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.

product features, please get them in the coming section.
1-1.1 Special Features of motherboard
CPU Thermal Throttling Technology--- (The CPU Overheat Protection Technology)
To prevent the increasing heat from damage of CPU or accidental shutdown while at high
workload, the CPU Thermal Throttling Technology will force CPU to enter partially idle
mode from 87.5% to 12.5% according to preset CPU operating temperature in BIOS (from 40
℃ to 90℃). When the system senses the CPU operating temperature reaching the preset
value, the CPU operating bandwidth will be decreased to the preset idle percentage to cool
down the processor. When at throttling mode the beeper sound can be optionally selected to
indicate it is working.
CPU Smart Fan--- The Noise Management System
It’s never been a good idea to gain the performance of your system by sacrificing its acoustics.
CPU Smart Fan Noise Management System is the answer to control the noise level needed for
now-a-day’s high performance computing system. The system will automatically increase the
fan speed when CPU operating loading is high, after the CPU is in normal operating condition,
the system will low down the fan speed for the silent operating environment. The system can
provide the much longer life cycle for both CPU and the system fans for game use and
business requirements.
CPU Vcore X-Shift--- Shift to Higher Performance
The CPU voltage can be adjusted up by 64 stages for the precisely over-clocking of extra
demanding computing performance.
DIY Clear
The CMOS Button is to facilitate the clear COMS process for power user overclocking
function. The user can easily clear or restore COMS settings by pressing down the button,
without taking trouble to remove the case and locate the jumper for clear CMOS.
OC-CON---High-polymer Solid Electrolysis Aluminum Capacitors (Optional, for HI04
series only)
The working temperature is from 55 degrees Centigrade below zero to 125 degrees
Centigrade, OC-CON capacitors possess superior physical characteristics that can be while
reducing the working temperature between 20 degrees Centigrade each time, intact extension
10 times of effective product operation lives, at not rising degrees Centigrade of working
temperatures each time a relative one, life of product decline 10% only too.

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 will 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 <+>/<–> keys when you want to modify the BIOS parameters for the active option.

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
<Del> to enter Setup

3-12 Password Setting
You can set either supervisor or user password, or both of them. The differences are:
Supervisor password: Can enter and change the options of the setup menus.
User password: Can only enter but do not have the right to change the options of the setup
menus. When you select this function, the following message will appear at the center of the
screen to assist you in creating a password.
ENTER PASSWORD:
Type the password, up to eight characters in length, and press <Enter>. The password typed
now will clear any previously entered password from CMOS memory. You will be asked to
confirm the password. Type the password again and press <Enter>. You may also press
<Esc> to abort the selection and not enter a password.
To disable a password, just press <Enter> when you are prompted to enter the password. A
message will confirm that the password will be disabled. Once the password is disabled, the
system will boot and you can enter Setup freely.
PASSWORD DISABLED.
When a password has been enabled, you will be prompted to enter it every time you try to
enter Setup. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part of your system
configuration.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, you can also require the BIOS to request a
password every time your system is rebooted. This would prevent unauthorized use of your
computer.
You determine when the password is required within the BIOS Features Setup Menu and its
Security option. If the Security option is set to “Always”, the password will be required both
at boot and at entry to Setup. If set to “Setup”, prompting only occurs when trying to enter
Setup.
