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.

FSB1333-CPUwill operate in overclocking mode.

2.

Intel® ViivTM technology is only supported under32-bitOS of Windows®

 

XP Media Center and Windows® VistaTM Home Premium and Ultimate

 

Edition. For the minimum hardware requirements of Intel® ViivTM

 

technology, please refer to page 10 for details.

3.

About the setting of “Hyper Threading Technology”, please check page 55.

4.

This motherboard supports Untied Overclocking Technology. Please read

 

“Untied Overclocking Technology” on page 51 for details.

5.

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 18 for proper installation.

6.

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

 

corresponding memory support frequency.

7.

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-

 

bit with 64-bitCPU, there is no such limitation.

8.

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.

 

 

9.

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.

10.

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.
