Chapter 2. Hardware Setup
Before the Installation: Turn off the power supply switch (fully turn off the +5V standby power), or
disconnect the power cord before installing or unplugging any connectors or add-on cards. Failing to do
so may cause the motherboard components or add-on cards to malfunction or damaged.
2-1. Install The Motherboard
Most computer chassis have a base with many mounting holes to allow motherboard to be securely
attached on and at the same time, prevented from short circuits. There are two ways to attach the
motherboard to the chassis base:
1. use with studs
2. or use with spacers
In principle, the best way to attach the board is to
use with studs. Only if you are unable to do this
should you attach the board with spacers. Line up
the holes on the board with the mounting holes on
the chassis. If the holes line up and there are
screw holes, you can attach the board with studs.
If the holes line up and there are only slots, you
can only attach with spacers. Take the tip of the
spacers and insert them into the slots. After doing
this to all the slots, you can slide the board into
position aligned with slots. After the board has been positioned, check to make sure everything is OK
before putting the chassis back on.
ATTENTION: To prevent shorting the PCB circuit, please REMOVE the metal studs or spacers if they
are already fastened on the chassis base and are without mounting-holes on the motherboard to align with.

2-2. Install CPU and Heatsink
This motherboard provides a ZIF (Zero Insertion
Force) Socket 754 to install AMD Socket 754
CPU. The CPU you bought should contain with a
kit of heatsink, cooling fan, retention frame and
blackplate. If that’s not the case, buy one specially
designed for Socket 754.
Please refer to the figure shown here to install
CPU and heatsink. (For reference only. Your
Heatsink & Fan Assembly may not be exactly the
same as this one.)
1.
Locate the Socket 754 on this motherboard.
Pull the CPU release lever sideways to
unlatch and then raise it all the way up.
2.
Drop the processor with its pin side down into
the CPU socket. Do not use extra force to
insert CPU; it only fits in one direction. Close
the CPU release lever.
3.
Align the Backplate Standoffs with the
mounting holes on motherboard. Position the
backplate onto motherboard.
4.
Place the Retention Frame onto the
motherboard and align it with the Backplate
Standoffs.
5.
Place heatsink on top of CPU, and make sure
the heatsink fits properly on the retention
frame.
6.
Hook both sides of the Spring Clip onto the
Mounting Tabs of Retention Frame. Tighten
screws until the Spring Clip is fully installed.
7.
Attach the fan connector of Heatsink & Fan
Assembly with the CPU-FAN connector on
the motherboard.
ATTENTION: Do not forget to set the correct
bus frequency and multiple for your processor.

1.
Locate the DIMM slot on the board.
2.
Hold two edges of the DIMM module
carefully, keep away of touching its
connectors.
3.
Align the notch key on the module with the
rib on the slot.
4.
Firmly press the module into the slots until
the ejector tabs at both sides of the slot
automatically snaps into the mounting notch.
Do not force the DIMM module in with extra force as the DIMM module only fit in one direction.
5.
To remove the DIMM modules, push the two ejector tabs on the slot outward simultaneously, and
then pull out the DIMM module.
ATTENTION: Static electricity can damage the electronic components of the computer or optional

(In Europe) http://www.abit.nl
Thank you for choosing ABIT products. ABIT sells all our products through distributors,
resellers and system integrators; we have no direct sales to end-users. Before sending email
for tech support please check with your resellers or integrators if you need any services, they
are the ones who sold you your system and they should know best as to what can be done,
how they serve you is a good reference for future purchases.
We appreciate every customer and would like to provide the best service to you. Providing
fast service to our customers is our top priority. However we receive many phone calls and a
huge amount of email from all over the world. At the present time it is impossible for us to
respond to every single inquiry. Therefore it is quite possible that if you send an email to us
that you may not receive a response.
We have done many compatibility tests and reliability tests to make sure our products have
the best quality and compatibility. In case you need service or technical support, please
understand the constraint we have and always check with the reseller who sold the product
to you first.
To expedite service, we recommend that you follow the procedures outlined below before
contacting us. With your help, we can meet our commitment to provide the best service to the
greatest number of ABIT customers:
1. Check the Manual. It sounds simple but we have taken a lot of care in making a
well-written and thorough manual. It is full of information that doesn't only pertain to
motherboards. The CD-ROM included with your board will have the manual as well as
drivers. If you don't have either one, go to our Program Download Area of the Website or
FTP server.
2. Download latest BIOS, software or drivers. Please go to our Program Download area
on our Website to check to see if you have the latest BIOS. They are developed over
periods of time to fixes bugs or incompatibilities. Also please make sure you have the
latest drivers from your peripheral cards makers!
3. Check the ABIT Technical Terms Guide and FAQ on our Website. We are trying to
expand and make the FAQs more helpful and information rich. Let us know if you have
any suggestions. For hot topics, check out our HOT FAQ!

4. Internet Newsgroups. They are a great source of information and many people there can
offer help. ABIT's Internet News group, alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.abit, is an ideal
forum for the public to exchange information and discuss experiences they have had with
ABIT products. Many times you will see that your question has already been asked before.
This is a public Internet news group and it is reserved for free discussions. Here is a list of
some of the more popular ones:

alt.comp.hardware.pc-homebuilt
5. Ask your reseller. Your ABIT authorized distributor should be able to provide the fastest
solution to your technical problem. We sell our products through distributors who sell to
resellers and stores. Your reseller should be very familiar with your system configuration
and should be able to solve your problem much more efficiently than we could. After all,
your reseller regards you as an important customer who may purchase more products and
who can urge your friends to buy from him or her as well. They integrated and sold the
system to you. They should know best what your system configuration is and your
problem. They should have reasonable return or refund policies. How they serve you is
also a good reference for your next purchase.
6. Contacting ABIT. If you feel that you need to contact ABIT directly you can send email
to the ABIT technical support department. First, please contact the support team for the
branch office closest to you. They will be more familiar with local conditions and
problems and will have better insight as to which resellers offer what products and
services. Due to the huge number of emails coming in every day and other reasons, such
as the time required for problem reproduction, we will not be able to reply to every email.
Please understand that we are selling through distribution channels and don't have the
resources to serve every end-user. However, we will try to do our best to help every
customer. Please also remember that for many of our technical support team English is a
second language, you will have a better chance of getting a helpful answer if your
question can be understood in the first place. Be sure to use very, simple, concise
language that clearly states the problem, avoid rambling or flowery language and always
list your system components. Here is the contact information for our branch offices:

7. RMA Service. If your system has been working but it just stopped, but you have not
installed any new software or hardware recently, it is likely that you have a defective
component. Please contact the reseller from whom you bought the product. You should be
able to get RMA service there.
8. Reporting Compatibility Problems to ABIT. Because of tremendous number of email
messages we receive every day, we are forced to give greater weight to certain types of
messages than to others. For this reason, any compatibility problem that is reported to us,
giving detailed system configuration information and error symptoms will receive the
highest priority. For the other questions, we regret that we may not be able to reply
directly. But your questions may be posted to the Internet news group in order that a
larger number of users can have the benefit of the information. Please check the news
group from time to time.
