procedures. It is recommended to use a grounded wrist strap before
handling computer components. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can
damage some components.

CPU
The VIA EPIA-N700 mainboard is packaged with a standard VIA C7 1.5
GHz NanoBGA2 processor. The processor requires a heatsink with fan to
provide sufficient cooling.
CPU Fan and System Fan: CPU_FAN and SYS_FAN
The CPU_FAN (CPU fan) and SYS_FAN (system fan) run on +12V and
maintain system cooling. When connecting the wire to the connectors,
always be aware that the red wire (positive wire) should be connected to
the +12V. The black wire is Ground and should always be connected to
GND.

Jumpers
The mainboard provides jumpers for setting some mainboard functions.
This section will explain how to change the settings of the mainboard
functions using the jumpers.
Clear CMOS
The onboard CMOS RAM stores system configuration data and has an
onboard battery power supply. To reset the CMOS settings, set the
jumper on pins 1 and 2 while the system is off. Return the jumper to
pins 2 and 3 afterwards. Setting the jumper while the system is on will
1
damage the mainboard.
