EPoX EP-9NPA+ SLI nForce 4 SLI AMD Review

Introduction & Specs

Ever since Ryan reviewed the nForce 4 SLI back in October 2004, I've been eager to get my hands on one for a review. Of course since then Ryan has reviewed SLI boards from Asus, Gigabyte and DFI and we've seen that all these boards perform roughly the same. So what differentiates one offering from another is their price, features, and service/warranty. It is for this reason I'm looking forward to reviewing the EPoX EP-9NPA+SLI. The EP-9NPA+SLI is priced cheaper than many higher end boards, and knowing EPoX's reputation you can expect a lot of overclocking features too. So let's see if EPoX has a winner on their hands with their top AMD board.



Specifications


The following are just the basic tehcnical specs, which does not include any of EPoX's extra stuff and special features. If I listed those here, it'd spoil the surprise, right?
