Chapter 1: Product introduction
DDR3 memory support
The KGN(M)H-D16 supports UDIMM and RDIMM DDR3 memory that features
data transfer rates of 1333/1066 MHZ to meet the higher bandwidth requirements
of server and workstation applications. The 4-channel DDR3 architecture boosts
system performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidth of up to 32GB/s.
Furthermore, the supply voltage for the memory is reduced form 1.8 V for DDR2
to just 1.5V, 1.35V, and 1.2V for DDR3. This voltage reduction limits the power
consumption and heat generation of DDR3 which makes it an ideal memory
solution.
PCIe 2.0
This motherboard supports the latest PCIe 2.0 device for twice the current speed
and bandwidth. This enhances system performance while still providing backward
compatibility to PCIe 1.0 devices.
82574L LAN solution
The motherboard comes with dual Gigabit LAN controllers and ports which provide
a total solution for your networking needs. The onboard Intel 82574L Gigabit LAN
controllers use the PCI Express interface and could achieve network throughput
close to Gigabit bandwidth.
Serial ATA II technology
The motherboard supports the Serial ATA II 3 Gb/s technology through the
Serial ATA interface and AMD SP5100 chipset. The Serial ATA II specification
provides twice the bandwidth of the current Serial ATA products with a host of new
features, including Native Command Queuing (NCQ), Power Management (PM)
Implementation Algorithm, and Hot Swap. Serial ATA allows thinner, more flexible
cables with lower pin count and reduced voltage requirements.
USB 2.0 technology
The motherboard implements the Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 specification,
dramatically increasing the connection speed from the 12 Mbps bandwidth on USB
1.1 to a fast 480 Mbps on USB 2.0. USB 2.0 is backward compatible with USB 1.1.
Temperature, fan, and voltage monitoring
The CPU temperature is monitored to prevent overheating and damage. The
system fan rotations per minute (RPM) is monitored for timely failure detection.
The chip monitors the voltage levels to ensure stable supply of current for critical
components.

Before you proceed
Take note of the following precautions before you install motherboard components or change
any motherboard settings.
•
Unplug the power cord from the wall socket before touching any
component.
•
Use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safely grounded object or a metal
object, such as the power supply case, before handling components to
avoid damaging them due to static electricity.
•
Hold components by the edges to avoid touching the ICs on them.
•
Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded antistatic
pad or in the bag that came with the component.
•
Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the power supply
is switched off or the power cord is detached from the power supply. Failure
to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard, peripherals, and/or
components.

Jumpers
Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC1)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS.
You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters
by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery
powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such
as system passwords.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1–2 (default) to pins 2–3. Keep the cap
on pins 2–3 for about 5–10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1–2.
3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup
to re-enter data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware chip that you can update
using the provided utility described in section 4.1 Managing and updating your
BIOS.
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring
your system, or prompted to “Run Setup.” This section explains how to configure
your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you can change the
configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you can enable the
security password feature or change the power management settings. This
requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup program so that the
computer can recognize these changes and record them in the CMOS RAM of the
firmware chip.
The firmware chip on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start up
the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program.
Press <Del> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility;
otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing
<Ctrl+Alt+Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can
also restart by turning the system off and then back on. Do this last option only if
the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being a
menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus and make
your selections from the available options using the navigation keys.
•
The default BIOS settings for this motherboard apply for most conditions
to ensure optimum performance. If the system becomes unstable after
changing any BIOS settings, load the default settings to ensure system
compatibility and stability. Select the Load Setup Defaults item under the
Exit Menu. See section 4.9 Exit Menu.
•
The BIOS setup screens shown in this section are for reference purposes
only, and may not exactly match what you see on your screen.
•
Visit the ASUS website at www.asus.com to download the latest BIOS file
for this motherboard.

5.1
Setting up RAID
5.1.1
RAID definitions
RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and write
data in parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same work as a
single drive but at a sustained data transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone,
thus improving data access and storage. Use of two new identical hard disk drives
is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one
drive to a second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management software
directs all applications to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of
the data in the other drive. This RAID configuration provides data protection and
increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use two new drives or use an
existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new drive must be of the same
size or larger than the existing drive.
RAID 10 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity (redundancy
data) having to be calculated and written. With the RAID 10 configuration you get
all the benefits of both RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations. Use four new hard disk
drives or use an existing drive and three new drives for this setup.
RAID 5 stripes both data and parity information across three or more hard disk
drives. Among the advantages of RAID 5 configuration include better HDD
performance, fault tolerance, and higher storage capacity. The RAID 5 configuration
is best suited for transaction processing, relational database applications,
enterprise resource planning, and other business systems. Use a minimum of three
identical hard disk drives for this setup.
JBOD (Spanning) stands for Just a Bunch of Disks and refers to hard disk drives
that are not yet configured as a RAID set. This configuration stores the same data
redundantly on multiple disks that appear as a single disk on the operating system.
Spanning does not deliver any advantage over using separate disks independently
and does not provide fault tolerance or other RAID performance benefits.
SPAN helps to combine the capacity of multiple physical disk drives into one single
large drive volume, making the small-sized disk drives more useful. The disk drives
in this mode need not to be identical in size or speed.
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a created RAID
set, copy first the RAID driver from the support CD to a floppy disk before you
install an operating system to the selected hard disk drive.

5.1.2
Installing hard disk drives
The motherboard supports Serial ATA for RAID set configuration. For optimal
performance, install identical drives of the same model and capacity when creating
a disk array.
To install the SATA hard disks for RAID configuration:
1.
2.
3.
Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays following the instructions in the
system user guide.
Connect a SATA signal cable to the signal connector at the back of each drive
and to the SATA connector on the motherboard.
Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive.
5.1.3
Setting the RAID item in BIOS
You must set the RAID item in the BIOS Setup before you can create a RAID set
from SATA hard disk drives attached to the SATA connectors supported by
AMD SP5100 chipset. To do this:
1.
Enter the BIOS Setup during POST.
3.
Set SATA Port1-4 to [RAID] and SATA Port5-6 will be set to [RAID] too.
2.
4.
Go to the Main Menu > Storage Configuration, then press <Enter>.
Press <F10> to save your changes and exit the BIOS Setup.
Refer to Chapter 4 for details on entering and navigating through the BIOS
Setup.

.1 RAID driver installation
After creating the RAID sets for your server system, you are now ready to install
an operating system to the independent hard disk drive or bootable array. This
part provides instructions on how to install the RAID controller drivers during OS
installation.
The RAID card driver might be included in the Linux OS installation CD,
and could be loaded automatically during the OS installation. However, we
recommend you use the RAID driver packaged in the RAID card support CD for
a better reliability.
6.1.1
Creating a RAID driver disk
The system does not include a floppy drive. You have to use a USB floppy drive
when creating a SATA RAID driver disk.
When you use a SATA optical drive and PROMISE RAID, you cannot boot into
FreeDOS using this support CD. Either reset SATA Port1-4 in BIOS to [IDE]
and boot again or create the RAID driver in another computer.
A floppy disk with the RAID driver is required when installing Windows® or
Red Hat® Enterprise operating system on a hard disk drive that is included in
a RAID set. You can create a RAID driver disk in DOS (using the Makedisk
application in the support DVD).
To create a RAID driver disk in DOS environment
1.
Place the motherboard support DVD in the optical drive.
3.
Select the optical drive as the first boot priority to boot from the support DVD.
Save your changes, and then exit the BIOS Setup.
2.
4.
Restart the computer, and then enter the BIOS Setup.
Restart the computer. The Makedisk menu appears.
