    What are the common issues with this motherboard? (EP-8KDA3I) I do not
    plan on using SATA. It does have a place to plug in front USB ports right?
    It will work without a floppy drive connected, won't it? Any advice on what
    to and not to do with this motherboard would be great. P.S. Since this is
    going to be for someone else, I won't be overclocking. Can you make custom
    boot-up screens with this motherboard and is it easy to do?

    Guess you mean 8KDA3J?
    It works withou a floppy you can disable it in the BIOS. and you can
    make your own boot-up screens with Magic BIOS. There is USB connector on
    the board you can use for your front ports.

    According to newegg.com, there's an 8KDA3I and a 8KDA3J. Apparently the I
    is new?

    I guess epox has a page for the I too.

    I just built a system for my brother last weekend with an 8KDA3J. Very
    nice. I wish it was mine. The hardest part was figuring out the new A64
    retension mechanism. Then there was the cool and quiet thing.

    Could you give me advice on that? This will be my first install of an A64 -
    I've always used XP's before that.

    In case you wonder the difference is that J has ALC850 (8 channel sound)
    and Gigabit LAN.

    What exactly do you want to know? The retension mechanism? You hook on
    both clips and then you turn the lever down. I did not see a way to lock it
    down but it seemed to stay.
