Review: EPoX 9NDA3+

Introduction

The 9NDA3+ is EPoX’s first Socket 939 offering in the exciting AMD 64-bit market and I now have the pleasure of owning one. Based on the nForce 3 Ultra chipset which provides dual channel memory capability and a 2ghz system bus. The board features a special Power BIOS for overclocking and tweaking.
