WARNING

Please realize that there is a certain risk involved with overclocking, including adjusting the setting in the BIOS, applying Untied Overclocking Technology, or using the thirdparty overclocking tools. Overclocking may affect your system stability, or even cause damage to the components and devices of your system. It should be done at your own risk and expense. We are not responsible for possible damage caused by overclocking.

CAUTION!

1.FSB1600-CPUwill operate in overclocking mode. If you use a FSB1600CPU on this motherboard, you need to adjust the jumpers. Please refer to page 26 for proper jumper settings. Besides, if you want to change a new CPU on this motherboard, please remove the AC power cord from your PC in advance.

2.About the setting of “Hyper Threading Technology”, please check page 47.

3.This motherboard supports Untied Overclocking Technology. Please read “Untied Overclocking Technology” on page 42 for details.

4.This motherboard supports Dual Channel Memory Technology. Before you implement Dual Channel Memory Technology, make sure to read the installation guide of memory modules on page 17 for proper installation.

5.Please check the table below for the CPU FSB frequency and its

corresponding memory support frequency.

*DDR2 1066 and DDR3 1333 memory modules will operate in overclocking mode.

*When you use a FSB1600-CPUon this motherboard, it will run at DDR2 960 if you adopt a DDR2 1066 memory module. When you use aFSB1600-CPUon this motherboard, it will run at DDR3 960 if you adopt a DDR3 1066 memory module. When you use aFSB1600-CPUon this motherboard, it will run at DDR3 1280 if you adopt a DDR3 1333 memory module.

*If you adopt a DDR2 1066 memory module and adopt a FSB1333CPU or FSB1066-CPUon this motherboard, you need to adjust the jumpers. Please refer to page 26 for proper jumper settings.

6.Due to the operating system limitation, the actual memory size may be less than 4GB for the reservation for system usage under Windows® XP and Windows® VistaTM. For Windows® XP64-bitand Windows® VistaTM 64-bitwith64-bitCPU, there is no such limitation.

7.For microphone input, this motherboard supports both stereo and mono modes. For audio output, this motherboard supports 2-channel,4- channel,6-channel,and8-channelmodes. Please check the table on page 12 for proper connection.

8.Before installing SATAII hard disk to SATAII connector, please read the “SATAII Hard Disk Setup Guide” on page 36 to adjust your SATAII hard disk drive to SATAII mode. You can also connect SATA hard disk to SATAII connector directly.

9.This motherboard supports eSATAII interface, the external SATAII specification. Please read “eSATAII Interface Introduction” on page 33 for details about eSATAII and eSATAII installation procedures.

10.Power Management for USB 2.0 works fine under Microsoft® Windows® VistaTM 64-bit /VistaTM / XP64-bit /XP SP1 or SP2 / 2000 SP4.

11.WiFi header supports WiFi+AP function with ASRock WiFi-802.11gorWiFi-802.11nmodule, aneasy-to-usewireless local area network (WLAN) adapter. It allows you to create a wireless environment and enjoy the convenience of wireless network connectivity. Please visit our

website for the availability of ASRock WiFi-802.11gorWiFi-802.11nmodule. ASRock websitehttp://www.asrock.com

12.It is a user-friendlyASRock overclocking tool which allows you to surveil your system by hardware monitor function and overclock your hardware devices to get the best system performance under Windows® environment. Please visit our website for the operation procedures of ASRock OC Tuner. ASRock website:http://www.asrock.com

13.Although this motherboard offers stepless control, it is not recommended to perform over-clocking.Frequencies other than the recommended CPU bus frequencies may cause the instability of the system or damage the CPU.

14.While CPU overheat is detected, the system will automatically shutdown. Before you resume the system, please check if the CPU fan on the motherboard functions properly and unplug the power cord, then plug it back again. To improve heat dissipation, remember to spray thermal grease between the CPU and the heatsink when you install the PC system.

15.AHCI function is not supported under Windows® 2000 OS. It is recommended to use IDE mode under Windows® 2000. Please refer to page 51 for detailed setup.
