2-1 Installing a CPU Processor for Socket 478
The Intel® Socket 478, designed for the Pentium 4 processor, has been incorporated as a
standard motherboard specification. To insert your CPU into Socket 478 please follow
the steps bellow:
1. Locate the 478-pin CPU socket on the motherboard.
2. Unlock the socket by pressing the leaver sideways, and then open it up to a 90-degree
angle.
3. Locate a Gold Mark on the top surface of the CPU, which is close to one of the CPU
corners. The same corner will also be cut off, leaving a noticeable notch in the CPU's
corner. These markings indicate Pin 1 on the CPU.
4. Gently insert the CPU with Gold Mark/Pin 1 at the same corner of Socket 478, which is
located close to the end of the lever. Allow the weight of the CPU to push itself into
place. Do not apply extra pressure as doing so may result in damaging your CPU.
5. When the CPU is correctly inserted, close the leaver with your finger on to of the CPU
to make sure the CPU is properly embedded into the socket.
6. Insert an appropriate heat sink and fan for proper Heat dispatch.
Installing a standard Intel® specified heat sink with cooling fan is
necessary for proper heat dissipation from your CPU. Failing to install
these items may result in overheating and possible burnout of your CPU.
2-2 Setting Your CPU’s Performance
Frequency Configuration:
This motherboard uses a new user-friendly technology that enables the user to setup a
main board’s CPU parameters through an easy to use BIOS setup procedure. It is no
longer necessary to make many jumper settings as on conventional motherboard.
After installing all your hardware into your PC system, you can manually configure your
CPU clock ratio and CPU clock according to your processor’s specifications. By turning
on your system’s power. Enable the CMOS Setup Utility by pressing the delete key when
your BIOS identification screen appears, then go to the Frequency/ Voltage control option
and select your CPU clock ration and CPU clock speed (please refer to Chapter3 for more
details).
You do not need to make voltage settings because this board will automatically
The power supply connector is the last connection to be made while
installing a motherboard. Before connecting the power supply, please
make sure it is not connected to the power source.
PW1 / 2 (ATX Power Supply Connector)
The power cord leading from the system's power supply to the external power source
must be the very last part connected when assembling a system. The ATX power supply
provides a single 20-pin connector interface, which incorporates standard +/-5V, +/-12V,
optional 3.3V and Soft-power signals. The Soft power signal, a 5V trickle supply is
continuously supplied when AC power is available. When the system is in the Soft-Off
mode, this trickle supply maintains the system in its minimum power state.
The ATX 12V power supply has a new +12V (4-pin) and +5V/3.3V (6-pin) auxiliary
power connector. To enable the delivery of more +12 VDC and +5/3.3V VDC current to
the motherboard.
Power-On By Modem
While in Soft-Off state, if an external modem ring-up signal occurs, the system wakes up
and can be remotely accessed. You may enable this function in BIOS's Power
Management Setup menu. (See section 3. 5)
Blinking LED in Suspend Mode
While in Suspend mode, the LED light on the front panel of your computer will flash.
Suspend mode is entered by pressing the Override Power Button, pushing the Green
button on your ATX case, or enabling the Power Management and Suspend Mode options
in BIOS's Power Management menu. (See section 3.5)
Poly-fuse Over Current Protection
The poly-fuse protects the system from dangerous voltages that the system might be
exposed to via the keyboard or USB connector. In case of such exposure, the poly-fuse
will immediately be disconnected from the circuit, just like a normal fuse. After being
disconnected for a certain period of time, the poly-fuse will return to its normal state.
Then the keyboard or USB connector can function properly again. Unlike conventional
fuses, the poly-fuse does not have to be replaced, relieving the user wasted time and
inconvenience.
CN1A (Front Panel Connector)
1. PWR-SW (Over-ride Power Button Connector)
The power button on the ATX chassis can be used as a normal power
switch as well as a device to activate Advanced Power Management
Suspend mode. This mode is used for saving electricity when the

G-BTN/G-LED (Green Button Switch/LED Connector)
Some ATX cases provide a Green button switch, which is used to put the system in
Suspend mode. In Suspend mode, the power supply to the system is reduced to a trickle,
the CPU clock is stopped, and the CPU core is in its minimum power state. The system
is woken up whenever the keyboard or mouse is touched. The system resumes in
different ways as defined by Power Management Setup screen in BIOS.
RESET (System Reset Switch Connector)
This connector should be connected to the reset switch on the front panel of the system
case. The reset switch allows you to restart the system without turning the power off.
SPEAKER (Speaker Connector)
This 4-pin connector connects to the case-mounted speaker.

ACPI Suspend Type
This feature allows user to select a suspend type for the operating system to turn off
peripherals devices, such as CD-ROM players, when they are not in use.
Power Management Option
Power management allows the computer to save electricity when it is not in use by
entering increasingly deep power saving modes.
Modem Use IRQ
If your computer has a modem use this function to tell BIOS which IRQ is being
occupied by the modem card. When the system is in Green mode, the modem requires an
IRQ assignment to wake up the system and perform tasks. This assignment is complaint
with the APM 1.2 complaint operating systems.
Soft-Off by PWRBTN
When set to Delay 4 Sec., this function allows the power button to put the system in
Suspend, a power saving mode. When set to Instant-Off the Soft-Off by PWR-BTN
function is disabled and the computer turns completely off when the power button is
pressed.
Run VGABIOS if S3 Resume
Available options: Disable/Enable.
PWRON After PWR-Fail
This allows you to set whether you want your system to reboot after the power has been
interrupted. [Off] leaves your system off and [On] reboots your system. [Former-Sts]
sets your system back to the state it is before the power interruption. Available options
include [Disabled], [Enabled], [Former-Sts].
IRQ/Event Activity Detect
HDD Power Down:
Shuts down any IDE hard disk drives in the system after a period of inactivity as set in
this user configurable field. This feature does not affect SCSI hard drives.
1. PS2KB Wakeup Select
When enabled, the system can be turned on by a PS2 keyboard hot key.
2. PS2KB Wakeup from S3/S4/S5
Available options: Disable/Enable.
3. USB Resume from S3
When enabled, the system is able to resume form S3 mode by a USB keyboard hot key
or mouse click.
4. PowerOn by PCI Card
When enabled, a PCI interface that receives a signal will wake up the system from soft
off and green mode.
5. Wake Up On LAN/Ring
When enabled, a LAN/modem that receives a signal will wake up the system from soft
off and green mode. You should connect the modem to the COM port and turn on the
resume event in green mode.
6. RTC Alarm Resume
When enabled, this setting allows the system to turn back on at a designated time of the
month. User must designate date of month and time of day. This function is only
available when using an ATX power supply and the Software Power-Off function to turn
off the computer. See the Software Power-Off feature in Section 2-3 of this manual for
instructions.
Suspend Mode
The Power Management function must not be set to disabled to enable this function. If
the system runs in Standby mode and the Suspend timer expires, all devices regulated by
power management will shut off and the CPU speed will be 0 MHz.
Video Off Option
This setting allows you to select the power-saving modes during which the monitor goes
blank.
Video Off Method
This function serves as both a screen saver and power saver for monitors. See the next
function, Video Off After, for setting the video timer.
1. Blank - BIOS will only blank the monitor's screen. The electricity saved in this mode is
negligible and this function is only used as a screen saver to prevent screen damage
while the screen is on but not in use.
2. V/H SYNC+Blank - The system turns off the vertical and horizontal synchronization
ports, writes blanks to the VGA buffer and the monitor's electron gun turns off. This
function requires a monitor with Green features in order to take advantage of the
power saving function. If you enable this function and do not have a Green monitor,
13
IRQs Activities Monitoring
This feature allows you to monitor a list of IRQ, Interrupt ReQuests. When an I/O device
14
Chapter 3
wants to gain the attention of the operating system, it signals this by causing an IRQ to
occur. When the operating system is ready to respond to the request, it interrupts itself and
performs the service.
Chapter 3
CPU Clock
It is recommended to keep the default setting for stable system operation.
Overclocking:
This motherboard is designed to support overclocking. However, please
make sure your components are able to tolerate such abnormal setting,
while doing overclocking. Any attempt to operate beyond product
specifications is not recommended. We do not guarantee the damages or
risks caused by inadequate operation or beyond product specifications.
3-6 PNP/PCI Configurations
This section provides IRQ and DMA setting information. By choosing the PNP/PCI
Configuration option from the CMOS Setup Utility menu (Figure 3-1), the screen below
is displayed. This screen contains the manufacturer's default values for the motherboard.
PNP OS Installed
If you want to install a PNP compatible OS (such as Windows 95) set to Yes.
Reset Configuration Data:
If you want to reset CMOS IRQ divide hardware device, please selected to [Enabled].
Resources Controlled By
When set to Manual the system BIOS will not refer to the ESCD for IRQ & DMA
information. Instead, it will refer to the items in the setup menu for assigning IRQ &
DMA. When set to Auto the system BIOS will refer to the ESCD for all legacy
information. ESCD (Extended System Configuration Data) provides a detailed format
of the configuration data structures stored in flash memory. Each data structure defines
the resources used by a device or a card in the system. This includes legacy and PCI/ISA
PnP devices.
PCI/VGA Palette Snoop
When set to [Enabled], multiple VGA devices operating on different buses can handle
data from the CPU on each set of palette registers on every video device. Bit 5 of the
command register in the PCI device configuration space is the VGA Palette Snoop bit (0
is disabled). Available options are [Enabled] and [Disabled].
Assign IRQ For VGA/USB
Available options: [Enabled] and [Disabled].
FDD IRQ Can Be Free
This function allows user to choose if the FDD IRQ can be freed up. The default setting
is [Yes] and this does not allow the IRQ to be free.
3-8 Load Fail-Safe Defaults
Load Fail-Safe Defaults loads the default BIOS values directly from the CMOS Setup
Utility menu (Figure3-1). If the stored record created by the setup program becomes
corrupted and therefore unusable, these defaults will be loaded automatically when you
turn on the computer.
3-9 Load Optimized Defaults
Load Optimized Defaults loads the default system values directly from the CMOS Setup
Utility menu (Figure3-1). If the stored record created by the setup program becomes
corrupted and therefore unusable, these defaults will be loaded automatically when you
turn on the computer.
3-10 Supervisor Password & User Password Setting
There are four different variables that control password settings. The first two are
located under the Security Option function in BIOS Features Setup Menu (Figure 3-1).
When the Security Option function is set to Setup, a password is required to enter BIOS
and change BIOS settings. When the Security Option function is set to System, a
password is required to enter both BIOS and the computer's operating system (for
example Windows 98) found on the boot drive.
The third and fourth variables are user password and supervisor password selected in
BIOS (Figure 3-1). The main purpose of separating user and supervisor is to allow only
the supervisor to have control over the settings in BIOS. The user, on the other hand, is
only allowed to access the computer's operating system and change the user password in
BIOS.
3-7 Frequency/Voltage Control
By choosing the Frequency/Voltage Control option from the CMOS Setup Utility menu
(Figure 3-1), the screen below is displayed. This sample screen contains the
manufacturer's default values for the motherboard.
CPU Clock Ratio
This feature allows user to manually configure your CPU clock ratio according to your
processor’s specifications.
Auto Detect PCI/DIMM Clk
Enabling this function will auto-detect PCI/DIMM clock.
When there is no supervisor password set, the user password controls access to
all BIOS settings.
3-11 Save and Exit Setup
If you select this and type [Y] (for Yes) followed by the [Enter] key, the values entered in
the setup utilities will be recorded in the CMOS memory of the BIOS chip.
3-12 Exit Without Saving
Selecting this option and pressing Y followed by the [Enter] key lets you exit the Setup
program without recording any new values or changing old ones.
