X10SLV/-Q Motherboard User's Manual
1-3 PC Health Monitoring
This section describes the PC health monitoring features of the X10SLV/-Q Motherboard. These motherboards have an onboard System Hardware Monitor chip that
supports PC health monitoring.
Recovery from AC Power Loss
BIOS provides a setting for you to determine how the system will respond when
AC power is lost and then restored to the system. You can choose for the system
to remain powered off (in which case you must hit the power switch to turn it back
on) or for it to automatically return to a power on state. See the Power Lost Control
setting in the BIOS chapter of this manual to change this setting. The default setting is Last State.
Onboard Voltage Monitoring
The onboard voltage monitor will scan the following voltages continuously: CPU
Vcore, VBAT, 3VCC, 3VSB, 12V, Chipset 1.05V , VDIMM, PCH Temp, System Temp.
Once a voltage becomes unstable, it will give a warning or send an error message
to the screen. The User can adjust the voltage thresholds to define the sensitivity
of the voltage monitor by using SD III.
Fan Status Monitor with Software
The PC health monitor can check the RPM status of the cooling fans via SuperDoctor® III.
1-10
Chapter 1: Introduction
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, 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.
1-5 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
X10SLV/-Q Motherboard 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.
Note: The X10SLV Motherboard series alternatively supports a 4-pin 12V
DC in­put power supply for embedded applications.
1-11
X10SLV/-Q Motherboard User's Manual
1-6 Super I/O
The Super I/O provides five high-speed, 16550 compatible serial communication
ports (UARTs). Each UART includes a 16-byte send/receive FIFO, a programmable
baud rate generator, complete modem control capability and a processor interrupt
system. Both UARTs provide legacy speed with baud rate of up to 115.2 Kbps as
well as an advanced speed with baud rates of 250 K, 500 K, or 1 Mb/s, which support higher speed modems.
The Super I/O provides functions that comply with ACPI (Advanced Configuration
and Power Interface), which includes support of legacy and ACPI power management through a SMI or SCI function pin. It also features auto power management
to reduce power consumption.

2-2 Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic-Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic com­ponents. To avoid damaging 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
battery upside down to avoid possible explosion.
Unpacking
The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking the board, make sure that the person handling it is static protected.

2-3 Processor and Heatsink Installation
Warning: When handling the processor package, avoid placing direct pressure on the
label area of the fan.
Important:
• 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
multi-directional heatsink only.
• Make sure to install the system board into the chassis before you
install the CPU heatsink.
• When receiving a server board 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 website for updates on CPU support.

Question: What type of memory does my motherboard support?
Answer:
The X10SLV/-Q Motherboard supports up to 16GB of unbuffered non-ECC
DDR3 (up to 1600 MHz), two-way interleaved or non-interleaved SODIMM
memory.
Question: Why does Microsoft Windows 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
3-3
X10SLV/-Q Motherboard User's Manual
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>
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., X10SLV) and build date as the extension.
For example, "X10SLV0.526".
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 <F3> to load the default
settings. Next, press <F4> 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

B-2 Configuring SuperDoctor III
The SuperDoctor 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 SuperDoctor III program included on the
CDROM that came with your motherboard 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 Figure below
for a display of the SuperDoctor III interface.
Note 1: Both default user name and password are ADMIN.
Note 2: In the Windows OS environment, the SuperDoctor 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 SuperDoctor, 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.

Appendix C
UEFI BIOS Recovery Instructions
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 to avoid possible boot failure.
C-1 An Overview to the UEFI BIOS
The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) specification provides a softwarebased interface between the operating system and the platform firmware in the
pre-boot environment. The UEFI specification supports an architecture-independent
mechanism for add-on card initialization to allow the UEFI OS loader, which is stored
in the add-on card, to boot up the system. UEFI offers a clean, hand-off control to
a computer system at bootup.
C-2 How to Recover the UEFI BIOS 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 codes, including
memory detection and recovery codes for the user to flash a new BIOS image if the
original BIOS image is corrupted. When the system power is on, the boot sector
codes execute first. Once it is completed, the main BIOS code will continue with
system initialization and bootup.
Note: Follow the BIOS Recovery instructions below for BIOS recovery
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 repair.
C-3 To Recover the Boot Sector Using a USB-Attached
Device
This feature allows the user to recover a BIOS image using a USB-attached device
without additional utilities used. A USB flash device such as a USB Flash Drive, or
a USB CD/DVD ROM/RW device can be used for this purpose. However, a USB
Hard Disk drive cannot be used for BIOS recovery at this time.
C-1
X10SLV/-Q Motherboard User’s Manual
To perform UEFI BIOS recovery using a USB-attached device, follow the instructions below.
1. Using a different machine, copy the "Super.ROM" binary image file into the
disc Root "\" Directory of a USB device or a writeable CD/DVD.
Note: If you cannot locate the "Super.ROM" file in your driver disk, visit our
website at www.supermicro.com to download the BIOS image into a USB
flash device and rename it to "Super ROM" for BIOS recovery use.
2. Insert the USB device that contains the new BIOS image ("Super.ROM") into
your USB drive and power on the system
3. While powering on the system, keep pressing <Ctrl> and <Home> simultaneously on your PS2 keyboard until your hear two short beeps. This may take
from a few seconds to one minute.
4. After locating the new BIOS binary image, the system will enter the BIOS
Recovery menu as shown below.
Note: At this point, you may decide if you want to start with BIOS Recovery. If you decide to proceed with BIOS Recovery, follow the procedures
below.
C-2
Appendix C: UEFI BIOS Recovery
5. When the screen as shown above displays, using the arrow key, select the
item- "Proceed with flash update" and press the <Enter> key. You will see the
progress of BIOS Recovery as shown in the screen below.
Note: Do not interrupt the process of BIOS flashing until it is completed.
6. After the process of BIOS Recovery is complete, press any key to reboot the
system.
7. Using a different system, extract the BIOS package into a bootable USB flash
drive.
C-3
X10SLV/-Q Motherboard User’s Manual
8. When a DOS prompt appears, enter AMI.BAT BIOSname.### at the prompt.
Note: Do not interrupt this process until BIOS flashing is completed.
9. After seeing the message that BIOS update is completed, unplug the AC power cable from the power supply to clear CMOS, and then plug the AC power
cable in the power supply again to power on the system.
10.Press <Del> continuously to enter the BIOS Setup utility.
11. Press <F3> to load default settings.
12.After loading default settings, press <F4> to save the settings and exit the
