2.3 Central Processing Unit (CPU)
The motherboard comes with a surface mount LGA775 socket designed for
the Intel® Xeon® 3000/3200 or Pentium D series processors in the 775land package.
• Upon purchase of the motherboard, make sure 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 shoulders the repair cost 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 LGA775 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.
2.3.1 Installing the CPU

2.3.2 Installing the CPU heatsink
The Intel ® Xeon 3200/3000 or Pentium D processors require an Intel
certified or ASUS qualified heatsink to ensure optimum thermal condition
and performance.
When you buy a boxed Intel CPU, the package includes the heatsink, fan,
retention brackets, screws, thermal grease, installation manual, and other
items that are necessary for CPU installation.
• Make sure that you have applied the thermal grease to the top of
the CPU before installing the heatsink and fan.
• Refer to the installation manual that came with the CPU package for
details on heatsink/fan assembly and installation.
• For installation instruction of bundled ASUS qualified CPU heatsink
and fan assembly, refer to section 3.2.
To install the CPU heatsink and fan:

4.2 BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable Low-Pin Count (LPC) chip that
you can update using the provided utility described in section “4.1 Managing and updating your BIOS.”
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring your system, or prompted to“Run Setup.” This section explains
how to configure your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you can change
the configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you can
enable the security password feature or change the power management
settings. This requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup
program so that the computer can recognize these changes and record
them in the CMOS RAM of the LPC chip.
The LPC chip on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start
up the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this
program. Press <Del> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter the
Setup utility; otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, reboot the system by doing any of
the following procedures:
• Restart using the OS standard shut-down procedure.
• Press <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<Del> simultaneously.
• Press the reset button on the system chassis.
• Press the power button to turn the system off then back on.
Using the power button, reset button, or the <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<Del> keys
to force reset from a running operating system can cause damage to
your data or system. We recommend to always shut-down the system
properly from the operating system.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being
a menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus
and make your selections from the available options using the navigation
keys.
• The default BIOS settings for this motherboard apply for most
conditions to ensure optimum performance. If the system becomes
unstable after changing any BIOS settings, load the default settings
to ensure system compatibility and stability. Select the Load Default
Settings item under the Exit Menu. See section “5.8 Exit Menu.”
• The BIOS setup screens shown in this section are for reference
purposes only, and may not exactly match what you see on your
screen.
• Visit the ASUS website (www.asus.com) to download the latest BIOS
file for this motherboard.

Chapter 4: BIOS setup
This chapter provides instructions for
setting up, creating and configuring
RAID sets using the available utilities.
RAID Configuration
Chapter 5
5.1 RAID configurations
The server system/motherboard comes with the Intel® ICH7R and the LSI
Logic Embedded SATA RAID technology built-in the Intel® ICH7R SouthBridge
chipset that allows you to configure IDE and Serial ATA hard disk drives as
RAID sets. The motherboard supports the following RAID configurations:
5.1.1 RAID definitions
RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and
write data in parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same
work as a single drive but at a sustained data transfer rate, double that of
a single disk alone, thus improving data access and storage. Use of two new
identical hard disk drives is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from
one drive to a second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management
software directs all applications to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of the data in the other drive. This RAID configuration provides
data protection and increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use two
new drives or use an existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new
drive must be of the same size or larger than the existing drive.
Intel® Matrix Storage. The Intel® Matrix Storage technology supported by the
ICH7R chip allows you to create a RAID 0 and a RAID 1 set using only two
identical hard disk drives. The Intel® Matrix Storage technology creates two
partitions on each hard disk drive to create a virtual RAID 0 and RAID 1 sets.
This technology also allows you to change the hard disk drive partition size
without losing any data.
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a created RAID set, copy first the RAID driver from the support CD to a floppy
disk before you install an operating system to the selected hard disk
drive. Refer to section “6.1 RAID driver installation” for details.
5-
Chapter 5: RAID Configuration
5.1.2 Installing Serial ATA hard disks
The motherboard supports Serial ATA hard disk drives. For optimal performance, install identical drives of the same model and capacity when creating
a disk array.
To install the SATA hard disks for a RAID configuration:
1. Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays.
2. Connect the SATA signal cables.
3. Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive.
5.1.3 Setting the RAID item in BIOS
You must set the RAID item in the BIOS Setup before you can create a RAID
set(s). To do this:
1. Enter the BIOS Setup during POST.
2. Go to the Main Menu, select IDE Configuration, then press <Enter>.
3. Select the item Configure SATA As, then press <Enter> to display the
configuration options.
4. Select RAID from the Configure SATA As item options, then press <Enter>.
5. Select the item Onboard Serial-ATA BOOTROM, press <Enter>, then
select Enabled from the options.
6. Save your changes, then exit the BIOS Setup.
Refer to Chapter 4 for details on entering and navigating through the
BIOS Setup.
5.1.4 RAID configuration utility
Depending on the RAID_SEL1 jumper setting and the operating system, you
can select a utility to create a RAID set. Refer to section “3.2 Jumpers” for
details on the RAID_SEL1 jumper settings.
Use the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager to create a RAID 0 or RAID 1 set
under Windows® 2000/2003 Server/XP operating system.
Use the LSI Logic Embedded SATA RAID Setup Utility to create a RAID 0 or
RAID 1 under Windows® 2000/2003 Server or Red Hat® Enterprise ver. 3.0
operating system.
Refer to the succeeding sections for details on how to use the RAID configuration utilities.
