CPU
The VIA EPIA Mini-ITX Mainboard includes an embedded VIA Eden
Processor or VIA C3TM E-Series Processor. Two fan connectors (Fan 1 &
Fan 2) are provided on the mainboard, alllowing for the connection of a
CPU fan and an additional system case fan.
The VIA C3TM E-Series Processor
With low power consumption and advanced thermal dissipation properties,
the embedded VIA C3TM E-Series requires only a small fan to guarantee
performance and reliability. Ensure that the CPU Fan Connector is
correctly installed, as displayed below.

Memory Installation
The VIA EPIA Mini-ITX Mainboard provides two 168-pin DIMM slots for
PC 100/133 SDRAM memory modules. To operate properly, at least one
module must be installed.
DIMM 1 & DIMM 2
SDRAM Module Installation Procedures
1.) Push the white retaining latches at either end of the DIMM slot
outwards.
2.) Align the SDRAM module with the corresponding notches on the
DIMM slot. The modules will only fit if placed in the correct position.
2.) With both hands, press the SDRAM module down into the DIMM slot
so that the white retaining latches rotate up and secure the module in
place (see picture below).

Connectors
The VIA EPIA Mini-ITX Mainboard provides the following connectors:
IDE Connectors
The two PCI IDE connectors (IDE 1 & IDE 2) support Ultra DMA 33/66/
100 modes. IDE 1 is the primary IDE connector and IDE 2 is the secondary
IDE connector. Both IDE 1 and IDE2 can connect a master and a slave
drive, allowing a maximum of four seperate devices, such as a HDD, CDROM or CD-RW, to be connected.
Also, a Disk on Module can be connected directly to one of the IDE
connectors.
These connectors utilize the provided IDE cable.
IDE 1 IDE 2
NB: If you install two HDDs on one IDE cable, you must set
the second drive to slave mode by setting its jumper on the
HDD. Please refer to the HDD documentation supplied by the
HDD vendor for correct jumper setiing instructions.
