Mainboard User’s Manual
Installing the Processor
This mainboard has a Socket 478 processor socket. When choosing
a processor, consider the performance requirements of the system.
Performance is based on the processor design, the clock speed and
system bus frequency of the processor, and the quantity of internal
cache memory and external cache me mory.
CPU Installation Procedure
Follow these instructions to install the CPU:
1. Unhook the CPU socket’s locking lever by pulling
it away from socket and raising it to the upright
position.
2. Match the pin 1 corner of CPU socket to the one of
processor, and insert the processor into the socket.
Do not use force.
3. Push the locking lever down and hook it under the
latch on the edge of socket.
4. Apply thermal grease to the top of the CPU.
5. Lower the CPU fan/heatsink unit onto the CPU and
CPU socket, and then use the retention module
clamps to snap the fan/heatsink into place.
6. Plug the CPU fan power cable into the CPU
cooling fan power supply (CPU_FAN) on the
mainboard.

2: Mainboard Installation
Installing Memory Modules
This mainboard accommodates 168-pin 3.3V/184-pin 2.5V
unbuffered SDRAM memory modules. The memory chips must be
standard or registered SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic Random
Access Memory).
The CPU supports 100/133MHz system bus. The SDRAM DIMMs
and DDRs can synchronously work with 100 MHz or operates over
a 133 MHz system bus.
You must install at least one memory module in order to use
the mainboard, either SDRAM or DDR SDRAM, but you
cannot use them simultaneously .
DDR SDRAM provides 800 MB/s or 1 GB/s data transfer
corresponding with the bus 100 MHz or 133 MHz. It doubles the
rate to 1.6 GB/s and 2.1 GB/s by transferring data on both the
rising and falling edges of the clock. DDR SDRAM uses additional
power and ground lines and requires 184-pin 2.5V unbuffered
DIMM module rather than the 168-pin 3.3V unbuffered DIMMs
used by SDRAM.

Mainboard User’s Manual
Installation Procedure
The mainboard accommodates two memory modules. You must
install at least one module in any of these sockets. Each module
can be installed with up to 1GB system memory.
Refer to the following to install the memory modules.
1. Push the latches on each side of the DIMM socket
down.
2. Align the memory module with the socket. The
DIMM sockets are keyed with notches and the
DIMMs are keyed with cutouts so that they can
only be installed correctly.
3. Check that the cutouts on the DIMM module edge
connector match the notches in the DIMM socket.
4. Install the DIMM module into the slot and press it
firmly down until it is seated correctly. The socket
latches are levered upwards and latch on to the
edges of the DIMM.
5. Install any remaining DIMM modules.

BIOS Setup Utility
Introduction
The BIOS Setup Utility records settings and information of your
computer, such as date and time, the type of hardware installed,
and various configuration settings. Your computer applies those
information to initialize all the components when booting up and
basic functions of coordination between system components.
If the Setup Utility configuration is incorrect, it may cause the
system to malfunction. It can even stop your computer booting
properly. If it happens, you can use the clear CMOS jumpe r to
clear the CMOS memory which has stored the configuration
information; or you can hold down the Page Up key while
rebooting your computer. Holding down the Page Up key also
clears the setup information.
You can run the setup utility and manually change the
configuration. You might need to do this to configure some
hardware installed in or connected to the mainboard, such as the
CPU, system memory, disk drives, etc.

Load Optimal Settings
If you select this item and press Enter a dialog box appears. If you
press Y, and then Enter, the Setup Utility loads a set of fail-safe
default values. These default values are not very demanding and
they should allow your system to function with most kinds of
hardware and memory chips.
Note : It is highly recommend that users enter this option to load
optimal values for accessing the best performance.
Load Best Performance Settings
If you select this item and press Enter a dialog box appears. If you
press Y, and then Enter, the Setup Utility loads a set of bestperformance default values. These default values are quite
demanding and your system might not function properly if you are
