1. Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC1) This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The RAM data in CMOS, that include system setup information such as system passwords, is powered by the onboard button cell battery. To erase the RTC RAM: 1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord. 2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2. 3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer. 4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC1 jumper default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!

2. USB device wake-up (3-pin USBPW12, USBPW34, USBPW56, USBPW78) 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). All jumpers are set to pins 1-2 (+5V) by default because not all computers have the appropriate power supply to support this feature. The USBPW12 and USBPW34 jumpers are for the rear USB ports.The USBPW56 and USBPW78 jumpers are for the internal USB header that you can connect to the front USB ports.

1. 2. This feature requires a power supply that can provide 500mA on the +5VSB lead for each USB port. The total current consumed must NOT exceed the power supply capability (+5VSB) whether under normal or in sleep mode.

3. IDE connectors (40-1 pin PRI_IDE, SEC_IDE) This connector supports the provided UltraDMA100/66 IDE ribbon cable. Connect the cables blue connector to the primary (recommended) or secondary IDE connector, then connect the gray connector to the UltraDMA100/66 slave device (hard disk drive) and the black connector to the UltraDMA100/66 master device. It is recommended that you connect non-UltraDMA100/66 devices to the secondary IDE connector. If you install two hard disks, you must configure the second drive as a slave device by setting its jumper accordingly. Refer to the hard disk documentation for the jumper settings. BIOS supports specific device bootup. If you have more than two UltraDMA100/66/33 devices, purchase another UltraDMA100/66/33 cable. You may configure two hard disks to be both master devices with two ribbon cables one for the primary IDE connector and another for the secondary IDE connector.

Follow these steps to install the SATA hard disks for RAID configuration.
Before setting up your new RAID array, verify the status of your hard disks. Make sure the Master/Slave jumpers are configured properly. Both the data and power SATA cables are new cables. You cannot use older 40-pin 80-conductor IDE or regular IDE power cables with Serial ATA drives. Installing Serial ATA (SATA) hard disks require the use of new Serial ATA cable (4-conductor) which supports the Serial ATA protocol and a Serial ATA power cable. Either end of the Serial ATA data cable can be connected to the SATA hard disk or the SATA connector on the motherboard.
1. Install the Serial ATA hard disks into the drive bays. 2. Connect one end of the Serial ATA cable to the motherboards primary Serial ATA connector (SATA1). 3. Connect the other end of Serial ATA cable to the master Serial ATA hard disk. 4. Connect one end of the second Serial ATA cable to the motherboards secondary Serial ATA connector (SATA2). 5. Connect the other end of Serial ATA cable to the secondary Serial ATA hard disk. 6. Connect the Serial ATA power cable to the power connector on each drive. 7. Proceed to section 5.4.2 Entering VIA Tech RAID BIOS Utility for the next procedure.
