    no raid? interesting to note how they ship gf4 mx's with hsf, and yet slap on a passive heatsink to the igp, altho one could argue that the fan does little...

    Strange I didn't pick up on that myself. The "+" on EPoX boards usually means it includes RAID - Maybe the picture we were supplied was of the standard version.
