Page4 below image "The cooler for the MCP-T is another interesting feature: it looks important, but is of no use at all."

Did he actually try these boards, the SB gets bloody HOT.
I definitly advise cooling there. Off course if they pasted it with some frag tape that barely makes contact .....

I never read the reviews on Tomshardware because they suck.

pfff, tom is being paid, the conclusions always suck. But he can review so many things

and another mistake, in the epox 8RDA3+ overview:
"In place of the controller in the MCP-T, a separate, full-blown FireWire chip from Agére is used (FW323). This offers three ports instead of just two"

Off course the 8RDA3+ unlike his "smaller" brother uses the MCP chipset. And I though the MCP-T chipset had the advantage compared to an onboard PCI device. not the other way around.
