I bought an epox 8rda+ in february of 2002. It came dead twice and I had to rma it twice before I got a working board. Now flash forward to now and I am having slight stability problems and my athlon xp which had 256K of L2 cache now has 64K...
Well low and behold that now that the warranty is out in march and after that I open up my case to dust and notice 3 bulging caps on my motherboard. So now after a shitty experience with the board in the beginning it is going to go all the way to the end being a piece of shit. So now I can either have its caps replaced for $14 shipping x2 for each way or for $60 get a whole new board from another company.
Screw you epox! You are the worst company ever and hope someone gets a class action suite against you because I was looking around and seems epox has had tons and tons of bad caps on motherboards and forcing users to pay for something they should have to pay for.
Hey alex tons of boards were sent out with those GRC/Teapo caps that were defective...email Epox support and they will send you an rma for that 8rda. I just got one for my 8rda...you just have to pay for shipping to them. They fixed my 8k7a's that had bad caps also but i had to pay for shipping both ways which was like 20 buck for my two 8k7a's. I understand your mad but dont toss the board away get it fixed or send it to me
Should epox have tossed out the caps yes...but they owned to many of them...a crapy cost benifit anaylsis with the only way to make a profit using the caps they already purchased. If you see me around IM me.
