Chapter 2 Hardware Setup

If your motherboard has already been installed in your computer you may still need to refer to this chapter if you plan to upgrade your system's hardware.

This motherboard is electrostatic sensitive. Do not touch without wearing proper safety gadget and make sure to disconnect the power cable from the power source before performing any work on your motherboard. Not doing so may result in electrical shock!

2-1 Installing a CPU Processor for Socket 478

The Intel® Socket 478, designed for the Pentium 4 processor, has been incorporated as a standard motherboard specification. This motherboard will support Intel® Pentium 4 CPUs with its embedded Hyper-Threading technology. To insert your CPU into Socket 478 please follow the steps below:

1.Locate the 478-pin CPU socket on the motherboard.

2.Unlock the socket by pressing the lever sideways, and then open it up to a 90-degree angle.

3.Locate a Gold Mark on the top surface of the CPU, which is close to one of the CPU corners. The same corner will also be cut off, leaving a noticeable notch in the CPU's corner. These markings indicate Pin 1 on the CPU.

4.Gently insert the CPU with Gold Mark/Pin 1 at the same corner of Socket 478, which is located close to the end of the lever. Allow the weight of the CPU to push itself into place. Do not apply extra pressure as doing so may result in damaging your CPU.

5.When the CPU is correctly inserted, close the lever with your finger on to of the CPU to make sure the CPU is properly embedded into the socket.
6.Insert an appropriate heat sink and fan for proper Heat dispatch.

Installing a standard Intel® specified heat sink with cooling fan is necessary for proper heat dissipation from your CPU. Failing to install these items may result in overheating and possible burnout of your CPU.

In order to boot up with a newly installed CPU, AC Power must be switched off before installation.

2-2 Setting your CPU’s Parameters

Intel “Hyper-Threading Technology”

To enabling the functionality of Hyper-Threading Technology for your computer system you require ALL of the following platform components:

CPU: An Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor with HT Technology; Chipset: An Intel® Chipset that supports HT Technology; BIOS: A BIOS that supports HT Technology and has it enabled; OS: An operating system that supports HT Technology.

Frequency Configuration:

With the latest technology this motherboard enables the user to setup a main board’s CPU parameters through an easy-to-use BIOS setup procedure. It is no longer necessary to make many jumper settings as on conventional motherboard.

After installing all your hardware into your PC system, you can manually configure your CPU clock ratio and CPU clock according to your processor’s specifications. After turning on your system’s power, enable the CMOS Setup Utility by pressing [Delete] key when your BIOS identification screen appears. Then go to Frequency/ Voltage control option and select your CPU clock ratio and CPU clock speed (please refer to Chapter 3 for more details).

If you install a CPU on this motherboard, you must set the [External Clock Frequency] JP3 according to your processor types (See Section 2.4).

How to Derive your CPU Core Speed?

CPU Core Speed = CPU Clock Core/Bus Ratio

You do not need to change any voltage settings because this board will automatically set your CPU voltage.

Overclockability:

This motherboard is designed to support overclocking ability. However, please make sure your components are able to tolerate such abnormal setting, while CPU clock speed is overclocked. Any attempt to operate beyond product specifications is not recommended. We are not responsible for damages caused by inadequate operation or settings beyond product specifications.

Chapter 2

2-3 Main Memory Configuration

This motherboard provides 2 184pin Double Data Rate (DDR) Dual Inline Memory Modules (DIMM) slots, which supports PC 1600/PC2100/2700 DDR SDRAM modules up to 2GB. Install at least one DIMM module on the slots. Memory modules can be installed on the slots in any order. You can install either singleor double-sided modules to meet your own needs.

To install your DDR Modules please follow the following steps:

1.Unlock a DIMM socket by pressing the retaining clips outward. The DDR Modules has only one notch at the center of module. The DDR module will only fit in the right position.
2.Insert the DDR Module vertically into the DIMM slot, with the correct alignment. Then push it in until the golden finger on the memory module is deeply inserted into the socket.
3.The plastic clip on each side of the DIMM slot will automatically close to hold the DDR Modules in place.

2-4 Connector and Jumper Settings

Connectors are used to link the system board with other parts of the system, including power supply, keyboard, and the various controllers on the front panel of the system case.

The power supply connector is the last connection to be made while installing a motherboard. Before connecting the power supply, please make sure it is not connected to the power source.

All cables that provided by CHAINTECH come with a security-proof.

PW 1 / 2 (ATX Power Supply Connector):

The power cord leading from the system's power supply to the external power source must be the very last part connected when assembling a system. The ATX power supply provides a single 20-pin connector interface, which incorporates standard +/-5V, +/-12V, optional 3.3V and Soft-power signals. The Soft power signal, a 5V trickle supply is continuously supplied when AC power is available. When the system is in the Soft-Off mode, this trickle supply maintains the system in its minimum power state.

The ATX 12V power supply has a new +12V (4-pin) and +5V / 3.3V (6-pin) auxiliary power connector to enable the delivery of more +12 VDC and + 5/ 3.3V VDC current to the motherboard.

Power-On By Modem:

While in Soft-Off state, if an external modem ring-up signal occurs, the system will be activated and therefore can be remotely accessed. You may enable this function in BIOS's Power Management Setup menu. (See section 3. 5)

Chapter 2

Blinking LED in Suspend Mode:

While in Suspend mode, the LED light on the front panel of your computer will flash. Suspend mode is entered by pressing the Green Override Power Button on your ATX case, or by enabling the Power Management and Suspend Mode options in BIOS's Power Management menu. (See section 3.5)

Poly-fuse Over Current Protection:

The poly-fuse protects the system from dangerous voltages that the system might be exposed to via keyboards or USB connectors. In case of such an exposure, the poly-fuse will immediately be disconnected from the circuit just like a normal fuse. After being disconnected for a certain period of time, the poly-fuse will return to its normal state. Then the keyboard or USB connector can function properly again. Unlike conventional fuses, the poly-fuse does not have to be replaced, relieving the user from such inconveniences.

CN1A (Front Panel Connector):

1. PWR-SW (Over-ride Power Button Connector):

The power button on the ATX chassis can be used as a normal power switch as well as a device to activate Advanced Power Management Suspend mode. This is a power-saving mode when the computer is idle for long periods of time. The Soft-OFF by PWR-BTTN function in BIOS's Power Management Setup menu must be set to [Delay 4 Sec.] to activate this function.

When the Soft-OFF by PWR-BTTN function is enabled, pressing the power button rapidly will switch the system to Suspend mode. Any occurrence of external activities such as pressing a key on the keyboard or moving the mouse will bring the system back to Full-On. Pushing the button while in Full-On mode for more than [4 seconds] will switch the system completely off. See Over-ride Power
