X9SBAA Motherboard Series Block Diagram
Note: This is a general block diagram. Please see the Motherboard Features pages
for details on the features of the motherboard.

Chapter 1: Introduction
1-2 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, it 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
Soft Off state. The monitor will be suspended and the hard drive will spin down.
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.
1-3 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.
The
X9SBAA Motherboard Series accommodates 12V ATX power supplies. Although most power supplies generally meet the specifications required by
the CPU, some are inadequate. A 2-Amp of current supply on a 5V Standby rail is
strongly recommended.

Installation
2-1 Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic-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.
2-1
X9SBAA Motherboard Series User's Manual
2-2 Motherboard Installation
All motherboards have standard mounting holes to fit different types of chassis.
Make sure that the locations of all the mounting holes for both motherboard and
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.
Caution: Some components are very close to the mounting holes. Please
take precautionary measures to prevent damage to these components
when installing the motherboard to the chassis.
Tools Needed
Philips Screwdriver
Stand Offs (4 pieces)
(Only if needed)
Note: The above items are not provided with this motherboard.
Pan head screws (4 pieces)
Location of Mounting Holes
There are four (4) mounting holes on the X9SBAA motherboard series.

2-6 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.
Note: On two pin jumpers, "Closed" means the jumper is on and "Open" means
the jumper is off the pins.

JBT1 is used to clear CMOS. Instead of pins,
this "jumper" consists of contact pads to prevent 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.

Troubleshooting
3-1 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. Be sure to unplug the power cable before installing or removing the components.)
2. Make sure that there are no short circuits between the motherboard and chassis.
3. Disconnect all ribbon/wire cables from the motherboard, including those for the
keyboard and mouse. Also, be sure to remove all add-on cards.
4. Connect the chassis speaker and the power LED to the motherboard. Check
all jumper settings as well.
No Power
1. Make sure that there are 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 make sure that it still
supplies ~3VDC. If it does not, replace it with a new one.
6. Make sure the memory module installed is an ECC SO-DIMM type.
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.
3-1
X9SBAA Motherboard Series User's Manual
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 memory modules, reset the memory or try a different one.)
Memory Errors
1. Make sure that the ECC SO-DIMM module is properly installed and fully seated
in the slot.
2. Please check Section 2-3 and make sure that you are using the correct memory.
Also, it is recommended that you use the memory modules of the same type
and speed for all DIMMs in the system.
3. Check the power supply voltage 115V/230V switch.
If You Lose 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
1-5 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 Technical Support Procedures
Before contacting Technical Support, please make sure that you have followed all
the steps listed below. Also, Note that as a motherboard manufacturer, Supermicro
does not sell directly to end users, so it is best to first check with your distributor or
reseller for troubleshooting services. They should know of any possible problem(s)
with the specific system configuration that was sold to you.
1. Please go through the ‘Troubleshooting Procedures’ and 'Frequently Asked
Question' (FAQ) sections in this chapter or see the FAQs on our website
(http://www.supermicro.com/support/faqs/) before contacting Technical
Support.
2. BIOS upgrades can be downloaded from our website at (http://www.supermicro.
com/support/bios/).
3-2
Chapter 3: Troubleshooting
Note: Not all BIOS can be flashed. Some cannot be flashed; it depends
on the modifications to the boot block code.
3. If you've followed the instructions above to troubleshoot your system, and
still cannot resolve the problem, then contact Supermicro's technical support and
provide them with the following information:
• Motherboard model and PCB revision number
• BIOS release date/version (this can be seen on
the initial display when your
system first boots up)
• System configuration (OS version, peripheral devices, power supply type, etc)
An example of a Technical Support form is on our website at (http://www.
supermicro.com/support/contact.cfm).
4. Distributors: For immediate assistance, please have your account number ready
when placing a call to our technical support department. We can be reached
by e-mail at support@supermicro.com, by phone at: (408) 503-8000, option
2, or by fax at (408)503-8019. 3-3 Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What type of memory does my motherboard support?
Answer:
The X9SBAA Motherboard Series supports up to 8GB of unbuffered ECC DDR3
1333 MHz SODIMM in a single low-profile horizontal slot. See Section 2-4 for
details on installing memory.
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 (.rom) file to
your computer. Also, check the current BIOS revision and make sure that it is
newer than your BIOS before downloading. You may choose the zip file or the
.exe file. If you choose the zipped BIOS file, please unzip the BIOS file onto a
bootable device or a USB pen/thumb drive. To flash the BIOS, run the batch
file named "ami.bat" with the new BIOS ROM file from your bootable device or
USB pen/thumb drive. Use the following format:
F:\> ami.bat BIOS-ROM-filename.xxx <Enter>
3-3
X9SBAA Motherboard Series User's Manual
Notes: Always use the file named “ami.bat” to update the BIOS and insert a
space between "ami.bat" and the filename. The BIOS-ROM-filename will bear
the motherboard name (i.e., X9SBAA) and build version as the extension. For
example, "X9SBAA0.526".
When completed, your system will automatically 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, boot
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 the BIOS to prevent possible system boot failure!
When the BIOS flashing screen is completed, the system will reboot and will
show “Press F1 or F2”. At this point, you will need to load the BIOS defaults.
Press <F1> to go to the BIOS setup screen, and press <F9> to load the default
settings. Next, press <F10> to save and exit. The system will then reboot.
Note: The SPI BIOS chip installed on this motherboard is not removable. To
repair or replace a damaged BIOS chip, please send your motherboard to RMA
at Supermicro for service.
If your BIOS crashes and your motherboard will no longer boot, please read
Appendix C - UEFI BIOS Recovery Instructions for instructions.
Question: Why does OS installation fail if the OS does not have USB 3.0
controller support
Answer: The latest version of Windows 8 and Red Hat Linux does support USB
3.0. However, some OS such as Windows 7 does not have USB 3.0 drivers
built into the OS image. Users need to deploy the USB 3.0 drivers into the OS
image manually for successful installation. The other work-around is to plug
in a PCI USB 2.0 card to connect the keyboard mouse and other peripherals
to the USB 2.0 ports first to install the Windows 7, then install the USB 3.0
drivers after OS deployment.

4-1Introduction
This chapter describes the AMI BIOS Setup Utility for the X9SBAA Motherboard
Series. The AMI ROM BIOS is stored in a Flash EEPROM and can be easily updated. This chapter describes the basic navigation of the AMI BIOS Setup Utility
setup screens.
Note: For instructions on BIOS recovery, please refer to the instruction
guide posted at http://www.supermicro.com/support/manuals/.
Starting BIOS Setup Utility
To enter the AMI BIOS Setup Utility screens, press the <Delete> key while the
system is booting up.
Note: In most cases, the <Delete> key is used to invoke the AMI BIOS
setup screen. There are a few cases when other keys are used, such as
<F1>, <F2>, etc.
Each main BIOS menu option is described in this manual. The Main BIOS setup
menu screen has two main frames. The left frame displays all the options that can
be configured. Grayed-out options cannot be configured. Options in blue can be
configured by the user. The right frame displays the key legend. Above the key
legend is an area reserved for a text message. When an option is selected in the
left frame, it is highlighted in white. Often a text message will accompany it. (Note:
the AMI BIOS has default text messages built in. Supermicro retains the option to
include, omit, or change any of these text messages.)
The AMI BIOS Setup Utility uses a key-based navigation system called "hot keys".
Most of the AMI BIOS setup utility "hot keys" can be used at any time during the
setup navigation process. These keys include <F1>, <F10>, <Enter>, <ESC>, arrow keys, etc.
Note: Options printed in Bold are default settings.
How To Change the Configuration Data
The configuration data that determines the system parameters may be changed by
entering the AMI BIOS Setup utility. This Setup utility can be accessed by pressing
<Del> at the appropriate time during system boot.

the AMI BIOS Setup Utility. From the main menu, you can access the other setup
screens. An AMI BIOS identification string is displayed at the left bottom corner of
the screen, below the copyright message.
Warning! Do not upgrade the BIOS unless your system has a BIOS-related
issue. Flashing the wrong BIOS can cause irreparable damage to the
system. In no event shall Supermicro be liable for direct, indirect, special,
incidental, or consequential damages arising from a BIOS update. If you
have to update the BIOS, do not shut down or reset the system while the
BIOS is updating. This is to avoid possible boot failure.

B-1 Installing Software Programs
The Supermicro ftp site contains drivers and utilities for your system at ftp://ftp.
supermicro.com. Some of these must be installed, such as the chipset driver.
After accessing the ftp site, go into the CDR_Images directory and locate the ISO
file for your motherboard. Download this file to create a CD/DVD of the drivers and
utilities it contains. (You may also use a utility to extract the ISO file if preferred.)
Another option is to go to the Supermicro Website at http://www.supermicro.com/
products/. Find the product page for your motherboard here, where you may download individual drivers and utilities.
After creating a CD/DVD with the ISO files, insert the disk into the CD/DVD drive
on your system and the display shown below should appear.
Driver/Tool Installation Display Screen
Note 1: Click the icons showing a hand writing on paper to view the
readme files for each item. Click the computer icons to the right of these
items to install each item (from top to the bottom) one at a time. After
installing each item, you must re-boot the system before moving on
to the next item on the list. The bottom icon with a CD on it allows you

B-2 Configuring SuperDoctor III
The SuperDoctor® III program is a web-based management tool that supports
remote management capability. It includes Remote and Local Management tools.
The local management is called SD III Client. The SuperDoctor III program allows
you to monitor the environment and operations of your system. SuperDoctor III
displays crucial system information such as CPU temperature, system voltages
and fan status. See the figures below for examples of the SuperDoctor III interface.
Note: The default User Name and Password for SuperDoctor III is ADMIN
/ ADMIN.
Note: When SuperDoctor III is first installed, it adopts the temperature
threshold settings that have been set in BIOS. Any subsequent changes to
these thresholds must be made within SuperDoctor III, as the SuperDoctor III settings override the BIOS settings. To set the BIOS temperature
threshold settings again, you would first need to uninstall SuperDoctor III.
