2.2
Before you proceed
Take note of the following precautions before you install components into
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.
The motherboard comes with an onboard standby power LED. This LED
lights up to indicate that the system is ON, in sleep mode or in soft-off
mode, and not powered OFF. Unplug the power cable from the power outlet
and make sure that the standby power LED is OFF before installing any
system component.

Central Processing Unit (CPU)
2.4.1
Overview
The motherboard comes with a 940-pin AM2 socket designed for the AMD
Athlon™ 64 X2/Athlon™ 64/Athlon™ FX/Sempron™ processor.
The AM2 socket has a different pinout from the 940-pin socket designed
for the AMD Opteron™ processor. Make sure you use a CPU is designed
for the AM2 socket. The CPU fits in only one correct orientation. DO NOT
force the CPU into the socket to prevent bending the connectors on the
socket and damaging the CPU!
2.3.1
Installing the CPU
To install a CPU:
1.
Locate the CPU socket on the motherboard.
R
CPU AM2 Socket 940
2.
Unlock the socket by pressing
the lever sideways, then lift it up
to a 90º- 100º angle.
Socket lever
Make sure that the socket lever is lifted up to 90º-100º angle; otherwise,
the CPU will not fit in completely.
2-
Chapter 2: Basic installation
3.
Position the CPU above the
socket such that the CPU corner
with the gold triangle matches
the socket corner with a small
triangle.
4.
Carefully insert the CPU into the
socket until it fits in place.

Small triangle
5.
When the CPU is in place, push
down the socket lever to secure
the CPU. The lever clicks on the
side tab to indicate that it is
locked.
6.
Install a CPU heatsink and fan
following the instructions that
came with the heatsink package.
ASUS Vintage V2-AH2

2.4.3
Installing the CPU fan and heatsink assembly
The AMD Athlon™ 64FX/64 or Sempron™ processor requires a specially
designed CPU fan and heatsink assembly to ensure optimum thermal
condition and performance.
• Your boxed CPU heatsink and fan assembly should come with
installation instructions for the CPU, heatsink, and the retention
mechanism. If the instructions in this section do not match the CPU
documentation, follow the latter.
• The retention module base is already installed on the motherboard.
You do not have to remove the retention module base when
installing the CPU or installing other motherboard components.
• If you purchased a separate CPU fan and heatsink assembly, make
sure that a thermal interface material is properly applied to the CPU
surface or the heatsink bottom before you install the CPU fan and
heatsink assembly.

Chapter 2: Basic installation
To install the CPU fan and heatsink assembly:
1. Place the heatsink on top of the installed CPU.
Make sure that the fan and heatsink assembly perfectly fits the retention
mechanism module base; otherwise you can not lock the retention bracket.
2.
Attach one end of the retention bracket to the retention module base.
3.
Attach the other end of the retention bracket (near the retention
bracket lock) to the retention module base until it clicks in place.
4.
Push down the retention bracket lock on the retention mechanism to
secure the fan and heatsink to the module retention module base.

Memory configurations
You may install 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1 GB unbuffered/non-ECC/ECC DDR2
DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this
section.
• Installing DDR DIMMs other than the recommended configurations
may cause memory sizing error or system boot failure. Use any of
the recommended configurations on the next page.
• Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs for
each channel.
• 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 chipset limitation, this motherboard does not support DIMM
modules with less than or equal to 128 Mb memory chips.

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 the CMOS, which includes
the system setup information such as system passwords.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the battery.
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.
4. Reinstall the battery.
5. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
6. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data.

This jumper allows you to enable or disable the keyboard wake-up
feature. Set this jumper to pins 2-3 (+5VSB) if you wish to wake up
the computer when you press a key on the keyboard (the default is
the Space Bar). This feature requires an ATX power supply that can
supply at least 1A on the +5VSB lead, and a corresponding setting in
the BIOS.

IDE connectors (40-1 pin PRI_IDE, SEC_IDE)
This connector is for an Ultra DMA 100/66 signal cable. The Ultra
DMA 100/66 signal cable has three connectors: a blue connector for
the primary IDE connector on the motherboard, a black connector
for an Ultra DMA 100/66 IDE slave device (optical drive/hard disk
drive), and a gray connector for an Ultra DMA 100/66 IDE master
device (hard disk drive). If you install two hard disk drives, you must
configure the second drive as a slave device by setting its jumper
accordingly. Refer to the hard disk documentation for the jumper
settings.
• Pin 20 on the IDE connector is removed to match the covered hole
on the Ultra DMA cable connector. This prevents incorrect insertion
when you connect the IDE cable.
• Use the 80-conductor IDE cable for Ultra DMA 100/66 IDE devices.

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable Low-Pin Count (LPC) chip
that you can update using the provided utility described in section “2.1
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 LPC chip.
The LPC 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+Del>, 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 Default
Settings item under the Exit Menu. See section “2.7 Exit Menu.”
• The BIOS setup screens shown in this section are for reference
purposes only, and may not exactly match what you see on your screen.
