2.   The cooling fan is only fit on particular orientation on the motherboard. Put it to mount position of
     the motherboard.
3.   Turn the screw of the heatsink to fix the heatsink on the motherboard.
4.   Check the heatsink is in contact with the CPU properly.


2.5 Memory Module Installation
The motherboard supports 240 Pin DDR2 DIM module. Memory module can be installed to DIMM1
or DIMM2 socket on this motherboard. Dual channel mode can only work when two symmetrical DIM
modules is installed. These two DIM memory module should be in same specification for best result.


              Power off the system and unplug the power cord before installation of the
              memory module.


Installation Procedure
1.   Align the notch of the DIM module with the protruding part on the DIM socket. Spread the ejector
     latch to wide position.




2.   Insert the DIM module into the slot and press the module vertical until the ejector latch is clipped
     on the dim module.

2.7 ATX Power Supply Connector
This connector connects to an ATX power supply.
The plug from ATX power supply will only insert
in one orientation because of the different shape of
the connector. Find the proper orientation and push
down firmly making sure that the pins are aligned.
The system power can be turned off through
software control, like the shut down in Windows
VISTA/ XP / 2000 start menu. Power management
must be enabled in the system BIOS in order to
activate this soft-off feature. Once the system BIOS receives the power management command from
the OS, it will switch the system power off. You may use the 20-pin ATX power supply or 24-pin SSI
power supply as you like. If you’d like to use the ATX power supply, please plug your power supply
along with pin 1 & pin 13 (refer to the image at the right hand). There is also a foolproof design on pin
11, 12, 23 & 24 to avoid wrong installation.


2.8 Back Panel
