See page 2-5 for details.
Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technology
The NVIDIA Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technology allows two graphics processing units (GPUs) in a single system. This technology takes advantage of the PCI Express bus architecture and features intelligent hardware and software solutions that allows multiple GPUs to work together and achieve exceptional graphics performance. See Chapter 6 for details.
AMD Cool n Quiet! Technology
The motherboard supports the AMD Cool n Quiet! Technology that dynamically and automatically changes the CPU speed, voltage and amount of power depending on the task the CPU performs. See pages 4-25, 53 and 5-9.
The motherboard comes with a Gigabit LAN controller built into the NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI chipset to meet your growing networking needs. The controller uses the PCI Express segment to provide faster data bandwidth for your Internet, LAN, and file sharing requirements. See page 2-22 for details.
DDR2 memory support
The motherboard supports DDR2 memory that features data transfer rates of 800/667/533 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR2 architecture doubles the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidths of up to 12.8 GB/s. See pages 210 to 2-13 for details.
Serial ATA 3Gb/s RAID
The motherboard supports the next-generation Serial ATA hard drives based on the SATA 3Gb/s storage specification. The onboard NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI MCP allows RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1, RAID 5, and JBOD. See page 225.

5.3.1 Cool n Quiet! Technology
The motherboard supports the AMD Cool n Quiet! Technology that dynamically and automatically change the CPU speed, voltage, and amount of power depending on the task the CPU performs.
Enabling Cool n Quiet! Technology
To enable Cool n Quiet! Technology: 1. 2. 3. 4. Turn on the system and enter BIOS by pressing the <Del> key during the Power On Self-Tests (POST). Go to Advanced -> CPU Configuration -> AMD Cool nQuiet Function and set it to [Enabled]. See section 4.4 Advanced Menu. Save your changes and exit BIOS Setup. Reboot your computer and set your Power Option Properties depending on your operating system.
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. From the Windows 2000/XP operating system, click the Start button. Select Settings, then Control Panel. Make sure the Control Panel is set to Classic View. Double-click the Display icon in the Control Panel then select the Screen Saver tab. Click the Power. button. The following dialog box appears. From the Power schemes combo list box, select Minimal Power Management. Click OK to effect settings.
Make sure to install the Cool n Quiet! driver and application before using this feature.

At the bottom of the screen are the navigation keys. These keys allow you to move through and select menu options.
Creating a RAID Volume
To create a RAID volume: 1. From the NVIDIA RAID utility Define a New Array menu, select RAID Mode then press <Enter>. The following submenu appears. Use the up or down arrow keys Mirroring to select a RAID mode then press Striping <Enter>. Stripe Mirroring
Press <TAB> select the Striping Block then press <Enter>. The following submenu appears:
8K 16K 32K 64K 128K Optim
If you selected Striping or Stripe Mirroring, use the up or down arrow keys to select the stripe size for your RAID 0 array then press <Enter>.The available values range from 8 KB to 128 KB. The default selection is 128 KB. The strip value should be chosen based on the planned drive usage. 8 /16 KB - low disk usage 64 KB - typical disk usage 128 KB - performance disk usage
TIP: For server systems, we recommend using a lower array block size. For multimedia computer systems used mainly for audio and video editing, we recommend a higher array block size for optimum performance.
3.` Press <TAB> to select the Free Disks area. Use the left or right arrow keys to assign the array disks. 4. Press <F7> to create RAID set. The following message box appears.
Clear disk data?
Press <Y> to clear the selected disks or <N> to proceed without clearing the disks. The following screen appears.
Take caution in using this option. All data on the RAID drives will be lost!

A new set of navigation keys is displayed on the bottom of the screen. Press <Ctrl+X> to save settings and exit.
Rebuilding a RAID array
To rebuild a RAID array: 1. From the Array List menu, use the up or down arrow keys to select a RAID array then press <Enter>. The RAID Array details appear.
NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI media and communications processors (MCPs) deliver a complete range of solutions for AMD-based discrete platforms. Performance enhancing features include NVIDIA LinkBoost technology to automatically increase bus speeds and NVIDIA SLI technology for scalable graphics performance. NVIDIA SLI (Scalable Link Interface) takes advantage of the increased bandwidth of the PCI Express bus architecture and features intelligent hardware and software that allows two GPUs to efficiently work together to deliver earth-shattering, scalable performance. The M2N-E SLI supports AMD socket AM2 single-core Athlon 64/ Sempron and dual-core Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2 processors with 2MB / 1MB / 512KB L2 cache, which is based on 64-bit architecture. It features 2000 / 1600 MT/s HyperTransport Bus, dual-channel un-buffered DDR2 800 memory support and AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology. The advanced processing technology contains two physical CPU cores with individually dedicated L2 caches to satisfy the rising demand for more powerful processing capability. DDR2 is the next generation memory technology to replace the current DDR. With the highest speed up to 800MHz, DDR2 memory provides great performance for 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications. . The NVIDIA native Gigabit LAN controller delivers transfer speeds up to ten times faster than conventional 10/100 Ethernet connections. Gigabit LAN is the networking standard for the early future and is ideal for handling large amounts of data such as video, audio, and voice. This motherboard provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via an coaxial S/PDIF-out (SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface) jack. It allows transferring digital audio without converting to analog format and keeps the best signal quality. IEEE 1394a interface provides high-speed digital interface for audio/video appliances such as digital television, digital video camcorders, storage peripherals and other PC portable devices. This motherboard supports next-generation SATA hard drives based on the new SATA 3Gb/s storage specification. The onboard NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI MCP allows RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1, RAID 5 and JBOD configurations for 4 SATA connectors. USB 2.0 is the latest connectivity standard for next generation components and peripherals. Backwards compatible with current USB 1.1 peripherals, USB 2.0 delivers transfer speeds up to 40 times faster at 480Mb/s, for easy connectivity and ultra-fast data transfers. The ASUS Q-Connector allows you to connect or disconnect chassis front panel cables in one easy step with one complete module. This unique adapter eliminates the trouble of plugging in one cable at a time, making connection quick and accurate. The ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 allows users to restore corrupted BIOS data from a USB flash disk containing the BIOS file. This utility saves users the cost and hassle of buying a replacement BIOS chip. EZ Flash 2 is a user-friendly BIOS update utility. Simply press the pre-defined hotkey to launch this tool and update BIOS from a USB flash disk before entering the OS. You can update your BIOS only in a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy diskette or using an OS-based flash utility. The motherboard and its packaging comply with the European Union's Restriction on the use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS). This is in line with the ASUS vision of creating environment-friendly and recyclable products and packaging to safeguard consumers' health while minimizing the impact on the environment.
