to 192 GB of registered ECC or up to 48 GB of unbuffered ECC/non-ECC
DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz speed SDRAM. Modules of the same size and
speed are recommended with a size of 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB and 16 GB (for
Unbuffered ECC/Non-ECC memory, a maximum of 4 GB per DIMM is supported).
See Chapter 5 for details.
Serial ATA
A SATA controller is integrated into the South Bridge (Intel ICHR10R) section of the
chipset to provide a six-port 3/Gbs SATA subsystem, which is RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10
supported (RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 supported in the Windows OS Environment and
RAID 0, 1 and 10 supported by the Linux OS). The SATA drives are hot-swappable
units.
1-2
Chapter 1: Introduction
Note: The operating system you use must have RAID support to enable the hotswap capability and RAID function of the Serial ATA drives.
PCI Expansion Slots
The X8DTG-QF has four PCI-E Gen. 2.0 x16 slots (Slot 4, Slot 6, Slot 8, Slot 10),
one PCI-E Gen. 2.0 x4 (in x16) slot (Slot 2), one PCI-E 2.0 x4 (in x8) slot (Slot 11),
one PCI-E Gen. 1.0 x4 (in x16) slot (Slot 1) and two PCI 33 MHz slots (Slot 3, Slot
5) for a total of nine (9) PCI expansion slots.
Onboard Controllers/Ports
The color-coded I/O ports include one COM port (an additional COM header is
located on the serverboard), a VGA (monitor) port, ten USB 2.0 ports (six rear
USB ports, two front headers, and two Type A connections), PS/2 mouse and
keyboard ports, IPMI dedicated LAN port, High Definition Audio ports and two
Gb Ethernet ports.
IPMI
IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) is a hardware-level interface
specification that provides remote access, monitoring and administration for

Server Chassis Features
The following is a general outline of the main features of the SC747TQ-R1400B
server chassis.
System Power
Each SC747 chassis model includes a Gold level High-efficiency redundant (1+1)
power supply (93%), rated at 1400 Watts. In the unlikely event your power supply
fails, replacement is simple and can be done without tools. The AC power cord
should be removed from the system before servicing or replacing the power supply.
See Chapter 6 for details.
Mounting Rails (optional)
The SC747 can be placed in a rack for secure storage and use. To setup your rack,
follow the step-by-step instructions included in this manual in chapter 2.
Hard Drive/Drive Bays
The SC747 Chassis features eight hot-swappable slots for SATA drives. Once set
up correctly, these drives can be removed without powering down the server.
The SC747 Chassis provides three 5.25” peripheral drive bays one 3.5" fixed drive
bay for floppy drives, DVD-ROM/CD-ROM Drives, or additional hard drives.
Front Control Panel
The control panel on the server provides you with system monitoring and control.
LEDs indicate system power, HDD activity, network activity, system overheat, UID
and power supply failure. A main power button and a system reset button are also
included.
Cooling System
The SC747 chassis accepts four system fans and two rear exhaust fans. System
fans are powered from the serverboard. These fans are 4U high and are powered
by 4-pin connectors.
Backplane
Each SC747 chassis comes with a 4U backplane. Depending on your order, your
backplane will accept SATA. For more information regarding compatible backplanes,
view the appendices found at the end of this manual. In addition, visit our Web site
for the latest information: http://www.supermicro.com.

Advanced Power Management (for -F Models Only)
Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager (NM)
The Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager (IPNM) provides your system with
real-time thermal control and power management for maximum energy efficiency.
Although IPNM Specification Version 1.5 is supported by the BMC (Baseboard
Management Controller), your system must also have IPNM-compatible
Manageability Engine (ME) firmware installed to use this feature.
Manageability Engine (ME)
The Manageability Engine, which is an ARC controller embedded in the IOH (I/O
Hub), provides Server Platform Services (SPS) to your system. The services
provided by SPS are different from those proveded by the ME on client platforms.
1-5
GPU Subsystem
Some models in the SuperServer 7046GT-TRF series use are a parallel processing
server using multiple-GPU cards. These multiple-GPU servers include four NVIDIA®
Tesla™ GPUs with multiple x16 non-blocking native Gen2 PCI-Express connectivity
that places these systems at the forefront of today's GPU computing solutions. See
page 1-1 for information on which GPU cards are available for each SuperServer
7046GT-TRF series server.
Refer to the NVIDIA web site (www.nvidia.com) for details on Tesla GPUs.
Notes:
1. The GPUs process complex image calculations and then route the data out
through the VGA port on the serverboard.
2. Each GPU includes an active heatsink. Its fans work independently of the system
fans and cooling parameters.

series server up and running. Following the steps in the order given should enable
you to have the system operational within a minimal amount of time. If your system
is not already fully integrated with a motherboard, processor, system memory etc.,
please turn to the chapter or section noted in each step for details on installing
specific components.
2-2
Unpacking the System
You should inspect the box the SuperServer 7046GT-TRF series server was shipped
in and note if it was damaged in any way. If the server itself shows damage, you
should file a damage claim with the carrier who delivered it.
Decide on a suitable location for setting up and operating the SuperServer
7046GT-TRF series server. It should be situated in a clean, dust-free area that is
well ventilated. Avoid areas where heat, electrical noise and electromagnetic fields
are generated. You will also need it placed near a grounded power outlet.

Review the electrical and general safety precautions in Chapter 4.
Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the server from
power surges, voltage spikes and to keep your system operating in case of a
power failure.
Allow the power supply units and Serial ATA drives to cool before touching them.
To maintain proper cooling, always keep all chassis panels closed when not
being serviced.
Setting Up the System
You should first open the left side panel (when facing the front of the chassis) to
make sure the motherboard is properly installed and all connections have been
made.
Warning: Only qualified service technicians should access the inside of the system.
Except for short periods of time, do NOT operate the system without the cover in place.
The chassis cover must be in place to allow proper airflow and prevent overheating.
2-1
SUPERSERVER 7046GT-TRF Series User's Manual
Checking the Motherboard Setup
1. Accessing the inside of the system: Begin by disconnecting the chassis from
any power source. (A) Lift up and back on the main cover handle, which
secures the cover to the chassis. (B) Lift the main cover off of the chassis.
See Chapter 5 for details on Chassis covers and how to remove them.
2. Check the CPU (processor): You may have a processor already installed into
the system board. The processor should have its own heatsink attached. See
Chapter 5 for instructions on processor installation.
3. Check the system memory: Your system may have come with system
memory already installed. Make sure all DIMMs are fully seated in their slots.
For details on adding system memory, refer to Chapter 5.
4. Installing add-on cards: If desired, you can install up to nine add-on cards to
the system. See Chapter 5 for details on installing PCI- add-on cards.
Note: The SuperServer 7046GT-TRF series server may contain four GPU add-on
card modules that occupy many of these add-on card expansion slots.
5. Check all cable connections and airflow: Make sure all power and data cables
are properly connected and not blocking the airflow. See Chapter 5 for details
on cable connections.
Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives and the SATA drives have
been properly installed and all essential connections have been made.
1. Accessing the peripheral drive bays: To install a component to either of the
two 5.25" drive bays, you will need to remove the side chassis cover. See the
installation and removal sections for the peripheral drives in Chapter 6.
2. Check the SATA disk drives: Depending upon your system's configuration,
your system may have up to four SATA drives already installed. If you need
to install or remove an SATA drive, please refer to the appropriate section in
Chapter 6.
3. Check the airflow: Cooling air is provided by the chassis fan and the power
supply fan. The system component layout was carefully designed to promote
sufficient airflow throughout the chassis. Also note that all power and data
cables have been routed in such a way that they do not block the airflow
generated by the fan. Please keep this in mind when rerouting or adding/
removing cables.
2-2
Chapter 2: Server Installation
4. Supplying power to the system: The last thing you must do is to provide input
power to the system. Plug the power cord from the power supply unit into a
high-quality power strip that offers protection from electrical noise and power
surges. It is recommended that you use an uninterruptible power supply
(UPS).
2-4
Preparing for Rack Mounting Setup
The box your chassis was shipped in should include two sets of rail assemblies,
two rail mounting brackets and the mounting screws you will need to install the
system into the rack. Please read this section in its entirety before you begin the
installation procedure outlined in the sections that follow.
Choosing a Setup Location
•
•
•
Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open the front
door completely (~25 inches).
Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the rack to allow for
sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.
This product is for installation only in a Restricted Access Location (dedicated
equipment rooms, service closets and the like).

Warnings and Precautions!
Warning! To prevent bodily injury when mounting or servicing this unit in a
rack, you must take special precautions to ensure that the system remains stable.
The following guidelines are provided to ensure your safety:
•
•
•
This unit should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in
the rack.
When mounting this unit in a partially filled rack, load the rack from the bottom
to the top with the heaviest component at the bottom of the rack.
If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before
mounting or servicing the unit in the rack.
Rack Precautions
•
•
•
•
•
Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully extended to
the floor with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack.
In multiple rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component from the
rack.
You should extend only one component at a time - extending two or more
simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.
General Server Precautions
•
•
•
•
•
•
Review the electrical and general safety precautions that came with the
components you are adding to your chassis.
Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you install the
rails.
Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack first, and then
work up.
Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the server from
power surges, voltage spikes and to keep your system operating in case of a
power failure.
Allow the hot plug hard drives and power supply modules to cool before touching
them.
Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on the servers
closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.
2-4
Chapter 2: Server Installation
Rack Mounting Considerations
Warning: Do not pick up the server with the front handles. They are
designed to pull the system from a rack only.
Stability Hazard: The rack stabilizing mechanism must be in place, or the
rack must be bolted to the floor before you slide the unit out for servicing. Failure
to stabilize the rack can cause the rack to tip over.
Warning: When initially installing the server to a rack, test that the rail locking tabs
engage to prevent the server from being overextended. Have a rack lift in place as
a precaution in case the test fails.
Warning: In any instance of pulling the system from the rack, always use a rack
lift and follow all associated safety precautions.
Ambient Operating Temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the ambient operating
temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the ambient temperature
of the room. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment
in an environment compatible with the manufacturer’s maximum rated ambient
temperature (Tmra).
Reduced Airflow
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that the amount of airflow required
for safe operation is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that a hazardous condition does not
arise due to uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the power
supply circuitry and the effect that any possible overloading of circuits might have
on overcurrent protection and power supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of
equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
2-5
SUPERSERVER 7046GT-TRF Series User's Manual
Reliable Ground
A reliable ground must be maintained at all times. To ensure this, the rack
itself should be grounded. Particular attention should be given to power supply
connections other than the direct connections to the branch circuit (i.e. the use of
power strips, etc.).
2-5

Chapter 5
Advanced Serverboard Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install the X8DTG-QF serverboard into the
chassis, connect the data and power cables and install add-on cards. All serverboard
jumpers and connections are also described. A layout and quick reference chart
are included in this chapter for your reference. Remember to completely close the
chassis when you have finished working with the serverboard to better cool and
protect the system.
5-1
Handling the Serverboard
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them very
carefully (see previous chapter). To prevent the serverboard from bending, keep
one hand under the center of the board to support it when handling. The following
measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from electric static
discharge.
Precautions
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent Electrostatic Discharge (ESD).
Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic bag.
Handle a 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 serverboard, add-on cards 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 serverboard.
Unpacking
The serverboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid electrical static
discharge. When unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static
protected.
5-1
SUPERSERVER 7046GT-TRF Series User's Manual
5-2
Connecting Cables
Now that the serverboard is installed, the next step is to connect the cables to the
board. These include the data (ribbon) cables for the peripherals and control panel
and the power cables.
Connecting Data Cables
The ribbon cables used to transfer data from the peripheral devices have been
carefully routed to prevent them from blocking the flow of cooling air that moves
through the system from front to back. If you need to disconnect any of these cables,
you should take care to keep them routed as they were originally after reconnecting
them (make sure the red wires connect to the pin 1 locations). The following data
cables (with their locations noted) should be connected. (See the layout on page
5-9 for connector locations.)
•
•
•
SATA drive data cables (SATA0 ~ SATA5 )
SGPIO cable (T-SGP101, TSGPIO2)
Control Panel cable (JF1)
Important! Make sure the the cables do not come into contact with the fans.
Connecting Power Cables
The X8DTG-QF has a 24-pin proprietary power supply connector (JPW1) for
connection to the ATX power supply. In addition, there are two 8-pin secondary
power connectors (JPW2, JPW3) that also must be connected to your power supply.
See Section 5-7 for power connector pin definitions.
Connecting the Control Panel
JF1 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See Figure 5-1
for the pin locations of the various front control panel buttons and LED indicators.
All JF1 wires have been bundled into a single ribbon cable to simplify this
connection. Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 as marked on the board. The
other end connects to the Control Panel PCB board, located just behind the system
status LEDs on the chassis. See below for details and pin descriptions.

Installing the Processor and Heatsink
Warning: Avoid placing direct pressure to the top of the processor package. Always
remove the power cord first before adding, removing or changing any hardware
components.
Notes:
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.
•
•
•
•
•
If you buy a CPU separately, make sure that you use an Intel-certified multidirectional heatsink only.
Make sure to install the serverboard into the chassis before you install the CPU
heatsinks.
When receiving a serverboard without a processor pre-installed, make sure that
the plastic CPU socket cap is in place and none of the socket pins are bent;
otherwise, contact your retailer immediately.
Refer to the Supermicro web site for updates on CPU support.

Installation and Removal of the Heatsink
Installing the Heatsink
Screw #1
1. Do not apply any thermal grease
to the heatsink or the CPU die; the
required amount has already been
applied.
2. Place the heatsink on top of the
CPU so that the four mounting
holes are aligned with those on the
retention mechanism.
Screw #2
3. Screw in two diagonal screws (i.e.
the #1 and the #2 screws) until
just snug (do not over-tighten the
screws, which may damage the
CPU.)
4. Finish the installation by fully
tightening all four screws.
Note: Make sure the heatsink is placed so that the fins of the heatsink are in the
direction of the airflow in your system.
Uninstalling the Heatsink
Warning: We do not recommend removing the CPU or the heatsink. However, if you
do need to uninstall the heatsink, please follow these instructions to avoid damaging
the CPU or the CPU socket.
1. Unscrew and remove the heatsink
screws in the sequence shown in
the picture on the right.
2. Hold the heatsink as shown in
the picture on the right and gently
wriggle to loosen it from the CPU.
(Do not use excessive force when
doing this!)
3. Once the heatsink is loosened,
remove it from the CPU socket.
4. Clean the surface of the CPU and
the heatsink to get rid of the old
thermal grease. Reapply the proper
amount of thermal grease before
you re-install the heatsink.

Installing Memory
CAUTION! Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM modules to
prevent any possible damage.
Memory Support
The X8DTG-QF supports up to 192 GB of registered ECC or up to 48 GB of
unbuffered ECC/non-ECC DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz speed SDRAM in twelve (12)
DIMM slots. See the following table for memory installation.
Notes: The X8DTG-QF supports 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB and 16 GB of registered
ECC DIMMs. However, with unbuffered ECC/non-ECC memory only 4 GB is the
maximum DIMM size that can be supported per slot.
Memory speed support is dependent on the type of CPU used on the board.
Installing Memory Modules
1. Insert the desired number of DIMMs into the memory slots, starting with
P1-DIMM 1A. For best memory performance, please install memory modules
of the same type and same speed on the memory slots as indicated on the
tables below.
2. Insert each DIMM module vertically into its slot. Pay attention to the notch
along the bottom of the module to avoid installing incorrectly (see Figure 5-6).
3. Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps into place in the slot.
Repeat for all modules.
Note: For the latest CPU/memory updates, please refer to our website at
http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard.

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 diagram at right for
an example of jumping pins 1 and 2.
Refer to the motherboard layout page
for jumper locations.
Jumper
Setting
JBT1 contact pads
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, which will also clear any passwords. Instead of pins,
this jumper consists of contact pads to prevent accidentally clearing the contents
of CMOS.
To Clear CMOS
1. First power down the system and unplug the power cord(s). It is also
recommended that you remove the onboard battery from the serverboard.
2. With the power disconnected, short the CMOS pads with a metal object such
as a small screwdriver.
3. Remove the screwdriver (or shorting device).
4. Reconnect the power cord(s) and power on the system.
Note 1. For an ATX power supply, you must completely shut down the system,
remove the AC power cord, and then short JBT1 to clear CMOS.
Note 2. Be sure to remove the onboard CMOS Battery before you short JBT1 to
clear CMOS.
Note 3. Clearing CMOS will also clear all passwords.
Note 4: Do not use the PW_ON connector to clear CMOS.

Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them very
carefully.
The following measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from
ESD damage:
Precautions
•
•
•
•
•
•
6-2
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic bag.
Handle a 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 serverboard, add-on cards 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 serverboard.
Control Panel
The control panel (located on the front of the chassis) must be connected to the
JF1 connector on the serverboard to provide you with system status indications. A
ribbon cable has bundled these wires together to simplify the connection. Connect
the cable from JF1 on the serverboard to the appropriate header on the Control
Panel PCB (printed circuit board). Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 on both
connectors. Pull all excess cabling out of the airflow path.
The control panel LEDs inform you of system status. See "Chapter 3: System
Interface" for details on the LEDs and the control panel buttons. Details on JF1 can
be found in "Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Installation."
6-3
System Cooling
Six heavy-duty fans provide cooling for the chassis. Four fans are located in the
mid-section of the chassis with two fans in the rear. These fans circulate air through
the chassis as a means of lowering the chassis internal temperature.
The fans come pre-installed to the chassis. Each fan is hot-swappable and can be
replaced without removing any connections.
6-2
Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
System Fan Failure
Fan speed is controlled by system temperature via a BIOS setting. If a fan fails, the
remaining fans will ramp up to full speed. Replace any failed fan at your earliest
convenience with the same type and model (the system can continue to run with
a failed fan).
Replacing System Fans
The SC747 chassis contains two types of system fans: mid-system fans and rear
system fans.
Replacing Mid-System Fans
1. Determine which fan has failed. Because the fans are hot-swappable, the
chassis does not need to be powered-down.
2. Press the fan release tab and lift the failed fan from the chassis. Mid fans
must be pulled straight out of the chassis (see Figure 6-3).
3. Place the new fan into the vacant space in the housing while making sure
the arrows on the top of the fan (indicating air direction) point in the same
direction as the arrows on the other fans. As soon as the fan is connected, it
will begin working.

Power Supply
The SC747 chassis has a 1400 Watt (redundant) power supply. This power supply
is auto-switching capable. This enables it to automatically sense and operate at a
100v to 240v input voltage. An amber light will be illuminated on the power supply
when the power is off. An illuminated green light indicates that the power supply
is operating.
Power Supply Failure
If the power supply module fails, the system will shut down and you will need to
replace the module. Replacements can be ordered directly from Supermicro (see
contact information in the Preface).
As there is only one power supply module in the system, power must be completely
removed from the server before removing and replacing the power supply for
whatever reason.
Replacing the Power Supply
With a redundant power supply, the system automatically switches to the second
power supply if the first should fail.
Replacing the Power Supply
1. Power down the chassis and unplug the power cord. If your chassis includes
a redundant power supply (at least two power modules), you can leave the
server running and remove only one power supply.
2. Push the release tab (on the back of the power supply) as illustrated in Figure
6-19.
3. Pull the power supply out using the handle provided.
4. Replace the failed power module with the same model.
5. Push the new power supply module into the power bay until you hear a click.

Introduction
This chapter describes the AMI BIOS Setup Utility for the X8DTG-QF. 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.
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.

SUPERSERVER 7046GT-TRF Series User's Manual
The following items will be displayed for your reference only:
CPU 1 Temperature/CPU 2 Temperature
The CPU thermal technology that reports absolute temperatures (Celsius/
Fahrenheit) has been upgraded to a more advanced feature by Intel in its newer
processors. The basic concept is each CPU is embedded by unique temperature
information that the motherboard can read. This ‘Temperature Threshold’ or
‘Temperature Tolerance’ has been assigned at the factory and is the baseline on
which the motherboard takes action during different CPU temperature conditions
(i.e., by increasing CPU Fan speed, triggering the Overheat Alarm, etc). Since
CPUs can have different ‘Temperature Tolerances’, the installed CPU can now send
information to the motherboard what its ‘Temperature Tolerance’ is, and not the other
way around. This results in better CPU thermal management.
Supermicro has leveraged this feature by assigning a temperature status to certain
thermal conditions in the processor (Low, Medium and High). This makes it easier
for the user to understand the CPU’s temperature status, rather than by just simply
seeing a temperature reading. The CPU Temperature feature will display the CPU
temperature status as detected by the BIOS:
Low – This level is considered as the ‘normal’ operating state. The CPU temperature
is well below the CPU ‘Temperature Tolerance’. The motherboard fans and CPU will
run normally as configured in the BIOS (Fan Speed Control).
Medium – The processor is running warmer. This is a ‘precautionary’ level and
generally means that there may be factors contributing to this condition, but the CPU
is still within its normal operating state and below the CPU ‘Temperature Tolerance’.
The motherboard fans and CPU will run normally as configured in the BIOS. The
fans may adjust to a faster speed depending on the Fan Speed Control settings.
User intervention: No action is required. However, consider checking the CPU fans
and the chassis ventilation for blockage.
High – The processor is running hot. This is a ‘caution’ level since the CPU’s
‘Temperature Tolerance’ has been reached (or has been exceeded) and may
activate an overheat alarm.
User intervention: If the system buzzer and Overheat LED has activated, take action
immediately by checking the system fans, chassis ventilation and room temperature
to correct any problems.
Notes:
1. The system may shut down if it continues for a long period to prevent
damage to the CPU.
2. The information provided above is for your reference only. For more
information on thermal management, please refer to Intel’s Web site at www.

CPU on-die temperature increases, the fan speed will also increase for effective
system cooling. The Options are: Full Speed/FS, Performance/PF, Balanced/BL,
and Energy Saving/ES.
Select "Full Speed/FS" to allow the onboard fans to run at full speed for maximum
cooling. The FS setting is recommended for special system configuration or
debugging.
Select "Performance/PF" for better system cooling. The PF setting is recommended
for high-power-consuming and high-density systems.
Select "Balanced/BL" for the onboard fans to run at a speed that will balance the
needs between system cooling and power saving. The BL setting is recommended
for regular systems with normal hardware configurations.

BIOS Recovery
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 need to update the BIOS, do not shut down or reset
the system while the BIOS is updating. This is to avoid possible boot failure.
How to Recover the AMIBIOS Image (-the Main BIOS
Block)
An AMIBIOS flash chip consists of a boot sector block, and a main BIOS code block
(a main BIOS image). The boot sector block contains critical BIOS code, including
memory detection and recovery code to be used to flash a new BIOS image if the
original BIOS Image is corrupted. When the system is powered on, the boot sector
code executes first. Once it is completed, the main BIOS code will continue with
system initialization and complete the bootup process.
Notes: BIOS Recovery described below is used when the main BIOS block
crashes. However, when the BIOS Boot sector crashes, you will need to send the
motherboard back to Supermicro for RMA repairs.
4.7.1 Boot Sector Recovery from a USB Device
This feature allows the user to recover a BIOS image using a USB device without
additional utilities needed. A user can download the BIOS image into a USB flash
device, and name the file "SUPER.ROM" for the recovery process to load the file.
A USB flash device such as a USB Flash Drive, a USB CDROM or a USB CDRW
device can be used for this purpose,
3. Insert the USB device that contains the new BIOS image (the ROM files)
saved in a root directory into your USB drive.
7-28
Chapter 7: BIOS
4. While turning the power on, press and hold <Ctrl> and <Home> at the same
time until the USB Access LED Indicator comes on. This might take a few
seconds.
5. Once the USB drive LED is on, release the <Ctrl> and <Home> keys.
AMIBIOS will issue beep codes to indicate that the BIOS ROM file is being
updated.
6. When BIOS flashing is completed, the computer will reboot. Do not interrupt
the flashing process until it is completed.
4.7.2 Boot Sector Recovery from an IDE CD-ROM
This process is almost identical to the process of Boot Sector Recovery from a USB
device, except that the BIOS image file is loaded from a CD-ROM. Use a CD-R or
CD-RW drive to burn a CD with the BIOS image file in it, and name the file "SUPER.
ROM" for the recovery process to load the file.
4.7.3 Boot Sector Recovery from a Serial Port ("Serial
Flash")
This process, also known as "Serial Flash," allows the user to use a serial port
to load a BIOS image for Boot Sector recovery. This feature is usually used for
embedded systems that rely on a serial port for remote access and debugging.
Requirements
In order to use Serial Flash for Boot Sector Recovery, you will need to meet the
following requirements.
•
•
•
The "Target system," the system that needs BIOS updates, must have a serial
port and "Serial Flash" support embedded in the BIOS image file.
The "Host system" should also have a serial port and a terminal program that
supports XModem Transfer protocol (Hyper Terminal for the Windows operating
systems, and minicom for Linux/FreeSBD, etc.).
A Null_modem serial cable
How to use Serial Flash for Boot Sector Recovery
1. Connect a Null_modem serial cable between the target system and the host
system that runs the terminal program.
2. Make sure that the new BIOS Image file is accessible for the host system.
7-29
SUPERSERVER 7046GT-TRF Series User's Manual
3. Start the terminal program on the host system and create a new connection.
Use the following communication parameters for the new connection.
•

4. Power on your system and click the <Connect> button in the Hyper Terminal.
The terminal screen will display the following messages.
Press <SpaceBar> to update BIOS.
Confirm update BIOS? (y/n) y
Begin remote BIOS flash? (y/n) y

Upload new BIOS file using Xmodem protocol.
5. Following the instructions given on the screen to update the BIOS. These
instructions are also shown below.
a. At the prompt, press the <SpaceBar> to update the BIOS.
b. When asked to confirm BIOS updating, press <y> to confirm BIOS updates.
c. Press <y> again to begin flashing BIOS remotely.
Note: Be sure to complete Steps a~c above quickly because you have a second
or less to do so.
6. Once you've completed the instructions given, a screen will display to indicate
that remote flashing is starting and the new BIOS file is being uploaded.
7. To use Hyper Terminal to transfer the XModem protocol by using the "Send
File" dialog under the "Transfer" menu, follow the instructions below to
complete XModem transfers.
a. Select the "Transfer" menu and enter <Send>.
7-30
Chapter 7: BIOS
b. Specify the location of the ROM file and select the proper protocol
(XModem).
c. Press <Send> to start ROM File extraction. (See the picture below.)
d. Once the ROM file extraction is completed, the message: "New BIOS
received OK" will display.
8. Once remote BIOS flash is completed, the system will reboot.
Note: AMIBIOS Serial Flash will work with any terminal communications program
that supports VT-100 and XModem protocols, including protocols designed for
GNU/LINUX & BSD operating systems such as minicom. It is recommended that
the terminal program be configured to use the 'CR/LF' style of line termination.
