INSTALLATIONS

ATX Power Installation

The system power is provided to the motherboard with the ATX1 and ATX_12V power connectors. ATX1 is a 24-pin power connector and ATX_12V is a 8-pin 12V power connector.

The 24-pin power connector can to be connected to a standard 20-pin ATX power connector in a standard ATX power supply (Min. 400watt).

Note: The power supply 5VSB voltage must be at least 2A.

Installing the Memory

The MB935 motherboard supports four DDR2 memory sockets for a maximum total memory of 8GB in DDR memory type. It supports DDR2 667/800.

Basically, the system memory interface has the following features: Supports two 64-bit wide DDR data channels

Available bandwidth up to 6.4GB/s (DDR2 800) for single-channel mode and 12.8GB/s (DDR2 800) in dual-channel mode.

Supports 256Mb, 512Mb, 1Gb DDR2 technologies. Supports only x8, x16, DDR2 devices with four banks Supports only unbuffered DIMMs

Supports opportunistic refresh

Up to 32 simultaneously open pages (four per row, four rows maximum)

Dual Channel Memory Configuration

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 mode will not be enabled if only one DDR II memory module is installed.

2.To enable Dual Channel mode with two or four memory modules (it is recommended to use memory modules of identical brand, size, chips, and speed), you must install them into DIMM sockets of the same color. The following is a Dual Channel Memory configuration table:

BIOS SETUP

BIOS Introduction

The Award BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) installed in your computer system’s ROM supports Intel processors. The BIOS provides critical low-level support for a standard device such as disk drives, serial ports and parallel ports. It also adds virus and password protection as well as special support for detailed fine-tuning of the chipset controlling the entire system.

BIOS Setup

The Award BIOS provides a Setup utility program for specifying the system configurations and settings. The BIOS ROM of the system stores the Setup utility. When you turn on the computer, the Award BIOS is immediately activated. Pressing the <Del> key immediately allows you to enter the Setup utility. If you are a little bit late pressing the <Del> key, POST (Power on Self Test) will continue with its test routines, thus preventing you from invoking the Setup. If you still wish to enter Setup, restart the system by pressing the ”Reset” button or simultaneously pressing the <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete> keys. You can also restart by turning the system off and back on again. The following message will appear on the screen:

Press <DEL> to Enter Setup

In general, you press the arrow keys to highlight items, <Enter> to select, the <PgUp> and <PgDn> keys to change entries, <F1> for help and <Esc> to quit.

When you enter the Setup utility, the Main Menu screen will appear on the screen. The Main Menu allows you to select from various setup functions and exit choices.

The section below the setup items of the Main Menu displays the control keys for this menu. At the bottom of the Main Menu just below the control keys section, there is another section, which displays information on the currently highlighted item in the list.

Note: If the system cannot boot after making and saving system changes with Setup, the Award BIOS supports an override to the CMOS settings that resets your system to its default.

Warning: It is strongly recommended that you avoid making any changes to the chipset defaults. These defaults have been carefully chosen by both Award and your system manufacturer to provide the absolute maximum performance and reliability. Changing the defaults could cause the system to become unstable and crash in some cases.

BIOS SETUP

Standard CMOS Setup

“Standard CMOS Setup” choice allows you to record some basic hardware configurations in your computer system and set the system clock and error handling. If the motherboard is already installed in a working system, you will not need to select this option. You will need to run the Standard CMOS option, however, if you change your system hardware configurations, the onboard battery fails, or the configuration stored in the CMOS memory was lost or damaged.

CPU L3 Cache

Cache memory is additional memory that is much faster than conventional DRAM (system memory). CPUs from 486-type on up contain internal cache memory, and most, but not all, modern PCs have additional (external) cache memory. When the CPU requests data, the system transfers the requested data from the main DRAM into cache memory, for even faster access by the CPU. By default, these items are enabled.

Quick Power On Self Test

When enabled, this field speeds up the Power On Self Test (POST) after the system is turned on. If it is set to Enabled, BIOS will skip some items.

IDE HDD Block Mode

This field allows your hard disk controller to use the fast block mode to transfer data to and from your hard disk drive.

OnChip Primary/Secondary PCI IDE

The integrated peripheral controller contains an IDE interface with support for two IDE channels. Select Enabled to activate each channel separately.

IDE Primary/Secondary Master/Slave PIO

These fields allow your system hard disk controller to work faster. Rather than have the BIOS issue a series of commands that transfer to or from the disk drive, PIO (Programmed Input/Output) allows the BIOS to communicate with the controller and CPU directly.

The system supports five modes, numbered from 0 (default) to 4, which primarily differ in timing. When Auto is selected, the BIOS will select the best available mode.

IDE Primary/Secondary Master/Slave UDMA

These fields allow your system to improve disk I/O throughput to 33Mb/sec with the Ultra DMA/33 feature. The options are Auto and

MB935 User’s Manual

BIOS SETUP

Resume by Alarm

This field enables or disables the resumption of the system operation. When enabled, the user is allowed to set the Date and Time.

Reload Global Timer Events

The HDD, FDD, COM, LPT Ports, and PCI PIRQ are I/O events that can prevent the system from entering a power saving mode or can awaken the system from such a mode. When an I/O device wants to gain the attention of the operating system, it signals this by causing an IRQ to occur. When the operating system is ready to respond to the request, it interrupts itself and performs the service.

Notes:

HPET (High Precision Event Timer) is meant to supplement and replace the 8254 Programmable Interval Timer (PIT) and the Real-time clock's (RTC) periodic interrupt function. Compared to these older timer circuits, the HPET has higher frequency (at least 10 MHz) and wider 64-bit counters (although they can be driven in 32-bit mode).

C. Watchdog Timer Configuration

The WDT is used to generate a variety of output signals after a user programmable count. The WDT is suitable for use in the prevention of system lock-up, such as when software becomes trapped in a deadlock. Under these sort of circumstances, the timer will count to zero and the selected outputs will be driven. Under normal circumstance, the user will restart the WDT at regular intervals before the timer counts to zero.
