Hardware Setup
Central Processing Unit: CPU
The mainboard supports Intel® Pentium® 4 Northwood processor in the
478 pin package. The mainboard uses a CPU socket called PGA478 for easy
CPU installation. When you are installing the CPU, make sure the CPU has a
heat sink and a cooling fan attached on the top to prevent overheating. If you
do not find the heat sink and cooling fan, contact your dealer to purchase and
install them before turning on the computer.

CPU Installation Procedures for Socket 478
1. Please turn off the power and
Open Lever
unplug the power cord before
installing the CPU.
2. Pull the lever sideways away
Sliding
Plate
90 degree
from the socket. Make sure
to raise the lever up to a 90degree angle.
3. Look for the cut edge. The cut
edge should point towards the
lever pivot. The CPU can only
fit in the correct orientation.
4. If the CPU is correctly
installed, the pins should be
completely embedded into the
socket and can not be seen.
Please note that any violation
of the correct installation procedures may cause permanent
damages to your mainboard.
5. Press the CPU down firmly into
the socket and close the lever.
As the CPU is likely to move
while the lever is being closed,
always close the lever with
your fingers pressing tightly
on top of the CPU to make sure
the CPU is properly and completely embedded into the
socket.

Installing the CPU Fan
As processor technology pushes to faster speeds and higher performance,
thermal management becomes increasingly important. To dissipate heat, you
need to attach the CPU cooling fan and heatsink on top of the CPU. Follow the
instructions below to install the Heatsink/Fan:
1. Locate the CPU and its retention
mechanism on the motherboard.
2. Position the heatsink onto the retention mechanism.
3. Mount the fan on top of the heatsink.
Press down the fan.
4. Press the two levers down to fasten
the fan. Each lever can be pressed
down in only ONE direction.

Hardware Setup
Memory
The mainboard provides 4 slots for 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM (Double
In-Line Memory Module) modules and supports the memory size up to 4GB.
You can install DDR400/DDR333 modules on the DDR DIMM slots (DIMM
1~4).
DDR DIMM Slots
(DIMM 1~4)
Introduction to DDR SDRAM
DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM is similar to conventional SDRAM,
but doubles the rate by transferring data twice per cycle. It uses 2.5 volts as
opposed to 3.3 volts used in SDR SDRAM, and requires 184-pin DIMM modules
rather than 168-pin DIMM modules used by SDR SDRAM. Please note that
the DDR SDRAM does not support ECC (error correcting code) and registered
DIMM.
DDR Population Rules
Install at least one DIMM module on the slots. Each DIMM slot supports
up to a maximum size of 1GB. Users can install either single- or double-sided
modules to meet their own needs. Please note that each DIMM can work
respectively for single-channel DDR, but there are some rules while using
dual-channel DDR (Please refer to the suggested DDR population table on p.
2-8). Users may install memory modules of different type and density on
2-7
MD-8088 M-ATX Mainboard
different-channel DDR DIMMs. However, the same type and density memory
modules are necessary while using dual-channel DDR, or instability may
happen.
Please refer to the following table for detailed dual-channel DDR. Other
combination not listed below will function as single-channel DDR.

MSI Reminds You...
Dual-channel DDR works ONLY in the 3 combinations listed
in the table above.
Installing DDR Modules
1. The DDR DIMM has only one notch on the center of module. The module
will only fit in the right orientation.
2. Insert the DIMM memory module vertically into the DIMM slot. Then
push it in until the golden finger on the memory module is deeply inserted
in the socket.
3. The plastic clip at each side of the DIMM slot will automatically close.

MSI Reminds You...
You can barely see the golden finger if the module is properly
inserted in the socket.

Power Supply
The mainboard supports ATX power supply for the power system. Before inserting the power supply connector, always make sure that all components are installed properly to ensure that no damage will be caused.
ATX 20-Pin Power Connector: ATX1
This connector allows you to connect to an ATX power supply. To
connect to the ATX power supply, make sure the plug of the power supply is
inserted in the proper orientation and the pins are aligned. Then push down
the power supply firmly into the connector.
ATX 12V Power Connector: JPW1
This 12V power connector is used to provide power to the CPU.

Jumpers
The motherboard provides the following jumpers for you to set the
computer’s function. This section will explain how to change your motherboard’s
function through the use of jumpers.
Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1
There is a CMOS RAM on board that has a power supply from external
battery to keep the data of system configuration. With the CMOS RAM, the
system can automatically boot OS every time it is turned on. That battery has
long life time for at least 5 years. If you want to clear the system configuration,
use the JBAT1 (Clear CMOS Jumper ) to clear data. Follow the instructions
below to clear the data:

You can clear CMOS by shorting 2-3 pin while the system is off.
Then return to 1-2 pin position. Avoid clearing the CMOS while
the system is on; it will damage the mainboard.

MD-8088 M-ATX Mainboard
Slots
The motherboard provides one AGP slot and five 32-bit PCI bus slots.
AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) Slot
The AGP slot allows you to insert the AGP graphics card. AGP is an
interface specification designed for the throughput demands of 3D graphics. It
introduces a 66MHz, 32-bit channel for the graphics controller to directly access main memory. The slot supports 8x/4x AGP card.
AGP Slot
PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) Slots
The PCI slots allow you to insert the expansion cards to meet your needs.
When adding or removing expansion cards, make sure that you unplug the
power supply first. Meanwhile, read the documentation for the expansion card
to make any necessary hardware or software settings for the expansion card,
such as jumpers, switches or BIOS configuration. The second PCI slot (in
BLUE color) supports 2 master devices.
