This motherboard is electrostatic sensitive. Do not touch without wearing proper safety item and make sure to disconnect the power cable from the power source before performing any work on your motherboard. Not doing so may result in electrical shock! 2-1 Installing a CPU Processor for Socket 478 The Intel® Socket 478, designed for the Pentium 4 processor, has been incorporated as a standard motherboard specification. To insert your CPU into the Socket 478 please follow the steps below: 1. Locate the 478-pin CPU socket on the motherboard. 2. Unlock the socket by pressing the lever sideways, and then open it up to a 90-degree angle. 3. Locate a Gold Mark on the top surface of the CPU, which is close to one of the CPU corners. The same corner may also be cut off, leaving a noticeable notch in the CPU's corner. These markings indicate Pin 1 on the CPU. 4. Gently insert the CPU with Gold Mark/Pin 1 at the same corner of Socket 478, which is located close to the end of the lever. Allow the weight of the CPU to push itself into place. Do not apply extra pressure as doing so may result in damage to your CPU. 5. When the CPU is correctly inserted, close the lever with your finger on top of the CPU to make sure the CPU is properly embedded into the socket. 6. Insert an appropriate heat sink and fan for proper heat dissipation. Installing a standard Intel® specified heat sink with cooling fan is necessary for proper heat dissipation from your CPU. Failing to install these items may result in overheating and possible damage to your CPU. In order to boot up with a newly installed CPU, AC Power must be switched off before installation. 4 Chapter 2 2-2 Setting Your CPU’s Parameters “Hyper-Threading Technology” Basic requirements for Hyper-Threading Technology: - CPU: An Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor with HT Technology; - Chipset: An Intel® Chipset that supports HT Technology; - BIOS: A BIOS that supports HT Technology and has it enabled; and - OS: An operating system that supports HT Technology.

It is no longer necessary to make many jumper settings as on conventional motherboard. After installing all your hardware into your PC system, you can manually configure your CPU clock ratio and CPU clock according to your processor’s specifications. After turning on your system’s power, enable the CMOS Setup Utility by pressing the delete key when your BIOS identification screen appears, then go to the Frequency/ Voltage control option and select your CPU clock ratio and CPU clock speed (please refer to Chapter3 for more details). How to Derive your CPU Core Speed? � CPU Core Speed = CPU Clock * Core/Bus Ratio You do not need to change any voltage settings because this board will automatically set your CPU voltage. Any attempt to operate beyond product specifications is not recommended. We are not responsible for damages caused by inadequate operation or settings beyond product specifications. 6 Chapter 2 2-3 Main Memory Configuration The DDR SDRAM memory system consists of two banks and can support the memory size up to 1 GB per DIMM. If you only use one bank, it does not matter which one you use and if you use two or more banks, it does not matter which bank you install first. To install your DDR Modules please follow these steps: 1. Unlock a DIMM socket by pressing the retaining clips outward. The DDR Modules has only one notch at the center of module. The DDR module will only fit in the right position. 2. Insert the DDR Module vertically into the DIMM slot, with the correct alignment. Then push it in until the golden finger on the memory module is deeply inserted into the socket. 3. The plastic clip on each side of the DIMM slot will automatically close to hold the DDR Modules in place. 7 Chapter 2 2-4 Connector and Jumper Settings Connectors are used to link the system board with other parts of the system, including the power supply, the keyboard, and the various controllers on the front-panel of the system case. The power supply connector is the last connection to be made while installing a motherboard. Before connecting the power supply, please make sure it is not connected to the power source. PW1 / 2 (ATX Power Supply Connector) The power cord leading from the system's power supply to the external power source must be the very last part connected when assembling a system. The ATX power supply provides a single 20-pin connector interface, which incorporates standard +/-5V, +/-12V, optional 3.3V and Soft-power signals. The Soft power signal, a 5V trickle supply is continuously supplied when AC power is available. When the system is in the Soft-Off mode, this trickle supply maintains the system in its minimum power state. The ATX 12V power supply has a new +12V (4-pin) and +5V/3.3V (6-pin) auxiliary power connector to enable the delivery of more +12 VDC and +5/3.3V VDC current to the motherboard. Power-On By Modem While in Soft-Off state, if an external modem ring-up signal occurs, the system activates and can be remotely accessed. You may enable this function in the BIOS's Power Management Setup menu. (See section 3. 5) 8 Chapter 2 Blinking LED in Suspend Mode While in Suspend mode, the LED light on the front panel of your computer will flash. Suspend mode is entered by pressing the Override Power Button, pushing the Green button on your ATX case, or enabling the Power Management and Suspend Mode options in BIOS's Power Management menu. (See section 3.5) Poly-fuse Over Current Protection The poly-fuse protects the system from dangerous voltages that the system might be exposed to via the keyboard or USB connector. In case of such exposure, the poly-fuse will immediately be disconnected from the circuit, just like a normal fuse. After being disconnected for a certain period of time, the poly-fuse will return to its normal state. Then the keyboard or USB connector can function properly again. Unlike conventional fuses, the poly-fuse does not have to be replaced, relieving the user from such inconveniences. CN1A (Front Panel Connector) 1. PWR-SW (Over-ride Power Button Connector) The power button on the ATX chassis can be used as a normal power switch as well as a device to activate Advanced Power Management Suspend mode. This is a power-saving mode used for saving electricity when the computer is idle for long periods of time. The Soft-OFF by PWR-BTTN function in BIOS's Power Management Setup menu must be set to [Delay 4 Sec.] to activate this function. When the Soft-OFF by PWR-BTTN function is enabled, pushing the power button rapidly will switch the system to Suspend mode. Any occurrence of external activities such as pressing a key on the keyboard or moving the mouse will bring the system back to Full-On. Pushing the button while in Full-On mode for more than [4 seconds] will switch the system completely off. See Over-ride Power Button Operation diagram. 9 Chapter 2 2. P-LED (Power LED Connector) The power indicator LED shows the system's power status. It is important to pay attention to the correct cable and pin orientation (i.e. be careful not to reverse the order of these two connectors.) 3. G-BTN/G-LED (Green Button Switch/LED Connector) Some ATX cases provide a Green button switch, which is used to put the system in Suspend mode. While in Suspend mode, the power supply to the system is reduced to a trickle, the CPU clock is stopped, and the CPU core is in its minimum power state. The system is activated whenever the keyboard or mouse is touched. The system resumes in different ways as defined by Power Management Setup screen in BIOS. 4. RESET (System Reset Switch Connector) This connector should be connected to the reset switch on the front panel of the system case. The reset switch allows you to restart the system without turning the power off. 5. SPEAKER (Speaker Connector) This 4-pin connector connects to the case-mounted speakers. 6.

Explanation of the DRAM timing and chipset features setup is lengthy, highly technical and beyond the scope of this manual. Below are some abbreviated descriptions of the functions in this setup menu. DRAM Timing Selectable The function allows you to enable or disable the DRAM timing by SPD. It is recommended to keep the default setting for a stable system operation. CAS Latency Time This item controls the latency between DRAM read command and the time the data actually becomes available. Active to Precharge Delay This item controls the number of DRAM clocks used for DRAM parameters. DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay This item controls the latency between DRAM active command and read/write command. 25 Chapter 3 DRAM RAS# Precharge This item controls the idle clocks after issuing precharge command to the DRAM. System BIOS Cacheable Enabling this function allows caching of the system BIOS ROM at F0000h-FFFFFh, resulting in better system performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a system error may result. It is advised to leave this setting. Caching the system BIOS results in better performance than shadowing the system BIOS. Video BIOS Cacheable Enabling this function will allows caching of the video RAM, resulting in better system performance. However, if any programs write to this memory area, a system error may occur. Memory Hole at 15M-16M Enabling this function will reserve the memory address space between 15MB and 16MB for ISA expansion cards. However, it will also result in not allowing the system to have access to memory above 16MB. Please note that some expansion cards require this setting to be enabled. The default setting is Disabled. If Auto Configuration is enabled, you must set the DRAM timing function to 60ns or 70ns, depending on the type of DRAM you install. Delayed Transaction Available options: [Disabled] and [Enabled]. Delay Prior to Thermal Available options: None, 4, 8, 16, and 32 min. AGP Aperture Size This function determines the amount of system memory that is given to the AGP card. Options range from 4MB to 256MB. This is a dynamic memory allotment in that the AGP card will only use the amount of memory that it needs. The remaining memory, which is not in use, will be available for the system. For example, if 16MB is allotted to the AGP card and the card only needs 8MB, the remaining 8MB will be available for system use. On-Chip VGA This enables / disables the onboard VGA functions. By default it is set to [Enabled]. On-Chip Frame Buffer Size The onboard VGA will share system’s memory buffer. You may adjust the size of the shared buffer size. Available options: [1MB], [8MB] 26 Chapter 3 Flash BIOS Protection The motherboard manufacturer developed BIOS protection technology that protects the System BIOS from accidental corruption by unauthorized users or computer viruses.

Any attempt to operate beyond product specifications is not recommended. We do not guarantee the damages or risks caused by inadequate operation or beyond product specifications. 35 Chapter 3 3-9 Load Fail-Safe Defaults Load Fail-Safe Defaults loads the default BIOS values directly from the CMOS Setup Utility menu (Figure3-1). These settings should be used to bring the system back to a functional level if the system does not respond to the Optimized Defaults. 3-10 Load Optimized Defaults Load Optimized Defaults loads the default system values directly from the CMOS Setup Utility menu (Figure3-1). If the stored record created by the setup program becomes corrupted and therefore unusable, these defaults will be loaded automatically when you turn on the computer. 3-11 Supervisor Password & User Password Setting There are four different variables that control password settings. The first two are located under the Security Option function in BIOS Features Setup Menu (Figure 3-1). When the Security Option function is set to Setup, a password is required to enter BIOS and change BIOS settings. When the Security Option function is set to System, a password is required to enter both BIOS and the computer's operating system (for example Windows 98) found on the boot drive. The third and fourth variables are user password and supervisor password selected in BIOS (Figure 3-1). The main purpose of separating user and supervisor is to allow only the supervisor to have control over the settings in BIOS. The user, on the other hand, is only allowed to access the computer's operating system and change the user password in BIOS. When there is no supervisor password set, the user password controls access to all BIOS settings. 36 Chapter 3 3-12 Save and Exit Setup If you select this and type [Y] (for Yes) followed by [Enter], the values entered in the setup utilities will be recorded in the CMOS memory of the BIOS chip. 3-13 Exit Without Saving Selecting this option and pressing [Y] followed by [Enter] key lets you exit the Setup program without recording any new values or changing old ones. 37 Chapter 4 Chapter 4 DRIVER Setup Insert the support CD that come with your motherboard into your CD-ROM drive and double-click the CD drive icon in [My computer] to open the setup screen. 4-1 Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility 1.
