Installing the CPU
To install a CPU: Locate the CPU socket on the motherboard.
Before installing the CPU, ensure that the cam box is facing towards you and the load lever is on your left.
Press the load lever with your thumb (A), then move it to the left (B) until it is released from the retention tab.
To prevent damage to the socket pins, do not remove the PnP cap unless you are installing a CPU.
Retention tab A
B Load lever
Lift the load lever in the direction of the arrow to a 135 angle. Lift the load plate with your thumb and forefinger to a 100 angle.
Load plate 4
Remove the PnP cap from the CPU socket.
Position the CPU over the socket, ensuring that the gold triangle is on the bottomleft corner of the socket, and then fit the socket alignment key into the CPU notch.
The CPU fits in only one correct orientation. DO NOT force the CPU into the socket to prevent bending the connectors on the socket and damaging the CPU!
Gold triangle mark
CPU notch Alignment key
Apply several drops of thermal paste to the exposed area of the CPU that the heatsink will be in contact with, ensuring that it is spread in an even thin layer.
Some heatsinks come with preapplied thermal paste. If so, skip this step. The thermal paste is toxic and inedible. If it gets into your eyes or touches your skin, ensure to wash it off immediately and seek professional medical help. To prevent contaminating the paste, DO NOT spread the paste with your finger directly.
Close the load plate (A), and then push the load lever (B) until it snaps into the retention tab.
Installing the CPU heatsink and fan
The Intel LGA1366 processor requires a specially designed heatsink and fan assembly to ensure optimum thermal condition and performance.
When you buy a boxed Intel processor, the package includes the CPU fan and heatsink assembly. If you buy a CPU separately, ensure that you use only Intelcertified multidirectional heatsink and fan. Your Intel LGA1366 heatsink and fan assembly comes in a push-pin design and requires no tool to install.
Due to Intel CPU spec definition, the system will not boot if only one DIMM is installed in DIMM slot A2, B2, or C2. Follow the table above for recommended memory configuration.
You may install 1GB, 2GB and 4GB unbuffered nonECC DDR3 DIMMs into the DIMM sockets.
You may install varying memory sizes in Channel A, Channel B and Channel C. The system maps the total size of the lower-sized channel for the dual-channel or triple-channel configuration. Any excess memory from the higher-sized channel is then mapped for single-channel operation. Due to Intel spec definition, X.M.P. DIMMs and DDR3-1600 are supported for one DIMM per channel only. According to Intel CPU spec, DIMMs with voltage requirement over 1.65V may damage the CPU permanently. We recommend you install the DIMMs with the voltage requirement below 1.65V. Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor. Due to the memory address limitation on 32-bit Windows OS, when you install 4GB or more memory on the motherboard, the actual usable memory for the OS can be about 3GB or less. For effective use of memory, we recommend that you install a 64-bit Windows OS when having 4GB or more memory installed on the motherboard. This motherboard does not support DIMMs made up of 256 megabit (Mb) chips or less. The default memory operation frequency is dependent on its SPD. Under the default state, some memory modules for overclocking may operate at a lower frequency than the vendor-marked value. To operate at the vendor-marked or at a higher frequency, see section 3.3 Extreme Tweaker menu for manual memory frequency adjustment. For system stability, use a more efficient memory cooling system to support a full memory load (6 DIMMs) or overclocking condition.
