WARNING!

Computer motherboards and expansion cards contain very delicate Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To protect them against damage from static electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you work on your computer.

1.Unplug your computer when working on the inside.

2.Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal object, such as the power supply case.

3.Hold components by the edges and try not touch the IC chips, leads or connectors, or othercomponents.

4.Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the components whenever the components are separated from the system.

5.Ensure that the ATX power supply is switched off before you plug in or remove the ATX power connector on the motherboard.

4

WARNING!

Installing the motherboard to the chassis…

If the motherboard has mounting holes, but they don’t line up with the holes on the base and there are no slots to attach the spacers, do not become alarmed you can still attach the spacers to the mounting holes. Just cut the bottom portion of the spacers (the spacer may be a little hard to cut off, so be careful of your hands). In this way you can still attach the motherboard to the base without worrying about short circuits. Sometimes you may need to use the plastic springs to isolate the screw from the motherboard PCB surface, because the circuit wire may be near by the hole. Be careful, don’t let the screw contact any printed circuit write or parts on the PCB that are near the fixing hole, otherwise it may damage the board or cause board malfunctioning.

0 Please set the CPU host frequency in accordance with your processor’s specifications. We don’t recommend you to set the system bus frequency over the CPU’s specification because these specific bus frequencies are not the standard specifications for CPU, chipset and most of the peripherals. Whether your system can run under these specific bus frequencies properly will depend on your hardware configurations, including CPU, Chipsets,SDRAM,Cards….etc.

Hardware Installation Process

Step 2: Install memory modules

The motherboard has 6 dual inline memory module (DIMM) sockets, but it can only support a maximum of 3 banks DDR memory. DDR socket 1 uses 1 bank, DDR socket 2& 3 share the remaining 2 banks. The BIOS will automatically detects memory type and size. To install the memory module, just push it vertically into the DIMM Slot .The DIMM module can only fit in one direction due to the notch.Memory size can vary between sockets.

Registered DDR

Notch

J1 (A-1)

J5 (B-2)

J2 (A-2)

J6 (B-3)

J3 (A-3)

J1 (A-1)

J5 (B-2)

J2 (A-2)

J6 (B-3) J3 (A-3)

Installation Step:

1.The DIMM slot has a notch, so the DIMM memory module can only fit in one direction.

2.Insert the DIMM memory module vertically into the DIMM slot. Then push it down.

3.Close the plastic clip at both edges of theDIMM slots to lock the DIMM module.

4.When installing the memoryin the DIMM module, please insert them pair by pair. You must follow the slot number order to insert the DIMM into DIMM module.

The installation number sequence are J3J6 -- J2J5 -- J1J4. If you only insert one pair, you must insert it in J3/J6 slot.

5.If you want to install X4, X8 device width DDR DIMMs simultaneously, please populated x4 device width DIMMs at the farthest DIMMs away from MCH.

6.It is not not recommended to use DDR X4, X8 type of mixture installation.

7.DIMMs must be populated in pairs, and the DIMMs in a pair must be identical.

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

Hardware Installation Process

Step 3: Install expansion cards

1.Read the related expansion card’s instruction document before install the expansion card into the computer.

2.Remove your computer’s chassis cover, screws and slot bracket from the computer.

3.Press the expansion card firmly into expansion slot in motherboard.

4.Be sure the metal contacts on the card are indeed seated in the slot.

5.Replace the screw to secure the slot bracket of the expansion card.

6.Replace your computer’s chassis cover.

7.Power on the computer, if necessary, setup BIOS utility of expansion card from BIOS.

8.Install related driver from the operating system.
