topics covered in this section are:

Preparing the motherboard

Installing the CPUs

Installing the CPU fans


Safety Instructions
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury, always follow basic
safety precautions.
Remember to remove power from your computer by disconnecting the
AC main source before removing or installing any equipment from/to the
computer chassis.
10
EVGA Classified SR-X Motherboard
Preparing the Motherboard
Installing the CPU
Be very careful when handling the CPU. Hold the
processor only by the edges and do not touch the bottom
of the processor.
Use the following procedure to install the CPU onto the
motherboard.
Please ensure that with single processor usage you are using
CPU socket 0 and the adjacent ram slots.

Unhook the left socket lever by pushing down
and away from the socket.

Unhook the right socket lever by pushing down
and away from the socket.

Gently press the left socket lever and the load
plate will lift from the socket.

Open the load plate and make sure not to damage
any of the pins inside of the socket.
Note:
After removing the CPU socket cover, it is recommended to store it in
case you ever need to transport your motherboard. If you ever remove the
CPU, it is highly recommended to reinstall the socket cover.
11
EVGA Classified SR-X Motherboard

Align the notches on the CPU to the notches in
the socket.

Lower the processor straight down into the
socket.
Note:
Make sure the CPU is fully seated and level
in the socket.

Lower the load plate so it is resting on the CPU.

Press the right socket lever down to lock into
place.

Carefully lock the lever back into place.

Repeat this process for the secondary CPU.
12
EVGA Classified SR-X Motherboard
Installing the Cooling Device
There are many different cooling devices that can be used with this
motherboard. Follow the instructions that came with your cooling assembly.
Installing DIMMs
Your new motherboard has twelve (12) 240-pin slots for DDR3 DIMMs
(ECC or Non ECC). These slots support 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB DDR3
technology. There must be at least one DIMM slot populated in each red
bank to ensure normal operation. Use the following recommendations for
installing DIMMs.
Always start by populating the red slots first, it is recommended to mirror the
memory from CPU 0 to CPU 1. If only using CPU 0, do not use the slots for
CPU 1.
Note that there is only one gap near the center of the DIMM slot. This slot
matches the slot on the DIMM to ensure the component is installed properly.
1.
Unlock a DIMM slot by pressing the module clips outward.
13
EVGA Classified SR-X Motherboard
2.
Align the memory module to the DIMM slot, and insert the module
vertically into the DIMM slot. The plastic clips at both sides of the
DIMM slot automatically lock the DIMM into the connector.
Installing the Motherboard
The sequence of installing the motherboard into the chassis depends on the
chassis you are using and if you are replacing an existing motherboard or
working with an empty chassis. Determine if it would be easier to make all the
connections prior to this step or to secure the motherboard and then make all
the connections. It is normally easier to secure the motherboard first.
Use the following procedure to install the I/O shield and secure the
motherboard into the chassis.
Be sure that the CPU fan assembly has enough clearance for the chassis
covers to lock into place and for the expansion cards. Also make sure the
CPU Fan assembly is aligned with the vents on the covers.
Installing the I/O Shield
The motherboard kit comes with an I/O shield that is used to block radio
frequency transmissions, protects internal components from dust and foreign
objects, and promotes correct airflow within the chassis.
Before installing the motherboard, install the I/O shield from the inside of the
chassis. Press the I/O shield into place and make sure it fits securely. If the
I/O shield does not fit into the chassis, you would need to obtain the proper
size from the chassis supplier.
14
EVGA Classified SR-X Motherboard
Securing the Motherboard into the Chassis
Most computer chassis have a base with mounting studs or spacers to allow
the motherboard to be secured to the chassis and help to prevent short
circuits. If there are studs that do not align with a mounting hole on the
motherboard, it is recommended that you remove that stud to prevent the
possibility of a short circuit. In most cases, it is recommended to secure the
motherboard using a minimum of thirteen (13) spacers.
1.
Carefully place the motherboard onto the studs/spacers located inside the
chassis.
2.
Align the mounting holes with the studs/spacers.
3.
Align the connectors to the I/O shield.
4.
Ensure that the fan assembly is aligned with the chassis vents according
to the fan assembly instruction.
5.
Secure the motherboard with a minimum of thirteen screws.

PW12-P0-1, PW12-P1-1,
the 8-pin ATX 12V power connections, are used
to provide power to the CPU. Align the pins to the connectors and press
firmly until seated. You can plug in the extra 6 pin PCI-E power connectors
(optional) if you need them for extreme overclocking. It is not necessary or
required as the motherboard will function perfectly with just one connector in
each 8 pin socket.
Before installing these plugs be ensure that the 8-pin connector is an ATX 12V
differential output, and not a PCI-E power connector.

EVGA Classified SR-X Motherboard
Connecting Serial ATA Cables
The Serial ATA II connector is used to connect a Serial ATA II device to the
motherboard. These connectors support the thin Serial ATA II cables for
primary storage devices. The Serial ATA II interface allows up to 300MB/s
data transfer rate.
The two (2) Red ports are SATA 6Gbps spec and support transfer speeds of
up to 600MB/s. SATA II drives are compatible but will not see the enhanced
SATA 6Gbps performance.
There are six (6) internal Serial ATA connectors and two (2) E-SATA on this
motherboard. Connection points SATA0 – SATA1 are SATA 6GPS and are
controlled by the Intel® Chipset. SATA 2 – SATA 5 are SATA 3GPS and are
controller by the Intel® Chipset. Connection points ESATA 1 – ESATA 2 are
SATA 6Gbps spec and are controlled by the Marvell 9182 chipset. There are
also 2 SAS connectors that can break off into 8 SATA II connections.
