Chapter 1
Chapter 1:
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.
•
Before handling components, use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safely grounded
object or a metal object, such as the power supply case, 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 ATX 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, or components.

System memory
Chapter 1
The motherboard comes with eight (8) DDR4 (Double Data Rate 4) Dual Inline Memory
Modules (DIMM) slots.
A DDR4 module is notched differently from a DDR, DDR2, or DDR3 module. DO NOT
install a DDR, DDR2, or DDR3 memory module to the DDR4 slot.
Ensure to install at least one of the memory modules into the A1*/B1*/C1*/D1* slot under
X-Series (6-core above) Processors.

•
For Intel® Core™ X-series (4-core) Processors, you may install varying memory sizes
in Channel C and Channel D. The system maps the total size of the lower-sized
channel for the dual-channel configuration. Any excess memory from the higher-sized
channel is then mapped for single-channel operation.

For Intel® Core™ X-series (6-core above) Processors, you may install varying memory
sizes in Channel A, Channel B, Channel C, and Channel D. The system maps the
total size of the lower-sized channel for the quad-channel configuration. Any excess
memory from the higher-sized channel is then mapped for single-channel operation.
•
The default memory operation frequency is dependent on its Serial Presence Detect
(SPD), which is the standard way of accessing information from a memory module.
Under the default state, some memory modules for overclocking may operate at a
lower frequency than the vendor-marked value.
•
For system stability, use a more efficient memory cooling system to support a full
memory load (8 DIMMs) or overclocking condition.
•
Always install the DIMMS with the same CAS Latency. For an optimum compatibility,
we recommend that you install memory modules of the same version or data code
(D/C) from the same vendor. Check with the vendor to get the correct memory
modules.

Jumpers and holes
Clear RTC RAM jumper (2-pin CLRTC)
Chapter 1
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 includes system setup information such as system passwords.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2.
Short-circuit pin 1-2 with a metal object for about 5-10 seconds.
3.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4.
Hold down the <Delete> 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 default
position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!
•
If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper
again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After the CMOS clearance, reinstall the
battery.
•
You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking. For
system failure due to overclocking, use the C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall) feature.
Shut down and reboot the system so the BIOS can automatically reset parameter
settings to default values.
•
Due to the chipset behavior, AC power off is required to enable C.P.R. function. You
must turn off and on the power supply or unplug and plug the power cord before
rebooting the system.

The CPU Over Voltage jumper allows you to set a higher CPU voltage for a flexible
overclocking system, depending on the type of the installed CPU. To gain more CPU
voltage setting, insert the jumper to pins 2-3. To go back to its default CPU voltage
setting, insert the jumper to pins 1-2.

The new ASUS UEFI BIOS is a Unified Extensible Interface that complies with UEFI
architecture, offering a user-friendly interface that goes beyond the traditional keyboardonly BIOS controls to enable a more flexible and convenient mouse input. You can easily
navigate the new UEFI BIOS with the same smoothness as your operating system. The
term “BIOS” in this user manual refers to “UEFI BIOS” unless otherwise specified.
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) stores system hardware settings such as storage
device configuration, overclocking settings, advanced power management, and boot
device configuration that are needed for system startup in the motherboard CMOS. In
normal circumstances, the default BIOS settings apply to most conditions to ensure
optimal performance. DO NOT change the default BIOS settings except in the following
circumstances:
•
An error message appears on the screen during the system bootup and requests you to
run the BIOS Setup.
•
You have installed a new system component that requires further BIOS settings or
update.
Inappropriate BIOS settings may result to instability or boot failure. We strongly
recommend that you change the BIOS settings only with the help of a trained service
personnel.

RAID Support
RAID Support
4.1
RAID configurations
4
The motherboard supports Intel® Rapid Storage Technology with RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10,
and RAID 5 solution.
If you want to install a Windows® operating system to a hard disk drive included in a RAID
set, you have to create a RAID driver disk and load the RAID driver during OS installation.
Refer to section 4.2 Creating a RAID driver disk for details.
4.1.1
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 5 strips 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.
Chapter 4
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.
ROG STRIX X299-E GAMING
4-1
4.1.2
Installing Serial ATA hard disks
The motherboard supports Serial ATA hard disk drives. For optimal performance, install
identical drives of the same model and capacity when creating a disk array.
To install the SATA hard disks for a RAID configuration:
1.
Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays.
2.
Connect the SATA signal cables.
3.
Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive.
4.1.3Intel® Rapid Storage Technology in UEFI BIOS
To enter the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology in UEFI BIOS:
1.
Enter the BIOS Setup during POST.
2.
Go to the Advanced menu > PCH Storage Configuration, then press <Enter>.
3.

4.
Go to the Boot menu > CSM (Compatibility Support Module) > Launch CSM, then
set the item to [Disabled].
5.
Save your changes and exit the BIOS Setup, then enter the BIOS Setup again.
6.
Go to the Advanced menu > Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology, then press <Enter>
to display the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology menu.
Refer to Chapter 3 for details on entering and navigating through the BIOS Setup.
