How to Install the EpoX

the motherboard so you are facing the front of it. The memory module
has one notche on the bottom, which is offset. Push the leavers down
on the memory socket marked DIM1, the closest one to the CPU, match the notch
in the bottom of the memory module to the key on the socket, and use both
hands to evenly and firmly insert the module, and make sure it is fully seated. The leavers
at the ends of the socket will come up and dovetail with the sides
when the module is properly inserted. Push inward on them to be sure
they are fully in place.
Memory modules can be plugged into any of the three
memory sockets in any order. DIMM1 allows more clearance for the
drive cables. Other motherboards may require that the memory be
plugged in a specific order.
17. Verify that the Clear CMOS jumper (JBAT), located just

two pins furthest from the front of the motherboard. Do not change
this jumper when power is on. It could damage the motherboard.
18. Set Front Side Bus (FSB) jumper (JCK1) located to the
rear and just to the right of the AGP socket is set to the correct FSB for
your processor. Current AMD Athlon XP (Palomino core) and recent Thunderbird
core Athlons have an FSB of 133 MHz. The three motherboards I installed
came with the jumper set for 100 MHz. So, most likely you will have
to move it to pins two and three, the pins furthest left when looking from
the front of the board.
Your motherboard should look like this:
