Feature Highlight

CPU

Supports Intel® Socket 478 Pentium® 4 (Northwood) 1.6GHz~3.20GHz+ with 400/533/800MHz Front Side Bus (FSB) designed for Socket 478 technology.

Chipset

Intel 865 chipset is a Graphics Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) designed for use with the Pentium 4 processor with 512-KBL2 cache on0.13-micronprocessor. It provides CPU, DDR, AGP, Hub, CSA Interfaces and integrated graphics with display interfaces. The CPU interface supports Pentium 4 processor subset of the Extended Mode of the Scalable Bus Protocol. The GMCH memory interface supports one up to two channels of DDR (for 865G and 865PE chipsets), and the AGP interface supports 0.8/1.5V signaling with 8X/4X data transfers and 8X/4X AGP Fast Writes. The integrated graphics controller provides 3D, 2D, and display capabilities while using a portion of system memory for graphics memory (UMA) to provide a cost effective, high performance graphics solution. The Intel 865 platform supports the fifth generation I/O Controller Hub.

The ICH5 integrates an Ultra ATA 100 controller, two Serial ATA host controllers, one EHCI host controller and four UHCI host controllers supporting eight external USB 2.0 ports, LPC interface controller; flash BIOS interface controller, PCI interface controller, AC’97 digital controller, integrated LAN controller, an ASF controller and a hub interface for communication with the 865 GMCH.

Memory

With Intel 865G/865PE chipset, this motherboard can support dual channel Double-Data-Rate (DDR) SDRAM (for AX4SG and AX4SPE series). The dual channel mode allows chipsets to get data in 128 bit and zero wait state bursting between the RAM. The data transfer at 266/333/400MHz. The four slots of DDR SDRAM can be composed of an arbitrary mixture of 64, 128, 256, 512 MB or 1GB DDR SDRAM and maximum up to 4GB. For AX4SPB series, it only has two RAM slots and support maximum up to 2GB in Single Channel mode.

Expansion Slots

Including five 32-bit/33MHzPCI and oneAGP 8X/4X slots. The PCI local bus throughput can be up to 132MB/s. Of five PCI slots provided, all of them are master PCI slots with arbitration and decoding for all integrated functions and LPC bus. AOpen i865 Family motherboard includes one AGP expansion slot for a bus mastering AGP graphic card. TheAccelerated Graphics Port (AGP) specification provides a new level of video display sophistication and speed. The AGP video cards support data transfer rate up to 2112MB/s. For AX4SG series, you may have ADD card cabled to this AGP slot to providehigh-speeddigital connection for digital displays.

AGP Protection Technology

With AGP Protection Technology implemented, this motherboard will automatically detect the voltage of AGP card and prevent your chipsets from being burnt out.

Hyper-ThreadingTechnology

Support Hyper-ThreadingTechnology which brings additional intelligence to systems so that multiple tasks received from the processor can be managed and prioritized more effectively.

Watch Dog ABS

Includes AOpen “Watch Dog ABS” function that can auto-resetsystem in 4.8 seconds when you fail the system overclocking.

1MHz Stepping CPU Frequency Adjustment

Provides “1MHz Stepping CPU Frequency Adjustment” function in the BIOS. This magic function allows you to adjust CPU FSB frequency from 100~400MHz by 1MHz stepping adjustment, and helps your system get maximum performance.

LAN Port (for –ULand–UNseries)

On the strength of Gigabit LAN controller (-ULseries) or Realtek 10/100 Mbps LAN controller(-UNseries) on board, this motherboard provides 10/100 Mbps Ethernet (for–ULseries, it is 10/100/1000 Mbps) for office and home use. For–Useries motherboard, it does not support LAN onboard.

Ultra DMA 33/66/100 Bus IDE

Comes with an on-boardPCI Bus Master IDE controller with two connectors that support four IDE devices in two channels, supports Ultra DMA 33/66/100, PIO Modes 3 and 4 and Bus Master IDE DMA Mode 5, and supports Enhanced IDE devices.

Serial ATA

Integrated in ICH5 that contains independent DMA operation on two ports, the SATA controllers are completely software transparent with the IDE interface, while providing a lower pin count and higher performance. The ICH5 SATA interface supports data transfer rates up to 150MB/s.

On-boardAC’97 Sound

AOpen i865 Family motherboard uses RealTek AC’97 CODEC Realtek ALC655 chip. This on-boardaudio includes a complete audio recording and playback system.

Eight USB 2.0 Ports

Provides four ports on the back panel and two USB 2.0 headers on the board, providing a total of eight USB 2.0 interface to connect devices such as mouse, keyboard, modem, scanner, etc.

S/PDIF Connector

S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is the newest audio transfer file format, which provides impressive quality through optical fiber and allows you to enjoy digital audio instead of analog audio.

Power Management/Plug and Play

Supports the power management function which confirms to the power-savingstandards of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star program. It also offersPlug-and-Play,which helps save users from configuration problems, thus making the system muchuser-friendlier.

Hardware Monitoring Management

Supports CPU or system fans status, temperature and voltage monitoring and alert, through the on-boardhardware monitor module.

Hardware Installation

This chapter describes jumpers, connectors and hardware devices of this motherboard.

Note: Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage your processor, disk drives, expansion boards, and other components. Always observe the following precautions before you install a system component.

1.Do not remove a component from its protective packaging until you are ready to install it.

2.Wear a wrist ground strap and attach it to a metal part of the system unit before handling a component. If a wrist strap is not available, maintain contact with the system unit throughout any procedure requiring ESD protection.
