Installation of Memory Modules



  HT 2000
AMD64 technology provides simultaneous support for 32-bit and 64-bit computing with 2000MT/s system bus HyperTransport technology.
 
  Dual core
Outperforms single-core processors on most multithreaded applications while running at lower clock speeds and consuming less power.
 
  64bit support
Allows platforms to access more memory and larger files. Large memory intensive applications can see dramatic performance increases .
 
  Dual Channel DDR2 800
Doubles the bandwidth of your system memory up to 12.8GB/s and pumps up the system performance.
 
  NVRAID
Uniquely allows users to assign an extra disk to any RAID volume so that should a disk failure occur NVIDIA RAID will automatically remote the failed disk and replace it with the spare.
 
  Serial-ATA II
Doubles the transfer speed of SATA, running at speed up to 3.0Gb/s, and fully compatible with the soon-to-be-released SATA HDD, CD-ROM and other cutting-edge devices.
 
  ATA133
Supports Ultra DMA 33/66/100/133 IDE devices, data transfer rate up to 133MB/s
 
  Gigabit LAN
Delivers transfer speed ten times faster than conventional 10/ 100 Ethernet connections, supporting a high transfer rate up to Gigabit/s. Gigabit LAN is the networking standards for the future and is ideal for handing large amount of data such as video, audio, and voice.
 
  Certified For Windows Vista
The latest generation Microsoft O.S., delivers better personal productivity and digital entertainment on your PC through its improved reliability, security, and performance.
 
  AM2
Supports AMD Socket AM2 Athlon 64 FX/Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core/Athlon 64/Sempron processors with 64-bit architecture. Features 2000 MT/s HyperTransport technology and dual-channel DDR2 800 memory support.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Please read the notes carefully before updating BIOS.
1.Do not update the BIOS if the system is running fine. Unsuccessful BIOS flash may cause the system fails to boot up. The manufacturer is not responsible for any BIOS flash failure.
2.Make sure your M/B PCB version number first, and then read the updated description & special note carefully to check if the new BIOS version patch pertain to your current problem.
(How to recognize the M/B PCB version)
3.Please DO NOT reboot system,unplug power supply and remove battery during BIOS update process.
4.It is recommended to use the updated flash utility included in each BIOS download package.
(How to use flash utility).
