INTRODUCTION
Introduction
Product Description
The MI945X Mini ITX board incorporates the Mobile Intel® GM45 Express
Chipset for Embedded Computing, consisting of the Intel® GM45 Graphic
Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) and Intel® I/O Controller Hub (ICH9-M), an
optimized integrated graphics solution with a 1066MHz and 800MHz front-side
bus. Dimensions of the board are 170mm x 170mm.
The integrated powerful 3D graphics engine, based on Intel® Graphics Media
Accelerator X3500 (Intel® GMA X3500) architecture, operates at core speeds of
up to 533 MHz. It features a low-power design, is validated with the Intel® Core
2 Duo processors on 45nm process. With dual channel DDR3 800/1066MHz
two SODIMM sockets on board, the board supports up to 4GB of system
memory.
Intel® Graphics supports a unique intelligent memory management scheme
called Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT). DVMT handles diverse
applications by providing the maximum (384MB) availability of system memory
for general computer usage, while supplying additional graphics memory when a
3D-intensive application requests it. The Intel GMA X3500 graphics
architecture also takes advantage of the high-performance Intel processor. Intel
GMA X3500 graphics supports Dual Independent Display technology.
The main features of the board are:

Supports Intel® Mobile Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad Processor (Penryn)

Supports up to 2.93GHz, 1066MHz/800MHz FSB

Two DDR3 SoDIMM, Max. 4GB memory

Onboard Gigabit PHY and Intel PCI-Express Gigabit LAN

Intel® GM45 Express VGA for CRT / LVDS

4x SATA, 8x USB 2.0, 4x COM, Watchdog timer

1x Mini PCI-E (Mini Card), 1x PCI-E (x16) slots

INSTALLATIONS
Installing the CPU
The MI945X board supports a Socket M socket for Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo,
Intel® Celeron mobile processors. The processor socket comes with a
screw to secure the processor. As shown in the left picture below, loosen
the screw first before inserting the processor. Place the processor into the
socket by making sure the notch on the corner of the CPU corresponds
with the notch on the inside of the socket. Once the processor has slide
into the socket, fasten the screw. Refer to the figures below.
NOTE: Ensure that the CPU heat sink and the CPU top surface are in
total contact to avoid CPU overheating problem that would
cause your system to hang or be unstable.

INSTALLATIONS
Installing the Memory
The MI945X board supports two DDR3 memory socket for a maximum
total memory of 4GB in DDR3 memory type.
Installing and Removing Memory Modules
To install the DDR3 modules, locate the memory slot on the board and
perform the following steps:
1. Hold the DDR3 module so that the key of the DDR3 module aligned
with that on the memory slot.
2. Gently push the DDR3 module in an upright position until the clips of
the slot close to hold the DDR3 module in place when the DDR3
module touches the bottom of the slot.
3. To remove the DDR3 module, press the clips with both hands.

BIOS SETUP
BIOS Introduction
The Award BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) installed in your
computer system’s ROM supports Intel processors. The BIOS provides
critical low-level support for a standard device such as disk drives, serial
ports and parallel ports. It also adds virus and password protection as
well as special support for detailed fine-tuning of the chipset controlling
the entire system.
BIOS Setup
The Award BIOS provides a Setup utility program for specifying the
system configurations and settings. The BIOS ROM of the system stores
the Setup utility. When you turn on the computer, the Award BIOS is
immediately activated. Pressing the <Del> key immediately allows you
to enter the Setup utility. If you are a little bit late pressing the <Del> key,
POST (Power On Self Test) will continue with its test routines, thus

Note:
If the system cannot boot after making and saving system

the CMOS settings that resets your system to its default.
Warning: It is strongly recommended that you avoid making any
changes to the chipset defaults. These defaults have been
carefully chosen by both Award and your system
manufacturer to provide the absolute maximum performance
and reliability. Changing the defaults could cause the system

Standard CMOS Setup
“Standard CMOS Setup” choice allows you to record some basic
hardware configurations in your computer system and set the system
clock and error handling. If the motherboard is already installed in a
working system, you will not need to select this option. You will need to
run the Standard CMOS option, however, if you change your system
hardware configurations, the onboard battery fails, or the configuration
stored in the CMOS memory was lost or damaged.

IDE DMA transfer access
This field, by default, is enabled
On-chip Primary/Secondary PCI IDE
The integrated peripheral controller contains an IDE interface with
support for two IDE channels. Select Enabled to activate each channel
separately.
IDE Primary/Secondary Master/Slave PIO
These fields allow your system hard disk controller to work faster. Rather
than have the BIOS issue a series of commands that transfer to or from
the disk drive, PIO (Programmed Input/Output) allows the BIOS to
communicate with the controller and CPU directly.
The system supports five modes, numbered from 0 (default) to 4, which
primarily differ in timing. When Auto is selected, the BIOS will select the
best available mode.
IDE Primary/Secondary Master/Slave UDMA
These fields allow your system to improve disk I/O throughput to

The HDD, FDD, COM, LPT Ports, and PCI PIRQ are I/O events that can
prevent the system from entering a power saving mode or can awaken the

of the operating system, it signals this by causing an IRQ to occur. When
the operating system is ready to respond to the request, it interrupts itself
and performs the service.

C. Watchdog Timer Configuration
The WDT is used to generate a variety of output signals after a user
programmable count. The WDT is suitable for use in the prevention of
system lock-up, such as when software becomes trapped in a deadlock.
Under these sorts of circumstances, the timer will count to zero and the
selected outputs will be driven. Under normal circumstance, the user will
restart the WDT at regular intervals before the timer counts to zero.
