EPoX 4SDA+ SiS 645 Motherboard Review

The usual gamut of options are present. One AGP slot, 4x compliant.

We’ve previously established that Pifast is sensitive to both CPU speed and memory bandwidth respectively. It’s not that much of a deal, but if other manufacturers can ensure memory removal with the presence of an AGP card, then MSI surely should be able to do so too. Higher bandwidth is usually reflected in greater overall performance. DDR For Pentium 4.

The Epox 4SDA is rather barren on the features front. Third party GPU coolers such as the blorb would have a really hard time going down there, to connecting to siw last fan header which is by the port 80 debugger. The frankly amazing range of voltage options could be considered a feature almost unique to Epox.

I havent heard anything, but i would be quite to intrested to know a little about it. Layout As is our customary tradition 6445 at Hexus, we’ll start at the top and work our way down.

Let’s have a look at the 4SDA in a little greater detail. Epox is a relative newcomer to the motherboard scene having been established for just over 7 years. We’ll begin proceedings with SiSoft Sandra’s memory benchmark. Why are there so many? I personally use these little buggers so much I call it Sam Conclusion There is no an unquestioned leader in the today tests, but I’d like to mark out three boards: AOpen AX45 Page 6: Asus P4S Page 7: Let’s now turn out attention to gaming, and see if the Epox can still put up a commendable performance.

And in this case you should assign less memory for the frame buffer.

Epox have also branched out into the Pentium 4 motherboard arena 654 offering ‘boards based on all of Intel’s platforms, again the emphasis has been on performance. The bracket incorporates a further 2 USB 1. Epox have certainly geared the BIOS towards the performance user. The hard drive scores show that they are largely unaffected by the change in motherboards.

You’re given a final score for each part mentioned above. This board alone was without a doubt the best i board we have seen so far.

Where Epox are to be wholeheartedly congratulated is in their thought and implementation of overclocking options. We’re conducting our usual test to 10 million places using the fastest method possible. If I’m going to spend the extra money on a P4, I’m going to spend the extra money for an Intel chipset and maybe even an Intel brand motherboard to run it on; so that I have platform continuity.

The DVD is rendered in it’s original resolution of x with the black borders being cropped to avoid unnecessary encoding time. The low price, coupled with Motherboaard support, should translate into a fine addition to the Pentium 4 motherboard lineup. We see that 3: In Case You Missed it Oct 26, Posts: By including this device on the motherboard, it allows users to reference error messages and solve the problems themselves.
