Central Processing Unit (CPU)
The motherboard comes with a surface mount LGA775 socket designed for
the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor in the 775-land package with 1MB L2
cache. The processor, built on the 90-nanometer manufacturing
technology, supports 800MHz front side bus (FSB), Intel® Hyperthreading
Technology, and core speeds of up to 3.4GHz.
Before installing the CPU, make sure that the cam box is facing towards
you and the load lever is on your left.
To install a CPU:
1.
Locate the LGA775 socket on
the motherboard.
2.
Press the load lever with your
thumb and move it to the left
until it is released from the
retention tab.

This side of the
cam box should
face you.
Remove the cap only after the CPU is installed to prevent bending and
damaging the socket connectors.
3.
Lift the load lever in the
direction of the arrow.
4.
Lift the load plate from the
corner with your thumb.

5.
Position the CPU over the socket, making sure that the gold triangle is
on the bottom-left corner of the socket. The socket alignment key
should fit into the CPU notch.

The CPU fits in only one correct orientation. DO NOT force the CPU into
the socket to prevent bending the connectors on the socket and
damaging the CPU!
6.
Use both thumbs to carefully
push out the PnP cap from the
load plate window.
7.
Close the load plate, then
push the load lever until it
snaps into the retention tab.

System memory
The motherboard comes with four Double Data Rate (DDR) Dual Inline
Memory Module (DIMM) sockets. These sockets support up to 4GB system
memory using 184-pin unbuffered non-ECC 2.6V DDR SDRAM.

Installing DDR DIMMs other than the recommended configurations
may cause memory sizing error or system boot failure. Use any of
the recommended configurations in Table 1.
Install only i d e n t i c a l (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs
using the recommended configurations.
Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB
(Front Side Bus). Refer to Table 2 on the next page.
This motherboard does not support double-sided 16-bit DDR DIMMs.
Do not create a three-DIMM configuration in dual-channel mode. The
third DIMM is ignored in the dual-channel operation.

Follow these steps to install a DIMM.
1.
Unlock a DIMM socket by
pressing the retaining clips
outward.
2.
Align a DIMM on the socket such
that the notch on the DIMM
matches the break on the
socket.
3.
Firmly insert the DIMM into the
socket until the retaining clips
snap back in place and the DIMM
is properly seated.

PCI Express slot
This motherboard has one PCI Express
slot, which supports a 164-pin x16
interface graphics card.
PCI slots
There are three 32-bit PCI slots on
this motherboard. The slots support
PCI cards such as a LAN card, SCSI
card, USB card, and other cards that
comply with PCI specifications.

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.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 2-3 (Normal) to pins 1-2 (Clear
CMOS). Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then
move the cap back to pins 2-3.
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 re-enter data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap from the
default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!

This section describes and illustrates the internal connectors on the
motherboard.
1 . Floppy disk drive connector (34-1 pin FLOPPY)
This connector supports the provided floppy drive ribbon cable. After
connecting one end to the motherboard, connect the other end to the
floppy drive. (Pin 5 is removed to prevent incorrect insertion when using
ribbon cables with pin 5 plug).

This connector supports the provided UltraDMA100/66 IDE hard disk
ribbon cable. Connect the cable’s blue connector to the IDE connector,
then connect the gray connector to the UltraDMA100/66 slave device
(hard disk drive) and the black connector to the UltraDMA100/66 master
device.

Pin 20 on the IDE connector is removed to match the covered hole
on the UltraDMA cable connector. This prevents incorrect orientation
when you connect the cables.
The hole near the blue connector on the UltraDMA100/66 cable is
intentional.

R,, 4-pin ATX12V)
These connectors are for an ATX 12V power supply. The plugs from
the power supply are designed to fit these connectors in only one
orientation. Find the proper orientation and push down firmly until the
connectors completely fit.
In addition to the 24-pin ATXPWR connector, this motherboard
requires that you connect the 4-pin ATX +12V power plug to provide
sufficient power to the CPU.
Make sure that your ATX 12V power supply can provide 8A on the +12V
lead and at least 1A on the +5-volt standby lead (+5VSB). The minimum
recommended wattage is 230W, or 300W for a fully configured system.
The system can become unstable and might experience difficulty
powering up if the power supply is inadequate.
