Installling the CPU heatsink and fan
The Intel Pentium® 4 LGA775 processor requires a specially designed heatsink
and fan assembly to ensure optimum thermal condition and performance.
®
•
Install the motherboard to the chassis before you install the CPU fan and
heatsink assembly
•
When you buy a boxed Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, the package includes
the CPU fan and heatsink assembly. If you buy a CPU separately, make
sure that you use only Intel®‑certified multi‑directional heatsink and fan.
•
Your Intel® Pentium® 4 heatsink and fan assembly comes in a push-pin
design and requires no tool to install.
If you purchased a separate CPU heatsink and fan assembly, make sure that
a Thermal Interface Material is properly applied to the CPU heatsink or CPU
before you install the heatsink and fan assembly.
To install the CPU heatsink and fan:
1.
Place the heatsink on top of the
installed CPU, making sure that the
four fasteners match the holes on
the motherboard.

System memory
1.7.1
Overview
The motherboard comes with two Double Data Rate 2 (DDR2) Dual Inline Memory
Modules (DIMM) sockets.
A DDR2 module has the same physical dimensions as a DDR DIMM but has a
240-pin footprint compared to the 184-pin DDR DIMM. DDR2 DIMMs are notched
differently to prevent installation on a DDR DIMM socket.
The figure illustrates the location of the DDR2 DIMM sockets:

®
Memory configurations
You may install 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB unbuffered non-ECC DDR2
DIMMs into the DIMM sockets.
•
Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum
compatibility, it is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the
same vendor. Refer to the DDR2 Qualified Vendors List on the next page
for details.
•
Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than 4 GB
system memory when you installed two 2 GB DDR2 memory modules.

Jumpers
Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in
CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup
parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button
cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup
information such as system passwords.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
3.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins
2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.

6.
Remove the onboard battery.
Re-install the battery.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to
re-enter data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper
default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware chip that you can update
using the provided utility described in section “2.1 Managing and updating your
BIOS.”
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring
your system, or prompted to “Run Setup”. This section explains how to configure
your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you can change the
configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you can enable the
security password feature or change the power management settings. This
requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup program so that the
computer can recognize these changes and record them in the CMOS RAM of the
firmware hub.
The firmware hub on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start up
the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program.
Press <Del> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility;
otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing <Ctrl+Alt+Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can
also restart by turning the system off and then back on. Do this last option only if
the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being a
menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus and make
your selections from the available options using the navigation keys.
•
The default BIOS settings for this motherboard apply for most conditions
to ensure optimum performance. If the system becomes unstable after
changing any BIOS settings, load the default settings to ensure system
compatibility and stability. Select the Load Default Settings item under the
Exit Menu. See section “2.8 Exit Menu.”

RAID configurations
The motherboard supports the following RAID configurations.
RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and write
data in parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same work as a
single drive but at a sustained data transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone,
thus improving data access and storage. Use of two new identical hard disk drives
is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one
drive to a second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management software
directs all applications to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of
the data in the other drive. This RAID configuration provides data protection and
increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use two new drives or use an
existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new drive must be of the same
size or larger than the existing drive.
JBOD (Spanning) stands for Just a Bunch of Disks and refers to hard disk drives
that are not yet configured as a RAID set. This configuration stores the same
data redundantly on multiple disks that appear as a single disk on the operating
system. Spanning does not deliver any advantage over using separate disks
independently and does not provide fault tolerance or other RAID performance
benefits.
ASUS P5VD2-VM/P5V-VM SE DH
3-
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a RAID set,
copy first the RAID driver from the support CD to a floppy disk before you install
an operating system to a selected hard disk drive. Refer to section “3.4 Creating
a RAID driver disk” for details.
3.3.1
Installing hard disks
The motherboard supports RAID function on Serial ATA hard disk drives. For
optimal performance, install identical drives of the same model and capacity when
creating a disk array.
Installing Serial ATA (SATA) hard disks
To install the SATA hard disks for a RAID configuration:
1.
Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays.
3.
Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive.
2.
Connect the SATA signal cables.
Refer to the RAID controllers user manual in the motherboard support CD for
detailed information on RAID configurations. See section “3.2.5 Manuals menu”.

Resetting disks to non-RAID
An HDD that has been previously configured as part of another RAID set in
another platform is called a broken RAID HDD. When you install a broken RAID
HDD, you cannot select this HDD when configuring a RAID set through the
JMB363 utility.
If you still want to use this broken RAID HDD as part of the RAID set configured
through the JMB363, you may do so by resetting the disk to non-RAID. You will,
however, lose all data and previous RAID configurations.
To reset disks to non-RAID:
1. In the main JMB363 RAID BIOS menu, highlight Revert HDD to non‑RAID
using the up/down arrow key then press <Enter>.

Repairing a Mirror conflict
A Mirror conflict occurs when one or both disks in a RAID 1 (Mirror) configuration
are unplugged from the system, then plugged in again. Since both disks contain
exactly the same data, the system will be unable to determine which of the two
is the source drive. This option allows you to set the source drive and rebuild the
Mirror drive according to the contents of the source drive.
To repair a Mirror conflict:
1. In the main JMB363 RAID BIOS menu, highlight Repair Mirror Conflict using
the up/down arrow key then press <Enter>.

The selected HDD shows a
sign before it.
Using the <TAB>, move to the RAID Disk Drive List menu and highlight the
RAID set that you want to rebuild. Press <Del> to begin rebuilding the Mirror
configuration.
A status bar at the bottom of the screen shows the progress of the rebuilding.
