3. Position the CPU above the socket such that its marked corner matches the base of the socket lever. 4. Carefully insert the CPU into the socket until it fits in place.
The CPU fits only in one correct orientation. DO NOT force the CPU into the socket to prevent bending the pins and damaging the CPU!
5. When the CPU is in place, push down the socket lever to secure the CPU. The lever clicks on the side tab to indicate that it is locked. 6. Install a CPU heatsink and fan following the instructions that came with the heatsink package. 7. Connect the CPU fan cable to the CPU_FAN1 connector on the motherboard.
The motherboard comes with four Double Data Rate (DDR) Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets. These sockets support up to 4GB system memory using 184-pin unbuffered non-ECC PC3200*/2700/PC2100 DDR DIMMs. The following figure shows the location of the DDR DIMM sockets. (*Overclocking mode)
1.9.1 Memory configurations
You may install 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, and 1GB DDR DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.
1. Installing DDR DIMMs other than the recommended configurations may cause memory sizing error or system boot failure. Use any of the recommended configurations in Table 1. In dual-channel configurations, install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs for each channel. Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum compatibility, it is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor. Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB (Front Side Bus). Refer to Table 2. DIMMs installed into any three sockets will function in single-channel mode. When all four sockets are populated with 1GB DIMMs (total 4GB), the system may detect only 3+GB (a little less than 4GB) due to ICH5 resource allocation. Double-sided DDR DIMMs with x16 (databus width = 16-bit) memory chips are not supported due to chipset limitation. It is recommended to use the blue DIMM slots first.

* For dual-channel configuration (3), you may: install identical DIMMs in all four sockets, or install identical DIMMs in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (blue sockets) and identical DIMMs in DIMM_A2 and DIMM_B2 (black sockets)
Memory frequency/CPU FSB synchronization
This motherboard supports different memory frequencies depending on the CPU FSB (Front Side Bus) and the type of DDR DIMM. CPU FSB *800 MHz 533 MHz 400 MHz * Overclocked mode
When overclocking to 800MHz CPU FSB, the system supports only DDR400 (PC3200) DIMMs due to chipset limitation. The following FSB/DDR ratios are not supported: 400/333, 400/400, 533/400.

Obtain DDR DIMMs only from ASUS qualified vendors for better system performance. Visit the ASUS website (www.asus.com) for the latest QVL. FSB800 and DDR400 is not a default specification, take caution when overclocking your system.
1.9.2 Installing a DIMM
Make sure to unplug the power supply before adding or removing DIMMs or other system components. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to both the motherboard and the components.
Follow these steps to install a DIMM. 1. Unlock a DIMM socket by pressing the retaining clips outward. 2. Align a DIMM on the socket such that the notch on the DIMM matches the break on the socket. 3. Firmly insert the DIMM into the socket until the retaining clips snap back in Unlocked Retaining Clip place and the DIMM is properly seated.
Managing and updating your BIOS
The original BIOS file for this motherboard is in the support CD. Copy the original BIOS to a bootable floppy disk in case you need to restore the BIOS in the future.
2.1.1 Creating a bootable floppy disk
1. Do either one of the following to create a bootable floppy disk. DOS environment Insert a 1.44 MB floppy disk into the drive. At the DOS prompt, type: format A:/S <Enter> Windows environment a. From your Windows desktop, click on Start, point to Settings, then click on Control Panel. b. Double-click on Add/Remove Programs icon from the Control Panel window. c. Click on the Startup Disk tab, then on Create Disk. button. d. Insert a 1.44 MB floppy disk when prompted. Follow the succeeding screen instructions to complete the process. 2. Copy the original (or the latest) motherboard BIOS to the bootable floppy disk.
2.1.2 Using AFUDOS to update the BIOS
Update the BIOS using the AFUDOS.EXE utility in DOS environment. 1. Visit the ASUS website (www.asus.com) to download the latest BIOS file for your motherboard. Save the BIOS file to a bootable floppy disk.
Write down the BIOS file name to a piece of paper. You need to type the exact BIOS file name at the prompt.
2. Copy the AFUDOS.EXE utility from the support CD to the bootable floppy disk that contains the BIOS file. 3. Boot the system from the floppy disk.
DO NOT use the P4P8X BIOS file for this motherboard.
4. At the DOS prompt, type the command line: afudos /i<filename> where filename means the latest (or original) BIOS file that you copied to the bootable floppy disk. The screen displays the status of the update process.
The BIOS information on the screen is for reference only. What you see on your screen may not be exactly the same as shown.

DO NOT shutdown or reset the system while updating the BIOS! Doing so may cause system boot failure!
When the BIOS update process is complete, the utility returns to the DOS prompt.

5. Reboot the system from the hard disk.
2.1.3 Using ASUS EZ Flash to update the BIOS
The ASUS EZ Flash feature allows you to easily update the BIOS without having to go through the long process of booting from a diskette and using a DOS-based utility. The EZ Flash is built-in the BIOS firmware so it is accessible by simply pressing <Alt+F2> during the Power-On Self Tests (POST).
Because the BIOS software is constantly being updated, the following BIOS setup screens and descriptions are for reference purposes only, and may not exactly match what you see on your screen.
