Who knew that at age 19, I would be a World Champion PC gamer. When I was 13, I actually played competitive billiards in professional tournaments and won four or five games off guys who played at the highest level. I actually thought of making a career of it, but at that young age situations change rapidly. Because I’ve been blessed with great hand-eye coordination and a grasp of mathematics (an important element in video gaming) I gravitated to that activity. GOING PRO I started professional gaming in 1999 when I entered the CPL (Cyberathlete Professional League) tournament in Dallas and won $4,000 for coming in third place. Emerging as one of the top players in the United States, a company interested in sponsoring me flew me to Sweden to compete against the top 12 players in the world. I won 18 straight games, lost none, and took first place, becoming the number one ranked Quake III player in the world in the process. Two months later I followed that success by traveling to Dallas and defending my title as the world’s best Quake III player, winning the $40,000 grand prize. From there I entered competitions all over the world, including Singapore, Korea, Germany, Australia, Holland and Brazil in addition to Los Angeles, New York and St. Louis. WINNING STREAK I was excited to showcase my true gaming skills when defending my title as CPL Champion of the year at the CPL Winter 2001 because I would be competing in a totally different first person shooter (fps) game, Alien vs. Predator II. I won that competition and walked away with a new car. The next year I won the same title playing Unreal Tournament 2003, becoming the only three-time CPL champion of the year. And I did it playing a different game each year, something no one else has ever done and a feat of which I am extremely proud. At QuakeCon 2002, I faced off against my rival ZeRo4 in one of the most highly anticipated matches of the year, winning in a 14 to (-1) killer victory. Competing at Quakecon 2004, I became the World’s 1st Doom3 Champion by defeating Daler in a series of very challenging matches and earning $25,000 for the victory. Since then Fatal1ty has traveled the globe to compete against the best in the world, winning prizes and acclaim, including the 2005 CPL World Tour Championship in New York City for a $150,000 first place triumph. In August 2007, Johnathan was awarded the first ever Lifetime Achievement Award in the four year history of the eSports-Award for “showing exceptional sportsmanship, taking part in shaping eSports into what it is today and for being the prime representative of this young sport. He has become the figurehead for eSports worldwide”. LIVIN’ LARGE Since my first big tournament wins, I have been a “Professional Cyberathlete”, traveling the world and livin’ large with lots of International media coverage on outlets such as MTV, ESPN and a 60 Minutes segment on CBS to name only a few. It's unreal - it's crazy. I’m living a dream by playing video games for a living. I’ve always been athletic and took sports like hockey and football very seriously, working out and training hard. This discipline helps me become a better gamer and my drive to be the best has opened the doors necessary to become a professional. A DREAM Now, another dream is being realized – building the ultimate gaming computer, made up of the best parts under my own brand. Quality hardware makes a huge difference in competitions…a couple more frames per second and everything gets really nice. It’s all about getting the computer processing faster and allowing more fluid movement around the maps. My vision for Fatal1ty hardware is to allow gamers to focus on the game without worrying about their equipment, something I’ve preached since I began competing. I don’t want to worry about my equipment. I want to be there – over and done with - so I can focus on the game. I want it to be the fastest and most stable computer equipment on the face of the planet, so quality is what Fatal1ty Brand products represent.

Before you install the motherboard, study the configuration of your chassis to ensure that the motherboard fits into it. Pre-installation Precautions Take note of the following precautions before you install motherboard components or change any motherboard settings. • Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing the motherboard. Failure to do so may cause physical injuries to you and damages to motherboard components. • In order to avoid damage from static electricity to the motherboard’s components, NEVER place your motherboard directly on a carpet. Also remember to use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safety grounded object before you handle the components. • Hold components by the edges and do not touch the ICs. • Whenever you uninstall any components, place them on a grounded anti-static pad or in the bag that comes with the components. • When placing screws to secure the motherboard to the chassis, please do not over tighten the screws! Doing so may damage the motherboard. E n g l i s h 14 Fatal1ty B450 Gaming-ITX/ac Series 2.1 Installing the CPU Unplug all power cables before installing the CPU. 1 2 h s i l g n E 15

Fatal1ty B450 Gaming-ITX/ac Series 2.2 Installing the CPU Fan and Heatsink After you install the CPU into this motherboard, it is necessary to install a larger heatsink and cooling fan to dissipate heat. You also need to spray thermal grease between the CPU and the heatsink to improve heat dissipation. Make sure that the CPU and the heatsink are securely fastened and in good contact with each other. Please turn off the power or remove the power cord before changing a CPU or heatsink. Installing the CPU Box Cooler SR1 1 2 h s i l g n E 17

For dual channel configuration, you always need to install identical (the same brand, speed, size and chip-type) DDR4 DIMM pairs. 2. It is unable to activate Dual Channel Memory Technology with only one memory module installed. 3. It is not allowed to install a DDR, DDR2 or DDR3 memory module into a DDR4 slot; otherwise, this motherboard and DIMM may be damaged.

Fatal1ty B450 Gaming-ITX/ac Series 2.4 Expansion Slot (PCI Express Slot) There is 1 PCI Express slot on the motherboard. Before installing an expansion card, please make sure that the power supply is switched off or the power cord is unplugged. Please read the documentation of the expansion card and make necessary hardware settings for the card before you start the installation. PCIe slot: PCIE1 (PCIe 3.0 x16 slot) is used for PCI Express x16 lane width graphics cards. h s i l g n E 29 2.5 Jumpers Setup The illustration shows how jumpers are setup. When the jumper cap is placed on the pins, the jumper is “Short”. If no jumper cap is placed on the pins, the jumper is “Open”.
Clear CMOS Jumper (CLRCMOS1) (see p.7, No. 17) 2-pin Jumper Short: Clear CMOS Open: Default
CLRCMOS1 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup, please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short the pins on CLRCMOS1 for 5 seconds. However, please do not clear the CMOS right after you update the BIOS. If you need to clear the CMOS when you just finish updating the BIOS, you must boot up the system first, and then shut it down before you do the clear-CMOS action. Please be noted that the password, date, time, and user default profile will be cleared only if the CMOS battery is removed. Please remember toremove the jumper cap after clearing the CMOS. E n g l i s h 30 Fatal1ty B450 Gaming-ITX/ac Series 2.6 Onboard Headers and Connectors Onboard headers and connectors are NOT jumpers. Do NOT place jumper caps over these headers and connectors. Placing jumper caps over the headers and connectors will cause permanent damage to the motherboard.
