1-3 Installation of the CPU and Heatsink

Before installing the CPU, please comply with the following conditions:

1.Please make sure that the motherboard supports the CPU.

2.Please take note of the one indented corner of the CPU. If you install the CPU in the wrong direction, the CPU will not insert properly. If this occurs, please change the insert direction of the CPU.

3.Please add an even layer of heat sink paste between the CPU and heatsink.

4.Please make sure the heatsink is installed on the CPU prior to system use, otherwise overheating and permanent damage of the CPU may occur.

5.Please set the CPU host frequency in accordance with the processor specifications. It is not recommended that the system bus frequency be set beyond hardware specifications since it does not meet the required standards for the peripherals. If you wish to set the frequency beyond the proper specifications, please do so according to your hardware specifications including the CPU, graphics card, memory, hard drive, etc.

HT functionality requirement content :

Enabling the functionality of Hyper-Threading Technology for your computer system requires 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 operation system that has optimizations for HT Technology

1-3-1 Installation of the CPU

Fig. 1

Socket lever Position lever at a 90 degree angle.

Fig. 2

A gold-colored triangle is marked one edge of the CPU. Please align this edge with the socket edge closest to the CPU lever. Gently place the CPU into position making sure that the CPU pins fit perfectly into their holes.

Once the CPU is positioned into it socket, place one finger down on the middle of the CPU and gently press the metal lever back into its original position.

Please use extra care when installing the CPU. The CPU will not fit if positioned incorrectly. Rather than applying force, please change the positioning of the CPU.

1-3-2 Installation of the Heatsink

Fig.1

Before installing the heat sink, please first add an even layer of heat sink paste on the surface of the CPU. Install all the heat sink components (Please refer to the heat sink manual for detailed installation instructions).

Fig.2

Please connect the heat sink power connector to the CPU_FAN connector located on the motherboard so that the heat sink can properly function to prevent CPU overheating.

The heat sink may adhere to the CPU as a result of hardening of the heat sink paste. To prevent such an occurrence, it is suggested that either thermal tape rather than heat sink paste be used for heat dissipation or using extreme care when removing the heat sink.

1-4 Installation of Memory

Before installing the memory modules, please comply with the following conditions:

1.Please make sure that the memory used is supported by the motherboard. It is recommended that memory of similar capacity, specifications and brand be used.

2.Before installing or removing memory modules, please make sure that the computer power is switched off to prevent hardware damage.

3.Memory modules have a foolproof insertion design. A memory module can be installed in only one direction. If you are unable to insert the module, please switch the direction.

The motherboard supports DDR memory modules, whereby BIOS will automatically detect memory capacity and specifications. Memory modules are designed so that they can be inserted only in one direction. The memory capacity used can differ with each slot.

Notch

DDR

Fig.1

The DIMM socket has a notch, so the DIMM memory module can only fit in one direction. Insert the DIMM memory module vertically into the DIMM socket. Then push it down.

Fig.2

Close the plastic clip at both edges of the DIMM sockets to lock the DIMM module.

Reverse the installation steps when you wish to remove the DIMM module.

Dual Channel Memory Configuration

The GA-8I865GME supports the Dual Channel Technology. When the Dual Channel Technology is activated, the bandwidth of memory bus will be double the original one.

The GA-8I865GME includes 2 DIMM sockets, and each Channel has one DIMM socket as following:

Channel A : DDR 1

Channel B : DDR 2

If you want to operate the Dual Channel Technology, please note the following explanations due to the limitation of Intel chipset specifications.

1.Dual channel memory cannot be used if one DDR memory modules are installed.

2.To enable Dual Channel mode with 2 memory modules, it is recommended to use memory modules of identical brand, size, chips, and speed.

The following is a Dual Channel Memory configuration table: (DS: Double Side, SS: Single Side)

1/2) ATX_12V/ATX (Power Connector)

With the use of the power connector, the power supply can supply enough stable power to all the components on the motherboard. Before connecting the power connector, please make sure that all components and devices are properly installed. Align the power connector with its proper location on the motherboard and connect tightly.

The ATX_12V power connector mainly supplies power to the CPU. If the ATX_12V power connector is not connected, the system will not start.

Caution!

Please use a power supply that is able to handle the system voltage requirements. It is recommended that a power supply that can withstand high power consumption be used (300W or greater). If a power supply is used that does not provide the required power, the result can lead to an unstable system or a system that is unable to start.

3/4/5) CPU_FAN / SYS_FAN / PWR_FAN* (Cooler Fan Power Connector)

The cooler fan power connector supplies a +12V power voltage via a 3-pin power connector and possesses a foolproof connection design.

Most coolers are designed with color-coded power connector wires. A red power connector wire indicates a positive connection and requires a +12V power voltage. The black connector wire is the ground wire (GND).

Please remember to connect the power to the cooler to prevent system overheating and failure. Caution!

Please remember to connect the power to the CPU fan to prevent CPU overheating and failure.
