Chipset Overview
Built upon the functionality and the capability of the 5000P/5000X chipset, the
X7DBU/X7DGU motherboard provides the performance and feature set required
for dual processor-based servers with configuration options optimized for communications, presentation, storage, computation or database applications. The
5000P/5000X chipset supports a single or dual Intel 64-bit Quad-core/Dual-core
processor(s) with front side bus speeds of up to 1.333 GHz. The chipset consists
of the 5000P/5000X Memory Controller Hub (MCH) and the Enterprise South Bridge
2 (ESB2),
The 5000P/5000X MCH chipset is designed for symmetric multiprocessing across
two independent front side bus interfaces. Each front side bus uses a 64-bit wide,
1333 MHz data bus that transfers data at 10.7 GB/sec. The MCH chipset connects
up to 8 Fully Buffered DIMM modules, providing up to 32 GB of DDR2 FBD ECC
memory. The MCH chipset also provides three x8 PCI-Express interface to the
ESB2. In addition, the 5000P/5000X chipset offers a wide range of RAS features,
including memory interface ECC, x4/x8 Single Device Data Correction, CRC, parity
protection, memory mirroring and memory sparing.
Xeon Quad-core/Dual-core Processor Features
Designed to be used with conjunction of the 5000P/5000X chipset, the Xeon Quadcore/Dual-core Processor provides a feature set as follows:
The Xeon Quad-core/Dual-core Processor
*L1 Cache Size: Instruction Cache (32KB/16KB), Data Cache (32KB/24KB)

Special Features
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 Advanced section (Boot Features) to change this setting. (Note:
Default: Last State).
1-4
PC Health Monitoring
This section describes the PC health monitoring features of the X7DBU/X7DGU.
All have an onboard System Hardware Monitor chip that supports PC health monitoring.
Onboard Voltage Monitors for CPU Cores, Memory, Chipset, HT,
+1.8V, +3.3V, +5V, +12V, −12V, +3.3V Standby, +5V standby and
VBAT
An onboard voltage monitor will scan these voltages continuously. Once a voltage
becomes unstable, a warning is given or an error message is sent to the screen.
Users can adjust the voltage thresholds to define the sensitivity of the voltage
monitor.
Fan Status Monitor with Firmware Control
The PC health monitor can check the RPM status of the cooling fans. The onboard
CPU and chassis fans are controlled by Thermal Management via BIOS (under
Hardware Monitoring in the Advanced Setting).
Environmental Temperature Control
The thermal control sensor monitors the CPU temperature in real time and will turn
on the thermal control fan whenever the CPU temperature exceeds a user-defined
threshold. The overheat circuitry runs independently from the CPU. Once it detects
that the CPU temperature is too high, it will automatically turn on the thermal fan
control to prevent any overheat damage to the CPU. The onboard chassis thermal
circuitry can monitor the overall system temperature and alert users when the chassis temperature is too high.

Chapter 1: Introduction
System Resource Alert
This feature is available when used with Supero Doctor III in the Windows OS
environment or used with Supero Doctor II in Linux. Supero Doctor is used to
notify the user of certain system events. For example, if the system is running low
on virtual memory and there is insufficient hard drive space for saving the data,
you can be alerted of the potential problem. You can also configure Supero Doctor
to provide you with warnings when the system temperature goes beyond a predefined range.

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 Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows
2003 Server Operating Systems.
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.
Main Switch Override Mechanism
When an ATX power supply is used, the power button can function as a system suspend button to make the system enter a SoftOff state. The monitor will be suspended
and the hard drive will spin down. Pressing the power button again to "wake-up" the
whole system. 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.
This option can be set in the Power section of the BIOS Setup routine.
1-11
X7DBU/X7DGU User's Manual
External Modem Ring-On
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.
1-6
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.
The X7DBU/X7DGU can only accommodate 20-pin ATX power supplies. Although
most power supplies generally meet the specifications required by the CPU, some
are inadequate. The 12V 4-pin and the 12V 8-pin power connections are also required to ensure adequate power supply to the system. In addition, the UIO power
connector, located at J11, is required to supply power to Universal IO slots. Also
your power supply must supply 1.5A for the Ethernet ports.
It is strongly recommended that you use a high quality power supply that meets ATX
power supply Specification 2.01 or above. 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.

Super I/O
The disk drive adapter functions of the Super I/O chip include a floppy disk drive
controller that is compatible with industry standard 82077/765, a data separator,
write pre-compensation circuitry, decode logic, data rate selection, a clock generator, drive interface control logic and interrupt and DMA logic. The wide range of
functions integrated onto the Super I/O greatly reduces the number of components
required for interfacing with floppy disk drives. The Super I/O supports 360 K, 720
K, 1.2 M, 1.44 M or 2.88 M disk drives and data transfer rates of 250 Kb/s, 500 Kb/s
or 1 Mb/s. It also provides two 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 an SMI or SCI function pin. It also features auto power management
to reduce power consumption.
The IRQs, DMAs and I/O space resources of the Super I/O can flexibly adjust
to meet ISA PnP requirements, which support ACPI and APM (Advanced Power
Management).

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 as specified by the manufacturer. 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 the person handling it is static protected.

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 components. Make sure that you install the processor
into the CPU socket before you install the CPU heatsink.
2. Intel's boxed Xeon 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. Make sure to install the motherboard into the chassis before you install the CPU
heatsink and fan.
4. When purchasing an LGA 771 CPU or when receiving a motherboard with an LGA
771 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.

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 motherboard
and chassis match. 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
precautionary measures to prevent damage done to these components when you
install the motherboard to the chassis.)

Installing DIMMs
Note: Check the Supermicro web site for recommended memory modules.
CAUTION
Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM
modules to prevent any possible damage. Also note that the
memory is interleaved to improve performance (see step 1).
DIMM Installation
1. Insert the desired number of DIMMs into the memory slots, starting with DIMM
#1A. The memory scheme is interleaved so you must install two modules
at a time, beginning with DIMM #1A, then DIMM #2A and so on. (*See the
Memory Installation Table Below.)
2. Insert each DIMM module vertically into its slot. Pay attention to the notch along
the bottom of the module to prevent inserting the DIMM module incorrectly.
3. Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps into place in the slot.
Repeat for all modules (see step 1 above).
Memory Support
The X7DBU/X7DGU supports up to 32 GB fully buffered (FBD) ECC DDR2 667/533
in 8 DIMMs. Populating DIMM modules with pairs of memory modules of the
same size and same type will result in Interleaved Memory which will increase
memory performance.

(*Notes: i. DIMM slot# specified: DIMM slot to be populated; “--“: DIMM slot not to be populated. ii. Both FBD 533 MHz and
667MHz DIMMs are supported; however, you need to use the
memory modules of the same speed and of the same type on a
motherboard. iii. Interleaved memory is supported when pairs
of DIMM modules are installed. For best performance, please
install memory modules in both Branch 0 and Branch 1. iv. For
memory to work properly, you need to follow the restrictions
listed above. )
Note 1: Due to OS limitations, some operating systems may not show more than
4 GB of memory.
Note 2: 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 on
the next page for details.)

Unit Identification Switches
There are two Unit Identification (UID) Switches
on the motherboard. The Front Panel UID
Switch is connected to Pin 13 of the Front
Control Panel. The Rear UID Switch (SW1)
is located next to LAN Port2. When you
push the UID Switch on the Front Control
Panel, both Rear UID and FP UID Indicators
will turn on. Push the FP UID Switch (or the
Rear UID Switch-SW1) again to turn off both
Indicators. These UID Indicators provide easy
identification of a system unit that may be in
need of service. (*For more information on
the FP UID Switch, please refer to FP UID
Switch on Page 2-11.)

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.

Question: What are the various types of memory that my motherboard can
support?
Answer: The X7DBU/X7DGU has eight 240-pin DIMM slots that support DDR2
FBD ECC 667/533 SDRAM modules. It is strongly recommended that you do not
mix memory modules of different speeds and sizes.
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 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, 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!)

Introduction
This chapter describes the Phoenix BIOS™ Setup utility for the X7DBU/X7DGU.
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.
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 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 CMOS Logic, enabling it to retain system parameters. Each time
the computer is powered on the computer is configured with the values stored in
the CMOS Logic 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.
Warning: Do not shut down or reset the system while updating BIOS
to prevent possible boot failure.
