INTRODUCTION. This article provides detailed instructions for installing the EpoX 8KHA+ DDR Socket A AMD Athlon/Duron Motherboard in a typical computer. The 8KHA+ is a very popular, high-performance motherboard featuring the VIA KT266A chipset and supporting all AMD Socket A processors in current production. For those wanting to build a new computer with this motherboard, the steps in this article are designed to dovetail with those in How to Build a Computer with an AMD Socket A Athlon or Duron Processor (http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/buildcom/socka/1.htm) by replacing the motherboard installation steps in that article with detailed steps specific to the 8KHA+ in this article. We used Athlon XP 1600+ (1.4 GHz) processors, Thermaltake Volcano 5 heatsink-fans ("coolers"), and Antec KS282 cases (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Cases/antec/ks282.htm) with 300 Watt power supplies for the three computers built with the 8KHA+ while writing this article.
