Preparing the Motherboard

Installing the CPU

Be very careful when handling the CPU. Hold the processor only by the edges and do not touch the bottom of the processor.

Use the following procedure to install the CPU onto the motherboard.

1.Unhook the socket lever by pushing down andaway from the socket.

2.Lift the load plate. There is a protective socket cover on the load plate to protect the socket when there is no CPU installed.

3.Remove the protective socket cover from the load plate.

4.Remove the processor from its protective cover, making sure you hold it only by the edges.

It is a good idea to save the cover so that whenever you remove the CPU, you have a safe place to store it.

5.Align the notches in the processor with the notches on the socket.

6.Lower the processor straight down into the socket with out tilting or sliding it into the socket

Note: Make sure the CPU is fully seated and level in the socket.

Align notches with

notches on the CPU

7. Close the load plate over the CPU and press down while you close and engage the socket lever.

Installing the CPU heat sink/fan

There are many different heat sink types that can be used with this motherboard. Follow the instruction that came with your fan assembly. Be sure that the fan orientation is correct for your chassis type and your fan assembly.

Installing System Memory (DIMMs)

Your new motherboard has two 1.8V 240-pinslots for DDR2 memory. These slots support 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB DDR2 technologies. There must be at least one memory bank populated to ensure normal operation.

*Any of the two DIMM slots may be used as primary if only using one memory module.

1.Unlock a DIMM slot by pressing the module clips outward.

2.Align the memory module to the DIMM slot, and insert the module vertically into the DIMM slot. The plastic clips at both sides of the DIMM slot automatically lock the DIMM into the connector.

Installing the Motherboard

The sequence of installing the motherboard into the chassis depends on the chassis you are using and if you are replacing an existing motherboard or working with an empty chassis. Determine if it would be easier to make all the connections prior to this step or to secure the motherboard and then make all the connections.

Use the following procedure to install the I/O shield and secure the motherboard into the chassis.

Note: Be sure that the CPU fan assembly has enough clearance for the chassis covers to lock into place and for the expansion cards. Also make sure the CPU Fan assembly is aligned with the vents on the covers.

Installing the I/O Shield

The motherboard kit comes with an I/O shield that is used to block radio frequency transmissions, protects internal components from dust, foreign objects, and promotes correct airflow within the chassis.

Before installing the motherboard, install the I/O shield from the inside of the chassis. Press the I/O shield into place and make sure it fits securely. If the I/O shield does not fit into the chassis, you would need to obtain the proper size from the chassis supplier.

Securing the Motherboard into a System Case

Most computer chassis have a base with mounting studs or spacers to allow the motherboard to be secured to the chassis and help to prevent short circuits. If there are studs that do not align with a mounting hole on the motherboard, it is recommended that you remove that stud to prevent the possibility of a short circuit.

1.Carefully place the motherboard onto the studs/spacers located inside the chassis.

2.Align the mounting holes with the studs/spacers.

3.Align the connectors to the I/O shield.

4.Ensure that the fan assembly is aligned with the chassis vents according to the fan assembly instruction.

5.Secure the motherboard with a minimum of six screws.

Po wer Con nection s

This motherboard requires an ATX power supply. Make sure yo ur power sup ply can provide enough wattage to power all t he compone nts you will be installing.

24-pinATX Pow er (PWR1)

PWR1 is t e main power supply connector located along the edg e of the board next to the DIMM slots. Make sure that the pow er supply cable and pins are properly aligned with the connector on the motherboard. Firmly plug the power supply cable into the c onnector and make sure it is secure.

PWR1 connect or Plug power cable from system power supply to PWR1

8-pinATX 12V Power (PWR2)

PWR2, the4-PinATX 1 2V power connection, is used to provid e power to th e CPU. Align the pins to the connector and press firmly until seated. The conn ection is notc hed and will only fit in one way.

F DD Connec tor

The mothe rboard suppo rts a standard 360K, 720K, 1.2M, 1.44m , and a 2.88M floppy disk drive (FD D).

C onnecting IDE Hard Disk Drives

The IDE connector supports Ultra ATA 133/100/6 6 IDE hard d isk drives.

Connect th e cable end w ith a single c onnector to th e motherboa rd.

If you inst all two hard disk drives, yo u must configure the second drive as a slave device b y setting its jumper accordingly. Refer to the hard disk document ation for the jumper settings.

C onnecting S erial ATA Cables

The Serial ATA II connector is used to connect the Serial ATA II device to the m otherboard. These connect ors support the thin Serial ATA II c ables for primary storage d evices. The current Ser ial ATA II interface allows up to 300MB /s data transfer rat e.

There are four serial ATA co nnectors on the motherboard. These c onnectors sup port RAID 0, RAID 1.

C onnecting Internal He aders

Please refer to #9 of in the table of Figure 1. e-7010/610i Motherbo ard

Layout for the location of the Front Panel Headers.

Front Panel Header

The front panel header on this motherboard is one connector used to connect the following fo ur cables:


Attach the front pan el power LE D cable to the PWR LED connector. Th e Power LED indicates the system’s status.


Attach the power b utton cable fr om the case t o these two pins. Pressing the powerbutton on the front panel t urns the system on off rather than using the power su pply button.


Attach the hard disk drive indicator LED cable to these two pins. The H DD indicator LED indicates the activity status of the hard disks.


Attach the Reset switch cable from the front panel of the case to these two pins. The system restarts whe n the RESET switch is pressed.

Note: Some chassis do not have all four cables. Be sure to m atch the na me on the co nnectors to the corresponding pins.

USB Headers

The mothe rboard contains 10-pinint ernal USB hea der connector(s). These can be used for a front panel U SB connection or USB bracket.


The audio connector supports the HD audio standard. Most cases come with a 10 pin standard block which will align and plug directly in to the header. In some cases there will be individual plugs which will need to be plugged in.

Fan Connections

There are two types fan connections, the system fan and the CPU fan. The fan speed can be detected and viewed in the PC Health Status section of the CMOS Setup. Both fans are automatically turned off after the system enters S3, S4 and S5 mode.

Note that the CPU fan cable can be either a 3-pinor a4-pinconnector. Connect a3-pinconnector to pins 1, 2, and 3 on the motherboard connector.
