Epox 8HDA3+ is a solid product with some strong points and with some little drawbacks. Two SATA controllers with RAID features providing totally six SATA ports and also two integrated network controllers surely draw some attention. Performance and stability are quite good, however we experienced some instability by using two, low latency memory modules. Motherboard's layout is exceptionally good, however it was quite surprising to see only two memory slots.
Integrated audio was worse than expected and also overclocking features weren?t actually very good. These are however minor problems to most normal users and it is quite possible that at least overclocking problems disappear if Epox makes new version of this motherboard with VIAs K8T800 Pro chipset, which has locked AGP and PCI clocks. Except our little problems with low latency memory modules there wasn?t any other compatibility problems during test period. As a whole, Epox 8HDA3+ is quite good motherboard for basic use and for example for a file server.
