Accelerated Processing Unit (APU)
This motherboard comes with an FM1 socket designed for AMD® Fusion™ A- & E2- series
accelerated processors with AMD® Radeon™ HD 6000 series graphics.
Use an APU designed for the FM1 socket. The APU fits in only one correct orientation. DO
NOT force the APU into the socket to prevent bending the pins and damaging the APU!
1.4.1
Installing the CPU
Unplug all power cables before installing the CPU.
•
Upon purchase of the motherboard, ensure that the PnP cap is on the socket and
the socket contacts are not bent. Contact your retailer immediately if the PnP cap
is missing, or if you see any damage to the PnP cap/socket contacts/motherboard
components. ASUS will shoulder the cost of repair only if the damage is shipment/
transit-related.
•
Keep the cap after installing the motherboard. ASUS will process Return Merchandise
Authorization (RMA) requests only if the motherboard comes with the cap on the
LGA1155 socket.
•
The product warranty does not cover damage to the socket contacts resulting from
incorrect CPU installation/removal, or misplacement/loss/incorrect removal of the PnP
cap.
To install an APU:
1.
Locate the FM1 socket on the motherboard.

Ensure that the socket lever is lifted up to a 90°-100° angle; otherwise, the APU will not fit
in completely.
3.
Position the APU above the socket such that the APU
corner with the gold triangle matches the socket corner
with a small triangle.
4.
Carefully insert the APU into the socket until it fits in place.
The APU fits only in one correct orientation.
DO NOT force the APU into the socket to
prevent bending the pins and damaging the
APU!

Chapter 1: Product introduction
1.4.2
Installing the heatsink and fan
Use only AMD-certified heatsink and fan assemblies.
To install the CPU heatsink and fan:
1.
Place the heatsink on top of the installed CPU, ensuring that the heatsink fits properly
on the retention module base.
•
The retention module base is already installed on the motherboard upon purchase.
•
You do not have to remove the retention module base when installing the CPU or
installing other motherboard components.
•
If you purchased a separate CPU heatsink and fan assembly, apply Thermal Interface
Material to the CPU heatsink or CPU before you install the heatsink and fan assembly.

Your boxed CPU heatsink and fan assembly should come with installation instructions for
the CPU, heatsink, and the retention mechanism. If the instructions in this section do not
match the CPU documentation, follow the latter.

Align the other end of the retention bracket to the retention module base. A clicking
sound denotes that the retention bracket is in place.
Ensure that the fan and heatsink assembly perfectly fits the retention mechanism module
base, otherwise you cannot snap the retention bracket in place.
4.
Push down the retention bracket lock on the retention mechanism to secure the
heatsink and fan to the module base.
5.
When the fan and heatsink assembly is in place, connect the CPU fan cable to the
connector on the motherboard labeled CPU_FAN.
DO NOT forget to connect the CPU fan connector! Hardware monitoring errors can occur if
you fail to plug this connector.

Overview

DIMM_A1
DIMM_A2
This motherboard comes with four Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) Dual Inline Memory Module
(DIMM) sockets. A DDR3 module has the same physical dimensions as a DDR2 DIMM but
is notched differently to prevent installation on a DDR2 DIMM socket. DDR3 modules are
developed for better performance with less power consumption. The figure illustrates the
location of the DDR3 DIMM sockets:

Sockets
DIMM_A1 and DIMM_A2
DIMM_B1 and DIMM_B2
F1A55 R2.0
F1A55 R2.0 240-pin DDR3 DIMM sockets
1.5.2
Memory configurations
You may install 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB unbuffered non-ECC DDR3 DIMMs into the DIMM
sockets.
•
•
•
•
•
You may install varying memory sizes in Channel A and Channel B. The system maps
the total size of the lower-sized channel for the dual-channel configuration. Any excess
memory from the higher-sized channel is then mapped for single-channel operation.
We recommend that you install the memory modules using the blue slots for better
overclocking capability.
Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimal compatibility, we
recommend that you install memory modules of the same version or date code (D/C)
from the same vendor. Check with the retailer to get the correct memory modules.
When overclocking, some AMD CPU models may not support DDR3 1866 MHz or
higher frequency DIMMs.
Due to the memory address limitation on 32-bit Windows® OS, when you install 4GB
or more memory on the motherboard, the actual usable memory for the OS can be
about 3GB or less. For effective use of memory, we recommend that you do any of the
following:
-
-
ASUS F1A55 R2.0
Use a maximum of 3GB system memory if you are using a 32-bit Windows® OS.
Install a 64-bit Windows® OS if you want to install 4GB or more on the
motherboard.
1-13
•
This motherboard does not support DIMMs made up of 512 megabits (Mb) chips or
less.
•
Memory modules with memory frequency higher than 2133 MHz and its
corresponding timing or the loaded X.M.P. Profile is not the JEDEC memory
standard. The stability and compatibility of these memory modules depend on the
CPU’s capabilities and other installed devices.
•
The maximum 64GB memory capacity can be supported with 16GB or above
DIMMs. ASUS will update the memory QVL once the DIMMs are available in the
market.
•
The default memory operation frequency is dependent on its Serial Presence Detect
(SPD), which is the standard way of accessing information from a memory module.
Under the default state, some memory modules for overclocking may operate at a
lower frequency than the vendor-marked value. To operate at the vendor-marked
or at a higher frequency, refer to section 2.4 Ai Tweaker menu for manual memory
frequency adjustment.
•
For system stability, use a more efficient memory cooling system to support a full
memory load (4 DIMMs) or overclocking condition.

Expansion slots
In the future, you may need to install expansion cards. The following sub‑sections describe
the slots and the expansion cards that they support.
Unplug the power cord before adding or removing expansion cards. Failure to do so may
cause you physical injury and damage motherboard components.
1.6.1
Installing an expansion card
To install an expansion card:
1.
Before installing the expansion card, read the documentation that came with it and
make the necessary hardware settings for the card.
2.
Remove the system unit cover (if your motherboard is already installed in a chassis).
3.
Remove the bracket opposite the slot that you intend to use. Keep the screw for later
use.
4.
Align the card connector with the slot and press firmly until the card is completely
seated on the slot.
5.
Secure the card to the chassis with the screw you removed earlier.
6.
Replace the system cover.
1.6.2
Configuring an expansion card
After installing the expansion card, configure it by adjusting the software settings.
1.
Turn on the system and change the necessary BIOS settings, if any. See Chapter 2 for
information on BIOS setup.
2.
Assign an IRQ to the card.
3.
Install the software drivers for the expansion card.
When using PCI cards on shared slots, ensure that the drivers support “Share IRQ” or that
the cards do not need IRQ assignments. Otherwise, conflicts will arise between the two PCI
groups, making the system unstable and the card inoperable.
1.6.3
PCI slots

Jumpers
Clear RTC RAM (3-pin CLRTC)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can
clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing
the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in
CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords.

F1A55 R2.0 Clear RTC RAM
To erase the RTC RAM:
1.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3
for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
3.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4.
Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to reenter data.
ASUS F1A55 R2.0
1-21
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default
position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!
•
If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper
again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After clearing the CMOS, reinstall the
battery.
•
You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking. For
system failure due to overclocking, use the CPU Parameter Recall (C.P.R.) feature.
Shut down and reboot the system, then the BIOS automatically resets parameter
settings to default values.

If you intend to use a PSU with 20-pin and 4-pin power plugs, ensure that the 20-pin
power plug can provide at least 15 A on +12 V and that the PSU has a minimum
power rating of 300W. The system may become unstable or may not boot up if the
power is inadequate.
•
DO NOT forget to connect the 4-pin ATX +12V power plug. Otherwise, the system will
not boot up.
•
We recommend that you use a PSU with higher power output when configuring a
system with more power-consuming devices or when you intend to install additional
devices. The system may become unstable or may not boot up if the power is
inadequate.
•
If you are uncertain about the minimum power supply requirement for your system,
refer to the Recommended Power Supply Wattage Calculator at http://support.asus.

Onboard switch
Onboard switches allow you to fine-tune performance when working on a bare or opencase system. This is ideal for overclockers and gamers who continually change settings to
enhance system performance.
MemOK! switch
Installing DIMMs that are incompatible with the motherboard may cause system boot
failure, and cause the DRAM_LED near the MemOK! to switch lights continuously.
Press and hold the MemOK! switch until the DRAM_LED starts blinking to begin
automatic memory compatibility tuning for successful boot.

Refer to section 1.12 Onboard LEDs for the exact location of the DRAM_LED.
•
The DRAM_LED also lights up when the DIMM is not properly installed. Turn off the
system and reinstall the DIMM before using the MemOK! function.
•
The MemOK! switch does not function under a Windows® OS environment.
•
During the tuning process, the system loads and tests failsafe memory settings. It
takes about 30 seconds for the system to test one set of failsafe settings. If the test
fails, the system reboots and tests the next set of failsafe settings. The blinking speed
of the DRAM_LED increases, indicating different test processes.
•
Due to memory tuning requirements, the system automatically reboots when each
timing set is tested. If the installed DIMMs still fail to boot after the whole tuning
process, the DRAM_LED lights up continuously. Replace the DIMMs with ones
recommended in the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists) in this user manual or on
the ASUS website at www.asus.com.
•
If you turn off the computer and replace DIMMs during the tuning process, the system
continues memory tuning after turning on the computer. To stop memory tuning, turn
off the computer and unplug the power cord for about 5–10 seconds.
•
If your system fail to boot due to BIOS overclocking, press the MemOK! switch to boot
and load BIOS default settings. A message will appear during POST reminding you
that the BIOS has been restored to its default settings.
•
We recommend that you download and update to the latest BIOS version from the
ASUS website at www.asus.com after using the MemOK! function.
