Hardware Setup
Before the Installation: Turn off the power supply switch (fully turn off the +5V
standby power), or disconnect the power cord before installing or unplugging any
connectors or add-on cards. Failing to do so may cause the motherboard components
or add-on cards to malfunction or damaged.
2.1. Install The Motherboard
Most computer chassis have a base with many mounting holes to allow motherboard
to be securely attached on and at the same time, prevented from short circuits. There
are two ways to attach the motherboard to the chassis base:
1. use with studs
2. or use with spacers
In principle, the best way to attach
the board is to use with studs. Only
if you are unable to do this should
you attach the board with spacers.
Line up the holes on the board with
the mounting holes on the chassis. If
the holes line up and there are screw
holes, you can attach the board with
studs. If the holes line up and there are only slots, you can only attach with spacers.
Take the tip of the spacers and insert them into the slots. After doing this to all the
slots, you can slide the board into position aligned with slots. After the board has been
positioned, check to make sure everything is OK before putting the chassis back on.
ATTENTION: To prevent shorting the PCB circuit, please REMOVE the metal studs
or spacers if they are already fastened on the chassis base and are without
mounting-holes on the motherboard to align with.

2.2. Install Pentium® 4 CPU and Heatsink Supporting-Base
This motherboard provides a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) Socket 478 to install Intel®
Pentium® 4 CPU. The CPU you bought should have a kit of heatsink and cooling fan
along with. If that’s not the case, buy one specially designed for Pentium® 4 Socket
478.
1. Locate the 478-pin ZIF socket
on the motherboard. Fasten the
Retention Module Base onto the
motherboard.
ATTENTION: If you are using
chassis specially designed for
Pentium® 4, please pay attention to
the location of Metal Studs or
Spacers if they are already installed
on the chassis. Be careful not let the
Metal Studs or Spacers contact the
printed circuit wire or parts on the
PCB.
2. Pull the CPU socket lever
sideways away from the socket
and then upwards to 90 degree.
Insert the CPU with the correct
orientation. Do not use extra
force to insert CPU; it only fits
in one orientation. Close down
the socket lever while holding
down the CPU.
3. Put the heatsink faces down
onto the CPU until it completely
covers the CPU.
4. Put the Fan and Retention
Mechanism Assembly onto the
heatsink. Make sure all the four
Retention Locks at each side of
the
Fan
and
Retention
Mechanism Assembly snap into
the Retention Holes.

5. Push down the Retention Lock at both sides of the Fan and Retention Mechanism
Assembly to lock up together with the Retention Module Base.
6. The Fan and Retention Mechanism Assembly and Retention Module Base should
now firmly lock up with each other with the heatsink inside.
ATTENTION: Do not forget to set the correct bus frequency and multiple for your
processor.

Installing and Removing Memory Modules
Power off the computer and unplug the
AC power cord before installing or
removing memory modules.
1. Locate the DIMM slot on the board.
2. Hold two edges of the DIMM
module carefully, keep away of
touching its connectors.
3. Align the two notch keys on the module with the two ribs on the slot.
4. Firmly press the module into the slots until the ejector tabs at both sides of the slot
automatically snaps into the mounting notch. Do not force the DIMM module in
with extra force as the DIMM module only fit in one orientation.
5. To remove the DIMM modules, push the two ejector tabs on the slot outward
simultaneously, and then pull out the DIMM module.
ATTENTION: As the static electricity can damage the electronic components of the
computer or optional modules, make sure you are discharged of static electricity by
touching a grounded metal object briefly before starting these procedures.

Thank you for choosing ABIT products. ABIT sells all our products through
distributors, resellers and system integrators; we have no direct sales to end-users.
Before sending email for tech support please check with your resellers or integrators if
you need any services, they are the ones who sold you your system and they should
know best as to what can be done, how they serve you is a good reference for future
purchases.
We appreciate every customer and would like to provide the best service to you.
Providing fast service to our customers is our top priority. However we receive many
phone calls and a huge amount of email from all over the world. At the present time it
is impossible for us to respond to every single inquiry. Therefore it is quite possible
that if you send an email to us that you may not receive a response.
We have done many compatibility tests and reliability tests to make sure our products
have the best quality and compatibility. In case you need service or technical support,
please understand the constraint we have and always check with the reseller who
sold the product to you first.
To expedite service, we recommend that you follow the procedures outlined below
before contacting us. With your help, we can meet our commitment to provide the
best service to the greatest number of ABIT customers:
1. Check the Manual. It sounds simple but we have taken a lot of care in making a
well-written and thorough manual. It is full of information that doesn't only
pertain to motherboards. The CD-ROM included with your board will have the
manual as well as drivers. If you don't have either one, go to our Program
Download Area of the Website or FTP server.
2. Download latest BIOS, software or drivers. Please go to our Program
Download area on our Website to check to see if you have the latest BIOS. They
are developed over periods of time to fixes bugs or incompatibilities. Also please
make sure you have the latest drivers from your peripheral cards makers!
3. Check the ABIT Technical Terms Guide and FAQ on our Website. We are
trying to expand and make the FAQs more helpful and information rich. Let us
know if you have any suggestions. For hot topics check out our HOT FAQ!

News
group,
alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.abit, is an ideal forum for the public to exchange
information and discuss experiences they have had with ABIT products. Many
times you will see that your question has already been asked before. This is a
public Internet news group and it is reserved for free discussions. Here is a list of

5. Ask your reseller. Your ABIT authorized distributor should be able to provide
the fastest solution to your technical problem. We sell our products through
distributors who sell to resellers and stores. Your reseller should be very familiar
with your system configuration and should be able to solve your problem much
more efficiently than we could. After all, your reseller regards you as an important
customer who may purchase more products and who can urge your friends to buy
from him or her as well. They integrated and sold the system to you. They should
know best what your system configuration is and your problem. They should have
reasonable return or refund policies. How they serve you is also a good reference
for your next purchase.
6. Contacting ABIT. If you feel that you need to contact ABIT directly you can
send email to the ABIT technical support department. First, please contact the
support team for the branch office closest to you. They will be more familiar with
local conditions and problems and will have better insight as to which resellers
offer what products and services. Due to the huge number of emails coming in
every day and other reasons, such as the time required for problem reproduction,
we will not be able to reply to every email. Please understand that we are selling
through distribution channels and don't have the resources to serve every end-user.
However, we will try to do our best to help every customer. Please also remember
that for many of our technical support team English is a second language, you will
have a better chance of getting a helpful answer if your question can be
understood in the first place. Be sure to use very, simple, concise language that
clearly states the problem, avoid rambling or flowery language and always list
your system components. Here is the contact information for our branch offices:

7. RMA Service. If your system has been working but it just stopped, but you have
not installed any new software or hardware recently, it is likely that you have a
defective component. Please contact the reseller from whom you bought the
product. You should be able to get RMA service there.
8. Reporting Compatibility Problems to ABIT. Because of tremendous number of
email messages we receive every day, we are forced to give greater weight to
certain types of messages than to others. For this reason, any compatibility
problem that is reported to us, giving detailed system configuration information
and error symptoms will receive the highest priority. For the other questions, we
regret that we may not be able to reply directly. But your questions may be posted
to the Internet news group in order that a larger number of users can have the
benefit of the information. Please check the news group from time to time.
