    Look up pictures for yourself...is it just me, or does the FIC board look EXACTLY like the Epox 8k9a2+? I mean, EXACTLY. Kinda makes me wonder. Any news on that?

    You know, I looked at the pic where the board was still in the box and knew right away it was Epox... It could not be otherwise.....

    hehehe, FIC's own boards suck... Go Epox!

    I've contacted VIA regarding this issue - You guys are right, both board are exactly the same.

    I'm thinking maybe both companies have followed VIA's reference design.

    I'll report back soon.

    Can you change the multiplier in the bios of this board without unlocking the chip? I think i heard that somewhere.: peace2:

    If FIC hasn't changed anything and the chip is a Thoroughbred, you can.

    I reckon this board is a rebadged Epox 8K9a2+. It is exactly the same!!!!! To the nth degree!!!!

    I have an EPOX 8K9A2+, and it is awesome.

    I have an XP2200 cpu, and you can change the multiplier in the bios, and it works, no unlocking of the CPU necessary.

    I have had the XP2200 running at 10*200mhz 100% stable.

    Nice...yeah, the Maxtor D740x's seem to handle high FSB's well, as do the WD's. I wanted an IBM drive though, and I haven't heard of similar success. Oh well... :cheers:
