Make sure that the motherboard supports the CPU , Go to GIGABYTE s website for the latest CPU support list . Always turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before. installing the CPU to prevent hardware damage , Locate the pin one of the CPU The CPU cannot be inserted if oriented incorrectly . Apply an even and thin layer of thermal grease on the surface of the CPU . Do not turn on the computer if the CPU cooler is not installed otherwise overheating and. damage of the CPU may occur , Set the CPU host frequency in accordance with the CPU specifications It is not recom . mended that the system bus frequency be set beyond hardware specifications since it. does not meet the standard requirements for the peripherals If you wish to set the frequency. beyond the standard specifications please do so according to your hardware specifications. including the CPU graphics card memory hard drive etc . 1 3 1 Installing the CPU, A Locate the pin one denoted by a small triangle of the CPU socket and the CPU . A Small Triangle Mark, AM2 Socket, Denotes Pin One of the. Socket, A Small Triangle Marking, Denotes CPU Pin One AM2 AM2 CPU. GA M720 US3 Motherboard 12 , B Follow the steps below to correctly install the CPU into the motherboard CPU socket . Before installing the CPU make sure to turn off the computer and unplug the power. cord from the power outlet to prevent damage to the CPU . CPU Socket Locking, Lever,Step 1 Step 2 , Completely lift up the CPU socket locking lever Align the CPU pin one small triangle marking . with the triangle mark on the CPU socket and, gently insert the CPU into the socket Make. sure that the CPU pins fit perfectly into their, holes Once the CPU is positioned into its. socket place one finger down on the middle of, the CPU lowering the locking lever and latch . ing it into the fully locked position , Do not force the CPU into the CPU socket The CPU cannot fit in if oriented incorrectly Adjust. the CPU orientation if this occurs , 13 Hardware Installation. 1 3 2 Installing the CPU Cooler, Follow the steps below to correctly install the CPU cooler on the CPU The following procedure uses. the GIGABYTE cooler as the example ,Step 1 Step 2 . Apply an even and thin layer of thermal grease Place the CPU cooler on the CPU . on the surface of the installed CPU ,Step 3 Step 4 . Hook the CPU cooler clip to the mounting lug on Turn the cam handle from the left side to the. one side of the retention frame On the other side right side as the picture above shows to lock. push straight down on the the CPU cooler clip to into place Refer to your CPU cooler installa . hook it to the mounting lug on the retention frame tion manual for instructions on installing the. cooler ,Step 5 ,Finally attach the power connector of the CPU. cooler to the CPU fan header CPU FAN on,the motherboard . Use extreme care when removing the CPU cooler because the thermal grease tape between. the CPU cooler and CPU may adhere to the CPU Inadequately removing the CPU cooler. may damage the CPU ,GA M720 US3 Motherboard 14 , 1 4 Installing the Memory.

Make sure that the motherboard supports the memory It is recommended that memory of. the same capacity brand speed and chips be used , Go to GIGABYTE s website for the latest memory support list . Always turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before. installing the memory to prevent hardware damage . Memory modules have a foolproof design A memory module can be installed in only one. direction If you are unable to insert the memory switch the direction . 1 4 1 Dual Channel Memory Configuration, This motherboard provides four DDR2 memory sockets and supports Dual Channel. Technology After the memory is installed the BIOS will automatically detect the. specifications and capacity of the memory Enabling Dual Channel memory mode. will double the original memory bandwidth , The four DDR2 memory sockets are divided into two channels and each channel has two memory. sockets as following , Channel 0 DDR2 1 DDR2 3, Channel 1 DDR2 2 DDR2 4. Dual Channel Memory Configurations Table, DDR2 1 DDR2 2 DDR2 3 DDR2 4. Two Modules DS SS DS SS , DS SS DS SS, Four Modules DS SS DS SS DS SS DS SS. SS Single Sided DS Double Sided No Memory , If two memory modules are to be installed it is recom . mended that you install them in the DDR2 1 and DDR2 2. sockets , DDR2 1, DDR2 2, DDR2 4, DDR2 3, Due to CPU limitation read the following guidelines before installing the memory in Dual Channel mode . 1 Dual Channel mode cannot be enabled if only one DDR2 memory module is installed . 2 When enabling Dual Channel mode with two or four memory modules it is recommended that. memory of the same capacity brand speed and chips be used and installed in the same. colored DDR2 sockets for optimum performance , 15 Hardware Installation.
