Before you proceed
Take note of the following precautions before you install motherboard components or change any motherboard settings.
Unplug the power cord from the wall socket before touching any component. Use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safely grounded object or to a metal object, such as the power supply case, before handling components to avoid damaging them due to static electricity. Avoid touching the ICs on components. Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded antistatic pad or in the bag that came with the component. Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the ATX power supply is switched off or the power cord is detached from the power supply. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard, peripherals, and/or components.
The motherboard comes with a standby power LED. When lit, this green LED (SB_PWR) indicates that the system is ON, in sleep mode, or in soft-off mode, a reminder that you should shut down the system and unplug the power cable before removing or plugging in any motherboard component.

1.8.4 PCI slots
Three 32-bit PCI slots are available on this motherboard. The slots support PCI cards such as LAN card, SCSI card, USB card, and other cards that comply with PCI specifications. This figure shows a typical PCI card installed into a slot.
Switch and jumpers
1. CPU external frequency selection (DSW Switches 1-5) The motherboard frequency is adjusted through the DIP switches. The white block represents the switch position. The illustration below shows the ON and OFF positions of the switches.
A7V400-MX DIP Switches
The option to set the CPU core bus frequency multiple is available only on unlocked CPUs. If you are using a locked CPU, setting the switches does not produce any effect.
The DSW switch tells the clock generator what frequency to send the CPU. This allows the selection of the CPUs external frequency (or bus clock). The bus clock multiplied by the frequency multiple equals the CPUs internal frequency (the advertised CPU speed).
The default CPU external frequency is 100MHz. If your CPU supports 133/166MHz external frequency, adjust the DSW settings before installing the motherboard to the chassis.

Set the CPU frequency only to the recommended settings. Frequencies other than the recommended CPU bus frequencies are not guaranteed to be stable.
2. USB device wake-up (3-pin USBPWR34, USBPWR56, USBPWR78) Set these jumpers to +5V to wake up the computer from S1 sleep mode (CPU stopped, DRAM refreshed, system running in low power mode) using the connected USB devices. Set to +5VSB to wake up from S3 sleep mode (no power to CPU, DRAM in slow refresh, power supply in reduced power mode). Both jumpers are set to pins 1-2 (+5V) by default because not all computers have the appropriate power supply to support this feature. The USBPWR34 jumper is for the rear USB ports. USBPWR56 and USBPWR78 are for the internal USB headers that you can connect to additional front/rear USB ports.
The USB device wake-up feature requires a power supply that can provide 500mA on the +5VSB lead for each USB port. Otherwise, the system does not power up. The total current consumed must NOT exceed the power supply capability (+5VSB) whether under normal condition or in sleep mode. USBPWR34

ASUS C.O.P. (CPU Overheating Protection)
ASUS C.O.P. (CPU Overheating Protection) is a hardware protection circuit that automatically shuts down the system power before temperatures go high enough to permanently damage our CPU. CrashFree BIOS CrashFree BIOS allows users to restore BIOS data from a floppy diskette even when BIOS code and data are corrupted during upgrade or invaded by virus. Unlike other competing vendors' products, ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an extra ROM. S/PDIF out interface Asus A7V400-MX provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via an S/PDIF-out (SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface) module. It allows to transfer digital audio without converting to analog format and keeps the best signal quality. (Notes: S/PDIF module is seperately sold).:. Seitenanfang
