Central Processing Unit (CPU) 2.1. Overview The motherboard comes with a surface mount LGA775 socket designed for the Intel Mainstream/Value FMB processor in the 775-land package. ® Installing the CPU To install a CPU: Locate the CPU socket on the motherboard. IPIBL-LA(Berkeley-GL8E) CPU Socket 775 Before installing the CPU, make sure that the socket box is facing towards you and the load lever is on your left. Press the load lever with your thumb (A), then move it to the left (B) until it is released from the retention tab. Retention tab PnP cap Load lever This side of the socket box should face you.
Lift the load lever in the direction of the arrow to a 135º angle. Lift the load plate with your thumb and forefinger to a 100º angle (A), then push the PnP cap from the load plate window to remove (B). Load plate Alignment key Position the CPU over the socket, making sure that the gold triangle is on the bottom-left corner of the socket then fit the socket alignment key into the CPU notch CPU notch.
Close the load plate (A), then push the load lever (B) until it snaps into the retention tab. If installing a dual-core CPU, connect the chassis fan cable to the CHA_FAN1 connector to ensure system stability. Notes on Intel Hyper-Threading Technology ® • This motherboard supports Intel Mainstream/Value FMB processor in the ® 775-land package with Hyper-Threading Technology. • Hyper-Threading Technology is supported under Windows XP/2003 Server/ ® Vista and Linux 2.4.x (kernel) and later versions only. Under Linux, use the Hyper-Threading compiler to compile the code. If you are using any other operating systems, disable the Hyper-Threading Techonology item in the BIOS to ensure system stability and performance.
System memory The motherboard comes with four Double Data Rate 2 (DDR2) Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets. A DDR2 module has the same physical dimensions as a DDR DIMM but has a 240-pin footprint compared to the 184-pin DDR DIMM. DDR2 DIMMs are notched differently to prevent installation on a DDR DIMM socket. The following figure illustrates the location of the DDR2 DIMM sockets. IPIBL-LA(Berkeley-GL8E) 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets Memory configurations You can install 512 MB, 1 GB, and 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section. • Installing DDR2 DIMMs other than the recommended configurations may cause memory sizing error or system boot failure. Use any of the recommended configurations on the next page. Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR2 DIMM pairs using the • recommended configurations. • Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB (Front Side Bus). Refer to the Memory frequency/CPU FSB synchronization table on the next page. •...
Installing a DDR2.DIMM Unplug the power supply before adding or removing DIMMs or other system components. Failure to do so can cause severe damage to both the motherboard and the components. To install a DIMM: DDR2 DIMM notch Unlock a DIMM socket by pressing the retaining clips outward. Align a DIMM on the socket such that the notch on the DIMM matches the break on the socket. Firmly insert the DIMM into the socket until the retaining clips snap back in place and the DIMM is properly seated.
Expansion slots In the future, you may need to install expansion cards. 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. Installing an expansion card To install an expansion card: 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. Configuring an expansion card After installing the expansion card, configure it by adjusting the software settings.

PCI Express x16 slot This motherboard supports PCI Express x16 graphic cards that comply with PCI Express specifications. The figure shows a graphics card installed on the PCI Express x16 slot. PCI Express x1 slot This motherboard supports PCI Express x1 network cards, SCSI cards and other cards that comply with the PCI Express specifications. The figure shows a network card installed on the PCI Express x1 slot.
Jumpers Clear RTC RAM (3-pin CLEAR CMOS) This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords. To erase the RTC RAM: 1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord. 2. Move the jumper cap from pins 2-3 (Normal) to pins 1-2 (Clear CMOS) Keep the cap on pins 1-2 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 2-3. 3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer. 4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data. Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap from the default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure! CLEAR CMOS Clear CMOS Normal (Default) IPIBL-LA(Berkeley-GL8E) Clear RTC RAM Clear password (3-pin CLEAR PWD) This jumper allows you to clear the password if you forgot your password.
