Introduction and Specifications

Introduction


Epox sure has gone through a roller coaster ride over the last few years.  Back when Amdmb.com was first growing, Epox worked its way up to being known as one of the better enthusiast brands of motherboards by offering good overclocking features and high performance.  However, sometime last year, the US branch of Epox looked to be shutting down due to lack of sales.  Somebody somewhere decided to give the Epox brand another shot though, as the company has returned bringing new products to the US as well as sampling product to the media.  Hence, we have a review of the Epox 9NPA+ nForce4 Ultra motherboard.


Since now we will have to specify, this motherboard is based on the nForce4 Ultra chipset for the AMD platform, and utilizes the new PCI Express bus for graphics cards and expansion slots.  Here's a quick look at the specification provided by Epox.
