Chipset Overview
Intel’s Mukilteo (E7230) chipset, designed for use with the Pentium 4 Processor
in the 90nm Process in the LGA 775 Land Grid Array Package, is comprised of
two primary components: the Memory Controller Hub (MCH) and the I/O Controller Hub (ICH7R). In addition, Intel's PCI-X (PXH-V) is used for added functionality.
The PDSMi provides the performance and feature-set required for the high-end
UP Server market.
Memory Controller Hub (MCH)
The function of the MCH is to manage the data flow between four interfaces: the
CPU interface, the DDRII System Memory Interface, thePCI Express Interface, and
the Direct Media Interface (DMI). The MCH is optimized for the Pentium 4 processor in the 90nm process in the LGA775 Land Grid Array Package. It supports one
or two channels of DDRII SDRAM.
The I/O Controller (ICH7R) provides the data buffering and interface arbitration
required for the system to operate efficiently. It also provides the bandwidth needed
for the system to maintain its peak performance. The Direct Media Interface (DMI)
provides the connection between the MCH and the ICH7R. The ICH7R supports
up to six PCI-Express slots, four Serial ATA ports, six USB 2.0 ports and two IDE
devices. In addition, the ICH7R offers the Intel Matrix Storage Technology which
provides various RAID options for data protection and rapid data access. It also
supports the next generation of client management through the use of PROActive
technology in conjunction with Intel's next generation Gigabit Ethernet controller.
Intel ICH7R System Features
The I/O Controller Hub provides the I/O subsystem with access to the rest of the
system. Functions and capabilities include:
*Advanced Configuration and Power Interface, Version 2.0 (ACPI)
*Intel I/O External Design Specification (EDS)
*Mukilteo (7230) Memory Controller Hub (MCH) External Design Specification
(EDS)
*Intel I/O Controller Hub 7 (ICH7) Thermal Design Guideline
*Intel 82573 Platform LAN Connect (PLC) PCI Design
*Low Pin Count (LPC) Interface

PDSMi User’s Manual
1-3 PC Health Monitoring
This section describes the PC health monitoring features of the PDSMi.
The
motherboard has an onboard System Hardware Monitor chip that supports PC
health monitoring.
Onboard Voltage Monitors for the CPU Cores, Chipset Voltage,
Memory Voltage , +3.3V, +5V, +5V Standby, +12V, and −12V (via
SuperO Doctor III)
The onboard voltage monitor will scan these voltages continuously. Once a voltage
becomes unstable, it will give a warning or send an error message to the screen.
Users can adjust the voltage thresholds to define the sensitivity of the voltage
monitor.
Fan Status Monitor with Firmware Speed Control
The PC health monitor can check the RPM status of the cooling fans. The onboard
fans are controlled by Thermal Management via BIOS.
CPU Overheat/Fan Fail LED and Control
This feature is available when the user enables the CPU overheat warning function
in the BIOS. This allows the user to define an overheat temperature. When this
temperature reaches the threshold, the CPU thermal trip feature will be activated
and it will send a signal to the Speaker LED and, at the same time, the CPU speed
will be decreased. It will also activate the alarm if a fan failure occurs.
1-4 Power Configuration Settings
This section describes features of your motherboard that deal with power and
power settings.
Slow Blinking LED for Suspend-State Indicator
When the CPU goes into a suspend state, the chassis power LED will start blinking
to indicate that the CPU is in suspend mode. When the user presses any key, the
CPU will wake-up and the LED will automatically stop blinking and remain on.
BIOS Support for USB Keyboard
If the USB keyboard is the only keyboard in the system, the keyboard will function
like a normal keyboard during system boot-up.
Main Switch Override Mechanism
When an ATX power supply is used, the power button can function as a system
suspend button. When the user presses the power button, the system will enter
a SoftOff state. The monitor will be suspended and the hard drive will spin down.
1-10
Chapter 1: Introduction
Pressing the power button again will cause the whole system to wake-up. During
the SoftOff state, the ATX power supply provides power to keep the required circuitry
in the system alive. In case the system malfunctions and you want to turn off the
power, just press and hold the power button for 4 seconds. The power will turn off
and no power will be provided to the motherboard.
Wake Ring-On (WOR)
Wake-up events can be triggered by a device such as the external modem ringing
when the system is in the SoftOff state. Note that external modem ring-on can only
be used with an ATX 2.01 (or above) compliant power supply.
Wake-On-LAN (WOL)
Wake-On-LAN is defined as the ability of a management application to remotely
power up a computer that is powered off. Remote PC setup, up-dates and asset
tracking can occur after hours and on weekends so that daily LAN traffic is kept to
a minimum and users are not interrupted. The motherboard has a 3-pin header
(WOL) to connect to the 3-pin header on a Network Interface Card (NIC) that has
WOL capability. In addition, an onboard LAN controller can also support WOL
without any connection to the WOL header. The 3-pin WOL header is to be used
with a LAN add-on card only. *Note: Wake-On-LAN requires an ATX 2.01 (or above)
compliant power supply.
1-5 ACPI Features
ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface. The ACPI specification defines a flexible and abstract hardware interface that provides a standard
way to integrate power management features throughout a PC system, including its
hardware, operating system and application software. This enables the system to
automatically turn on and off peripherals such as CD-ROMs, network cards, hard
disk drives and printers. This also includes consumer devices connected to the PC
such as VCRs, TVs, telephones and stereos.
In addition to enabling operating system-directed power management, ACPI
provides a generic system event mechanism for Plug and Play and an operating
system-independent interface for configuration control. ACPI leverages the Plug
and Play BIOS data structures while providing a processor architecture-independent implementation that is compatible with both Windows and Linux Operating
Systems.
1-6 Power Supply
As with all computer products, a stable power source is necessary for proper and
reliable operation. It is even more important for processors that have high CPU
clock rates of 1 GHz and faster.
1-11
PDSMi User’s Manual
The
PDSMi accommodates 12V ATX power supplies. Although most
power supplies generally meet the specifications required by the CPU, some are
inadequate. A 2 amps of current supply on a 5V Standby rail is strongly recommended.
The PDSMi accommodates ATX power supplies. It is strongly recommended that
you use a high quality power supply that meets ATX power supply Specification 2.02
or above. You should use one that will supply at least 350W of power. Also your
power supply must supply 1.5A for the Ethernet ports. It must also be SSI compliant
(info at http://www.ssiforum.org/). Additionally, in areas where noisy power transmission is present, you may choose to install a line filter to shield the computer from
noise. It is recommended that you also install a power surge protector to help avoid
problems caused by power surges.

Electro-static Sensitive Devices
Electro-static Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to your system board, it is important to handle it very carefully. The following
measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from ESD.
Precautions
•
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
•
Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic
bag.
•
Handle the board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral
chips, memory modules or gold contacts.
•
When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
•
Put the motherboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in
use.
•
For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent
conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and
the motherboard.
•
Use only the correct type of onboard CMOS battery. Do not install the onboard
upside down battery to avoid possible explosion.
Unpacking
The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

Processor and Heatsink Fan Installation
!
When handling the processor package, avoid placing
direct pressure on the label area of the fan.
(*Notes: 1. Always connect the power cord last and always remove it before adding,
removing or changing any hardware components. Make sure that you install the
processor into the CPU socket before you install the CPU heatsink.
2. Intel's boxed Pentium 4 CPU package contains the CPU fan and heatsink assembly. If you buy a CPU separately, make sure that you use only Intel-certified
multi-directional heatsink and fan.
3. The Intel Pentium 4 LGA 775 heatsink and fan comes with a push-pin design
and no tool is needed for installation.
4. Make sure to install the motherboard into the chassis before you install the CPU
heatsink and fan.)
5. When purchasing an LGA 775 CPU or when receiving a motherboard with an LGA
775 CPU pre-installed, make sure that the CPU plastic cap is in place and none of
the CPU pins are bent; otherwise, contact the retailer immediately.
6. Refer to the MB Features Section for more details on CPU support.

not drop the CPU on the socket. Do not
move the CPU horizontally or vertically.
South Center Edge
Do not rub the CPU against the surface
or against any pins of the socket to avoid
damage to the CPU or the socket.)
7. With the CPU inside the socket, inspect
the four corners of the CPU to make sure
that the CPU is properly installed.
8. Use your thumb to gently push the
Socket Lever
lever down and lock it in the hook.
9. If the CPU is properly installed into the
socket, the plastic cap will be automatically released from the load plate when the
lever is pushed into the hook. Remove
the plastic cap from the motherboard.
!
(*Warning: Please keep the plastic
cap. The motherboard and the CPU
must be shipped with the plastic cap
properly installed to protect the CPU pins.
Shipment without the CPU plastic cap
properly installed will void the warranty.)
Plastic cap is released

Mounting the Motherboard in the Chassis
All motherboards have standard mounting holes to fit different types of chassis.
Make sure that the locations of all the mounting holes for both the motherboard and
the chassis match. Although a chassis may have both plastic and metal mounting
fasteners, metal ones are highly recommended because they ground the motherboard to the chassis. Make sure that the metal standoffs click in or are screwed in
tightly. Then use a screwdriver to secure the motherboard onto the motherboard
tray. (*Note: some components are very close to the mounting holes. Please take
all necessary precautionary measures to prevent damage done to these components when installing the motherboard into the chassis.)
Caution: To avoid damaging the motherboard and its components, please
do not use a force greater than 8 lb/inch on each mounting screw during
motherboard installation.

Installing DDR 2 Memory
Memory Module Installation (See Figure 2-2)
Exercise extreme care when installing or removing memory modules
to prevent any possible damage.
Support
The PDSMi supports Dual channel, ECC unbuffered DDR 2 667/533/400
SDRAM. Both interleaved and non-interleaved memory are supported, so you
may populate any number of DIMM slots. (Populating DIMM#1A,DIMM#1B,
and/or DIMM#2A, DIMM#2B with memory modules of the same size and of
the same type will result in dual channel, two-way interleaved memory which
is faster than the single channel, non-interleaved memory. When ECC memory
is used, it may take 25-40 seconds for the VGA to display.)
*Notes:
1. Due to chipset limitation, 8GB Memory can only be supported by the following
operating systems: 32-Bit: Windows 2000 Advanced Server/2003 Enterprise;
64-Bit: Windows Server 2003 Standard/Enterprise/Windows XP Professional
x64 Edition.
2. You may install a maximum of 2GB DIMMs on each slot; however, only DDR 2
533 MHz 2GB density modules are available for this configuration.
3. Some old-version of DDR 2-667 may not match Intel's On-Die-Tempeature requirement and will automatically be down-graded to run @ 533 MHz, If this
occurs, contact your memory vendor to check the ODT value.
4. Due to memory allocation to system devices, memory remaining available for
operational use will be reduced when 4 GB of RAM is used. The reduction in
memory availability is disproportional. (Refer to the Memory Availability Table
below for details.

Jumper Settings
Explanation of
Jumpers
To modify the operation of the
motherboard, jumpers can be used
to choose between optional settings.
Jumpers create shorts between two
pins to change the function of the
connector. Pin 1 is identified with
a square solder pad on the printed
circuit board. See the motherboard
layout pages for jumper locations.
Note: On two pin jumpers, "Closed"
means the jumper is on and "Open"
means the jumper is off the pins.

CMOS Clear
JBT1 is used to clear CMOS.
Instead
of pins, this "jumper" consists of contact
pads to prevent the accidental clearing of
CMOS. To clear CMOS, use a metal object
such as a small screwdriver to touch both
pads at the same time to short the connection. Always remove the AC power cord
from the system before clearing CMOS.
Note: For an ATX power supply, you must
completely shut down the system, remove
the AC power cord and then short JBT1
to clear CMOS. Do not use the PW_ON
connector to clear CMOS.

Troubleshooting Procedures
Use the following procedures to troubleshoot your system. If you have followed all
of the procedures below and still need assistance, refer to the ‘Technical Support
Procedures’ and/or ‘Returning Merchandise for Service’ section(s) in this chapter.
Always disconnect the AC power cord before adding, changing or installing any
hardware components.
Before Power On
1. Check that the Standby PWR LED (LE1) is not lit. (*Note: If LE1 is on, it indicates
that Standby PWR is on. Be sure to turn off the power supply before installing
or removing the components.)
2. Make sure that the 8-pin 12v power connector at JPW2 is connected.
3. Make sure that there no short circuits between the motherboard and chassis.
4. Disconnect all ribbon/wire cables from the motherboard, including those for the
keyboard and mouse.
5. Remove all add-on cards.
6. Install a CPU and heatsink (Be sure that it is fully seated,) and then, connect the
chassis speaker and the power LED to the motherboard. Check all jumper
settings as well.
7. Make sure to use the correct type of CMOS battery as specified by the Manufacturer. Do not install the CMOS battery upside down to avoid possible
explosion.
No Power
1. Make sure that there no short circuits between the motherboard and chassis.
2. Make sure that all jumpers are set to their default positions.
3. Check if the 115V/230V switch on the power supply is properly set.
4. Turn the power switch on and off to test the system.
5. The battery on your motherboard may be old. Check to verify that it still supplies
~3VDC. If it does not, replace it with a new one.
No Video
1. If the power is on, but you have no video--in this case, you will need to remove
all the add-on cards and cables first.
2. Use the speaker to determine if any beep codes exist. (Refer to Appendix A for
details on beep codes.)
3. Remove all memory modules and turn on the system. (If the alarm is on, check
the specs of the memory, reset the memory or try a different one.)
3-1
PDSMi User's Manual
NOTE
If you are a system integrator, VAR or OEM, a POST diagnostics
card is recommended. For I/O port 80h codes, refer to App. B.
Memory Errors
1. Make sure that the DIMM modules are properly installed and fully seated in the
slots.
2. You should be using unbuffered, ECC DDR 2-677/533/400 memory (see the next
page). Also, it is recommended that you use the same memory speed for all
DIMMs in the system. See Section 2-4 for memory limitations.
3. Check for bad DIMM modules or slots by swapping modules between slots and
noting the results.
4. Check the power supply voltage 115V/230V switch.
Losing the System’s Setup Configuration
1. Please be sure to use a high quality power supply. A poor quality power supply
may cause the system to lose the CMOS setup information. Refer to Section
1-6 for details on recommended power supplies.
2. The battery on your motherboard may be old. Check to verify that it still supplies
~3VDC. If it does not, replace it with a new one.
3. If the above steps do not fix the Setup Configuration problem, contact your
vendor for repairs.
3-2

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What type of memory does my motherboard support?
Answer: The PDSMi supports up to 8 GB of unbuffered, ECC, DDR2-677/533/400,
two-way interleaved or non-interleaved SDRAM. See Section 2-4 for details on
installing memory.
Question: Why does Microsoft Windows XP (SP2) and Windows Vista show
less memory than what is physically installed?
Answer: Microsoft implemented a design change in Windows XP with Service
Pack 2 (SP2) and Windows Vista. This change is specific to the Physical Address
Extension (PAE) mode behavior which improves driver compatibility. For more information, please read the following article at Microsoft’s Knowledge Base website
at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888137.
Question: How do I update my BIOS?
Answer: It is recommended that you do not upgrade your BIOS if you are not
experiencing any problems with your system. Updated BIOS files are located on
our web site at http://www.supermicro.com/support/bios/. Please check our BIOS
warning message and the information on how to update your BIOS on our web
site. Select your motherboard model and download the BIOS file to your computer.
Also, check the current BIOS revision and make sure that it is newer than your
BIOS before downloading. You can choose from the zip file and the .exe file. If
you choose the zip BIOS file, please unzip the BIOS file onto a bootable device or
a USB pen. Run the batch file using the format flash.bat filename.rom from your
bootable device or USB pen to flash the BIOS. Then, your system will automati-
3-3
PDSMi User's Manual
cally reboot. If you choose the .exe file, please run the .exe file under Windows to
create the BIOS flash floppy disk. Insert the floppy disk into the system you wish
to flash the BIOS. Then, bootup the system to the floppy disk. The BIOS utility will
automatically flash the BIOS without any prompts. Please note that this process
may take a few minutes to complete. Do not be concerned if the screen is paused
for a few minutes.
Warning: Do not shut down or reset the system while updating BIOS to
prevent possible system boot failure!
Question: What's on the CD that came with my motherboard?
Answer: The supplied compact disc has quite a few drivers and programs that will
greatly enhance your system. We recommend that you review the CD and install
the applications you need. Applications on the CD include chipset drivers for Windows, security and audio drivers.
Question: How do I connect the ATA100/66 cable to my IDE device(s)?
Answer: The 80-wire/40-pin high-density ATA100/66 IDE cable that came with
your system has two connectors to support two drives. This special cable must be
used to take advantage of the speed the ATA100/66 technology offers. Connect
the blue connector to the onboard IDE header and the other connector(s) to
your hard drive(s). Consult the documentation that came with your disk drive for
details on actual jumper locations and settings.

BIOS
4-1 Introduction
This chapter describes the Phoenix BIOS™ Setup utility for the PDSMi.
The
Phoenix ROM BIOS is stored in a flash chip and can be easily upgraded using a
floppy disk-based program.
Note: Due to periodic changes to the BIOS, some settings may have been added or
deleted and might not yet be recorded in this manual. Please refer to the Manual
Download area of the Supermicro web site <http://www.supermicro.com> for any
changes to the BIOS that may not be reflected in this manual.
Warning: Do not shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS
to prevent possible boot failure.
System BIOS
The BIOS is the Basic Input Output System used in all IBM® PC, XT™, AT®, and
PS/2® compatible computers. The Phoenix BIOS flash chip stores the system
parameters, types of disk drives, video displays, etc. in the CMOS. The CMOS
memory requires very little electrical power. When the computer is turned off, a
backup battery provides power to the BIOS flash chip, enabling it to retain system
parameters. When the computer is powered on, the computer is configured with
the values stored in the BIOS ROM by the system BIOS, which gains control at
boot-up.
How To Change the Configuration Data
The CMOS information that determines the system parameters may be changed by
entering the BIOS Setup utility. This Setup utility can be accessed by pressing the
<Delete> key at the appropriate time during system boot. (See below.)
Starting the Setup Utility
Normally, the only visible POST (Power On Self Test) routine is the memory test. As
the memory is being tested, press the <Delete> key to enter the main menu of the
BIOS Setup utility. From the main menu, you can access the other setup screens,
such as the Security and Power menus. Beginning with Section 4-3, detailed descriptions are given for each parameter setting in the Setup utility.

uHardware Monitoring
CPU Temperature Threshold
This option allows the user to set a CPU temperature threshold that will activate
the alarm system when the CPU temperature reaches this pre-set temperature
threshold. The options depend on what type of processor is installed. For Intel
Core™ 2 Duo processors, the values are 55oC, 60oC, 65oC and 70oC. For Intel
Pentium® D processors, they are 75oC, 80oC, 85oC and 90oC. (*See the note below
for other information regarding this feature.)
Highlight this and hit <Enter> to see the data for the following items:
CPU Temperature
This displays the currect CPU temperature as detected.
System Temperature
This displays the current system temperature as detected.
Fan 1 Speed - FAN 6 Speed: If the feature of Auto Fan Control is enabled, the
BIOS will automatically display the status of the fans indicated in this item.
Fan Speed Control Modes
This feature allows the user to decide how the system controls the speeds of the
onboard fans. The CPU temperature and the fan speed are correlative. When the
CPU on-die temperature increases, the fan speed will also increase, and vice versa.
If the option is set to "3-pin fan," the fan speed is controlled by voltage. If the
option is set to "4-pin," the fan speed will be controlled by Pulse Width Modulation
(PWM). Select “3-pin” if your chassis came with 3-pin fan headers. Select “4-pin” if
your chassis came with 4-pin fan headers.
Select “Workstation” if your system is
used as a Workstation. Select “Server” if your system is used as a Server. Select
“Disable” to disable the fan speed control function to allow the onboard fans to
constantly run at full speed (12V). The Options are: 1. Full Speed at 12V (Disabled)
2. Optimized (for) Server with 3-pin, 3. Optimized (for) Workstation with 3-pin, 4.
Optimized (for) Server with 4-pin, 5. Optimized (for) Workstation with 4-pin.
The Voltage status of the following items will be displayed:
Vcore, 1.5V, -12V, Vdimm, +3.3V, +12V, 5Vsb, 5VDD, P_VTT, Vbat
Note: In the Windows OS environment, the Supero Doctor III settings take precedence over the BIOS settings. When first installed, Supero Doctor III adopts the
temperature threshold settings previously set in the BIOS. Any subsequent changes
to these thresholds must be made within Supero Doctor, since the SD III settings
override the BIOS settings. For the Windows OS to adopt the BIOS temperature
threshold settings, please change the SDIII settings to be the same as those set
in the BIOS.

* If the BIOS detects errors on 2C, 2E, or 30 (base 512K RAM error), it displays an
additional word-bitmap (xxxx) indicating the address line or bits that have failed. For
example, “2C 0002” means address line 1 (bit one set) has failed. “2E 1020" means
data bits 12 and 5 (bits 12 and 5 set) have failed in the lower 16 bits. The BIOS also
sends the bitmap to the port-80 LED display. It first displays the checkpoint code,
followed by a delay, the high-order byte, another delay, and then the loworder byte of
the error. It repeats this sequence continuously.

Appendix C: Software Installation
Appendix C
Software Installation
After all the hardware has been installed, you must first configure Intel's ICH7R
SATA RAID* before you install the Windows Operating System and other software
drivers.
Important Notes to the User:
*Note 1: If you do not wish to configure onboard SATA RAID functions, please go
directly to Section C-4 for Operating System & Other Software Installation.
*Note 2: This chapter describes RAID Configuration Instructions for the Intel ICH
RAID Controller designed for the Windows OS. If you choose to use the Linux
OS, please enable Adaptec's RAID Controller in the BIOS and refer to the file:
"E7230 Note.txt" in the folder: "Intel E7230" saved in the CD that came with your
motherboard for Adaptec RAID Configuration Instructions.
C-1 Introduction to Serial ATA and Parallel ATA
To configure the SATA RAID functions, you must first use the Intel ICH7R SATA
RAID Utility program to configure the RAID Level that you desire before installing
the Windows XP/2000/2003 operating system and other software drivers. (The
necessary drivers are all included on the Supermicro CD that came packaged with
your motherboard.) Note that the current version of the ICH7R SATA RAID Utility
can only support the Windows XP/2000/2003 Operating Systems.
Serial ATA (SATA)
Serial ATA (SATA) is a physical storage interface that uses a single cable with a
minimum of four wires to create a point-to-point connection between devices. It is
a serial link, which supports transfer rates up to 3Gbps. Because the serial cables
used in SATA are thinner than the traditional cables used in Parallel ATA (PATA),
SATA systems have better airflow and can be installed in smaller chassis than
Parallel ATA. In addition, the cables used in PATA are limited to a length of 40cm,
while Serial ATA cables can be up to one meter in length. Overall, SATA provides
better functionality than PATA.
Introduction to Intel ICH7R Serial RAID
Located in the South Bridge of the E7230 Mukilteo chipset, the I/O Controller Hub
(ICH7R) provides the I/O subsystem with access to the rest of the system. It supports a 2-channel UltraATA/100 Bus Master IDE controller (PATA) and four Serial
ATA (SATA) ports. The ICH7R supports the following PATA and SATA device configurations: Legacy mode and Native mode.
C-1
PDSMi User's Manual
RAID Configurations
The following types of RAID configurations are supported:
RAID 0 (Data Striping): this writes data in parallel, interleaved ("striped") sections
of two hard drives. Data transfer rate is doubled over using a single disk.
RAID1 (Data Mirroring): an identical data image from one drive is copied to another
drive. The second drive must be the same size or larger than the first drive.
RAID 10 (Striping & Mirroring): RAID 0 and 1 schemes are combined (without parity
information) to get the benefits of both.
RAID 5: both data and parity information are striped and mirrored across three or
more hard drives.
Intel Matrix Storage
The Intel Matrix Storage, supported by the ICH7R, allows the user to create
RAID 0 and RAID1 set by using only two identical hard disk drives. The Intel
Matrix Storage Technology creates two partitions on each hard disk drive and
generate a virtual RAID0 and RAID1sets. It also allows you the change the HDD
partition size without any data.
Configuring BIOS settings for SATA RAID Functions (Native Mode)
1. Press the <Del> key during system bootup to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.
Note: If it is the first time powering on the system, we recommend you load the

Supero Doctor III
The Supero Doctor III program is a Web-base management tool that supports
remote management capability. It includes Remote and Local Management tools.
The local management is called the SD III Client. The Supero Doctor III program
included on the CDROM that came with your motherboard allows you to monitor
the environment and operations of your system. Supero Doctor III displays crucial
system information such as CPU temperature, system voltages and fan status. See
the Figure below for a display of the Supero Doctor III interface.
*Note 1: The default Username and Password are ADMIN.
*Note 2: In the Windows OS environment, the Supero Doctor III settings take precedence over the BIOS settings. When first installed, Supero Doctor III adopts the
temperature threshold settings previously set in the BIOS. Any subsequent changes
to these thresholds must be made within Supero Doctor, since the SD III settings
override the BIOS settings. For the Windows OS to adopt the BIOS temperature
threshold settings, please change the SDIII settings to be the same as those set
in the BIOS.
