PC Alert™ 4
The PC AlertTM 4 is a utility you can find in the CD-ROM disk. The utility
is just like your PC doctor that can detect the following PC hardware status
during real time operation:
Ø monitor CPU & system temperatures
Ø monitor fan speeds
Ø monitor system voltages
If one of the items above is abnormal, the program main screen will be
immediately shown on the screen, with the abnormal item highlighted in red.
This will continue to be shown until the condition returns to the normal status.
Adjusting Keys

Users can use the Adjusting Keys to change the minimum and maximum
threshold of each item for the system to
send out a warning message. Click Temperature to select the temperature modes of either Fahrenheit (oF) or Celsius (oC). The PC
Alert™ 4 icon on the Status Area will show the current CPU temperature.
MSI Reminds You...
1. Items shown on PC Alert 4 vary depending on your system status.
2. Whenever the minimum or maximum threshold of each item has
been changed, please close the PC Alert 4 program for the new
settings to take effect.

The Fuzzy Logic™ 4 utility is a user friendly tool that allows users to
view and adjust the current system status. To overclock the CPU FSB (Front
Side Bus) frequency under the Windows operating system, click FSB and use
the right and left arrow keys to select the desired FSB, and then click Apply to
apply the new setup value. To enable the system running at the specified FSB
every time when you click Turbo, click Save to save the desired FSB first. If
you want to know the maximal CPU overclocking value, click Auto to start
testing. The CPU FSB will automatically increase the testing value until the PC
reboots. After rebooting, click Turbo to apply the test result. Click Default to
restore the default values.

Central Processing Unit: CPU
The mainboard supports Intel® Pentium® 4 processors in the 478 pin
package. The mainboard uses a CPU socket called PGA478 for easy CPU
installation. When you are installing the CPU, make sure the CPU has a
heat sink and a cooling fan attached on the top to prevent overheating. If
you do not find the heat sink and cooling fan, contact your dealer to purchase
and install them before turning on the computer.

Overheating
Overheating will seriously damage the CPU and system, always make sure the cooling fan can work properly to protect
the CPU from overheating.
Replacing the CPU
While replacing the CPU, always turn off the ATX power supply or unplug the power supply’s power cord from grounded
outlet first to ensure the safety of CPU.
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.

CPU Installation Procedures for Socket 478
1. Please turn off the power and
unplug the power cord before
installing the CPU.
2. Pull the lever sideways away
from the socket. Make sure to
raise the lever up to a 90-degree angle.
3. Look for the gold arrow. The
gold arrow should point towards the lever pivot. The
CPU can only fit in the correct orientation.
4. If the CPU is correctly
installed, the pins should be
completely embedded into the
socket and can not be seen.
Please note that any violation
of the correct installation procedures may cause permanent
damages to your mainboard.

move while the lever is being
closed, always close the lever
with your fingers pressing
tightly on top of the CPU to
make sure the CPU is properly and completely embedded into the socket.

Installing the CPU Fan
As processor technology pushes to faster speeds and higher performance,
thermal management becomes increasingly important. To dissipate heat, you
need to attach the CPU cooling fan and heatsink on top of the CPU. Follow
the instructions below to install the Heatsink/Fan:
1. Locate the CPU and its retention
mechanism on the motherboard.
2. Position the heatsink onto the retention mechanism.

3. Mount the fan on top of the heatsink.
Press down the fan until its four clips
get wedged in the holes of the retention mechanism.
4. Press the two levers down to fasten
the fan. Each lever can be pressed
down in only ONE direction.

Connectors
The mainboard provides connectors to connect to FDD, IDE HDD, case,
audio, LAN, USB Ports, and CPU/System fans.
Floppy Disk Drive Connector: FDD1
The mainboard provides a standard floppy disk drive connector that
supports 360K, 720K, 1.2M, 1.44M and 2.88M floppy disk types.
Fan Power Connectors: CFAN1/SFAN1
The CFAN1 (processor fan) & SFAN1 (system fan) support system cooling fan with +12V. It supports three-pin head connector. When connecting
the wire to the connectors, always take note that the red wire is the positive
and should be connected to the +12V, the black wire is Ground and should be
connected to GND. If the mainboard has a System Hardware Monitor chipset
on-board, you must use a specially designed fan with speed sensor to take
advantage of the CPU fan control.

Chassis Intrusion Switch Connector: JCI1 (Optional)
This connector is connected to a 2-pin chassis switch. If the chassis is
opened, the switch will be short. The system will record this status and show
a warning message on the screen. To clear the warning, you must enter the
BIOS utility and clear the record.

MSI Reminds You...
If you don’t want to connect to the front audio
header, pins 5 & 6, 9 & 10 have to be jumpered in
order to have signal output directed to the rear
audio ports. Otherwise, the Line-Out connector on
the back panel will not function.

Front USB Connector: JUSB1
The mainboard provides one USB 2.0 pin header JUSB1 (optional USB
2.0 bracket available) that is compliant with Intel® I/O Connectivity Design
Guide. USB 2.0 technology increases data transfer rate up to a maximum
throughput of 480Mbps, which is 40 times faster than USB 1.1, and is ideal
for connecting high-speed USB interface peripherals such as USB HDD, digital cameras, MP3 players, printers, modems and the like.

Jumpers
The motherboard provides the following jumpers for you to set the
computer’s function. This section will explain how to change your
motherboard’s function through the use of jumpers.
Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1
There is a CMOS RAM on board that has a power supply from external
battery to keep the data of system configuration. With the CMOS RAM, the
system can automatically boot OS every time it is turned on. If you want to
clear the system configuration, use the JBAT1 (Clear CMOS Jumper ) to clear
data.

MSI Reminds You...
You can clear CMOS by shorting 2-3 pin while the system is off.
Then return to 1-2 pin position. Avoid clearing the CMOS while
the system is on; it will damage the mainboard.

Hardware Setup
CPU Support Jumper: JP1
This jumper specifies the mainboard’s support for locked or some unlocked CPUs. Short pin 1~2 if you intend to install a locked CPU onboard.
Short pin 2~3 if you intend to install an unlocked CPU for overclocking
purposes.

Slots
The motherboard provides one AGP slot, three 32-bit Master PCI bus
slots, and one CNR slot.
AGP Slot
PCI Slots
CNR Slot
AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) Slot
The AGP slot allows you to insert the AGP graphics card. AGP is an
interface specification designed for the throughput demands of 3D graphics.
It introduces a 66MHz, 32-bit channel for the graphics controller to directly
access main memory.
PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) Slots
The PCI slots allow you to insert the expansion cards to meet your needs.
When adding or removing expansion cards, make sure that you unplug the
power supply first. Meanwhile, read the documentation for the expansion card
to make any necessary hardware or software settings for the expansion card,
such as jumpers, switches or BIOS configuration.
CNR (Communication Network Riser) Slot
The CNR slot allows you to insert the CNR expansion cards. CNR is a
specially designed network, audio, or modem riser card for ATX family
motherboards. Its main processing is done through software and controlled
by the motherboard’s chipset.

PCI Interrupt Request Routing
The IRQ, acronym of interrupt request line and pronounced I-R-Q, are
hardware lines over which devices can send interrupt signals to the
microprocessor. The PCI IRQ pins are typically connected to the PCI bus INT
A# ~ INT D# pins as follows:
Order 1
Order 2
Order 3
Order 4
