UltraPerformance! Onboard IDE Bus Master controller with two connectors
that support four IDE devices in two channels. Supports UltraDMA/66, UltraDMA/
33 (IDE DMA Mode 2), PIO Modes 3 & 4, and supports Enhanced IDE devices,
such as Tape Backup, CD-ROM, CD-R/RW, and LS-120 drives.
Double or Quadruple the IDE Transfer Speed! IDE transfers using UltraDMA/
33 Bus Master IDE can handle rates up to 33MB/s and up to 66MB/s using
UltraDMA/66 technology. The best of all is that these new technology is compatible with existing ATA-2 IDE specifications so there is no need to upgrade
current IDE devices or cables.
Concurrent PCI! Concurrent PCI allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI master buses to memory to CPU.
SDRAM Optimized Performance! ASUS smart series motherboards support the
new generation memory, Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM),
which increases the data transfer rate to 800MB/s max using PC100-compliant
SDRAM.
ACPI Ready! ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) is also implemented on all ASUS smart series motherboards. ACPI provides more Energy
Saving Features for future operating systems (OS) supporting OS Direct Power
Management (OSPM) functionality. With these features implemented in the OS,
PCs can be ready around the clock, yet satisfy all the energy saving standards.
To fully utilize the benefits of ACPI, an ACPI-supported OS, such as Windows
98, must be used.
Suspend and Go! Suspend-To-RAM (STR) provides maximum power savings
as an alternative to leaving the computer ON and QuickStart™ so that you do
not fall asleep waiting for system bootup. (STR requires OS support and does
not support ISA cards; ISA cards may fail to work coming out of STR mode.)
New Compliancy! Both the BIOS and hardware levels of the motherboard meet
PC’99 compliancy. The new PC’99 requirements for systems and components are
based on the following high-level goals: Support for Plug and Play compatibility
and power management for configuring and managing all system components,
and 32-bit device drivers and installation procedures for Windows 95/98/NT. Colorcoded connectors and descriptive icons make identification easy as required by
PC’99.

Fan Status Monitoring and Alarm! To prevent system overheat and system
damage, the CPU, power supply, and system fans can be monitored for RPM
and failure. All the fans are set for its normal RPM range and alarm thresholds.
Temperature Monitoring and Alert! To prevent system overheat and system
damage, this motherboard supports Socket 370 processor thermal sensing and
auto-protection.
Voltage Monitoring and Alert! System voltage levels are monitored to ensure
stable current to critical motherboard components. Voltage specifications are
more critical for future processors, so monitoring is necessary to ensure proper
system configuration and management.
System Resources Alert! Today’s operating systems such as Windows 98, Windows NT, and OS/2, require much more memory and hard drive space to present
enormous user interfaces and run large applications. The system resource monitor will warn the user before the system resources are used up to prevent possible application crashes. Suggestions will give the user information on managing their limited resources more efficiently.
Dual Function Power Button! Through the BIOS, the power button can be
defined as the “Standby” (a.k.a. Suspend or Sleep) button or as the Soft-Off (see
ATX Power Switch Lead in 3.8 External Connectors for more information)
button. Regardless of the setting, pushing the power button for more than 4
seconds will enter the Soft-Off mode.
Remote Ring On (requires modem)! This allows a computer to be turned on
remotely through an internal or external modem. With this benefit on-hand, users
can access any information from their computers from anywhere in the world!
Message LED (requires ACPI OS support)! Chassis LEDs now act as information providers. Through the way a particular LED illuminates, the user can
determine the stage the computer is in. A simple glimpse provides useful information to the user.
Peripheral Power Up! Keyboard and/or CIR power up can be enabled or disabled through BIOS setup to allow the computer to be powered ON using your
keyboard and/or Consumer IR device.

WARNING! Computer motherboards and expansion cards contain very delicate
Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To protect them against damage from static electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you work on your computer.
1. Unplug your computer when working on the inside.
2. Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do
not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal
object, such as the power supply case.
3. Hold components by the edges and try not to touch the IC chips, leads or connectors, or other components.
4. Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the
component whenever the components are separated from the system.

8) CPU External Frequency Setting (DSW)
This option tells the clock generator what frequency to send to the CPU, DRAM,
and the PCI bus. This allows the selection of the CPU’s External frequency. The
CPU External Frequency multiplied by the Frequency Multiple equals the CPU’s
Internal frequency (the advertised CPU speed). NOTE: You may set the memory
speed independently from the CPU External Frequency. Depending on your
memory type PC66 (66MHz) or PC100 (100MHz), select the appropriate
“SDRAM” speed along with the appropriate “CPU” speed.
IMPORTANT: Only 66MHz CPU and 100MHz SDRAM should be used on
this motherboard with current 66MHz Socket 370 processors. Other settings are
for experienced users only. When JumperFree mode is enabled, use BIOS setup
in place of these switches (see CPU Speed in 4.4 Advanced Menu). Only selected switches are illustrated, see the next page for a complete frequency listing.
NOTE: In JumperFree mode, all dip switches (DSW) must be set to OFF.
150MHz
150MHz
(JumperFree Mode)
NOTE: Frequency Multiple settings are not available here because usually
Socket 370 processors have locked Frequency Multiples. If your Socket 370
processor does not have a locked Frequency Multiple, you must use CPU
Core:Bus Freq. Multiple in 4.4 Advanced Menu of the BIOS setup to set the
Frequency Multiple. If the Frequency Multiple is locked, setting the Frequency
Multiple in BIOS setup will have no effect.
WARNING! CPU frequencies above 66MHz exceed the specifications for current Celeron processors and are not guaranteed to be stable. For Coppermine processors, CPU frequencies other than the recommended bus frequencies are not
guaranteed to be stable. Premature wearing of the processor may result when
overclocking. Be sure that the DIMM you use can handle the specified SDRAM
MHz or else bootup will not be possible.

3. HARDWARE SETUP
3.6 Central Processing Unit (CPU)
The motherboard provides a ZIF Socket 370. The CPU that came with the motherboard should have a fan attached to it to prevent overheating. If this is not the case,
then purchase a fan before you turn on your system.
WARNING! Be sure that there is sufficient air circulation across the processor’s
heatsink by regularly checking that your CPU fan is working. Without sufficient
circulation, the processor could overheat and damage both the processor and the
motherboard. You may install an auxiliary fan, if necessary.
3. H/W SETUP
CPU
To install a CPU, first turn off your system and remove its cover. Locate the ZIF
socket and open it by first pulling the lever sideways away from the socket then
upwards to a 90-degree angle. Insert the CPU with the correct orientation as shown.
The notched corner (or corner with gold arrow) should point towards the end of the
lever. Because the CPU has a corner pin for two of the four corners, the CPU will
only fit in the orientation as shown. The picture is for reference only; you should
have a CPU fan that covers the face of the CPU. With the added weight of the CPU
fan, no force is required to insert the CPU. Once completely inserted, close the
socket’s lever while holding down the CPU.
NOTE: Do not forget to set the correct Bus Frequency and Multiple (frequency
multiple setting is available only on unlocked processors) for your Socket 370 processor or else boot-up may not be possible. Socket 370 processors provide internal
thermal sensing so that a socket mounted thermal resistor is not needed.
CAUTION! Be careful not to scrape the motherboard when mounting a clampstyle processor fan or else damage may occur to the motherboard.

3.7.2 Assigning IRQs for Expansion Cards
Some expansion cards need an IRQ to operate. Generally, an IRQ must be exclusively assigned to one use. In a standard design, there are 16 IRQs available but
most of them are already in use, leaving 6 IRQs free for expansion cards. If your
motherboard has PCI audio onboard, an additional IRQ will be used. If your motherboard also has MIDI enabled, another IRQ will be used, leaving 4 IRQs free.
The following table lists the default IRQ assignments for standard PC devices. Use

Expansion Cards
IMPORTANT: If using PCI cards on shared slots, make sure that the drivers support
“Share IRQ” or that the cards do not need IRQ assignments. Conflicts will arise
between the two PCI groups that will make the system unstable or cards inoperable.
Both ISA and PCI expansion cards may require IRQs. System IRQs are available to
cards installed in the ISA expansion bus first, then any remaining IRQs are available
to PCI cards. Currently, there are two types of ISA cards.
The original ISA expansion card design, now referred to as “Legacy” ISA cards,
requires that you configure the card’s jumpers manually and then install it in any
available slot on the ISA bus. To see a map of your used and free IRQs in Windows
98, the Control Panel icon in My Computer, contains a System icon, which gives
you a Device Manager tab. Double-clicking on a specific hardware device gives
you the Resources tab which shows the Interrupt number and address. Double-click
Computer to see all the interrupts and addresses for your system. Make sure that no
two devices use the same IRQ or your computer will experience problems when
those two devices are in use at the same time.
To simplify this process, this motherboard complies with the Plug and Play (PnP)
specification which was developed to allow automatic system configuration whenever a PnP-compliant card is added to the system. For PnP cards, IRQs are assigned
automatically from those available.
If the system has both Legacy and PnP ISA cards installed, IRQs are assigned to
PNP cards from those not used by Legacy cards. The PCI and PNP configuration of
the BIOS setup utility can be used to indicate which IRQs are being used by Legacy
cards. For older Legacy cards that does not work with the BIOS, you can contact
your vendor for an ISA Configuration Utility.
An IRQ number is automatically assigned to PCI expansion cards after those used
by Legacy and PnP ISA cards. In the PCI bus design, the BIOS automatically assigns an IRQ to a PCI slot that has a card in it that requires an IRQ. To install a PCI
card, you need to set something called the INT (interrupt) assignment. Since all the
PCI slots on this motherboard use an INTA #, be sure that the jumpers on your PCI
cards are set to INT A.
29
3. HARDWARE SETUP
3.7.3 Assigning DMA Channels for ISA Cards
Some ISA cards, both legacy and PnP, may also need to use a DMA (Direct Memory
Access) channel. DMA assignments for this motherboard are handled the same way
as the IRQ assignment process described earlier. To select a DMA channel, see PCI/
PNP ISA DMA Resource Exclusion in 4.4.3 PCI Configuration. NOTE: The onboard audio by default uses DMA1.
IMPORTANT: To avoid conflicts, reserve the necessary IRQs and DMAs for
legacy ISA cards (see PCI/PNP ISA IRQ Resource Exclusion and PCI/PNP
DMA IRQ Resource Exclusion in 4.4.3 PCI Configuration). Choose Yes in
IRQ xx Used By ISA and DMA x Used By ISA for those IRQs and DMAs you
want to reserve).
3.7.4 Audio Modem Riser (AMR) Slot
3. H/W SETUP
Expansion Cards
This connector supports a specially designed audio and/or modem card called an AMR.
Main processing is done through software and controlled by the motherboard’s Intel I/
O Controller Hub (ICH). This provides an upgradeable audio and/or modem solution
at an incredibly low cost. There are two types of AMR, one defined as primary and
another defined as secondary. This motherboard uses the primary channel so that a
secondary AMR can coexist without the need to disable the onboard CODEC. The
motherboard’s onboard CODEC must be disabled when using a primary AMR.
NOTE: An AMR is not included with this motherboard.

These connectors support cooling fans of 350mA (4.2 Watts) or less. Orientate
the fans so that the heat sink fins allow airflow to go across the onboard heat
sink(s) instead of the expansion slots. Depending on the fan manufacturer, the
wiring and plug may be different. The red wire should be positive, while the
black should be ground. Connect the fan’s plug to the board taking into consideration the polarity of the connector.
NOTE: The “Rotation” signal is to be used only by a specially designed fan with
rotation signal. The Rotations per Minute (RPM) can be monitored using ASUS
PC Probe Utility or Intel LDCM Utility (see 6. SOFTWARE REFERENCE).
WARNING! The CPU and/or motherboard will overheat if there is no airflow
across the CPU and onboard heatsinks. Damage may occur to the motherboard
and/or the CPU fan if these pins are incorrectly used. These are not jumpers,
do not place jumper caps over these pins.

5.1 Operating Systems
Although ASUS motherboards passed testing on several operating systems, the operating system shown in these sections will be that of Microsoft’s Windows 98. You
should always use the latest operating system and updates when using new hardware to ensure full compliancy. For Windows 95, you must use OSR 2.0 or later. For
Windows NT 4.0, you must use Service Pack 3.0 or later.
5.2 Starting Windows For the First Time
When you start Windows 98 for the first time after installing your motherboard,
Windows will detect all plug-and-play devices. You can either follow the Add New
Hardware Wizard to install the device drivers or click Cancel. When prompted to
restart, select No and then follow the normal setup procedures later in this section.
IMPORTANT: Selecting No for the initial restart prompt is a necessary step
because Windows may load an older display driver that is incompatible with the
integrated VGA. Always use the driver available on the ASUS Support CD or an
applicable driver update from your ASUS vendor or from the ASUS web site.
