EPoX has put together a very solid motherboard in their 5EGA+. Of course we were waiting to see the super-OCing motherboard of EPoX past, but that did not happen. We have had more than a few Prescott/915/925 motherboards on our bench this year that would never pass our initial stress tests. When we cannot get them to perform stable at a stock speed of 3.6GHz, we throw them back into queue and move on to another board while we wait for answers hopefully. The EPoX 5EGA+ performed very well through our torture tests and never once showed any signs of instability. The EPoX 5EGA+ also did very well in the scoring although it trailed a bit I our gaming benchmarks, but not by a margin that you would likely ever notice in real-world gameplay.
Sadly, if you are an enthusiast, this motherboard seems to be one that has an ability to possibly end up being a disappointment. EPoX PR pointed out that others had not had our problems, but the fact is that our board would not OC and they never showed us a motherboard that would, so we are left with limited experience to report on. When it comes to the world of 915/925 motherboards, there are other motherboards currently on the market that are simply going be more attractive to me.
