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.
2.3.1
•
Your boxed Intel® Pentium® 4 LGA775 processor package should
come with installation instructions for the CPU, fan and heatsink
assembly. If the instructions in this section do not match the CPU
documentation, follow the latter.
•
Upon purchase of the motherboard, make sure that the PnP cap is
on the socket and the socket pins are not bent. Contact your
retailer immediately if the PnP cap is missing, or if you see any
damage to the PnP cap/socket pins/motherboard components.
ASUS will shoulder the cost of repair 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 pins
resulting from incorrect CPU installation/removal, or misplacement/
loss/incorrect removal of the PnP cap.
Installing the CPU
To install a CPU:
1.
Locate the CPU socket on the motherboard.

Installing the CPU heatsink and fan
The Intel® Pentium® 4 LGA775 processor requires a specially designed
heatsink and fan assembly to ensure optimum thermal condition and
performance.
•
When you buy a boxed Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, the package
includes the CPU fan and heatsink assembly. If you buy a CPU
separately, make sure that you use only Intel®-certified
multi-directional heatsink and fan.
•
Your Intel® Pentium® 4 LGA775 heatsink and fan assembly comes in
a push-pin design and requires no tool to install.
•
If you purchased a separate CPU heatsink and fan assembly, make
sure that you have properly applied Thermal Interface Material to the
CPU heatsink or CPU before you install the heatsink and fan
assembly.
Make sure that you have installed the motherboard to the chassis before
you install the CPU fan and heatsink assembly.
To install the CPU heatsink and fan:
1.
Place the heatsink on top of the
installed CPU, making sure that
the four fasteners match the
holes on the motherboard.
Orient the heatsink and fan
assembly such that the CPU
fan cable is closest to the
CPU fan connector.

Memory configurations
You may install 256 MB, 512 MB and 1 GB unbuffered non-ECC DDR DIMMs
into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.
•
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.
•
In dual-channel configurations, install only i d e n t i c a l (the same
type and size) DDR DIMM pairs for each channel.
•
Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum
compatibility, it is recommended that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.
•
Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than
4 GB system memory when you installed four 1 GB DDR memory
modules.

When using PCI cards on shared slots, ensure that the drivers support
“Share IRQ” or that the cards do not need IRQ assignments. Otherwise,
conflicts will arise between the two PCI groups, making the system
unstable and the card inoperable.

Jumpers
Clear RTC RAM (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.
Remove the onboard battery.
3.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the
cap on pins 2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to
pins 1-2.
4.
Re-install the battery.
5.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
6.
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 on CLRTC
jumper default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware 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 firmware hub.
The firmware hub 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, restart the system by pressing
<Ctrl+Alt+Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis.
You can also restart by turning the system off and then back on. Do this
last option only if the first two failed.
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 L o a d
D e f a u l t S e t t i n g s item under the Exit Menu. See section “4.7 Exit
Menu.”

RAID configurations
The motherboard comes with the ULI® M1573 Southbridge RAID
controllers that allow you to configure Serial ATA hard disk drives as RAID
sets. The motherboard supports the following RAID configurations.
R A I D 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.
R A I D 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.
R A I D 0 + 1 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity
(redundancy data) having to be calculated and written. With the RAID 0+1
configuration you get all the benefits of both RAID 0 and RAID 1
configurations. Use four new hard disk drives or use an existing drive and
three new drives for this setup.
J B O D (Spanning) stands for J u s t a B u n c h o f D i s k s and refers to hard
disk drives that are not yet configured as a RAID set. This configuration
stores the same data redundantly on multiple disks that appear as a single
disk on the operating system. Spanning does not deliver any advantage
over using separate disks independently and does not provide fault
tolerance or other RAID performance benefits.
Due to chipset limitation, you cannot configure a RAID 0 set or JBOD
with more than two hard disk drives.
5.4.1
Installing hard disks
The motherboard supports Ultra DMA 133/100/66 and Serial ATA hard
disk drives. For optimal performance, install identical drives of the same
model and capacity when creating a disk array.
Installing Serial ATA (SATA) hard disks
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.
