EPoX 8RDA6+Pro nF2 Ultra400+Gigabit MCP Mainboard (NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400Gb)

While all the fuss lately has been over AMD and their Athlon64 and Intel's new Prescott on Socket 775, many users still remain loyal to Socket A. With all the onboard features that are appearing these days on newer generation motherboards, Socket A owners have been feeling a bit left behind. Well, this is all about to change, with Epox releasing the 8RDA6+ Pro Motherboard.

Based on the nVIDIA NForce2 Ultra 400 / Gigabit MCP Chipset, it is crammed with features, the most notable the Gigabit Ethernet and Firewall. This is the same Ethernet/Firewall package found on the Socket 754/939 Motherboards, providing amazing bandwidth due to its dedicated link instead of going through a PCI Device. The new South Bridge also incorporates a Firewall function built into the Chipset. Alongside these features you receive 6 SATA Ports, Raid, Firewire, 8 USB Ports, the list just goes on. And with the announcement and release of the new Socket A Cpu, Sempron, coming in the near future, Socket A looks to have a new Champion Motherboard.

 

 

Package

The package comes standard with the rounded cables, manuals, CDROM, USB bracket, SATA Cables. The power pack comes with mini heatsinks, a power guide, screwdriver. You no longer need to find your screw driver to install the board. If you want to overclock further, install the heatsinks on the MOSFETS.
