INSTALLATIONS
Installing the CPU
The MB966 board supports an LGA1156 Socket (shown below) for
Intel Clarkdale processors.
To install the CPU, unlock first the socket by pressing the lever
sideways, then lift it up to a 90-degree. Then, position the CPU above the
socket such that the CPU corner aligns with the gold triangle matching
the socket corner with a small triangle. Carefully insert the CPU into the
socket and push down the lever to secure the CPU. Then, install the heat
sink and fan.
NOTE: Ensure that the CPU heat sink and the CPU top surface are in
total contact to avoid CPU overheating problem that would
cause your system to hang or be unstable.

INSTALLATIONS
Installing the Memory
The MB966 board supports four DDR3 memory socket for a maximum
total memory of 16GB in DDR3 DIMM memory type.
Installing and Removing Memory Modules
To install the DDR3 modules, locate the memory slot on the board and
perform the following steps:
1. Hold the DDR3 module so that the key of the DDR3 module aligned
with that on the memory slot.
2. Gently push the DDR3 module in an upright position until the clips of
the slot close to hold the DDR3 module in place when the DDR3
module touches the bottom of the slot.
3. To remove the DDR3 module, press the clips with both hands.

BIOS SETUP
BIOS Introduction
The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) installed in your computer
system’s ROM supports Intel processors. The BIOS provides critical
low-level support for a standard device such as disk drives, serial ports
and parallel ports. It also adds virus and password protection as well as
special support for detailed fine-tuning of the chipset controlling the
entire system.
BIOS Setup
The BIOS provides a Setup utility program for specifying the system
configurations and settings. The BIOS ROM of the system stores the
Setup utility. When you turn on the computer, the BIOS is immediately
activated. Pressing the <Del> key immediately allows you to enter the
Setup utility. If you are a little bit late pressing the <Del> key, POST
(Power On Self Test) will continue with its test routines, thus preventing
you from invoking the Setup. If you still wish to enter Setup, restart the
system by pressing the ”Reset” button or simultaneously pressing the
<Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete> keys. You can also restart by turning the
system Off and back On again. The following message will appear on
the screen:
Press
<DEL>
to
Enter
Setup
In general, you press the arrow keys to highlight items, <Enter> to
select, the <PgUp> and <PgDn> keys to change entries, <F1> for help
and <Esc> to quit.
When you enter the Setup utility, the Main Menu screen will appear on
the screen. The Main Menu allows you to select from various setup
functions and exit choices.

If the system cannot boot after making and saving system
changes with Setup, the AMI BIOS supports an override to
the CMOS settings that resets your system to its default.
Warning: It is strongly recommended that you avoid making any
changes to the chipset defaults. These defaults have been
carefully chosen by both AMI and your system manufacturer
to provide the absolute maximum performance and
reliability. Changing the defaults could cause the system to
become unstable and crash in some cases.
