Chapter 2. Hardware Setup

Before the Installation: Turn off the power supply switch (fully turn off the +5V standby power), or disconnect the power cord before installing or unplugging any connectors or add-oncards. Failing to do so may cause the motherboard components oradd-oncards to malfunction or damaged.

2-1.Install The Motherboard

Most computer chassis have a base with many mounting holes to allow motherboard to be securely attached on and at the same time, prevented from short circuits. There are two ways to attach the motherboard to the chassis base:

1.use with studs

2.or use with spacers

In principle, the best way to attach the board is to use with studs. Only if you are unable to do this should you attach the board with spacers. Line up the holes on the board with the mounting holes on the chassis. If the holes line up and there are screw holes, you can attach the board with studs. If the holes line up and there are only slots, you can only attach with spacers. Take the tip of the spacers and insert them into the slots. After doing this to all the slots, you can slide the board into position aligned with slots. After the board has been positioned, check to make sure everything is OK before putting the chassis back on.

ATTENTION: To prevent shorting the PCB circuit, please REMOVE the metal studs or spacers if they are already fastened on the chassis base and are without mounting-holeson the motherboard to align with.

2-2.Install CPU, Heatsink and Fan Assembly

In order to protect the contact pins, please pay attention to these notices:

1.A maximum 20 cycles of CPU installation is recommended.

2.Never touch the contact pins with fingers or any object.

3.Always put on the cap when the CPU is not in use.

1. Place the board so as to let the lever hook of the socket is on your left side. Use your left thumb and forefinger to hold the lever hook, pull it away from the retention tab.

4. Use your right thumb and forefinger to grasp the CPU package. Be sure to grasp on the edge of the substrate, and face the Pin-1indicator toward thebottom-leftside. Aim at the socket and place the CPU package vertical down into the socket.

5. Visually inspect if the CPU is seated well into the socket. The alignment key must be located in the notch of package.

2.Rotate the lever to fully open position.

3. Use your right thumb on the bottom-rightside of the load plate and lift it up to fully open position.

6. Use your left hand to hold the load plate, and use your right thumb to peel the cap off.
