This motherboard is a high perfor- mance, enhanced function motherboard that supports Socket AMD K8 processors for high-end business or personal desktop markets. Feature Processor This motherboard uses a pin socket that carries the following features: Do not over-tighten the screws as this can stress ngorce3-a motherboard. Checking Jumper Settings This section explains how to set jumpers for correct configuration of the motherboard. Setting Jumpers Use the motherboard jumpers to set system configuration options.
Jumpers with more than one pin are numbered. Checking Jumper Settings The following illustration shows the location of the motherboard jumpers.
Pin 1 is labeled. Connecting Case Components After you have installed the motherboard into a case, you can begin con- necting the motherboard components. Refer to the following: Refer to the table below for information: Installing Hardware Installing the Processor Caution: When installing a CPU heatsink and cooling fan make sure that you DO NOT scratch the motherboard or any of the nforce3a resistors with the clip of the cooling fan.
If the clip of the cooling fan scrapes across the motherboard, you may cause serious damage to the motherboard or its components. Pull up the lever away from the socket and lift up to degree angle. Locate the CPU cut edge the corner with the pin hold noticeably missing. Align and insert the CPU correctly. Installation Procedure Refer to the following to install the memory modules.
Push the latches on each side of the DIMM slot down. Align the memory module with the slot. These nflrce3-a are well designed and will only fit in one orientation. Installing a Floppy Diskette Drive The motherboard has a floppy diskette drive FDD1 interface and ships with a diskette drive ribbon cable that nforfe3-a one or two floppy diskette drives. You can nforrce3-a a 5.
The floppy diskette drive cable has one type of connector for a 5. It is AGP 3. This motherboard is equipped with five standard PCI slots. Front Panel Audio header This header allows the user to install auxiliary front-oriented microphone and line-out ports for easier access. Infrared port The mainboard supports an Infrared IR1 data port.
Infrared ports allow the wireless exchange nfodce3-a information between your computer and similarly equipped devices such as rcs, laptops, Personal Digital Assistants PDAsand other computers.
New BIOS provides support for new peripherals, improvements in performance, or fixes rcs known bugs. Install new BIOS as follows: If you are setting up a new hard disk drive that supports LBA mode, more than one line will appear in the parameter box.
Gate A20 Option Fast Ecd item defines how the system handles legacy software that was written for an earlier generation of processors. CPU Internal Cache Enabled All processors that can be installed in this mainboard use internal level 1 L1 cache memory to improve performance.
Leave this item at the default value for better perfor- mance.

External Cache Enabled Most processors that can be installed in this system use external level 2 L2 cache memory to improve performance. Advanced Chipset Features These items define critical timing parameters of the motherboard. You should leave the items on this page at their default values unless you are very familiar with the technical specifications of your system hardware.
If you change the values incorrectly, you may introduce fatal errors or recurring instability into your system. Power Management Setup This option lets you control system power management. The system has various power- saving modes including powering down the hard disk, turning off the video, suspending to RAM, and software power down that allows the system to be automatically resumed by certain events.
Power-On by Alarm Disabled This item allows users to enable or disable the alarm to wake up the system. In the Memory Resources submenu, use the first item Reserved Memory Base to set the start address of the memory you want to reserve for the ISA expansion card. Voltage Control On motherboards that support hardware monitoring, this item lets you monitor the parameters for critical voltages.
Load Optimized Defaults This option opens a dialog box that lets you install optimized defaults for all appropriate items in the Setup Utility. The optimized defaults place de- mands on the system that may be greater than the performance level of the components, such as the CPU and the memory.
Below you can find a brief description of each software program, and the location for your motherboard version.
