Intel Pentium 4 Processor Family
Cooling Solutions
As processor technology pushes to faster speeds and higher performance, thermal management
becomes increasingly crucial while building computer systems. Maintaining the proper thermal
environment is the key to reliable, long-term system operation. The overall goal in providing the
proper thermal environment is keeping the processor below its specified maximum case temperature.
Heat sinks induce improved processor heat dissipation through increased surface area and
concentrated airflow from attached fans. In addition, interface materials allow effective transfers of
heat from the processor to the heat sink. For optimum heat transfer, Intel recommends the use of
thermal grease and mounting clips to attach the heat sink to the processor.
When selecting a thermal solution for your system, please refer to the website below for collection of
heat sinks evaluated and recommended by Intel for use with Intel processors. Note, those heat sinks
are recommended for maintaining the specified Maximum T case requirement. In addition, this
collection is not intended to be a comprehensive listing of all heat sinks that support Intel processors.

2-3-2 About Intel Pentium 4 LGA775 CPU
This motherboard provides a 775-pin surface mount, LGA775 Land Grid Array socket, referred to as
the LGA775 socket supports Intel Pentium 4 processor in the 775 Pin package utilizes Flip-Chip Land
Grid Array (FC-LGA4) package technology.
The CPU that comes with the motherboard should have a cooling FAN attached to prevent
overheating. If this is not the case, then purchase a correct cooling FAN before you turn on your
system.
WARNING!
Be sure that there is sufficient air circulation across the processor’s heatsink and CPU
cooling FAN is working correctly, otherwise it may cause the processor and motherboard
overheat and damage, you may install an auxiliary cooling FAN, if necessary.
LGA775
To install a CPU, first turn off your system and remove its cover. Locate the LGA775 socket and
open it by first pulling the level sideways away from the socket then upward to a 90-degree angle.
Insert the CPU with the correct orientation as shown below. The notched corner should point toward
the end of the level. Because the CPU has a corner pin for two of the four corners, the CPU will only
fit in the orientation as shown.

Chapter 3
Introducing BIOS
The BIOS is a program located on a Flash Memory on the motherboard. This program is a
bridge between motherboard and operating system. When you start the computer, the BIOS
program gain control. The BIOS first operates an auto-diagnostic test called POST (power on
self test) for all the necessary hardware, it detects the entire hardware device and configures
the parameters of the hardware synchronization. Only when these tasks are completed done it
gives up control of the computer to operating system (OS). Since the BIOS is the only
channel for hardware and software to communicate, it is the key factor for system stability,
and in ensuring that your system performance as its best.
In the BIOS Setup main menu of Figure 3-1, you can see several options. We will explain
these options step by step in the following pages of this chapter, but let us first see a short
description of the function keys you may use here:
•
Press <Esc> to quit the BIOS Setup.
•
Press ↑ ↓ ← → (up, down, left, right) to choose, in the main menu, the option you want to
confirm or to modify.
•
Press <F10> when you have completed the setup of BIOS parameters to save these
parameters and to exit the BIOS Setup menu.
•
Press Page Up/Page Down or +/– keys when you want to modify the BIOS parameters for
the active option.
3-1 Entering Setup
Power on the computer and by pressing <Del> immediately allows you to enter Setup.
If the message disappears before your respond and you still wish to enter Setup, restart the
system to try again by turning it OFF then ON or pressing the “RESET” button on the system
case. You may also restart by simultaneously pressing <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete> keys. If
you do not press the keys at the correct time and the system does not boot, an error message
will be displayed and you will again be asked to
Press <F1> to continue, <Ctrl-Alt-Esc> or <Del> to enter Setup

RAS Active Time
This field let’s you insert a timing delay between the CAS and RAS strobe signals, used when
DRAM is written to, read from, or refreshed. Fast gives faster performance; and Slow gives
more stable performance. This field applies only when synchronous DRAM is installed in the
system. The settings are: 2T and 3T.
RAS Precharge Time
If an insufficient number of cycles is allowed for the RAS to accumulate its charge before
DRAM refresh, the refresh may be incomplete and the DRAM may fail to retain date. Fast
gives faster performance; and Slow gives more stable performance. This field applies only
when synchronous DRAM is installed in the system. The settings are: 2T and 3T.
CAS Latency
When synchronous DRAM is installed, the number of clock cycles of CAS latency depends
on the DRAM timing. The settings are: 2T and 2.5T.
