WARNING!

Computer motherboards and expansion cards contain very delicate Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To protect them against damage from static electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you work on your computer.

1.

Unplug your computer when working on the inside.

2.

Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal object, such as

the power supply case.

3.

Hold components by the edges and try not touch the IC chips, leads or connectors, or other components.

4.

Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the components whenever the components are separated from the system.

5.

Ensure that the ATX power supply is switched off before you plug in or remove the ATX power connector on the motherboard.

Installing the motherboard to the chassis…

If the motherboard has mounting holes, but they don’t line up with the holes on the base and there are no slots to attach the spacers, do not become alarmed you can still attach the spacers to the mounting holes. Just cut the bottom portion of the spacers (the spacer may be a little hard to cut off, so be careful of your hands). In this way you can still attach the motherboard to the base without worrying about short circuits. Sometimes you may need to use the plastic springs to isolate the screw from the motherboard PCB surface, because the circuit wire may be near by the hole. Be careful, don’t let the screw contact any printed circuit write or parts on the PCB that are near the fixing hole, otherwise it may damage the board or cause board malfunctioning.

Hardware Installation Process

Chapter 2 Hardware Installation Process

2-1: Installing Processor and CPU Haet Sink

Before installing the processor and cooling fan, adhere to the following cautions:

1. The processor will overheat without the heatsink and/or fan, resulting in permanent irreparable damage.

2. Never force the processor into the socket.

3. Apply thermal grease on the processor before placing cooling fan.

4. Please make sure the CPU type is supported by the motherboard.

5. If you do not match the CPU socket Pin 1 and CPU cut edge well, it will cause improper installation. Please change the insert orientation.

2-1-1: Installing CPU

Step 1. Check the CPU pins are not bent. Raise the locking lever next to the socket prior to installing the CPU.

Step 2. The pin 1 location is designated on the CPU by a copper triangle that corresponds to a triangle marking on the socket as shown in Fig. 2.

Step 3. Insert the CPU with the correct orientation. The CPU only fits in one orientation. When CPU is placed into socket properly, push the locking lever back into locked position.

Fig.1

Raise locking lever at a 90 degree angle.

Pin One

Fig.2

Pin 1 location on the socket and CPU.

Gently place the CPU into position and amke sure the CPU pins fit perfectly into the holes. Once the

CPU is positioned into its socket, place one finger down on the middle of the CPU and gently press the metal lever back into its original position.

GA-3PXSL-RH Motherboard

2-1-2: Installing CPU Cooler Fan

Fig.1

Before installing the CPU cooler fan, please first add an even layer of heat paste on the surface of the CPU. Install all the CPU cooler components

(Please refer to the cooler manual for detailed installation instructions).

Fig.2

Please connect the CPU cooler fan power connector to the CPU_FAN connector located on the motherboard.

Hardware Installation Process

2-2: Install memory modules

GA-3PXSL-RH has 4 dual inline memory module (DIMM) socets. It supports the Dual Channel

Technology. The BIOS will automatically detects memory type and size. To install the memory module, just push it vertically into the DIMM socket .The DIMM module can only fit in one direction due to the notch. Wrong orientation will cause improper installation. Please change the insert orientation.

Memory size can vary between sockets.

CHANNEL B

CHANNEL A

1 1

GA-3PXSL-RH Motherboard

Installation Step:

1. Unlock a DIMM socket by pressing the retaining clips outwards.

2. Aling a DIMM on the socket such that the notch on the DIMM exactly match the notches in the socket.

3. Firmly insert the DIMMinto the socket until the retaining clips snap back in place.

4. When installing the DIMM into the DIMM socket, we recommend to populate one DIMM in

Channel A module and one in Channel B module for best performance.

Please note that each logical DIMM must be made of two identical DIMMs having the same device size on each and the same DIMM size.

5. Reverse the installation steps when you wish to remove the DIMM module.

This BIOS items provides function for configuring all of the boot and Plug & Play compatible devices. Normally, user should set this items Auto, then the BIOS can automatically assign the IRQs and DMA channels. All the IRQ and DMA assignment fields should disappear as a result.

But if you are having problems assigning the resources automatically via the BIOS, you can select Manual to reveal the IRQ and DMA assignment fields. Then you can assign each IRQ or DMA channel to either Legacy ISA or PCI/ISA PnP devices.

Options Auto (ESCD), Manual. Default value is Auto (ESCD).

PCI VGA Palette Snoop

This option is only useful if you use an MPEG card or an add-on card that makes use of the graphics card's Feature Connector. It corrects incorrect color reproduction by "snooping" into the graphics card's framebuffer memory and modifying (synchronizing) the information delivered from the graphics card's Feature Connector to the MPEG or add-on card. It will also solve the problem of display inversion to a black screen after using the MPEG card.
