Installing a 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.
Press the retaining clips
outward to unlock a DIMM
Align a DIMM on the socket
such that the notch on the
DIMM matches the DIMM
slot key on the socket.
A DIMM is keyed with a notch so that it fits in only one direction. DO NOT force a DIMM into
a socket in the wrong direction to avoid damaging the DIMM.
Firmly insert the DIMM into the
socket until the retaining clips snap
back in place and the DIMM is
Removing a DIMM
To remove a DIMM:
Simultaneously press the retaining clips outward to unlock the DIMM.
The default memory operation frequency is dependent on its Serial Presence Detect
(SPD), which is the standard way of accessing information from a memory module.
Under the default state, some memory modules for overclocking may operate at a
lower frequency than the vendor-marked value. To operate at the vendor-marked
or at a higher frequency, refer to section 2.5 Ai Tweaker menu for manual memory
For system stability, use a more efficient memory cooling system to support a full
memory load (2 DIMMs) or overclocking condition.
