Preparing the Motherboard
Installing the CPU
Be very careful when handling the CPU. Hold the processor only by the edges
and do not touch the bottom of the processor.
Use the following procedure to install the
CPU onto the motherboard:
Unhook the socket lever by pushing down and
away from the socket.
Put your finger on the tail of the load plate
and press down with light pressure to lift
the load plate up.
Lift the load plate. There is a protective socket
cover within the CPU socket to protect
the socket when there is no CPU
installed.
Remove the protective socket cover from the
CPU Socket.
Note:
18
After removing the CPU socket cover, it is recommended that you keep it
in case you need to remove CPU for any reason you can replace the
cover to avoid damaging the CPU socket pins.
EVGA FTW3 Motherboard
Align the notches in the processor with the
notches on the socket.
Lower the processor straight down into the
socket with out tilting or sliding it into the
socket
Note:
Make sure the CPU is fully seated and
level in the socket.
Close the load plate over the CPU and press
down while you close and engage the
socket lever.
Align notches with notches on the CPU
The CPU installation is complete.
Installing the CPU Fan
There are many different fan types that can be used with this motherboard.

orientation is correct for your chassis type and your fan assembly.
19
EVGA X58 FTW3 Motherboard
Installing System Memory (DIMMs)
Your new motherboard has six 240-pin slots for DDR3 memory. These slots
support 1GB, 2GB, 4GB DDR3 technologies. There must be at least one
memory bank populated to ensure normal operation. Use the following the
recommendations for installing memory. (See Figure 1 on page 15 for the
location of the memory slots.)
One DIMM: If using 1 DIMM (Single Channel), install into: DIMM slot 1.
Two or Four DIMMs: If using 2 DIMMs (Dual Channel), install into:
DIMM slots 1 and 3. If using 4 DIMMs (Dual Channel), install into:
DIMM slots 2, 1, 4, and 3.
Three DIMMs: If using 3 DIMMs (Triple Channel), install into: DIMM
slots 1, 3 and 5.
Six DIMMs: If using more than 4 DIMMs, use: DIMM slots 2, 1, 4, and 3
then proceed to occupy the following DIMM slots in this order: 5 and 6.
DIMM Slot 2
DIMM Slot 1
DIMM Slot 4
DIMM Slot 3
DIMM Slot 6
DIMM Slot 5
Use the following procedure to install DIMMs. Note that there is only one gap
near the center of the DIMM slot. This slot matches the slot on the DIMM to
ensure the component is installed properly.
1.
Unlock a DIMM slot by pressing the module clips outward.
Align the memory module to the DIMM slot, and insert the module vertically
into the DIMM slot. The plastic clips at both sides of the DIMM slot
automatically lock the DIMM into the connector.
20
EVGA FTW3 Motherboard
Installing the Motherboard
The sequence of installing the motherboard into a system case depends on the
chassis you are using and if you are replacing an existing motherboard or
working with an empty system case. Determine if it would be easier to make all
the connections prior to this step or to secure the motherboard and then make
all the connections. It is normally easier to secure the motherboard first.
Use the following procedure to install the I/O shield and secure the
motherboard into the chassis.
Note:
Be sure that the CPU fan assembly has enough clearance for the system
case covers to lock into place and for the expansion cards. Also make sure
the CPU Fan assembly is aligned with the vents on the covers. This will
depend on the system case being used.
Installing the I/O Shield
The motherboard kit comes with an I/O shield that is used to block radio
frequency transmissions, protects internal components from dust and foreign
objects, and promotes correct airflow within the chassis.
Before installing the motherboard, install the I/O shield from the inside of the
chassis. Press the I/O shield into place and make sure it fits securely. If the
I/O shield does not fit into the chassis, you would need to obtain the proper
size from the chassis supplier.
21
EVGA X58 FTW3 Motherboard
Securing the Motherboard into a System Case
Most system cases have a base with mounting studs or spacers to allow the
motherboard to be secured to the chassis and help to prevent short circuits. If
there are studs that do not align with a mounting hole on the motherboard, it is
recommended that you remove that stud to prevent the possibility of a short
circuit. In most cases, it is recommended to secure the motherboard using a
minimum of nine (9) spacers and screws.
1.
Carefully place the motherboard onto the stand off /spacers located inside
the chassis.
Align the mounting holes with the studs/spacers.
Align the connectors to the I/O shield.
Ensure that the fan assembly is aligned with the chassis vents according to the
fan assembly instruction.
Secure the motherboard with a recommended minimum of nine (9) screws.

31
EVGA X58 FTW3 Motherboard
PCI Slots
The two PCI slots support many expansion cards such as a LAN card, USB
card, SCSI card and other cards that comply with PCI specifications. When
installing a card into the PCI slot, be sure that it is fully seated. Secure the card’s
metal bracket to the chassis back panel with the screw used to hold the blank
cover.
PCI-E x1 Slots
There is one PCI-E x1 slot that is designed to accommodate less bandwidthintensive cards, such as a modem or LAN card. The x1 slots provide 250
MB/sec bandwidth.
PCI-E x16/x8 Slots
These PCI-E slots are reserved for Graphic Cards and PCI-E x1 and x4 devices.
The design of this motherboard supports multiple Graphic Card technology.
When installing a PCI-E Graphic Card, be sure the retention clip snaps and
locks the card into place. If the card is not seated properly, it could cause a
short across the pins. Secure the card’s metal bracket to the chassis back panel
with the screw used to hold the blank cover.
