Power Requirements
2.1 Power Requirements
The AlphaPC 164UX motherboard requires a minimum of a 300 watt power supply.
The power supply must be ATX-compliant.

Caution:
Fan sensor required. The 21164 microprocessor cooling fan must
have a built-in sensor that will drive a signal if the airflow stops. The
sensor is connected to the motherboard connector J35. When the signal
is generated, the speaker generates a tone..
2.2 Environmental Requirements
The 21164 microprocessor is cooled by a small fan blowing directly into the chip’s
heat sink. The AlphaPC 164UX motherboard is designed to run efficiently using
only this fan. Additional fans may be necessary depending upon cabinetry and the
requirements of add-in cards and disk drives.
The AlphaPC 164UX motherboard is specified to run within the environment listed
in Table 2–4.

Physical Parameters
2.3 Physical Parameters
This section has two parts: the first illustrates the distances between the board
mounting holes and the edges of the board; the second shows the vertical clearances
required by the board components at all points within the border of the AlphaPC
164UX.
All holes and board measurements are compliant with the ATX 2.01 specification.
The AlphaPC 164UX exceeds the ATX height indications in two places. The first is
at the location of the 21164 (the 2.5’ region).The second is at the location of the
SCSI connectors(the 1.0’ region to the left of the second PCI slots).
The AlphaPC motherboard is an ATX-size printed wiring board (PWB) with the following dimensions:
•
Length: 30.48 cm (12.0 in ( 0.0005 in)
•
Width: 24.38 cm (9.6 in ( 0.0005 in)
•
Height: 6.86 cm (2.7 in)
The board can be used in certain desktop and deskside systems that have adequate
clearance for the 21164 heat sink and its cooling fan. All ISA and PCI expansion
slots are usable in standard desktop or deskside enclosures.

3.1 CPU Speed Selection (Option 1,2,3, &4)
The clock synthesizer makes it possible to change the frequency of the microprocessor’s clock input without having to change the clock crystal. Simply set the speed
jumpers to adjust the frequency of the microprocessor’s clock. These speed jumpers
are located at J28-1/2 (Option 1), J28-3/4 (Option 2), J28-5/6 (Option 3), and J28-7/8
(Option 4). These four jumpers set speed at power-up as listed in Figure 3–1.

Pins 1 through 84 are on the front side and pins 85 through 168 are on the back side.
The AlphaPC 164UX uses BA1 as both BA1 and ADDR12. Therefore, four-bank DIMMs using
ADDR<11:0> are the maximum size. (Two-bank DIMMs can use ADDR<12:0>.)

Memory and Microprocessor Configuration
For higher system speed or greater throughput, you can upgrade SDRAM memory
by replacing DIMMs with those of greater size.
When configuring or upgrading SDRAM, observe the following rules:
•
Each DIMM must be a 168-bit unbuffered version and have a frequency of
100 MHz.
•
All DIMMs must be of equal size if they are in the same bank.
5.1 Configuring SDRAM Memory
Although not an exhaustive list, Table 5–1 lists the tested SDRAM memory
configurations available.
For a list of vendors who supply components and accessories for the AlphaPC

Note: The following are important items to remember
- in order for the ECC memory feature to work, all DIMMs must be 72bit.
- To populate a bank,you must use 2 matched DIMMs.
5.2 Upgrading SDRAM Memory
You can upgrade memory in the AlphaPC 164UX by adding more DIMMs or
replacing the ones that you have with a greater size. Refer to Figure 2–1 for DIMM
connector locations.
Use the following general guidelines:
1. Observe antistatic precautions. Handle DIMMs only at the edges to prevent
damage.
2. Remove power from the system.
3. Open levers and align the DIMM.
Memory and Microprocessor Configuration
5–3
Increasing Microprocessor Speed
4. Firmly push the module into the connector. Ensure that the DIMM snaps into the
plastic locking levers on both ends.
5. Restore power to the system.
5.3 Increasing Microprocessor Speed
This section describes how to complete the following actions to increase
microprocessor speed:
•
Replace the 21164 microprocessor with an AlphaPC chip that has a higher speed
rating.
•
Reconfigure the CPU speed selection jumpers (J28 Option 1~4).
5.3.1 Preparatory Information
Caution:
Static-Sensitive Component – Due to the sensitive nature of electronic
components to static electricity, anyone handling the microprocessor
must wear a properly grounded antistatic wriststrap. Use of antistatic
mats, ESD approved workstations, or exercising other good ESD practices is recommended.
A 21164 microprocessor with a higher speed rating is available from your local
distributor. See Appendix A for information about supporting products.
When replacing the microprocessor chip, also replace the thermal conducting
GRAFOIL pad. See Appendix A for information about the parts kit, which includes
the heat sink, GRAFOIL pad, two hex nuts, heat-sink clips, 60-mm fan, fan guard,
and four screws.
5.3.2 Required Tools
The following tools are required when replacing the microprocessor chip:
A TS30 manual nut/torque driver (or equivalent) with the following attachments is
required to affix the heat sink and fan to the microprocessor’s IPGA package:
5–4
•
1/4-inch hex bit
•
7/16-inch socket with 1/4-inch hex drive
•
#2 Phillips-head screwdriver bit
Memory and Microprocessor Configuration
Increasing Microprocessor Speed
5.3.3 Removing the 21164 Microprocessor
Remove the microprocessor currently in place at location U55 by performing the
following steps:
1. Unplug the fan power/sensor cable from connector J35 (see Figure 2–1).
2. Remove the four 6-32 X 0.875-inch screws that secure the fan and fan guard to
the heat sink.
3. Remove the fan and fan guard.
4. If the sink/chip/fan clip is used, remove it by unhooking its ends from around the
ZIF socket retainers.
5. Using a 7/16-inch socket, remove the two nuts securing the heat sink to the
microprocessor studs.
6. Remove the heat sink by gently lifting it off the microprocessor.
7. Remove and discard the GRAFOIL heat conduction pad.
8. Thoroughly clean the bottom surface of the heat sink before affixing it to the
new microprocessor.
9. Lift the ZIF socket actuator handle to a full 90° angle.
10. Remove the microprocessor chip by lifting it straight out of the socket.
5.3.4 Installing the 21164 Microprocessor
Install the new microprocessor in location U55 by performing the following steps:
Note:
Install the heat sink only after the microprocessor has been assembled to
the ZIF socket.
1. Observe antistatic precautions.
2. Lift the ZIF socket actuator handle to a full 90° angle.
3. Ensure that all the pins on the microprocessor package are straight.
4. The ZIF socket and microprocessor are keyed to allow for proper installation.
Align the microprocessor, with its missing AD01 pin, with the corresponding
plugged AD01 position on the ZIF socket. Gently lower into position.
5. Close the ZIF socket actuator handle to its locked position.

a. Put the GRAFOIL thermal pad in place. The GRAFOIL pad is used to
improve the thermal conductivity between the chip package and the heat
sink by replacing micro air pockets with a less insulative material. Perform
the following steps to position the GRAFOIL pad:
1. Perform a visual inspection of the package slug to ensure that it is free of
contamination.
2. Wearing clean gloves, pick up the GRAFOIL pad. Do not perform this
with bare hands because skin oils can be transferred to the pad.

3. Place the GRAFOIL pad on the gold-plated slug surface and align it with
the threaded studs.
b. Attach the microprocessor heat sink. The heat-sink material is clear anodized, hot-water-sealed, 6061-T6 aluminum. The nut material is 2011-T3 aluminum (this grade is critical). Perform the following steps to attach the heat
sink:
1. Observe antistatic precautions.
2. Align the heat-sink holes with the threaded studs on the ceramic package.
3. Handle the heat sink by the edges and lower it onto the chip package,
taking care not to damage the stud threads.
4. Set a calibrated torque driver to 20 in-lbs, ±2 in-lbs (2.3 Nm, ±0.2 Nm).
The torque driver should have a mounted 7/16-inch socket.
5. Insert a nut into the 7/16-inch socket, place on one of the studs, and
tighten to the specified torque. Repeat for the second nut.
6. If the sink/chip/fan clip is used, properly install it by positioning it over
the assembly and hooking its ends around the ZIF socket retainers.
c. Attach the heat-sink fan assembly:
1. Place the fan assembly on top of the heat sink, aligning the fan mounting
holes with the corresponding threaded heat-sink holes. Align the fan so
that the fan power/sensor wires exit the fan closest to connector J35 (see
Figure 2–1). Fan airflow must be directed into the heat sink (fan label
facing down toward the heat sink).
2. Place the fan guard on top of the fan. Orient the guard so that the corner
mounting areas lay flush against the heat sink.
3. Secure the fan and fan guard to the heat sink with four 6-32 X 0.875-inch
screws.
4. Plug the fan power/sensor cable into connector J35.
Important: When installing the microprocessor, you must change the frequency of
its clock output by setting the CPU speed selection jumpers (J28 Option
1~4), as described in Section 3.1.

3. Replace the keyboard.
Note:
If you have the network drivers installed, but do not have the AlphaPC
164UX connected to a network, there will be a noticable increase in the
time it takes for NT to start-up after the login. This is caused by the network drivers having to wait for a time out.
