section are:
q Installing Memory Modules
q Installing the motherboard
q Installing the I/O Shield
qConnecting cables and setting switches
Safety Instructions
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury, always follow basic safety precautions.
Remember to remove power from your computer by disconnecting the AC main source before
removing or installing any equipment from/to the computer chassis.

Intel® NM10 series Motherboard
Installing Memory Modules
This motherboard accommodates two memory modules. It can support two 240-pin DDR2
800/667. The total memory capacity is 4 GB. You must install at least one module in any of the
two slots. Refer to the following recommendations to install the memory modules.
qOne DIMM: Install it into slot 1 or 2. You can install the DIMM into any slot, however, slot 1
is preferred.
qTwo DIMMs: Install them into slot 1 and slot 2

DDRII-1
Note that a memory module has a notch, so it can only fit in one direction. Refer to the following
procedure to install memory modules into the slots on the motherboard.
1.Unlock a DIMM slot by pressing the module clips outward.
2.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.
10
Installing the Motherboard
The sequence of installing the motherboard into the chassis depends on the chassis you are
using and if you are replacing an existing motherboard or working with an empty chassis. 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 chassis covers
to lock into place and for the expansion cards. Also make sure the CPU Fan assem
-bly is aligned with the vents on the covers.
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.
Securing the Motherboard into the Chassis
Most computer chassis 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 with spacers.
1.Carefully place the motherboard onto the studs/spacers located inside the chassis.
2.Align the mounting holes with the studs/spacers.
3.Align the connectors to the I/O shield.
4.Ensure that the fan assembly is aligned with the chassis vents according to the fan assembly
instruction.
5.Secure the motherboard with screws.

S/PDIF
Short for Sony/Philips Digital Interface, a standard audio file transfer format. S/PDIF
allows the transfer of digital audio signals from one device to another without having
to be converted first to an analog format. Maintaining the viability of a digital signal
prevents the quality of the signal from degrading when it is converted to analog.

Microphone
This page is designed to provide you better microphone / recording quality.
Below picture indicates both “Noise Suppression” & “Acoustic Echo Cancellation”
are both enabled.
Noise Suppression
If you feel that the background noise, especially the sound generated from the fan
inside PC, is too loud? Try “Noise Suppression”, which allows you to cut off and
suppress disturbing noise.
Beam Forming
Also known as “directional recording”, this option lets you do the following: Once
beam forming is enabled; only the sound from certain direction will be recorded. You
will get the best quality if you chose 90° position, which we recommend you to use,
this effectively means that you speak right into the microphone.
Note: A Stereo Microphone is required when using Beam Forming function.
Acoustic Echo Cancellation
This function prevents playback sound from being recorded by microphone together
with your sound. For example, you might have chance to use VOIP function through
Internet with your friends. The voice of your friend will come out from speakers
(playback). However, the voice of your friend might also be recorded into your
microphone then go back to your friend through Internet. In that case, your friend
will hear his/her own voice again. With AEC (Acoustic Echo Cancellation) enabled at
your side, your friend can enjoy the benefit with less echo.
