Product warranty or service will not be extended if: 1 the product is repaired, modified or altered, unless such repair, modification of alteration is authorized in writing by ASUS; or 2 the serial number of the product is defaced or missing. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. The use of shielded cables for connection of the monitor to the graphics card is required to assure compliance with FCC regulations. Canadian Department of Communications Statement This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class B limits for radio noise emissions from digital apparatus set out in the Radio Interference Regulations of the Canadian Department of Communications.
If possible, disconnect all power cables from the existing system before you add a device. These devices could interrupt the grounding circuit. If you are not sure about the voltage of the electrical outlet you are using, contact your local power company.
Contact a qualified service technician or your retailer. If you detect any damage, contact your dealer immediately. Do not place the product in any area where it may become wet.
This chapter also lists the hardware setup procedures that you have to perform when installing system components. It includes description of the jumpers and connectors on the motherboard. Detailed descriptions of the BIOS parameters are also provided. Where to find more information Refer to the following sources for additional information and for product and software updates.
Refer to the ASUS contact information. Optional documentation Your product package may include optional documentation, such as warranty flyers, that may have been added by your dealer.
These documents are not part of the standard package. N O T E : Tips and additional information to help you complete a task. The motherboard delivers a host of new features and latest technologies, making it another standout in the long line of ASUS quality motherboards! Before you start installing the motherboard, and hardware devices on it, check the items in your package with the list below.
See page for details. The ultra-fast MHz memory bus delivers the required bandwidth for the latest 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. PCI Express features point-to-point serial interconnections between devices and allows higher clockspeeds by carrying data in packets. This high speed interface is software compatible with existing PCI specifications. See page and for details. USB 2. The system fan rotations per minute RPM is monitored for timely failure detection.
The ASIC monitors the voltage levels to ensure stable supply of current for critical components. See page See pages and This protection eliminates the need to buy a replacement ROM chip. See details on page The localized BIOS menus allow you to configure easier and faster.
This is a reminder that you should shut down the system and unplug the power cable before removing or plugging in any motherboard component. The illustration below shows the location of the onboard LED. Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing the motherboard. Failure to do so can cause you physical injury and damage motherboard components.
The edge with external ports goes to the rear part of the chassis as indicated in the image below. Do not overtighten the screws! Doing so can damage the motherboard. If the instructions in this section do not match the CPU documentation, follow the latter. Locate the CPU socket on the motherboard. Press the load lever with your thumb A and move it to the left B until it is released from the retention tab. A Load plate 5. Position the CPU over the socket, making sure that the gold triangle is on the bottom-left corner of the socket.
The socket alignment key should fit Alignment key into the CPU notch. Close the load plate A , then A push the load lever B until it snaps into the retention tab. B The CPU fits in only one correct orientation. Under Linux, use the Hyper-Threading compiler to compile the code. If you are using any other operating systems, disable the Hyper-Threading Technology item in the BIOS to ensure system stability and performance.
To use the Hyper-Threading Technology on this motherboard: 1. Reboot the computer. Follow these steps to install the CPU heatsink and fan. Place the heatsink on top of the installed CPU, making sure that the four pins match the holes on the motherboard. Push each of the pins downward to secure the heatsink and fan assembly in place.
Hardware monitoring errors can occur if you fail to plug this connector. Use any of the recommended configurations in Table 1. For optimum compatibility, it is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor. B - supports on pair of modules inserted into either the blue slots or the black slots as one pair of Dual-channel memory configuration.
C - support for 4 modules inserted into the blue and black slots as two pairs of Dual-channel memory configuration. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to both the motherboard and the components. Locked Retaining Clip 1. Simultaneously press the 1 retaining clips outward to unlock the DIMM. The DIMM might get damaged when it flips out with extra force. Remove the DIMM from the socket. The following sub-sections describe the slots and the expansion cards that they support.
Make sure to unplug the power cord before adding or removing expansion cards. Failure to do so may cause you physical injury and damage motherboard components. Before installing the expansion card, read the documentation that came with it and make the necessary hardware settings for the card.
Remove the system unit cover if your motherboard is already installed in a chassis. Remove the bracket opposite the slot that you intend to use. Keep the screw for later use. Align the card connector with the slot and press firmly until the card is completely seated on the slot.
Secure the card to the chassis with the screw you removed earlier. Replace the system cover. Turn on the system and change the necessary BIOS settings, if any.
Assign an IRQ to the card. Refer to the tables on the next page. Install the software drivers for the expansion card. Otherwise, conflicts will arise between the two PCI groups, making the system unstable and the card inoperable.
The figure shows a graphics card installed on the PCI Express x16 slot. The figure shows a network card installed on the PCI Express x1 slot. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord. Remove the onboard battery. Move the jumper cap from pins default to pins Re-install the battery. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
Removing the cap will cause system boot failure! For system failure due to overclocking, use the C. CPU Parameter Recall feature.
