Micro ATX BX7 Specifications
CHAPTER 1
INTRODUCTION
Chapter 1
INTRODUCTION
The MICRO ATX BX7 mainboard is a high-performance personal computer
mainboard based on the Intel® Pentium® II processor. This mainboard
combines leading edge AGP ATI® 3D RAGE PRO/RAGE PRO Turbo technology in graphics and Creative® ES1371/ES1373(reserved) PCI technology in
audio. The Intel® Pentium® II processor supports MMXTM (Multimedia
Extension) technology.
The mainboard uses the highly integrated Intel® 82443BX AGP chipset to
support the PCI/ISA and Green standards, and to provide the Host/AGP
bridge. The Intel® 82371EB chipset integrates all system control functions
such as ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface). The ACPI
provides more Energy Saving Features for the OSPM(OS Direct Power
Management) function. The Intel® 82371EB chipset also improves the IDE
transfer rate by supporting Ultra DMA/33 IDE that transfers data at the rate
of 33MB/s.
The mainboard also supports the System Hardware Monitor Controller as an
optional function. Its functions include: CPU /power supply/chassis fan
revolution detect, CPU/system voltage monitor, system temperature monitor,
and chassis intrusion detect(optional).

HARDWARE INSTALLATION
2.1 Central Processing Unit: CPU
The mainboard operates with Intel® Pentium® II/CeleronTM processor. The
mainboard uses a CPU Slot called Slot 1 for easy CPU installation and a
jumper switch (SW1) to set the proper speed for the CPU. The CPU should
always have a Heat Sink and a cooling fan attached to prevent overheating.

ratio of the CPU. The actual core speed of the CPU is the Host Clock
Frequency multiplied by the Core/Bus ratio. For example:

These connectors support system cooling fan with +12V. It supports three
pin head connector. When connecting the wire to the connector, always
take note that the red wire is the positive and should be connected to the
+12V, the black wire is Ground and should be connected to GND. If your
mainboard has System Hardware Monitor chipset on-board, you must use a
specially designed fan with speed sensor to take advantage of this function.

This category allows you to limit access to the system and Setup,

Setup(default)
The system will boot, but access to Setup will
be denied if the correct password is not entered
at the prompt.
PCI VGA Palette Snooping
Choose Disabled or Enabled. Some graphic controllers which are
not VGA compatible, take the output from a VGA controller and map it to
their display as a way to provide the boot information and the VGA
compatibility.
However, the color information coming from the VGA controller is
drawn from the palette table inside the VGA controller to generate the proper
colors, and the graphic controller needs to know what is in the palette of the
VGA controller. To do this, the non-VGA graphic controller watches for the
Write access to the VGA palette and registers the snoop data. In PCI based
systems, where the VGA controller is on the PCI bus and a non-VGA graphic
controller is on an ISA bus, the Write Access to the palette will not show up
on the ISA bus if the PCI VGA controller responds to the Writes.
In this case, the PCI VGA controller should not respond to the Write.
It should only snoop the data and permit the access to be forwarded to the ISA
bus. The non-VGA ISA graphic controller can then snoop the data on the ISA
bus. Unless you have the above situation, you should disable this option.

Video RAM Cacheable
Select Enabled allows caching of the video RAM, resulting in better
system performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a
system error may result.
8 Bit I/O Recovery Time
The recovery time is the length of time, measured in CPU clocks,
which the system will delay after the completion of an input/output request.
This delay takes place because the CPU is operating so much faster than the
input/output bus that the CPU must be delayed to allow for the completion
of the I/O.
This items allows you to determine the recovery time allowed for 8
bit I/O. Choices are from NA, 1 to 8 CPU clocks.
16 Bit I/O Recovery Time
This items allows you to determine the recovery time allowed for 16
bit I/O. Choices are from NA, 1 to 4 CPU clocks.
Memory Hole At 15M-16M
In order to improve performance, certain space in memory can be
reserved for ISA cards. This memory must be mapped into the memory
space below 16 MB.
Enabled
Memory hole supported.
Disabled
Memory hole not supported.
Passive Release
When Enabled, CPU to PCI bus accesses are allowed during
passive release. Otherwise, the arbiter only accepts another PCI master
access to local DRAM. The settings are Enabled or Disabled.
Delayed Transaction
The chipset has an embedded 32-bit posted write buffer to support
delay transactions cycles. Select Enabled to support compliance with PCI

During Enabled, if there’s no activity in the monitor screen, the
system will go into Power Saving Mode. During Disabled, the system will
go into Power Saving Mode, whether there is activity in the monitor screen
or not. The settings are Disabled and Enabled.

To use this function, you need a LAN add-on card which support
power on functions. It should also support the wake-up on LAN jumper
(JWOL1).
Enabled
Wake up on LAN supported.

When set to YES, BIOS will only initialize the PnP cards used for
booting (VGA, IDE, SCSI). The rest of the cards will be initialized by the PnP
operating system like Windows® 95 or 98. When set to NO, BIOS will
initialize all the PnP cards. So, for non-PnP operating system (DOS,
Netware®), this option must set to NO.

CHAPTER 3
AWARD® BIOS SETUP
Resources Controlled By
By Choosing “Auto”, the system BIOS will detect the system
resource and automatically assign the relative IRQ and DMA Channel for
each peripheral.
By Choosing “Manual”(default), the user will need to assign IRQ &
DMA for add-on cards. Be sure that there is no conflict for IRQ/DMA and
I/O ports.
Note:
When choosing “Auto”, you must be sure that all of the system
add-on cards are PnP type.
Reset Configuration Data
The system BIOS supports the PnP feature so the system needs to
record which resource is assigned and protect resources from conflict.
Every peripheral device has a node which is called ESCD. This node records
which resources are assigned to it. The system needs to record and update
ESCD to the memory locations. These locations (4K) are reserved at the
system BIOS.
If Disabled (default) is chosen, the system’s ESCD will update only
when the new configuration varies from the last one.
If Enabled is chosen, the system will be forced to update the
system’s ESCD. Then, this option will be auto-set to Disable.

For these 4 IDE options, choose “Auto” to have the system BIOS
auto detect the IDE HDD operation mode for PIO access.
Note:
Some IDE HDD can not operate at the responding HDD’s mode.
When the user has selected “Auto” and the system BIOS has
accepted the HDD response mode, the user may degrade the
HDD’s operation mode. Ex: IF the HDD reported it can operate in
mode 4 but it is not operating properly, the user will have to
manually change the operation mode to mode 3.
Choosing Mode 1-4 will have the system ignore the HDD’s reported
operation mode and use the selected mode instead.
Note:According to ATA specs. Mode 4 transfer rate is > Mode 3 > Mode 2
> Mode 1 > Mode 0. If the user’s HDD can operate at Mode 3 the user
can also select a slower Mode (i.e. Mode 0-2) but not a faster Mode (ie
