  1. I suppose EPOX is not alone on this one. HardOCP has a small news blurp on this:

    I'm quite certain that the mem chips on the GFX card will interfere with the IDE header as shown here:

    If you ask me it's Nvidia's fault for making the card so chunky. They should've put all the guts on top of the card instead of facing down.

    ECS simply needs to redesign the layout of their next generation board.
