    Yeah the Alpha & Swiftech coolers fit on the KT3 series...but I think Darth is right...they don't work with the KT4 series

    the orig. Epox 8K9A didn't work with the Alpha8045 either - but the 8K9A2/3's do:rolleyes2

    Obviously, the ultimate goal of a good motherboard, no matter what it looks like, is to be feature rich, perform well, and be stable. Hands down! Lookin' good (colors, etc..) kinda ices that cake for me, though. :cool:

    Just goes to show you that the folks at EPoX listened to the needs of their high-end users. Too bad MSI didn't follow that same business plan.

    dryadsoul,
    Here is what I said in a post just a little further down:
    They used to have those holes as it was part of the standard for the KT333 and earlier chipsets. It wasn't a part of the KT400 standard and they eagerly left it out of their design. I'm hardcore into the overclocking myself, so if a company doesn't want to serve my needs, I'll look elsewhere.

    Your board uses the KT333 chipset and the four holes were still a part of the standard required for this chipset. But it seems that when they came out with the KT400 series boards, they said to hell with the enthusiast. Too bad as I'll not deal with these folks.

    08:34 ET NVDA NVIDIA estimates trimmed at FBR on large design loss; target $11 (12.57)
    Friedman, Billings, Ramsey has learned that NVDA has lost a large design win at Micro-Star (one of its largest customers) to ATYT; firm now believes that other designs at Micro-Star are at risk, given that they had been an NVDA-exclusive customer; additionally, firm believes NVDA's new GeForce FX line will ramp more slowly than expected due to low yields on both discrete and board-level products; trims FY04 rev/EPS ests to $1.80 bln/$0.61 from $1.83 bln/$0.63 (consensus $1.82 bln/$0.59). Price target is $11.



    here's some more MSI news if you're interested - I can't vouch for reliability
    :rolleyes:
