ASUS EZ Flash 2
ASUS EZ Flash 2 is a user-friendly utility that allows you to update the
BIOS without using a bootable floppy disk or an OS-based utility.
ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3
ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 is an auto-recovery tool that allows you to
restore a corrupted BIOS file using the bundled support DVD or a USB
flash disk that contains the BIOS file.
ASUS O.C. Profile
The motherboard features the ASUS O.C. Profile that allows you to
conveniently store or load multiple BIOS settings. The BIOS settings can
be stored in the CMOS or a separate file, giving you the freedom to share
and distribute your favorite settings.

Precision Tweaker 2
Allows you to fine-tune the VCore / VDDNB voltage in 0.006250V steps
and DRAM voltage in 0.015V steps to achieve the most precise setting
for the ultimate overclocking configuration.
C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall)
The BIOS C.P.R. feature automatically restores the CPU default settings
when the system hangs due to overclocking failure. C.P.R. eliminates the
need to open the system chassis and clear the RTC data. Simply shut
down and reboot the system, and the BIOS automatically restores the
CPU parameters to their default settings.

• Before handling components, use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safely grounded
object or a metal object, such as the power supply case, to avoid damaging them due to
static electricity.
• Hold components by the edges to avoid touching the ICs on them.
• Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded antistatic pad or in the
bag that came with the component.
• Before you install or remove any component, switch off the ATX power supply and
detach its power cord. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard,
peripherals, or components.

Sempron™ 100 series processors.
The AM3 socket has a different pinout from the AM2+/AM2 socket. Ensure that you use a
CPU designed for the AM3 socket. The CPU fits in only one correct orientation. DO NOT
force the CPU into the socket to prevent bending the pins and damaging the CPU!

Ensure that you use only AMD-certified heatsink and fan assembly.
To install the CPU heatsink and fan:
1.
Place the heatsink on top of the installed CPU, ensuring that the heatsink fits properly
on the retention module base.
• The retention module base is already installed on the motherboard upon purchase.
• You do not have to remove the retention module base when installing the CPU or
installing other motherboard components.

This motherboard comes with two Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) Small Outline Dual Inline
Memory Modules (SO-DIMM) sockets. A DDR3 module has the same physical dimensions
as a DDR2 DIMM but is notched differently to prevent installation on a DDR2 DIMM socket.
DDR3 modules are developed for better performance with less power consumption. The
figure illustrates the location of the DDR3 DIMM sockets:

Memory configurations
You may install 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB unbuffered non-ECC DDR3 SO-DIMMs into the
DIMM sockets.
• You may install varying memory sizes in Channel A and Channel B. The system maps
the total size of the lower-sized channel for the dual-channel configuration. Any excess
memory from the higher-sized channel is then mapped for single-channel operation.
• Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum compatibility, we
recommend that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor.
• Due to CPU spec., AMD® 100 and 200 series CPUs support up to DDR3 1066MHz. With
ASUS design, this motherboard can support up to DDR3 1333MHz.
• When overclocking, some AMD CPU models may not support DDR3 1600 MHz or
higher frequency DIMMs.
.e
u
• Due to the memory address limitation on 32-bit Windows® OS, when you install 4GB
or more memory on the motherboard, the actual usable memory for the OS can be
about 3GB or less. For effective use of memory, we recommend that you do any of the
following:
Install a maximum of 3GB system memory if you are using a 32-bit Windows® OS.
Use a 64-bit Windows® OS if you want to install 4GB or more memory on the motherboard.

ls

• This motherboard does not support DIMMs made up of 256 megabits (Mb) chips or less.
w
.d
ev
ic
• The default memory operation frequency is dependent on its Serial Presence Detect
(SPD), which is the standard way of accessing information from a memory module.
Under the default state, some memory modules for overclocking may operate at a
lower frequency than the vendor-marked value. To operate at the vendor-marked or at a
higher frequency, refer to section 2.4 Ai Tweaker menu for manual memory frequency
adjustment.
w
w
• For system stability, use a more efficient memory cooling system to support a full
memory load (2 SO-DIMMs) or overclocking condition.

Expansion slot
In the future, you may need to install an expansion card. The following sub‑sections describe
the slot and the expansion card that it supports.
Unplug the power cord before adding or removing an expansion card. Failure to do so may
cause you physical injury and damage motherboard components.
1.8.1
Installing an expansion card
To install an expansion card:
Before installing the expansion card, read the documentation that came with it and
make the necessary hardware settings for the card.
2.
Remove the system unit cover (if your motherboard is already installed in a chassis).
3.
Remove the bracket opposite the slot that you intend to use. Keep the screw for later
use.
4.
Align the card connector with the slot and press firmly until the card is completely
seated on the slot.
5.
Secure the card to the chassis with the screw you removed earlier.
6.
Replace the system cover.

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.

• If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper again
to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After clearing the CMOS, reinstall the battery.
w
w
• You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking. For
system failure due to overclocking, use the CPU Parameter Recall (C.P.R) feature. Shut
down and reboot the system so the BIOS can automatically reset parameter settings to
default values.
