2. HARDWARE SETUP
2.1 Getting Started
IMPORTANT: Due to Pentium 4 CPU’s power consumption requirement, an
ATX12V power supply is recommended for this motherboard. For typical system
configurations, an ATX12V power supply that can supply at least 230W and at least
8.5A on the +12V lead is required. For heavily-loaded configurations, an ATX12V
power supply that can supply at least 300W is required.
Before using your computer, you must complete the following steps:
• Check Motherboard Settings
• Install Memory Modules
• Install the Central Processing Unit (CPU)
• Install Expansion Cards
• Connect Ribbon Cables, Panel Wires, and Power Supply
WARNING! Computer motherboards and expansion cards contain very delicate
Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To protect them against damage from static electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you work on your computer.
1. Unplug your computer when working on the inside.
2. Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do
not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal
object, such as the power supply case.
3. Hold components by the edges and try not to touch the IC chips, leads or connectors, or other components.
4. Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the
component whenever the components are separated from the system.
5. Ensure that the ATX power supply is switched off before you plug in or
remove the ATX power connector on the motherboard.
WARNING! Make sure that you unplug your power supply when adding or
removing system components. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to
your motherboard, peripherals, and/or components. The onboard LED when
lit acts as a reminder that the system is in suspend or soft-off mode and not
powered OFF.

IMPORTANT
1. The memory configuration of channel A (RIMMA1 and RIMMA2) and channel B (RIMMB1 and RIMMB2) must be identical (see below).
2. C-RIMMs (Continuity RIMM) must be used to complete the sockets that are
not populated by RDRAMs. A C-RIMM is necessary to avoid breaking the
signal lines, which are a serial connection in a Rambus interface, such as
used in this motherboard. This assures the electrical integrity of a Rambus
interface.
3. When C-RIMMs are required, it is recommended that they be inserted into
RIMMA2 and RIMMB2.

WARNING! Be sure that there is sufficient air circulation across the processor’s
heatsink by regularly checking that your CPU fan is working. Without sufficient
circulation, the processor could overheat and damage both the processor and the
motherboard. You may install an auxiliary fan, if necessary.
NOTE: Do not forget to set the correct Bus Frequency and Multiple (frequency
multiple setting is available only on unlocked processors) for your Socket 423 processor or else boot-up may not be possible. Socket 423 processors provide internal
thermal sensing so that a socket mounted thermal resistor is not needed.

2.4 Expansion Cards
WARNING! Unplug your power supply when adding or removing expansion
cards or other system components. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to
both your motherboard and expansion cards (see 3.3 Hardware Setup Procedure for more information).
2.4.1 Expansion Card Installation Procedure
1. Read the documentation for your expansion card and make any necessary hardware or software settings for your expansion card, such as jumpers.
2. Remove your computer system’s cover and the bracket plate on the slot you
intend to use. Keep the bracket for possible future use.
3. Carefully align the card’s connectors and press firmly.
4. Secure the card on the slot with the screw you removed above.
5. Replace the computer system’s cover.
6. Set up the BIOS if necessary
(such as IRQ xx Used By ISA: Yes in PNP AND PCI SETUP)
7. Install the necessary software drivers for your expansion card.
2.4.2 Assigning IRQs for Expansion Cards
Some expansion cards need an IRQ to operate. Generally, an IRQ must be exclusively assigned to one use. In a standard design, there are 16 IRQs available but
most of them are already in use, leaving 6 IRQs free for expansion cards. If your
motherboard has PCI audio onboard, an additional IRQ will be used. If your motherboard also has MIDI enabled, another IRQ will be used, leaving 4 IRQs free.

2.5 Onboard Connectors
1) Primary (Blue) / Secondary IDE Connectors (Two 40-1pin IDE)
These connectors support the provided IDE hard disk ribbon cable. Connect the
cable’s blue connector to the motherboard’s primary (recommended) or secondary IDE connector, and then connect the gray connector to your UltraDMA/100
slave device (hard disk drive) and the black connector to your UltraDMA/100
master device. It is recommended that non-UltraDMA/100 devices be connected
to the secondary IDE connector. If you install two hard disks, you must configure the second drive to Slave mode by setting its jumper accordingly. Please
refer to your hard disk documentation for the jumper settings. BIOS now supports specific device bootup (see 4.6 Boot Menu). (Pin 20 is removed to prevent inserting in the wrong orientation when using ribbon cables with pin
20 plugged).
TIP: You may configure two hard disks to be both Masters with two ribbon
cables – one for the primary IDE connector and another for the secondary IDE
connector. You may install one operating system on an IDE drive and another on
a SCSI drive and select the boot disk through 4.6 Boot Menu.
