INTRODUCTION

Introduction

Product Description

Designed for gaming and multimedia applications, the MB879 Mini ITX board incorporates the ATi Xpress 200 chipset, supporting CPU front side bus of 400MHzz and 533MHz. The board accommodates Pentium® M and Celeron® M processors with speeds up to 2.26GHz and one DDR2 DIMM memory.

The MB879 comes with the RC410MD Integrated Graphics Processor (IGP) that integrates 2D/3D graphics and a system controller in a single chip. The RC410MB delivers the best performance of all integrated graphics and core logic products in the market. It incorporates an ATI Radeon X300-based graphics core, which is coupled with 64-bit DDR/DDR2 SDRAM system memory interface for optimal performance.

The main features of the board are:

Supports Pentium® M / Celeron® M processors

Supports up to 2.26GHz, 400MHz/533MHz FSB

One DDR2 SDRAM DIMM, Max. 1GB memory

Onboard 10/100 BaseT and Gigabit LAN (MB879F)

ATi Mobility Radeon 9600 VGA for CRT / TV out / LVDS

2x SATA, 6x USB 2.0, 4x COM, Watchdog timer, 1394

1x PCI, 1x MiniPCI, 1xPCI-E(x1) slots

Dimensions of the board are 170mm x 170mm.

INSTALLATIONS

Installing the CPU

The MB879 board supports a Socket 479 processor socket for Intel® Pentium® M or Celeron® M processors.

The processor socket comes with a screw to secure the processor. As shown in the left picture below, loosen the screw first before inserting the processor. Place the processor into the socket by making sure the notch on the corner of the CPU corresponds with the notch on the inside of the socket. Once the processor has slide into the socket, fasten the screw. Refer to the figures below.

NOTE: Ensure that the CPU heat sink and the CPU top surface are in total contact to avoid CPU overheating problem that would cause your system to hang or be unstable.

INSTALLATIONS

Installing the Memory

The MB879 board supports one DDR2 memory socket for a maximum total memory of 1GB in DDR2 memory type.

Installing and Removing Memory Modules

To install the DDR2 modules, locate the memory slot on the board and perform the following steps:

1.Hold the DDR2 module so that the key of the DDR2 module align with those on the memory slot.

2.Gently push the DDR2 module in an upright position until the clips of the slot close to hold the DDR2 module in place when the DDR2 module touches the bottom of the slot.

3.To remove the DDR2 module, press the clips with both hands.
