    I bought a 9NPAJ sli a few months ago from OcUK primarily because of the contrasting experience I had with Epox and DFI nforce2 motherboards (also tried Abit nforce2). At the end of the day the epox only did 200Mhz but was rock stable whereas I found the overclocks of the others were so unstable I would drop back to 200Mhz anyhow. Especially the DFI was a PITA, with the cold boot problems (many users wouldnt have the patience to spend 2hrs getting it to post again).

    Just looking at some of the mobo prices and I bought the Epox for under £70 (no firewire or 2nd sata-II controller).

    I dont understand why overclockers is no longer stocking this brand. I would quite happily seek out another reseller if it means that I get as trouble free an end user experience as I have had with Epox. :)

    Thats strange I just installed a new bios which is dated 24/4/06. I also recieved a free serial printer connector when I enquired about this at www.epox.org. The tech who did this has since left however.

    As for support :
    http://www.aoaforums.com/forum/27-epox-motherboards/
    This is the best support forum that Ive been a member of, has technicians actually respond to problems as well as other end users.

    If u meant returns, I wouldnt know about that, I havent returned one yet (thanks to a bios savior).
