2. Hardware Setup
In this chapter we will elaborate all the information you need upon installing this motherboard to your computer system. Always power off the computer and unplug the AC power cord before adding or removing any peripheral or component. Failing to so may cause severe damage to your motherboard and/or peripherals. Plug in the AC power cord only after you have carefully checked everything.
Unless stated additionally, the motherboard layout in this chapter relies mainly on KN9 SLI.
2.1 Choosing a Computer Chassis
This motherboard carries an ATX form factor of 305 x 245 mm. Choose a chassis big enough to install this motherboard. As some features for this motherboard are implemented by cabling connectors on the motherboard to indicators and switches or buttons on the chassis, make sure your chassis supports all the features required. If there is possibility of adopting some more hard drives, make sure your chassis has sufficient power and space for them. Most chassis have alternatives for I/O shield located at the rear panel. Make sure the I/O shield of the chassis matches the I/O port configuration of this motherboard. You can find an I/O shield specifically designed for this motherboard in its package.
2.2 Installing Motherboard
Most computer chassis have a base with many mounting holes to allow the motherboard to be securely attached, and at the same time, prevent the system from short circuits. There are two ways to attach the motherboard to the chassis base: 1. use studs, or 2. use spacers In principle, the best way to attach the board is to use studs. Only if you are unable to do this should you attach the board with spacers. Line up the holes on the board with the mounting holes on the chassis. If the holes line up and there are screw holes, you can attach the board with studs. If the holes line up and there are only slots, you can only attach with spacers. Take the tip of the spacers and insert them into the slots. After doing this to all the slots, you can slide the board into position aligned with slots. After the board has been positioned, check to make sure everything is OK before putting the chassis back on.
To install this motherboard: 1. Locate all the screw holes on the motherboard and the chassis base. 2. Place all the studs or spacers needed on the chassis base and have them tightened. 3. Face the motherboards I/O ports toward the chassiss rear panel. 4. Line up all the motherboards screw holes with those studs or spacers on the chassis. 5. Install the motherboard with screws and have them tightened.
To prevent shorting the PCB circuit, please REMOVE the metal studs or spacers if they are already fastened on the chassis base and are without mounting-holes on the motherboard to align with.
2.3 Checking Jumper Settings
For a 2-pin jumper, plug the jumper cap on both pins will make it CLOSE (SHORT). Remove the jumper cap, or plug it on either pin (reserved for future use) will leave it at OPEN position.
Face the chassiss rear panel. OPEN
For 3-pin jumper, pin 1~2 or pin 2~3 can be shorted by plugging the jumper cap in.
Pin 1~2 SHORT
Pin 2~3 SHORT
2.3.1 CMOS Memory Clearing Header and Backup Battery
The time to clear the CMOS memory occurs when (a) the CMOS data becomes corrupted, (b) you forgot the supervisor or user password preset in the BIOS menu, (c) you are unable to boot-up the system because the CPU ratio/clock was incorrectly set in the BIOS menu. This header uses a jumper cap to clear the CMOS memory and have it reconfigured to the default values stored in BIOS. Pins 1 and 2 shorted (default): Normal operation. Pins 2 and 3 shorted: Clear CMOS memory.
To clear the CMOS memory and load in the default values: 1. Power off the system and disconnect with AC power source. 2. Set pin 2 and pin 3 shorted by the jumper cap. Wait for a few seconds. Set the jumper cap back to its default settings --- pin 1 and pin 2 shorted. 3. Power on the system. 4. For incorrect CPU ratio/clock settings in the BIOS, press <Del> key to enter the BIOS setup menu right after powering on system. 5. Set the CPU operating speed back to its default or an appropriate value. 6. Save and exit the BIOS setup menu.
CMOS Backup Battery: An onboard battery saves the CMOS memory to keep the BIOS information stays on even after disconnected your system with power source. Nevertheless, this backup battery exhausts after some five years. Once the error message like CMOS BATTERY HAS FAILED or CMOS checksum error displays on monitor, this backup battery is no longer functional and has to be renewed.
To renew the backup battery: 1. Power off the system and disconnect with AC power source. 2. Remove the exhausted battery. 3. Insert a new CR2032 or equivalent battery. Pay attention to its polarity. The + side is its positive polarity. 4. Connect AC power source and power on the system. 5. Enter the BIOS setup menu. Reconfigure the setup parameters if necessary.
CAUTION: Danger of explosion may arise if the battery is incorrectly renewed. Renew only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the battery manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the battery manufacturers instructions.
2.3.2 Wake-up Headers
These headers use a jumper cap to enable/disable the wake-up function.
PS2-PWR1: Pin 1-2 shorted (Default): Disable wake-up function support at Keyboard/Mouse port. Pin 2-3 shorted: Enable wake-up function support at Keyboard/Mouse port. USB-PWR1: Pin 1-2 shorted: Disable wake-up function support at USB1 port. Pin 2-3 shorted (Default): Enable wake-up function support at USB1 port. USB-PWR2: Pin 1-2 shorted: Disable wake-up function support at USB2 port. Pin 2-3 shorted (Default): Enable wake-up function support at USB2 port. FP-PWR1: Pin 1-2 shorted: Disable wake-up function support at FP-USB1 port. Pin 2-3 shorted (Default): Enable wake-up function support at FP-USB1 port. FP-PWR2: Pin 1-2 shorted: Disable wake-up function support at FP-USB2 port. Pin 2-3 shorted (Default): Enable wake-up function support at FP-USB2 port. FP-PWR3: Pin 1-2 shorted: Disable wake-up function support at FP-USB3 port. Pin 2-3 shorted (Default): Enable wake-up function support at FP-USB3 port.
These fan connectors are not jumpers. DO NOT place jumper caps on these connectors.
2.5 Installing Hardware
DO NOT scratch the motherboard when installing hardware. An accidentally scratch of a tiny surface-mount component may seriously damage the motherboard.
2.5.1 CPU Socket AM2
DO NOT touch or bend the delicate pins on the CPU whenever you are holding it.
The installation procedures vary with different types of CPU fan-and-heatsink assembly. The one shown here is served for DEMO only. For detailed information on how to install the one you bought, refer to its installation guidelines. 1. Pull out the socket lever away from the socket and fully lift it up over 90-degree angle. Locate and align the triangle mark with both the CPU and the socket body. Vertically place the CPU with its pin-side down into the socket. Be careful to insert the CPU into the socket. The CPU only fits in one orientation with the socket. DO NOT force the CPU into the socket. 2. After placing the CPU into position, push the socket lever down into its locked position to secure the CPU. The lever clicks when its locked into position.
3. The heatsink for CPU may have thermal interface material attached to its bottom. If not, applying a few squeeze of thermal paste to the CPU die will help to increase the contact.
4. Place the heatsink and fan assembly onto the retention frame. Match the heatsink clip with the socket mounting-lug. Hook the spring clip to the mounting-lug.
5. On the other side, push the retention clip straight down to lock into the plastic lug on the retention frame.
6. Connect the CPU cooling fan power cable to the CPUFAN1 connector on this motherboard.
The motherboard in this illustration is served for DEMO only, may not be the same type or model as the one described in this users manual. A higher fan speed will be helpful for better airflow and heat-dissipation. Nevertheless, stay alert to touch any heatsink since the high temperature generated by the working system is still possible.
2.5.2 DDR2 Memory Slots
This motherboard provides four 240-pin DIMM slots for Dual Channel DDRmemory modules with memory expansion size up to 8GB.
To reach the performance of Dual Channel DDR2, the following rules must be obeyed: For a 2-DIMM dual-channel installation: Populate DIMM modules of the same type and size on slots [DIMM1]+[DIMM2], or slots [DIMM3]+[DIMM4]. For a 4-DIMM dual-channel installation: Populate 2 DIMM modules of the same type and size on slots [DIMM1]+[DIMM2], and another 2 DIMM modules of the same type and size on slots [DIMM3]+[DIMM4].
[DIMM1] and [DIMM2] slots are made of the same color. [DIMM3] and [DIMM4] are made of another same color. Usually there is no hardware or BIOS setup requires after adding or removing memory modules, but you will have to clear the CMOS memory first if any memory module related problem occurs.
To install system memory: 1. Power off the computer and unplug the AC power cord before installing or removing memory modules. 2. Locate the DIMM slot on the board. 3. Hold two edges of the DIMM module carefully, keep away of touching its connectors. 4. Align the notch key on the module with the rib on the slot. 5. Firmly press the module into the slots until the ejector tabs at both sides of the slot automatically snaps into the mounting notch. Do not force the DIMM module in with extra force as the DIMM module only fit in one direction. 6. To remove the DIMM modules, push the two ejector tabs on the slot outward simultaneously, and then pull out the DIMM module. Static electricity can damage the electronic components of the computer or optional boards. Before starting these procedures, ensure that you are discharged of static electricity by touching a grounded metal object briefly.
2.5.3 PCI Express X16 Add-on Slots (Install Graphics Card)
These slots support the connections of graphics cards that comply with PCI Express specifications. This motherboard provides dual PCI-Express X16 slots for one or two graphics cards installation: One PCIE graphics card installation (Normal Mode): Insert your PCIE graphics card into [PCIEXP1] or [PCIEXP2] slot. One PCIE graphics card installation on the [PCIEXP2] slot supports the speed up to x8 only.
Two PCIE graphics cards installation (SLI Mode): (For model KN9 SLI only) Insert 2 identical SLI-ready graphics cards into PCIEXP1 and PCIEXP2 slots. The NVIDIA SLI technology currently supports the Windows XP operating system only.
To install two SLI-ready graphics cards under SLI Mode, you will need to: Prepare two identical NVIDIA certified, SLI-ready PCI Express x16 graphics cards (the same model from the same manufacturer). Make sure the graphics card driver supports the NVIDIA SLI technology. Download the latest driver form NVIDIA website (www.nvidia.com). Make sure your power supply unit is sufficient to provide the minimum power required.
The following illustration is served for DEMO only. All the devices, including the motherboard, the graphics cards, the SLI Bridge Connector, or the SLI bracket, may not be exactly the same type, shape, or model as the one you bought. 1. Insert the two graphics cards into PCIEXP1 and PCIEXP2 slots on the motherboard.
2. There are goldfingers on your SLI Graphics Cards reserved for the SLI Bridge Connector.
3. Locate the SLI Bridge Connector in the package.
4. Insert the SLI Bridge Connector into the SLI goldfingers on each graphics card.
5. The SLI bracket included in the package is used for supporting the SLI bridge connector and the two SLI graphics cards.

5.1 Troubleshooting (How to Get Technical Support?)
5.1.1 Q & A
Q: Do I need to clear the CMOS before I use a new motherboard to assemble my new computer system? A: Yes, we highly recommend that you clear the CMOS before installing a new motherboard. Please move the CMOS jumper from its default 1-2 position to 2-3 for a few seconds, and then back. When you boot up your system for the first time, follow the instructions in the user's manual to load the optimized defaults. Q: If my system hangs when I update the BIOS or set the wrong CPU parameters, what should I do? A: Whenever you update the BIOS or if the system hangs due to wrong CPU parameters setting, always clear CMOS jumper before booting up again. Q: Why does the system fail to boot up again right after a mechanical power-off? A: Please keep a 30-second interval between each mechanical power On/Off. Q: Why does the system fail to boot up and nothing displays on the screen after I did some over-clocking or non-standard settings inside the BIOS? A: It should not cause hardware or permanent damage to motherboard when BIOS settings were changed from default to over-clocking or non-standard status. We suggest the following three troubleshooting methods to discharge CMOS data, recover the hardware default status, and then making the motherboard work again. There is no need to bother returning the motherboard to where you bought it from or go through an RMA process. Step 1.Switch off the power supply unit and then switch it on again after one minute. If there is no power-switch on the power supply unit, disconnect its power cord for one minute and then reconnect. Press and hold the <Insert> key on the keyboard, and press the power-on button to boot up system. If it works, release the <Insert> key and hit <Del> key to enter the BIOS setup page to apply the correct settings. If the situation remains the same, repeat the procedures in Step 1 for three times, or try Step 2. Step 2.Switch off the power supply unit or disconnect the power cord. Open the chassis cover. Locate the CCMOS jumper near the button battery. Change the jumper position from default 1-2 to 2-3 for one minute to discharge the CMOS data, and then put it back to default 1-2 position. Close the chassis and switch on the power supply unit or plug in the power cord. Press the power-on button to boot up system. If it works, hit <Del> key to enter the BIOS setup page to do the correct settings. If the situation remains the same, try Step 3.
Q. Is the motherboard dead? Do I need to return it to where I bought from or go through an RMA process? A: After you had gone through the troubleshooting procedures, yet the problem still exists, or you find an evident damage on the motherboard. Please contact our RMA center.
