Overview

Thank you for choosing AOpen AK76D. The AK76D is AMD® Socket 462 motherboard (M/B) based on the ATX form factor featuring ALi Magik 1 chipset. With a high performance chipset built in the M/B, AK76D can support AMD® Socket 462 series Athlon® & Duron™ 600MHz~1GHz+ processor and 100/133MHz FSB (Front Side Bus). In the AGP performance, it has one AGP slot and supports AGP 1X/2X/4X mode and pipelined spilt-transaction long burst transfer up to 1066MB/sec. With high bandwidth 266MB/s 8-bit V-Link Host Controller, two PC2100 DDR SDRAM can be applied to AK76D and the maximum memory size can be up to 2GB. In addition, it still equips with two 168-pin SDRAM sockets that allow you to install PC100 or PC133 memory up to 2 GB as well. The on-board IDE controller supports Ultra DMA

33/66/100 mode and the transfer rate can go up to 100MB/s. Further flexibility can be achieved by taking advantage of the Audio/Modem Riser (AMR)

connector that allows audio and modem configuration on a single baseboard design. Besides, AK76D has an AD 1885 AC97 CODEC

chipset onboard providing high performance and Magik surround stereo sound to let people enjoy

working with it. Now, enjoy all features from AOpen AK76D.

Feature Highlight

CPU

Supports AMD® Socket 462 Athlon® & Duron™ 600MHz~1GHz+ with 100/133MHz FSB (Front Side Bus) designed for Socket technology.

Chipset

ALi Magik 1 M1647 chipset is a high performance and high value North Bridge. Host bus frequency can be either 100 or 133MHz double data rate. It supports 133MHz processor bus speeds and can support up to 3.0GB of SDRAM or DDR-SDRAM main memory. Supports any combination of 66/100/133MHz memory bus frequency. Besides, the M1647 can support up to 6 additional PCI masters.

Expansion Slots

Including six 32-bit/33MHz PCI, one AMR and one AGP 4X slots. The PCI local bus throughput can be up to 132MB/s. The Audio/Modem Riser (AMR) slot provided from AK76D can support AMR interface for a Modem/Audio card. The Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) specification provides a new level of video display sophistication and speed. The AGP video cards support data transfer rate up to 1066MB/s. As AK76D includes one AGP expansion slot for a bus mastering AGP graphic card, AD and SBA signaling, it can support 133MHz 2X/4X mode.

11

Memory

With ALi Magik 1 chipset, AK76D can support Double-Data-Rate (DDR) SDRAM. The DDR SDRAM interface allows zero wait state bursting between the SDRAM and the data buffers at 66/100/133MHz. The four banks of DDR SDRAM can be composed of an arbitrary mixture of 1M/2M4M/8M/16M/32M/64MxN SDRAM and maximum up to 2GB. In addition, AK76D still equips with two 168-pin SDRAM sockets that allow you to install PC100 or PC133 memory up to 2 GB as well. AK76D allows SDRAM to run at either synchronous or pseudo-synchronous mode with the host CPU bus frequency (66/100/133MHz).

Ultra DMA 33/66/100 Bus Mater IDE

On-board AC97 Sound

AK76D uses the AD 1885 AC97 CODEC chip. This on-board audio includes a complete audio recording and playback system.

Six USB Connectors

Provides two ports, six USB connectors for USB interface devices, such as mouse, keyboard, modem, scanner, etc. The onboard USB Host controller is fully compliant with USB UHCI 1.1 specification that can fully compatible with low power mode and wake-up specification.

12

Power Management/Plug and Play

AK76D supports the power management function that confirms to the power-saving standards of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star program. It also offers Plug-and-Play, which helps save users from configuration problems, thus making the system much more user-friendly.

Hardware Monitoring Management

Supports CPU or system fans status, temperature and voltage monitoring and alert, through the on-board hardware monitor module and Aopen Hardware Monitoring Utility.

Enhanced ACPI

Fully implement the ACPI standard for Windows® 95/98/ME/NT/2000 series compatibility, and supports Soft-Off, STR (Suspend to RAM, S3), STD (Suspend to Disk, S4), WOM (Wake On Modem), WOL (Wake On LAN) features.

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.

17

Clear CMOS Data

You can clear CMOS to restore system default setting. To clear the CMOS, follow the procedure below.

1.Turn off the system and unplug the AC power.

2.Remove ATX power cable from connector PWR2.

3.Locate JP14 and short pins 2-3 for a few seconds.

4.Return JP14 to its normal setting by shorting pins 1 & pin2.

5.Connect ATX power cable back to connector PWR2.

CPU Installation

This motherboard supports AMD® Athlon® and DuronSocket 462 series CPU. Be careful of CPU orientation when you plug it into CPU socket.

CPU socket Lever

1.Pull CPU socket lever and up to 90-degree angle.

2.Locate Pin 1 on the socket and look for a black dot or cut edge on the CPU upper left. Match Pin 1 and cut edge. Then insert CPU into the socket.

3.Press down CPU socket lever to finish CPU installation.

Note: If you do not match CPU socket Pin 1 and cut edge well, you may damage the CPU.

JP21 FSB/PCI Clock Ratio

This jumper is used to specify the relationship of PCI and FSB clock. Generally speaking, if you are not overclockers, we recommend you to set at the default setting. You can adjust CPU FSB frequency via BIOS setup program. Based on the CPU type, the adjustment range has two levels: 100~132 (FSB=100, such as Athlon® B), 133~166 (FSB=133, such as Athlon® C) MHz for your choosing.
