2.3
Central Processing Unit (CPU)
2.3.1
Overview
The motherboard comes with dual surface mount 940-pin Zero Insertion
Force (ZIF) sockets designed for AMD Opteron™ 64 processors.
The 128-bit-wide data paths of these processors can run applications
faster than processors with only 32-bit or 64-bit wide data paths.
Take note of the notched corner on
the CPU. This corner should match a
specific corner on the socket to
ensure correct installation.
Notched corner
2.3.2
Installing the CPU
Note in the above illustration that the CPU has a notched corner. This
corner indicates the processor Pin 1 that should match a specific corner of
the CPU socket.
Before installing the CPU, remove the chassis fan attached to the inner
side of the rear panel to allow enough space for the installation. Refer to
section “2.10 Removable components” for details.
Socket for CPU2
Socket for CPU1
If installing only one CPU, use the CPU socket marked CPU1.

2-5
Incorrect installation of the CPU into the socket may bend the pins and
severely damage the CPU!
To install a CPU:
1.
Unlock the socket by pressing
the lever sideways, then lift it
up to a 90°-100° angle.
Make sure that the socket
lever is pushed back all the
way; otherwise the CPU does
not fit in completely.

For dual-channel configuration, the total size of memory module(s)
installed per channel must be the same for better performance.
Single CPU:
DIMM_A1+DIMM_A2=DIMM_B1+DIMM_B2
Dual CPU:
DIMM_A1+DIMM_A2=DIMM_B1+DIMM_B2=DIMM_A3+DIMM_B3
•
When using one DDR DIMM module, install into DIMM_A1 slot only.
•
When using two DDR DIMM modules, install into DIMM_A1 and
DIMM_A2 slots only.
•
Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum
compatibility, it is recommended that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.

Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC1)
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.
2. Remove the onboard 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. Re-install 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.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC
jumper default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!

IDE connectors (40-1 pin PRI_IDE1, SEC_IDE1)
These connectors are for Ultra DMA 100/66 signal cables. 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.
•
The 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.
•

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable Low-Pin Count (LPC) chip that
you can update using the provided utility described in section “5.1
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+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.

6.1
RAID configurations
The system motherboard comes with the NVIDIA CK-04 RAID controller
that allows you to configure Serial ATA hard disk drives as RAID sets. The
motherboard supports the following RAID configurations.
R A I D 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and
write data in parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same
work as a single drive but at a sustained data transfer rate, double that of
a single disk alone, thus improving data access and storage. Use of two
new identical hard disk drives is required for this setup.
R A I D 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data
from one drive to a second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array
management software directs all applications to the surviving drive as it
contains a complete copy of the data in the other drive. This RAID
configuration provides data protection and increases fault tolerance to the
entire system. Use two new drives or use an existing drive and a new drive
for this setup. The new drive must be of the same size or larger than the
existing drive.
R A I D 0 + 1 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity
(redundancy data) having to be calculated and written. With the RAID 0+1
configuration you get all the benefits of both RAID 0 and RAID 1
configurations. Use four new hard disk drives or use an existing drive and
three new drives for this setup.
J B O D (Spanning) stands for J u s t a B u n c h o f D i s k s and refers to hard
disk drives that are not yet configured as a RAID set. This configuration
stores the same data redundantly on multiple disks that appear as a single
disk on the operating system. Spanning does not deliver any advantage
over using separate disks independently and does not provide fault
tolerance or other RAID performance benefits.
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a
created RAID set, copy first the RAID driver from the support CD to a
floppy disk before you install an operating system to the selected hard
disk drive. Refer to section “6.2 Creating a RAID driver disk” for details.

Chapter 6: Driver installation
6.1.1
Installing hard disks
The motherboard supports Ultra DMA 100/66 IDE and Serial ATA hard disk
drives. For optimal performance, install identical drives of the same model
and capacity when creating a disk array.
Installing Parallel ATA hard disks
To install IDE hard disks for a RAID configuration:
1.
Set the jumpers of each hard disk as Master/Master or Slave/Slave.
2.
Install the hard disks into the drive bays.
3.
Connect the HDD signal cables.
4.
Connect a 4-pin power cable to the power connector on each drive.
Installing Serial ATA (SATA) hard disks
To install the SATA hard disks for a RAID configuration:
1.
Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays.
2.
Connect the SATA signal cables.
3.
Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive.
Refer to the RAID controllers user manual on the support CD for detailed
information on RAID configurations.
6.1.2
RAID configuration utility
You can create a RAID set using the utility embedded in each RAID
controller. For example, you can use the N V I D I A® R A I D U t i l i t y if you
installed SATA hard disk drives on the SATA connectors supported by the
NVIDIA CK-04 Southbridge. Refer to the succeeding sections for details on
how to enter the RAID configuration utility.
