DO N O Tforce the CPU into the socket to avoid bending of the pins. Step 3. Thermal grease between the CPU and the heatsink is also needed to improve heat transfer. Position the CPU directly above the socket such that its marked corner matches the base of the socket lever. When the CPU is in place. please kindly refer to the instruction manuals of the CPU fan and heatsink vendors. pressitfirmly on the socket while you push down the socket lever to secure the CPU.2.

It will cause permanent damage to the motherboard and the DIMM if you force the DIMM into the slot at incorrect orientation. Although this chipset can work on the Dual-Channel mode with 2 different modules.5 Installation of Memory Modules (DIMM) K7NF2-RAID motherboard provides three 184-pin D DR (Double Data Rate) DIMM slots. you need to install 2 D I M Ms into D DR1 and D DR3 slots. If you install 2 memory modules. Installing a DIMM Please make sure to disconnect power supply before adding or removing DIMMs or the system components. Step 1. Align a DIMM on the slot such that the notch on the DIMM matches the break on the slot. speed.To enable Dual-Channel mode. we recommend users to use two identical (the same brand. please install it on D DR1 first. If you install only one memory module. Firmly insert the DIMM into the slot until the retaining clips at both ends fully snap back in place and the DIMM is properly seated.

Installing an expansion card Step 1. Remove the system unit cover (if your motherboard is already installed in a chassis). AGP slot: The A G P slot is used to install an A G P graphics card. Please read the documentation of the expansion card and make necessary hardware settings for the card before you start the installation. Align the card connector with the slot and press firmly until the card is completely seated on the slot. 13 . Step 2.
