Product Warranty (2 years)
Advantech warrants to you, the original purchaser, that each of its products will be
free from defects in materials and workmanship for two years from the date of purchase.
This warranty does not apply to any products which have been repaired or altered by
persons other than repair personnel authorized by Advantech, or which have been
subject to misuse, abuse, accident or improper installation. Advantech assumes no
liability under the terms of this warranty as a consequence of such events.
Because of Advantech’s high quality-control standards and rigorous testing, most of
our customers never need to use our repair service. If an Advantech product is defective, it will be repaired or replaced at no charge during the warranty period. For outof-warranty repairs, you will be billed according to the cost of replacement materials,
service time and freight. Please consult your dealer for more details.
If you think you have a defective product, follow these steps:
1. Collect all the information about the problem encountered. (For example, CPU
speed, Advantech products used, other hardware and software used, etc.) Note
anything abnormal and list any onscreen messages you get when the problem
occurs.
2. Call your dealer and describe the problem. Please have your manual, product,
and any helpful information readily available.
3. If your product is diagnosed as defective, obtain an RMA (return merchandise
authorization) number from your dealer. This allows us to process your return
more quickly.
4. Carefully pack the defective product, a fully-completed Repair and Replacement
Order Card and a photocopy proof of purchase date (such as your sales receipt)
in a shippable container. A product returned without proof of the purchase date
is not eligible for warranty service.
5. Write the RMA number visibly on the outside of the package and ship it prepaid
to your dealer.

1.8 Jumper Settings
This section provides instructions on how to configure your motherboard by setting
the jumpers. It also includes the motherboards's default settings and your options for
each jumper.
1.8.1 How to set jumpers
You can configure your motherboard to match the needs of your application by setting the jumpers. A jumper is a metal bridge that closes an electrical circuit. It consists
of two metal pins and a small metal clip (often protected by a plastic cover) that slides
over the pins to connect them. To “close” (or turn ON) a jumper, you connect the pins
with the clip. To “open” (or turn OFF) a jumper, you remove the clip. Sometimes a
jumper consists of a set of three pins, labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case you connect
either pins 1 and 2, or 2 and 3. A pair of needle-nose pliers may be useful when setting jumpers.
1.8.2 CMOS clear (CMOS1)
The AIMB-580 motherboard contains a jumper that can erase CMOS data and reset
the system BIOS information. Normally this jumper should be set with pins 1-2
closed. If you want to reset the CMOS data, set J1 to 2-3 closed for just a few seconds, and then move the jumper back to 1-2 closed. This procedure will reset the
CMOS to its default setting.

1.9 System Memory
The AIMB-580 has four sockets for 240-pin DDR3.
All these sockets use 1.8V unbuffered double data rate synchronous DRAMs (DDR3
SDRAM). They are available in capacities of 1024 MB. The sockets can be filled in
any combination with DIMMs of any size, giving a total memory size between 1 GB
and 4 GB. AIMB-580 with Q57 PCH does not support ECC, with 3450 PCH support
ECC (error checking and correction).
AIMB-580 User Manual
10
In all modes, the frequency of system memory is the lowest frequency of all memory
modules placed in the system, as determined through the SPD registers on the memory modules. The system memory controller supports one or two DIMM connectors
per channel. For dual-channel modes both channels must have at least one DIMM
connector populated and for single-channel mode only a single-channel may have
one or both DIMM connectors populated.
DIMMA1 must always be populated within any memory configuration.
DIMMA1 is the furthest DIMM within a channel and is identified by the
CS#[1:0], ODT[1:0], and CKE[1:0] signals.
1.11 Memory Installation Procedures
To install SDRAM, first make sure the two handles of the socket are in the “open”
position. i.e. The handles lean outward. Slowly slide the module along the plastic
guides on both ends of the socket. Then press the module right down into the socket,
until you hear a click. This is when the two handles have automatically locked the
memory module into the correct position of the socket. To remove the memory module, just push both handles outward, and the memory module will be ejected by the
mechanism in the socket.
1.12 Cache Memory
The AIMB-580 supports a CPU with one of the following built-in full speed L2 caches:
„ 8 MB for Intel Core i7 CPU
„ 8 MB for Intel Core i5-700 CPU
„ 4 MB for Intel Core i5-600 CPU
„ 4 MB for Intel Core i3 CPU
„ 3 MB for Intel Pentium CPU
The built-in second-level cache in the processor yields much higher performance
than conventional external cache memories.
1.13 Processor Installation
The AIMB-580 is designed for LGA1156, Intel Core i7/Core i5/Core i3/Pentium

3.1 Introduction
AMI BIOS has been integrated into many motherboards, and has been very popular
for over a decade. People sometimes refer to the AMI BIOS setup menu as BIOS,
BIOS setup or CMOS setup.
With the AMI BIOS Setup program, you can modify BIOS settings and control the
special features of your computer. The Setup program uses a number of menus for
making changes and turning special features on or off. This chapter describes the
basic navigation of the AIMB-580 setup screens.
3.2 BIOS Setup
The AIMB-580 Series system has build-in AMI BIOS with a CMOS SETUP utility
which allows user to configure required settings or to activate certain system features.
The CMOS SETUP saves the configuration in the CMOS RAM of the motherboard.
When the power is turned off, the battery on the board supplies the necessary power
to the CMOS RAM.
When the power is turned on, press the <Del> button during the BIOS POST (PowerOn Self Test) will take you to the CMOS SETUP screen.

A.1 Programming the Watchdog Timer
The AIMB-580's watchdog timer can be used to monitor system software operation
and take corrective action if the software fails to function within the programmed
period. This section describes the operation of the watchdog timer and how to program it.
A.1.1 Watchdog timer overview
The watchdog timer is built into the super I/O controller W83627DHG-P. It provides
the following user-programmable functions:
„ Can be enabled and disabled by user program
„ Timer can be set from 1 to 255 seconds or 1 to 255 minutes
„ Generates an interrupt or resets signal if the software fails to reset the timer
before time-out
A.1.2 Programming the Watchdog Timer
The I/O port address of the watchdog timer is 2E (hex) and 2F (hex). 2E (hex) is the
address port. 2F (hex) is the data port. You must first assign the address of register
by writing an address value into address port 2E (hex), then write/read data to/from
the assigned register through data port 2F (hex).
