Default Re: EPoX 9NDA3J and + mini-heatsinks

Very nice. I picked up a huge, full-size tower and love it so much. Not only did it decrease my temps by like 10C (on the CPU and the ambient temps), but it gave me SO much more room. My old mid-tower was so cramped, this one has plenty of room for stretching.

I'd be forced to 2T, but again, that can be adjusted, right?
yup, the venice core will allow you to 1T 4 sticks of ram. its a sweet deal the board just loves on you with stable goodness, while the cpu decides your 1T or 2T for you.

Fantastic...man, this is exciting. I can't wait to get home from work and play around with it some more.

My Epox "J" came with those little heatsinks too, but I never used them. Sent them out with the board when I sold it. Rock stable board. I'd get another Epox after that.

Put the heatsinks on the mosfets.

Those are the voltage regulators, usually located around the top of the board. They get extremely hot, especially if you pump voltage into components

hmm...okay, I'll see what I can do about putting these on there.

I cranked this bad boy up to 2.25GHz and it's barely breaking a sweat. It's been going in Prime95 for about an hour I'd say and has been rock solid the whole time.

I love this board/CPU.
