2.2
Before you proceed
Take note of the following precautions before you install components into the
system.
•
Unplug the power cables before you touch any component in the system.
•
Use a grounded wrist strap, or touch a safely grounded object or a metal
object, such as the power supply case, before handling components 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, ensure that the ATX power
supply is switched off or the power cable is detached from the power
supply. Failure to do so may lead to personal injury and cause severe
damage to the motherboard, peripherals, and components.
Onboard LED
The system motherboard comes with a standby power LED that lights up to
indicate that the system is ON, in sleep mode, or in soft-off mode. This a reminder
that you should shut down the system and unplug the power cable before
removing or plugging in any motherboard component. The illustration below shows
the location of the onboard LED.

Central Processing Unit (CPU)
2.4.1
Overview
The motherboard comes with a surface mount LGA775 socket designed for the
Intel® Core™2 Quad / Intel® Core™2 Extreme / Core™2 Duo / Pentium® Extreme /
Pentium® D/ Pentium® 4 / Celeon® processors.
•
Make sure that all power cables are unplugged before installing the CPU.
•
Connect the chassis fan cable to the CHA_FAN connector to ensure
system stability.
•
Upon purchase of the motherboard, make sure that the PnP cap is on
the socket and the socket contacts are not bent. Contact your retailer
immediately if the PnP cap is missing, or if you see any damage to the PnP
cap/socket contacts/motherboard components. ASUS will shoulder the cost
of repair only if the damage is shipment/transit-related.
•
•
2.4.2
Keep the cap after installing the motherboard. ASUS will process Return
Merchandise Authorization (RMA) requests only if the motherboard comes
with the cap on the LGA775 socket.
The product warranty does not cover damage to the socket contacts
resulting from incorrect CPU installation/removal, or misplacement/loss/
incorrect removal of the PnP cap.
Installing CPU
To install a CPU:
1.
Locate the CPU socket on the motherboard.

Installing the CPU fan and heatsink assembly
The Intel® Pentium® 4 LGA775 processor requires a specially designed heatsink
and fan assembly to ensure optimum thermal condition and performance.
•
When you buy a boxed Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, the package
includes the CPU fan and heatsink assembly. If you buy a CPU separately,
make sure that you use only Intel®‑certified multi‑directional heatsink and
fan.
•
Your Intel® Pentium® 4 LGA775 heatsink and fan assembly comes in a
push-pin design and requires no tool to install.
If you purchased a separate CPU heatsink and fan assembly, make sure that
the Thermal Interface Material is properly applied to the CPU heatsink or CPU
before you install the heatsink and fan assembly.
To install the CPU heatsink and fan:
1.
2.
Place the heatsink on top of the
installed CPU, ensuring that the four
fasteners match the holes on the
motherboard.

*If you install a DDR2-1066 memory module whose SPD is DDR2-800,
make sure that you set the DRAM Frequency item in BIOS to
[DDR2-1066MHz]. See section 5.4.1 Jumperfree Configuration for
details.
Chapter 2: Basic installation
2.5.1
Memory configurations
You may install 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB unbuffered non‑ECC DDR2
DIMMs into the DIMM sockets.
Recommended Memory Configurations
•
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,
it is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor.
•
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 install a 64-bit Windows OS when having 4GB or
more memory installed on the motherboard.
•
This motherboard does not support DIMMs made up of 256 megabit (Mb)
chips or less.
Notes on memory limitations
•
Due to chipset limitation, this motherboard can only support up to
8 GB on the operating systems listed below. You may install a maximum of
2 GB DIMMs on each slot.
64-bit
Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
®
Windows® Vista x64 Edition
•
Some old-version DDR2-800/667 DIMMs may not match Intel®’s
On‑Die‑Termination (ODT) requirement and will automatically downgrade
to run at DDR2-533. If this happens, contact your memory vendor to check
the ODT value.
•
Due to chipset limitation, DDR2-800 with CL=4 will be downgraded to run
at DDR2-667 by default setting. If you want to operate with lower latency,
adjust the memory timing manually.
•
Due to chipset limitation, DDR2-667 with CL=3 will be downgraded to run
at DDR2-533 by default setting. If you want to operate with lower latency,
adjust the memory timing manually.

Jumpers
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.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
3.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins
2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
2.
4.
5.
6.
Remove the onboard battery.
Re-install the battery.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to
re-enter data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper
default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!

For a fully configured system, we recommend that you use a power supply
unit (PSU) that complies with ATX 12 V Specification 2.0 (or later version)
and provides a minimum power of 400 W.
Do not forget to connect the 4-pin EATX12V power plug; otherwise, the
system will not boot.
Use of a PSU with a higher power output is recommended when
configuring a system with more power-consuming devices. The system
may become unstable or may not boot up if the power is inadequate.
If you want to use two high-end PCI Express x16 cards, use a PSU with
500W to 600W power or above to ensure the system stability.

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) chip
that you can update using the provided utility described in section “4.1 Managing
and updating your BIOS.”
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring
your system, or prompted to “Run Setup.” This section explains how to configure
your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you can change the
configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you can enable the
security password feature or change the power management settings. This
requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup program so that the
computer can recognize these changes and record them in the CMOS RAM of the
SPI chip.
The SPI chip on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start up the
computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program. Press
<Del> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility; otherwise,
POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing <Ctrl+Alt+Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can
also restart by turning the system off and then back on. Do this last option only if
the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being a
menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus and make
your selections from the available options using the navigation keys.

The default BIOS settings for this motherboard apply for most conditions
to ensure optimum performance. If the system becomes unstable after
changing any BIOS settings, load the default settings to ensure system
compatibility and stability. Select the Load Setups Default item under the
Exit Menu. See section 5.8 Exit Menu.
