X9DRFF-iG+/iTG+/7G+/7TG+ Motherboard User’s Manual
1-3 Special Features
Recovery from AC Power Loss
The Basic I/O System (BIOS) provides a setting that determines 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 press the power switch
to turn it back on), or for it to automatically return to the power-on state. See the
Advanced BIOS Setup section for this setting. The default setting is Last State.
1-4 PC Health Monitoring
This section describes the features of PC health monitoring of the motherboard.
This motherboard has an onboard System_Hardware_Monitor chip that supports
PC health monitoring. An onboard voltage monitor will scan the following onboard
voltages continuously: Onboard voltage monitors for 3.3V, +3.3VSB, 5V, +5VSB,
+12V/-12V, VBAT, HT, memory voltages, chipset voltages and CPU core voltages .
Once a voltage becomes unstable, a warning is given, or an error message is sent
to the screen. The user can adjust the voltage thresholds to define the sensitivity
of the voltage monitor.
Environmental Temperature Control
A thermal control sensor monitors the CPU temperatures in real time and will turn
on the thermal control fans 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 the CPU from overheating. The onboard chassis thermal circuitry
can monitor the overall system temperature and alert the user when the chassis
temperature is too high.
Note: To avoid possible system overheating, please be sure to provide
adequate airflow to your system.
System Resource Alert
This feature is available when used with SuperDoctor® III in the Windows OS
environment or used with SuperDoctor II in Linux. SuperDoctor is used to notify
the user of certain system events. For example, you can configure SuperDoctor
to provide you with warnings when the system temperature, CPU temperatures,
voltages, and fan speeds go beyond a predefined range.
1-12
Chapter 1: Overview
1-5 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.
In addition to operating_system-directed power management, ACPI also provides
a generic system event mechanism for Plug and Play, and an operating systemindependent 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 7, Windows 8, and Windows 2008
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 the suspend mode. When the user presses any key,
the CPU will "wake up," and the LED will automatically stop blinking and remain on.
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 X9DRFF-iG+/iTG+/7G+/7TG+ motherboard supports two 8-pin and one 4-pin
power supplies. Although most power supplies generally meet the specifications
required by the CPU, some are inadequate. All these power connections are required for Fat Twin use only.
Note: To ensure adequate power to the system, SMC-proprietary power
backplanes or adaptors may be required. Refer to the server user's manual
that came with your system for detailed instructions on power supply
recommendations.
1-13
X9DRFF-iG+/iTG+/7G+/7TG+ Motherboard User’s Manual
1-7 Super I/O
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.
Note 1: For more information on IPMI configuration, please refer to the
IPMI User's Guide posted on our website at http://www.supermicro.com/
support/manuals/.
Note 2: The term "IPMI controller" and the term "BMC controller" can be
used interchangeably in this section.
1-8 Advanced Power Management
The new advanced power management features supported by this motherboard
include IPNM and ME. Please note that you will need to do the following to use
these two new features:
•Use a power supply that supports PMBus 1.1 or 1.2.
•Install the NMView software in your system. NMView is optional and can be
purchased from Supermicro.
Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager (IPNM)
The Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager (IPNM) provides your system with
real-time thermal control and power management for maximum energy efficiency.
Although IPNM is supported by the BMC (Baseboard Management Controller),
your system must also have IPNM-compatible Management Engine (ME) firmware
installed in your system for IPNM support.
Note: Support for IPNM Specification Version 1.5 or Vision 2.0 depends
on the power supply used in the system.
Management Engine (ME)
The Management Engine, which is an ARC controller embedded in the PCH, provides Server Platform Services (SPS) to your system. The services provided by
SPS are different from those provided by the ME on client platforms.

Other Important Notes and Restrictions
•For the memory modules to work properly, please install DIMM modules of the same
type, same speed and same operating frequency on the motherboard. Mixing of
RDIMMs, UDIMMs or LRDIMMs is not allowed. Do not install both ECC and Non-ECC
memory modules on the same motherboard.
•Using DDR3 DIMMs with different operating frequencies is not allowed. All channels
in a system will run at the lowest common frequency.

X9DRFF-iG+/iTG+/7G+/7TG+ Motherboard User’s Manual
2-5 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.
Tools Needed
•Phillips Screwdriver
•Pan head screws (10 pieces)
•Standoffs (10 pieces, if needed)
Location of Mounting Holes
There are ten (10) mounting holes on this motherboard indicated by the arrows.

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

CMOS Clear
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.
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.
Watch Dog Enable/Disable
Watch Dog (JWD1) is a system monitor that will reboot the system when a software application hangs.
Close pins 1-2 to reset the system if an application
hangs. Close pins 2-3 to generate a non-maskable
interrupt signal for the application that hangs. See
the table on the right for jumper settings. Watch Dog
must also be enabled in the BIOS.

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.
Note: Always disconnect the power cord before adding, changing or installing any hardware components.
Before Power On
1. Make sure that there are no short circuits between the motherboard and
chassis.
2. Disconnect all ribbon/wire cables from the motherboard, including those for
the keyboard and mouse.
3. Remove all add-on cards.
4. Install CPU 1 first (making sure it is fully seated) and connect the front panel
connectors to the motherboard.
No Power
1. Make sure that no short circuits between the motherboard and the chassis.
2. Make sure that the ATX power connectors are properly connected
3. Check that the 115V/230V switch on the power supply is properly set, if available.
4. Turn the power switch on and off to test the system, if applicable.
5. 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.

power supply may cause the system to lose the CMOS setup information.
Refer to Section 2-7 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.
When the System Becomes Unstable
A. The system becomes unstable during or after the OS installation
The system becomes unstable during or after the OS installation, check the following:
1. CPU/BIOS support: Make sure that your CPU is supported, and you have the
latest BIOS installed in your system.
2. Memory support: Make sure that the memory modules are supported by testing the modules using memtest86 or a similar utility.
Note: Refer to the product page on our website http:\\www.supermicro.
com for memory and CPU support and updates.
3. HDD support: Make sure that all hard disk drives (HDDs) work properly. Replace the bad HDDs with good ones.
4. System cooling: Check system cooling to make sure that all heatsink fans,
and CPU/system fans, etc., work properly. Check Hardware Monitoring settings in the BIOS to make sure that the CPU and System temperatures are
within the normal range. Also check the front panel Overheat LED, and make
sure that the Overheat LED is not on.
5. Adequate power supply: Make sure that the power supply provides adequate
power to the system. Make sure that all power connectors are connected.

Chapter 3: Troubleshooting
B. The system becomes unstable before or during the OS installation
When the system becomes unstable before or during OS installation, check the
following:
1. Source of installation: Make sure that the devices used for installation are
working properly, including boot devices such as CD/DVD disc, CD/DVDROM.
2. Cable connection: Check to make sure that all cables are connected and
working properly.
3. Using minimum configuration for troubleshooting: Remove all unnecessary
components (starting with add-on cards first), and use minimum configuration (with a CPU and one memory module installed) to identify the trouble
areas. Refer to the steps listed in Section A above for proper troubleshooting
procedures.
4. Identifying bad components by isolating them: If necessary, remove a component in question from the chassis, and test it in isolation to make sure that it
works properly. Replace a bad component with a good one.
5. Check and change one component at a time instead of changing several
items at the same time. This will help isolate and identify the problem.
6. To find out if a component is good, swap this component with a new one to
see if the system will work properly. If so, then the old component is bad.
You can also install the component in question in another system. If the new
system works, the component is good and the old system has problems.
