|Awesome mid grade mobo Built new system 2 years ago (11-2007) using this mobo (A8V-EX) with AMD Athlon64 x2 dual core 2.0 GHz with 1Gb Ram. Great Service The motherboard was shipped promptly, but unfortunately had to be returned due to a compatibility issue.

|1 casefan and CPU fan automaticly slow down when CPU temps are low, which is all the time if in a room below 90F using stock fan on a 4200+. Beware, do not buy this board if you are planning on using Windows Vista. This board works great with Windows XP.|

Latest processor technology
The AMD Athlon 64FX and Athlon 64 desktop processors are based on AMDs 64-bit and 32-bit architecture, which represents the landmark introduction of the industrys first x86-64 technology. These processors provide a dramatic leap forward in compatibility, performance, investment protection, and reduced total cost of ownership and development. See page 2-6.
HyperTransport Technology is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase the communication speed between integrated circuits in computers, networking and telecommunicatons equipment up to 48 times faster than other existing technologies.
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 4-18 and 5-27 for details.
Dual Channel DDR memory support
Employing the Double Data Rate (DDR) memory technology, the motherboard supports up to 4GB of system memory using DDR400/333/ 266 DIMMs. The ultra-fast 400MHz memory bus delivers the required bandwidth for the latest 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. See page 2-10.

1 0. Chassis intrusion connector (4-1 pin CHASSIS) This connector is for a chassis-mounted intrusion detection sensor or switch. Connect one end of the chassis intrusion sensor or switch cable to this connector. The chassis intrusion sensor or switch sends a high-level signal to this connector when a chassis component is removed or replaced. The signal is then generated as a chassis intrusion event. By default, the pins labeled Chassis Signal and Ground are shorted with a jumper cap. Remove the jumper caps only when you intend to use the chassis intrusion detection feature.

Starting up for the first time
After making all the connections, replace the system case cover. Be sure that all switches are off. Connect the power cord to the power connector at the back of the system chassis. Connect the power cord to a power outlet that is equipped with a surge protector. Turn on the devices in the following order: a. Monitor b. External SCSI devices (starting with the last device on the chain) c. System power
After applying power, the system power LED on the system front panel case lights up. For systems withATX power supplies, the system LED lights up when you press the ATX power button. If your monitor complies with green standards or if it has a power standby feature, the monitor LED may light up or switch between orange and green after the system LED turns on. The system then runs the power-on self tests or POST. While the tests are running, the BIOS beeps (see BIOS beep codes table below) or additional messages appear on the screen. If you do not see anything within 30 seconds from the time you turned on the power, the system may have failed a power-on test. Check the jumper settings and connections or call your retailer for assistance.
At power on, hold down the <Delete> key to enter the BIOS Setup. Follow the instructions in Chapter 4.
