    Ah yes, Serial ATA. Something I need to read up on. Anyone have a link to a comprehensive description/explaination of Serial ATA?

    Thanks for pointing that out Zeradul. Serial ATA seems like a kick ass feature...can't wait to see it in action this fall as the article mentioned.

    Thanks for the link WiGGo.: peace2:

    Oh wow, that is alot simpler than I thought it was going to be. It will even be backwards compatable with existing Parallel ATA... wow-- I didn't expect that.

    The IDE ports are an improvement over the 8K3A+, but not enough for me. Not full-tower friendly:no:

    My last board was an Epox. I agree with Big_Danny... the power supply connector should be located away from the I/O ports.:confused:

    Overall, I say this board will be great and a top choice on my upgrade list.:D

    Seems that EPoX made some last minute changes or added another version to the lineup but the pic shows a HSF on the northbridge plus they changed the RAID controller from the High Point 372 chip to the High Point 374 chip and added another DIMM to the mix. :?:

    Update: It seems that this one is called the EP-8K5A3+ : peace2:

    The HP 374 model is the 8K5A3+.

    Good news (well at least for US users) is that the board is supposed to be available there on 5th of August, i.e. Monday.

    Not sure why it would need HSF on the northbridge however. Maybe it was a picture of the KT400 board?

    BTW: Anyone seen the blurb on Epox's front page about 8K5 family supporting FSB upto 400 Mhz?? I'm pretty sure I've seen one of the reviews of one of the KT333 boards mentioning that it can support FPS of 333 Mhz. It wouldn't have been 8K3A by any chance?

    The reason why I'm asking is that there is growing speculation around the traps that AMD will soon release Athlon with 333 Mhz FSP (instead of current 266 Mhz).
