EPoX’s POST Port LED error-code display is a valuable troubleshooting device that shows the POST codes while the PC boots up. By looking up the codes in the manual, you can quickly detect the error without time-consuming process. Magic Health reports the system status for every boot up to help detect faults early. EPoX Power BIOS offers abundant excellent overclocking settings via BIOS. EPoX, in addition, designed Magic Flash, a clever utility for automatically updating BIOS in Windows environment, making DOS-based flash utility or bootable diskette a thing of the past.
