Epox 8K3A+ KT333

Written By:
Date Posted: June 10, 2002

    One of the few KT333 boards that was released after the chipset launch was the Epox 8K3A series.  Epox has been a strong supporter of both VIA chipsets and AMD CPU's since the release of the VIA MVP3 chipset.  One of my first SDRAM based motherboards I used was an Epox 58MVP3C-M board.  This board lasted over 2 years of hard labor and the next few socket 7 motherboards I purchased were all Epox boards.   These boards helped me to come to a better understanding of how to overclock, in fact they could be credited with giving me the overclocking 'bug'.  But above anything else these boards were very stable and as such I have come to expect great stability from any Epox board I use.

    Their most recent VIA based Athlon motherboards were considered very highly by many people, both the quality and ability of these motherboards was very impressive.  The precursor to the 8K3A series, the 8KHA series was extremely overclockable as many of the top FSB speeds for Athlons were made on one of these motherboards.  So has this ability been carried over to the new 8K3A+ board?   Well let us see as we look at this board.

The Board

    For a detailed specification I invite you to look at
