    Overheating

    Overheating can seriously damage the CPU and motherboard. Always make sure the

    cooling fans work properly to protect the CPU from overheating. Be sure to apply an

    even layer of thermal paste (or thermal tape) between the CPU and the heatsink to

    enhance heat dissipation.

    Replacing the CPU

    When replacing the CPU, always turn o the systems power supply and unplug the

    power supplys power cord to ensure the safety of the CPU.

    Overclocking

    This motherboard is designed to support overclocking. Before attempting to overclock,

    please make sure that all other system components can tolerate overclocking. Any

    attempt to operate beyond product specications is not recommend. MSI does not

    guarantee the damages or risks caused by inadequate operation beyond product

    specications.

    CPU & Heatsink InstallationWhen installing a CPU, always remember to install a CPU heatsink. A CPU heatsinkis necessary to prevent overheating and maintain system stability. Follow the stepsbelow to ensure correct CPU and heatsink installation. Wrong installation can damageboth the CPU and the motherboard.

    1. Push the load lever down to unclip it and lift to the fully open position.

    2. The load plate will automatically lift up as the load lever is pushed to the fully openposition.

    5. When you press down the load lever the PnP cap will automatically pop up fromthe CPU socket. Do not discard the PnP cap. Always replace the PnP cap if theCPU is removed from the socket.

    6. Evenly spread a thin layer of thermal paste (or thermal tape) on the top of theCPU. This will help in heat dissipation and prevent CPU overheating.

    your system.

    Whenever the CPU is not installed, always protect the CPU socket pins by covering

    the socket with the plastic cap.

    If you purchased a separate CPU and heatsink/ cooler, Please refer to the

    documentation in the heatsink/ cooler package for more details about installation.

    7. Locate the CPU fan connector on the motherboard.

    8. Place the heatsink on the motherboard with the fans cable facing towards the fanconnector and the fasteners matching the holes on the motherboard.

    9. Push down the heatsink until the four fasteners get wedged into the holes onthe motherboard. Press the four fasteners down to fasten the heatsink. As eachfastener locks into position a click should be heard.

    10. Inspect the motherboard to ensure that the fastener-ends have been properly

    locked in place.11. Finally, attach the CPU fan cable to the CPU fan connector on the motherboard.

    Line up the video card on top of the expansion slot(s) with the display ports facingout of the computer case. For a single video card installation, using the PCI_E2slot is recommended.

    Push the video card into its expansion slot(s). Depending on the expansion slot(s)

    used, there should be clip(s) on the expansion slot(s) that will lock in place.If needed, screw the edge of the graphics card to the computer case. Some videocards might require a power cable directly from the power supply.

If the motherboardhas a System Hardware Monitor chipset on-board, you must use a specially designedfan with a speed sensor to take advantage of the CPU fan control. Remember toconnect all system fans. Some system fans may not connect to the motherboard and

    will instead connect to the power supply directly. A system fan can be plugged intoany available system fan connector.

    Important

    Please refer to your processors ocial website or consult your vendor to nd

    recommended CPU heatsink.

    These connectors support Smart Fan Control with liner mode. The Command

    Center utility can be installed to automatically control the fan speeds according to

    the CPUs and systems temperature.

    If there are not enough ports on the motherboard to connect all system fans,

    adapters are available to connect a fan directly to a power supply.

    Before rst boot up, ensure that there are no cables impeding any fan blades.
