field of design, the company did not cease to resume user comfort and was the first to integrate a display system and reporting on POST status.

This location requires snaking the bulky pin ATX connector over the CPU in many case designs, and it just isn’t the best location for good airflow in most cases. Okay, I realize this thread is not very old, but I’m really anxious to get this solved.
The floppy connector is in a terrible location at the bottom right edge of the motherboard. I tried mounting it the other direction and it is certainly not possible.
