Chris Tom van AMD Zone en SlotA.com heeft een review gepost van de welbekende Epox 7KXA KX133 moederplank met 5xPCI, 1xISA, 1xAMR en 3xDIMM. In tegenstelling tot Anand, die kritiek uitte op de volgens hem beperkte stabiliteit van de 7KXA, ondervond Chris geen problemen met de werking van het bord. Ook het overklokken van de frontside bus verliep probleemloos tot 110MHz. Helaas is dit, naast een niet helemaal stabiele 115MHz, de enige setting boven 100MHz:
I tested for several days with both the Epox and 2 The Max. Quake Arena deathmatching with RC5 cracking in the back ground was a big part of the testing. I really had no big problems. The only time stability became an issue was when I overclocked my 500 to 750MHz. The sytem would run ok, but it would crash under heavy loads. Other than that it was solid. It's hard to blame the board for not being totally stable on a CPU overclocked 50%, but then again none of the other boards I tested exhibited this trait.
[...] Next I upped it to 115MHz. I got into windows fine, but it would not run as stable as I would like. I could not get Quake Arena to run without crashing at all. I thought it might be that the memory could not handle 148MHz, so I went into the bios and set the memory speed back down to the bus speed of the Athlon. At 115MHz for both the buses I had no stability problems.
