    My 2nd 4PDA2+ has failed. Ram Channel B seems to be unstable. It has
    bulging/leaking caps clustered around the AGP slot. I assume this is
    the cause, though it is quite possible that it is not.

    The first 1st 4PDA2+ also has bulging caps (fewer) but was perfectly
    stable when I pulled it. Its problem was erratic CPU temp sensing.

    Changing the caps is a consideration. (Zed = DaveH)

    It is tempting to get a third for a variety of reasons, and hope that
    it has good caps, but Epox store's problems are now well known. The
    change to Paypal is not confidence inspiring. A money order may be
    worth the risk.

    Where are you currently on Epox?

    Fairly okay. I wish ep9npa+ultra didn't forget its bios settings
    every once in a while, but I'm still using it. Boards from your era
    often had bad caps, that's just part of the deal.

    Try replacing the $2 cmos battery.

    Since I have a dozen of them on the shelf, that would be the easy fix.
    Unfortunately it makes no difference to the random problem I
    experience with this board. Oh well, at least it got over
    forgetting it had ram; it used to do that all the time during my first
    six months of ownership.

    That's encouraging.

    How old is your power supply?..I remember having this same problem with a
    different would lose it's bios settings.I remember reading
    that I was not the only one having the problem and changing out the power
    supply would fix the did.

    Brand new Antec Trupower 450 with this build. May be a piece of junk
    for all I know, but it wasn't a cheap piece of junk, at least

    That sure sounds like you just got a flaky motherboard.
