You’re given a final score for each part mentioned above. Again, please don’t anyone bother to try and sell me on AMD processors. For some years now, overclockers have become a major influence in the motherboard industry. My first question would be, “where can you buy the RAM”? Let’s divide the scores by and call them frames per second in a real game. It’s always pleasing to see parity in this benchmark from competing ‘boards.

MSI 645 Ultra – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – SiS645

It consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. FSB can be manipulated from – Mhz in one Mhz increments respectively.

While keeping the four IDE connectors together is a great idea, their location ,otherboard have been a bit better if they were up by the DIMM slots. Here’s a link to a review of the MSI Ultra.

ASUS, MSI and Abit have done it, once known for stable platforms, they have added to their successes with superb overclocking features. The general layout of the board is good, however.

Epox 4SDA+ SiS Socket Motherboard on

This article takes a look at 10 models, and how they perform in practice. We believe the above to be correct when running CPU jumper in the auto position. The DDR benchmarks are extremely close, suggesting that the memory optimisitions available on both motherboards, at least from a SiSoft Sandra point of view, are equally efficient.


You have to ensure that your IDE cables are of sufficient length to reach the IDE ports, this should be no problem for hard drive cables but may pose a slight problem if you have a slightly larger case. If a person RMA’s a board back to them for servicing the first thing a technician does is drop in a ‘real” Port 80 debugging card.

The 4SDA has amongst the broadest range of options ever seen.

The design on motheroard motherboard box is pleasing to the eye, too, with the support for DDR proudly emblazoned on the front cover. We asked Epox why they go to the extra expense of including these debuggers on their motherboards at COMDEX this year and the answer was pretty simple. Higher bandwidth is usually reflected in greater overall performance. Layout As is our customary tradition here at Hexus, we’ll start at motherbard top and work our way down.

Benchmarks were run 3 times consecutively, an average score was taken.

We’ve deliberately used a 1. This is the broadest range of options we’ve ever seen mofherboard a S motherboard, kudos to Epox for including them, The CPU extra over-voltage options are only available by jumper. Subscribe to our newsletter. Let’s have a look at the 4SDA in a little greater detail.


We’ve previously established that Pifast is sensitive to both CPU speed and memory bandwidth respectively. Sisoft Sandra Professional.

As you can no doubt see, going from DDR to DDR yields impressive results, far greater than the disparity between ‘boards.

DroneZ refused to start at all though the video driver version was the latest. I found it concise, easy to follow and eminently readable. Rather it’s an audio codec that saps up CPU resources to produce so-so audio. We’ll see if the 4SDA can continue this tradition. There were some problems with its graphics core and the Hardware TCL unit: Websites you may also like: Click to find out more.

It was slightly difficult to follow at times.

That’s what we like to see. The DVD is rendered in it’s original resolution of x with the black borders being cropped to avoid unnecessary encoding time. Current students and faculty of accredited Universities may use Frostytech images in research papers and thesis, provided each image is attributed.

You are also given the option of running the performance-enhancing 1T motyerboard command.
