There’s always problems with most stuff, but I may just go socket for now if Epox or MSI nForce3 isn’t trouble free. If it’s the heatpipe, obviously I wouldn’t recommend that. The company’s motherboards based on the nForce3 deviate a little from this ideology of performance with less money, and today in Israel, the motherboards of the company do not differ in their prices from rivals such as MSI and GigaByte.

Epox 9NDA3+: A New Socket
A better location, particularly for the pin ATX connector, would have been the upper right edge of the board. Mon Nov 08, 3: My Happy Place Registered: The IDE connectors are in the preferred right-edge location, but they are located on lower right instead of upper right. Here is a picture of your heatsink clearing some RAM with heat spreaders.
Is it generally difficult to boot without memory in the first DIMM? Removing the spreaders is not an option for me. This location requires snaking the bulky pin ATX connector over the CPU in many case designs, and it just isn’t the best location for good airflow in most cases.

Feb 15, Posts: VERY tight squeeze So, the system boots, with lovely sub 30 cpu temps. Sun Nov 07, 4: There’s always problems with most stuff, but I may just go socket for now if Epox or MSI nForce3 isn’t trouble free. Try mounting the heat sink in this orientation If you can do so with only gentel nudging of the caps. Like the disappearing floppy, audio cables are rarely required any more, but if you need them, this location works 9ndx3 well.
Could you explain or post pictures about your geometry? Has this improved anything for anyone? Brantford, ON, Canada Registered: Try HWzone in English.
However, the common “push to releas”” lever that works fine with most cards can be a real pain with very large top end cards like the nVidia Ultra. If you look at this profile of the heat 9dna3 as mounted on the ASUS board there appears to be plenty of room.
EPoX 9NDA3+ Socket 939 (nForce3 Ultra) Motherboard Review
Sun Nov 07, This will be fine in most case designs, buit it could be an issue in a full tower case supporting upper bay hard drives Overall, the arrangement of SATA and IDE connectors will work well in most case designs. The company was already in the public consciousness in the days of the AthlonXP and the nForce2 when it presented relatively inexpensive motherboards that provided excellent performance and especially brought OC results impressive by all accounts.
The direction show the heat pipe going on the other side. The company’s motherboards usually excel in very good performance relative to other boards at the same price, and the company persists to give good performance at a decent price as well as good OC options and increased stability.

I finally got the answer I expected. The only exception is the audio connectors, which are in a much more reasonable spot between the AGP and first PCI slot. We liked the facebook page of the zoon. Since many users no longer even use a floppy eppox, this may not matter, but if a floppy drive is still part of your build, this location will be a 9nca3 in some cases. EPoX is one of those companies that the general public does not know, but is known especially among the professional hardware audience.
Do the spreaders have anything to do with that?
Is it likely that a BIOS update will take care of this? Also, I’ve read my mobo manual and there doesn’t seem to be a solution. Assuming I’m up shit creek without a paddle, can anyone recommend me some good RAM that doesn’t have spreaders? Remove 9da3 ‘spreaders and don’t overvolt.
