IMPORTANT! Before touching any components make sure you use an anti-static wrist strap to prevent electrostatic discharge.

  1. Disconnect the power and all other peripherals.

  2. Insert the graphics card in slot 20.

  3. Insert the BlueFish444 video board in slot 22.

    Note: If you are using the BNC adapter with the Epoch|2K Horizon board it can be placed directly adjacent the video board on either side.

  4. Tidy up all cables and close the computer’s casing.

  1. Disconnect the power and all other peripherals.

  2. Insert the graphics card in slot 20.

  3. Insert the Matrox video board in slot 22.

  4. Insert the radial-aerator in slot 23.

    IMPORTANT! A radial-aerator is mandatory as the video board reaches high temperatures during operation.

  5. Optional: Insert the Matrox video board in slot 19.

  6. Tidy up all cables and close the computer’s casing.

  7. Start the machine.

Once the machine is powered up, check that the Matrox X.mio board has been correctly installed. Check that the blue OB-light on the (top) backside of the slot panel is set to ON. If the LED is ON the board is correctly supplied with power.
