1.4 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) with studs, or (2) with spacers. Basically, the best way to attach the board is with 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. 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. Locate all the screw holes on the motherboard and the chassis base. Face the chassiss rear panel. Place all the studs or spacers needed on the chassis base and have them tightened. Face the motherboards I/O ports toward the chassiss rear panel. Line up all the motherboards screw holes with those studs or spacers on the chassis. 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.
To install this motherboard: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
1.5 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.
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
1.5.1 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, or (d) whenever there is modification on the CPU or memory modules. 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. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Power off the system. 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. Power on the system. For incorrect CPU ratio/clock settings in the BIOS, press <Del> key to enter the BIOS setup menu right after powering on system. Set the CPU operating speed back to its default or an appropriate value. Save and exit the BIOS setup menu. Another easy way to clear the CMOS memory can be done by switching EZ-CCMOS1, see the section of Connecting Rear Panel I/O Devices in this manual for detail. The C.C. POST Code appears when either the external EZ-CCMOS1 switch or the internal CCMOS1 jumper is not set to its normal position. IN9 32X/IN9 32X -MAX
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. 2. 3. 4. 5. Power off the system and disconnect with AC power source. Remove the exhausted battery. Insert a new CR2032 or equivalent battery. Pay attention to its polarity. The + side is its positive polarity. Connect AC power source and power on the system. 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.
1.6 Connecting Chassis Components
1.6.1 ATX Power Connectors
These connectors provide the connection from an ATX power supply. As the plugs from the power supply fit in only one orientation, find the correct one and push firmly down into these connectors.
ATXPWR1: ATX 24-Pin Power Connector The power supply with 20-pin or 24-pin cables can both be connected to this 24-pin connector. Connect from pin-1 for either type. However, a 20-pin power supply may cause the system unstable or even unbootable for the sake of insufficient electricity. A minimum power of 300W or higher is recommended. ATX12V1: ATX 12V 8-Pin Power Connector This connector supplies power to CPU. The system will not start without connecting power to this one. ATX4P1: Auxiliary 12V Power Connector This connector provides an auxiliary power source for devices added on PCI Express slots.
1.6.2 Front Panel Switches & Indicators Headers
This header is used for connecting switches and LED indicators on the chassis front panel. Watch the power LED pin position and orientation. The mark + align to the pin in the figure below stands for positive polarity for the LED connection. Please pay attention when connecting these headers. A wrong orientation will only result in the LED not lighting, but a wrong connection of the switches could cause system malfunction.

1.9 Onboard Indicators and Buttons
1.9.1 POST Code Displayer
This is an LED device to display the POST Code, the acronym for Power On Self Test. The computer will execute the POST action whenever you power on the computer. The POST process is controlled by the BIOS. It is used to detect the status of the computers main components and peripherals. Each POST Code corresponds to different checkpoints that are also defined by the BIOS in advance. For example, memory presence test is an important checkpoint and its POST Code is C1. When the BIOS execute any POST item, it will write the corresponding POST Code into the address 80h. If the POST passes, the BIOS will process the next POST item and write the next POST Code into the address 80h. If the POST fails, we can check the POST Code in address 80h to find out where the problem lies. This LED device also displays the POST Code of AC2005, an uGuru chipset developed exclusively by abit. The decimal point lights up during the AC2005 POST action.
See Appendix for both AWARD and AC2005 POST Code definitions.
