are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference
in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
manufacturer’s instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
•
•
•
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Electrical Safety
Safet y Precautions
Safeguards
Observe the following safety precautions when you are connecting
or disconnecting any devices.
Operation Safety
IMPORTANT
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Any operation on this server must be conducted by
certified or experienced engineers.
Before operating your server, carefully read all the
manuals included with the server package.
Before using the server, make sure all cables are correctly
connected and the power cables are not damaged. If any
damage is detected, contact your dealer as soon as
possible.
To avoid short circuits, keep paper clips, screws, and
staples away from connectors, slots, sockets and circuitry.
Before opening the chassis panels, make sure all power
cables are unplugged.
Avoid dust, humidity, and temperature extremes. Place the
server on a stable surface.
If the power supply is broken, do not try to fix it by
yourself. Contact an authorized dealer.
It is recommanded that you wear gloves when assembling
or dissembling the server to protect from cuts and
scrapes.
When the server is powered on, heat sinks and the
surfaces of certain IC devices may be hot. Do not touch
them. Check whether the fans are functioning properly.
Tools Required
You need a Philips (cross) screwdriver and a flat screwdriver to install
or remove the components in the server.

Safet y Precautions
Electrical Safety
IMPORTANT
•
Before installing or removing signal cables, ensure that the
power cables for the system unit and all attached devices
are unplugged.
To prevent electrical shock hazard, disconnect the power
cable from the electrical outlet before relocating the
system.
When adding or removing any additional devices to or from
the system, ensure that the power cables for those devices
are unplugged before the signal cables are connected. If
possible, disconnect all power cables from the existing
system before you add a device.
Use one hand, when possible, to connect or disconnect
signal cables to prevent a possible shock from touching
two surfaces with different electrical potentials.
•
•
•
CAUTION
This product is equipped with a three-wire power cable
and plug for the user’s safety. Use the power cable with
a properly grounded electrical outlet to avoid electrical
shock.
IMPORTANT
Motherboards, adapters, and disk drives are sensitive to
static electricity discharge. These devices are wrapped
in antistatic bags to prevent this damage. Take the
following precautions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
6
If you have an antistatic wrist strap available, use it while
handling the device.
Do not remove the device from the antistatic bag until you
are ready to install the device in the system unit.
With the device still in its antistatic bag, touch it to a metal
frame of the system.
Grasp cards and boards by the edges. Hold drives by the
frame. Avoid touching the solder joints or pins.
If you need to lay the device down while it is out of the
antistatic bag, lay it on the antistatic bag. Before picking it
up again, touch the antistatic bag and the metal frame of
the system unit at the same time.
Handle the devices carefully to prevent permanent
damage.

This section tells how the motherboard is placed into the chassis in
case you need to remove and re-install it in the future.
NOTE
The motherboard and other internal components of the
AP1400R server are already installed as indicated in the
section “Internal Components”. Refer to the motherboard
user’s manual for detailed technical information about the
motherboard.
Placement Direction
When installing the
motherboard, make sure
that you place it into the
chassis correctly. The
edge with the external
ports goes to the back
panel of the chassis.
Back Panel
Motherboard Screws
Place 11 screws in the holes
indicated by circles to
secure the motherboard to
the chassis. Do not
overtighten the screws.
Doing so may damage the
motherboard.
The two holes marked by
solid white circles are for
securing the CPU fan tube.

Central Processing Unit (CPU)
Safeguards
The CUR-DLSR motherboard has two ZIF Socket 370. Each socket
supports one Intel Pentium III processor. The figure below shows the
CPU sockets on the motherboard. (NOTE: The CPU sockets are
underneath the CPU blower tube. Detach the tube to locate the
sockets.)
CPU Socket Locations
Socket for CPU 2
Socket for CPU 1
CPU Orientation
A CPU has a mark (usually a
notch or a gold mark) on one
corner to help you identify the
proper orientation and enable
you to correctly install the CPU.
Match the marked corner of the
CPU with the marked corner on
the socket to avoid damaging
the CPU pins.

Chapter 3: Hardware Setup
Central Processing Unit (CPU)
CPU Installation
1. Unlock the socket by pressing
the lever sideways then lifting
it up to a 90°-100° angle. See
Figure 1.
2. Position the CPU above the
socket such that its notched
or marked corner matches the
socket corner near the end of
the lever, while making sure
that the CPU is parallel to the
socket. See Figure 2.
3. Carefuly insert the CPU into
the socket until it fits in place.
4. When the CPU is in place,
press it firmly on the socket
while you push down the
socket lever to secure the
CPU. The lever clicks on the
socket indicating that it is
locked.

IMPORTANT
The CPU fits only in one orientation. Do not force the CPU
into the socket to prevent bending the pins and damaging
the CPU. If the CPU does not fit completely, check its
orientation or check for bent pins.

CPU Blower and Tube
To maintain the ideal temperature for the CPUs, the chassis includes
a 9-cm CPU blower. The blower has an extended tube directed to
the two CPUs. The blower cable connects to the CPU_FAN2
connector on the motherboard.
CPU Blower and Tube Location
Three screws (indicated by white circles) secure the CPU
blower to the base of the chassis. The blower tube extends
to the CPU area on the motherboard and is secured by
two screws as indicated in the picture by solid white circles.
These two screws have spacers underneath to allow
clearance from the motherboard components.

IMPORTANT
Detach the blower tube by removing the two securing
screws to access the CPU and DIMM sockets.

Chapter 3: Hardware Setup
Cooling Fans
Subdividing the motherboard area and the disk drive area is a metal
bracket that holds the cooling fans. These fans maintain the ideal
temperature for the system memory and the expansion card. The fan
cables connect to CHA_FAN1 and CHA_FAN2 on the motherboard.
A fan fail LED on the front panel indicates if a fan fails while another
LED indicates a thermal failure.

Chapter 3: Hardware Setup
Riser Card / Expansion Card
The motherboard has a 64-bit/33MHz PCI expansion slot. The slot
requires a PCI riser card (P64-1U) to accommodate a PCI expansion
card. The riser card comes with the system package.
The riser card golden fingers connect to the PCI slot on the

SCSI Backplane
The 1-inch high SCSI backplane included in the system supports
three Ultra160 SCSI devices. The backplane design incorporates a
hot-swap feature to allow easy installation of external SCSI hard disks.
The LED connector on the backplane connects to the front panel
LEDs to indicate HDD access, HDD failure, thermal failure, and fan
failure.
Front Side
The front side of the backplane has three 80-pin SCA SCSI
Out connectors available for the SCA SCSI hard disks. The
hard disks are extenally accessible from the front panel.
