    Not likely. When you get the speeds so high that your peripherals start to revolt on you, then it will just give you some weird graphical glitches, lock up for no reason (a lot), or fail to load Windows.

    What BIOS revision do you peeps have?

    L or N+ ?

    (Look on your bios chip, its handwritten)

    Mines the N+

    Apparantly the L had some 'issues' with a few things...

    My first 8KHA had an L and it ran great - until the bios chip fried itself - my second 8KHA had an L & it definately had "issues" - although I was hesitant to blame it on the MB since I had swapped the CPU, PS & video card at the same time - although it was rock solid in all apps. as long as all clocks and volts were at default - but where's the fun in that

    my new 8KHA+ has an N+ - and it does everything I ask of it and more :D

    I'll check when I change out motherboards, probably within a week. Gonna be testing a new Gigabyte board so I'll check the BIOS chip on the EPoX when I have it out.

    Quick question...

    Are there any issues with this board requiring registered memory if all of the memory slots are used? I'm at work, and the EPoX site doesn't have an online manual listed for this board... just the older non "+" model.

    Thanks

    Havn't heard of any Darth but a few sites did load up all slots with different density sticks when it was 1st released with no probs. ;)

    I'm a new owner and hope to be a happy owner. So far I've got off to a few glitches but I don't think the board is bad. The main problem is that when I change the JCK1 jumper from the default 1-2(100MHz) to 2-3(133MHz) the computer isn't stable. Windows XP will not boot from CD or HD, it gives file errors, says file are missing and corrupt. I read the forum at AMDForums.com with all of the links to bios updates and frankly, this just scares me. I'm a new computer builder, previously I'd just waisted money on over the counter crap. Can someone phrase some of this stuff in English, just point out important BIOS updates that might help fix my problem. Also, I have the issue I've seen posted on other sites, the keyboard num lock stays on after power off. It seems to have something to do with the ACPI function. Also, my power light won't work on my case, I wonder if that has something to do with the ACPI. Is everyone using this or is it something that causes problem? Wow I've made a long post, lots of questions. I hope to shoot some of them down over the next few days and have my computer running like a champ. :shoot3:

    Ya power light just maybe that you have it hooked up backwards. ;)
    Have you got your memory setup to run at +33MHz over the FSB in the BIOS? :?:
