2.1Motherboard installation

Before you install the motherboard, study the configuration of your chassis to ensure that the motherboard fits into it. The P4B-E uses the ATX form factor that measures 12 inches x 9.6 inches, a standard fit for most chassis.

Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing the motherboard. Failure to do so may cause you physical injury and damage motherboard components.

2.1.1 Placement direction

When installing the motherboard, make sure that you place it into the chassis in the correct orientation. The edge with external ports goes to the rear part of the chassis. Refer to the image below.

2.1.2 Screw holes

Place ten (10) screws into the holes indicated by circles to secure the motherboard to the chassis.

Do not overtighten the screws! Doing so may damage the motherboard.

Place this side towards the rear of the chassis
