Max CPU on 8KHA and 8KHA+

Discussion in 'Epox' started by Ben Covarrubias, Aug 10, 2004.

  1. Greetings.
    I've done some digging on EPOX's website, but their information seems out of
    date for these older boards. I have both boards running the latest drivers
    and BIOSs they can support, and I'm wondering just what is the ceiling of
    CPU I can put in them. I have two PCs; running one of each board. If anyone
    can tell me what the fastest CPU I can put in these Mainboards is I would
    appreciate it.

    Thank you,

  3. Thank you! I had seen the pdf one time before, but didn't make much sense
    out of the multiple listings of the model types. Looking it over again, I
    see where they mention the rev #, and BIOS footnote. Looks like I should be
    able to get at least a little more life out of the 8KHA+ then.

    Thanks again!

    8KHA (rev 1.3) max is 1800+ Athlon XP (Palomino core) at 266MHz.

    8KHA+ (rev 2.0) max is 2600+ Athlon XP (T-bred core) at 266MHz.

    Of course it depends on the REV which you did not provide.

    Please help,

    I have a 8hka+ and I am receiving a 41 post code. Manual says this is
    Any idea on how I should go about diagnosing this problem. Will not
    boot to floppy cd-rom or hard drive just hangs at 41.

    512 mb and 256 mb of ram in slot 0 and 1
    Athlon 1800+ xp

    Did complete post a couple of times and even booted up my hard drive.
    But now it just hangs.

    Also can you give the procedure for clearing the cmos using the jumper
    ( power cycle or just leave on for a pre-determined time or unplug?)

    Thanks for your help,

    mobo problem - try reseating the cpu
    There is no procedure - switch system off, just jumper over to the Clear
    position (few seconds) and set the jumper back to Normal as described in the
    handbook. Before doing a Clear write down all your bios settings since u
    have to re-enter it
    manually after the clear.
