Hardware Zone has reviewed the EPoX 4G4A+ 845G motherboard :
The EPoX EP-4G4A+ is indeed one of the better Intel 845G motherboards there is today. Integrating all the essential devices such as RAID, LAN and 5.1-channel audio, the EP-4G4A+ is also an overclocker's paradise. With memory voltage settings all the way up to 3.2V (highest around so far), this board is seriously out to attract the overclockers and power users.

The only letdown is the lack of a proper SPDIF output cable or module to enable users to fully utilize the audio subsystem. In addition, we think EPoX could have bundled an extra bracket to allow users to output both the rear, center and subwoofer channels without converting the on-board Line-In and MIC inputs into an output source.

Although the chipset does not officially support DDR333 memory, we've tested the EP-4G4A+ at that speed and found it to be rather stable and speedy too. Performance of the board was above average and on-par with most of the other well-known boards. However, the board could not handle our full PCI load test when running at the unofficial DDR333 memory speed.
