Epox EP-9NPA+ SLI
Epox would also like to get into the gaming arena, and sent us the 9NPA+ SLI for testing. Once again the nForce4 SLI chipset from NVIDIA is used. This board is really visually striking due to its colorful component selection. In addition, the air guide module on the back panel is unusual; with the aid of a 40 mm fan, it diverts the waste heat of the power converter, and some produced by the CPU, to the back of the case. Fortunately, the fan operates at a tolerable volume level; Abit is the only other manufacturer with this type of outlet system (OTES).
