I am not impressed with the Epox. This is very useful tool when you’re building a system and something goes wrong – and is essentially a counter to MSI’s Dr.

8KHA+ and Epox RAID Card

I sent it back to the place I bought it. I have the same controller card and it works great for me.

Marc Smack-Fu Master, in training Registered: With hd tach getting an burst off From what you posted it’s pretty obvious that the card is detected by the OS so I don’t think there’s a problem with it. I would be interested in buying one, how much do they cost and where did you buy yours?

While I’d probably use the onboard audio for a while, I would eventually upgrade to an add-in card. I will definitely be using onboard audio for the time being, and the Soyo board is better in that regard from what I can see.

I tend to be super picky about little things on motherboards, not so much so you’ll decide to buy something raidd, but rather to drop suggestions to the motherboard engineers.

You should have a screen during boot up that’s labeled Aralion Technologies or something along those lines. It wouldn’t be that much cheaper, the sound is integrated rald the southbridge. Too bad the 8k7a doesn’t come without onboard sound, it’d be even cheaper. Jun 28, Posts: Those are the ones that I narrowed it down to.
