The ATX case header is also properly labelled, something you don’t see on all boards and I was able to connect my case headers without having to refer to the manual which is a nice rarity. The higher speed offsets some of the latency increase and everything moves a bit faster. As you can see, running the memory bus at MHz and giving us the extra bandwidth shows us a slight but measureable performance increase. Like before, a small but appreciable difference in performance is what we are looking for. Given a fast graphics card, you are able to see the effect that memory bandwidth has on the system when you use Quake3. Lastly in our look at general performance we have Serious Sam:

But it will be out soon and be the first nForce motherboard. Here’s a cropped screen grab from Sandra showing the effect that a X; memory and host clock has. Like before, a small but appreciable difference in performance is what we are looking for.
Moving to the right past that circuit and componentry we see the socket itself.
Review: EPoX 8K3A – Mainboard –
As you can see, running the memory bus at MHz and giving us the extra bandwidth shows us a slight but measureable performance increase. Sort of like Microsoft! Excellent performance all round from the board, no question.
Onto Aquamark, our shader-heavy DirectX 8. I’m guessing the P80P module is expensive and it doesn’t appear on the regular 8K3A for cost reasons.
As always, lets start at the top left and work our way across and down. The heatsink does the job fine and remained cool to the touch at all times, even under load.
EPoX 8K7A & AMD XP 1600- Will it work?
Yeah, but even at that posted speed limit, it wont be as fun to drive or corner wpox well, or get you anywheres near as many chicks. This might change in the future since it’s mainly BIOS controlled from what I understand and DDR MHz memory is starting to appear in small quantities and is already available from DDR sticks if you know what you are buying and do your homework!
At MHz and above, your memory clock will match the front side bus speed. Results 1 to 11 of 11 Thread: The KT’s main advantage over KTA besides the little memory controller tweaks is the ability to run the memory clocks asynchronous to the front side bus, in this case with a I haven’t read anything about O’c it.
AGP supports 1x, 2x 3. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. As far as the board itself goes, it’s usual EPoX fare. It’s a little late now Results 1 to 15 of Thumbs up to EPoX for that connector placement.
The KT Northbridge seems to run exceptionally cool. Epx don’t know, I am not getting it untill wednesday.

Again, predictably, we get what we expected. So all the numbers you’ll see in this review were garnered using the 8k3a The results are higher than any KTA results we’ve seen, although only by very small amounts which again highlights something we’ll touch on in the conclusion so keep reading.
The board enjoys the 3-phase power circuitry to provide stable overclocks. A small but measurable increase in performance from the free memory bandwidth that we gain.
X the following graph, all that is changed is the memory clock via a reboot. The numbers are very similar to results we’ve gotten with this CPU on a wide number of boards. What Sandra is really measuring here is the bandwidth the host processor can make use of from what’s available from the memory controller. So they developed the 3-phase solution for some of their boards to assist the enthusiast when overclocking and also to provide overall stability at stock speeds.
