CAUTION!

1.For power-saving’ssake, it is strongly recommended to enable AMD’s Cool ‘n’ QuietTM technology under Windows system. See APPENDIX on page 43 to enable AMD’s Cool ‘n’ QuietTM technology. Since not all K8939-pinCPU can support AMD’s Cool ‘n’ QuietTM technology, please check AMD’s website for details.

2.This motherboard supports Untied Overclocking Technology. Please read “Untied Overclocking Technology” on page 25 for details.

3.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 14 for proper installation.

4.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.

5.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.

6.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 11 for proper connection.

7.Before installing SATAII hard disk to SATAII connector, please read the “SATAII Hard Disk Setup Guide” on page 22 to adjust your SATAII hard disk drive to SATAII mode. Besides, you are allowed to downgrade the SATAII hard disk to SATA hard disk (from SATAII 3Gb/s down to SATA 1.5Gb/s), and connect it to the SATAII connector. You can also connect SATA hard disk to SATAII connector directly.

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

9.Microsoft® Windows® VistaTM driver is not ready yet. We will update it to our website in the future. Please visit our website for Microsoft® Windows® VistaTM driver and related information.
