Motherboard HomeWorld heeft een korte review online gemikt van de Epox EP-8KTA Socket A moederbord gebaseerd op de VIA KT133 chipset. De layout is vrij relaxed met 6xPCI, 1xAGP en 1 ISA slot. Qua performance werd hij vergeleken met de MSI K7T Pro die in de meeste tests verslagen werd. Hieronder wat meer info:
The board's expansion slot configuration is listed as 6 PCI, 1 ISA, and 1 AGP. Mounting hole locations are not problematic like other boards, as the access to these locations are rather open and not cluttered. At the rear of the board, there are those standard connections, of course done in accordance to the PC99 specifications. And since the board contains onboard audio, the multimedia connections are also present. The remaining audio connections for the CD is located at the rear of these connections, near the AGP expansion slot and the AUX, and modem connections are at the left middle/bottom of the board. Now, behind the rear connector are the DIP switch and ATX power supply connection. The location of the latter is wide open, so access shouldn't pose a problem. At the top middle of the board, you will have the ZIF socket for installing the processor, and at the right of this are the three memory slots. Right next to the last memory slot is the previously mentioned LED. Near the middle and slightly bottom right are the FDC and IDE connections, which I might add don't hinder airflow whatsoever, so cooling the processor and memory shouldn't be problem! The processor and system fan connections are made at the very top right of the board, and the chassis fan connection at the bottom right. Nestled in between the IDE connection and chassis fan connection are the headers to connect to your tower. There are jumpers also on this board, and these jumpers are primarily used for the CPU Host Clock, keyboard power on, clear CMOS, Power Loss Recovery, and STR function. The WOL connection is located at the bottom left of the board. The second USB header is placed at the bottom right of the board.
