Chapter 2 Installation
This is an ATX form factor motherboard. Before you install the motherboard, study
the configuration of your chassis to ensure that the motherboard fits into it.
Pre-installation Precautions
Take note of the following precautions before you install motherboard components
or change any motherboard settings.
• Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing the motherboard
components. Failure to do so may cause physical injuries and damages to motherboard
components.
• In order to avoid damage from static electricity to the motherboard’s components,
NEVER place your motherboard directly on a carpet. Also remember to use a grounded
wrist strap or touch a safety grounded object before you handle the components.
• Hold components by the edges and do not touch the ICs.
• Whenever you uninstall any components, place them on a grounded anti-static pad or
in the bag that comes with the components.
• When placing screws to secure the motherboard to the chassis, please do not overtighten the screws! Doing so may damage the motherboard.

2.1 Installing the CPU
1. Before you insert the 1151-Pin CPU into the socket, please check if the PnP cap is on the
socket, if the CPU surface is unclean, or if there are any bent pins in the socket. Do not
force to insert the CPU into the socket if above situation is found. Otherwise, the CPU
will be seriously damaged.
2. Unplug all power cables before installing the CPU.

2.3 Installing Memory Modules (DIMM)
This motherboard provides four 288-pin DDR4 (Double Data Rate 4) DIMM slots,
and supports Dual Channel Memory Technology.
1. For dual channel configuration, you always need to install identical (the same brand,
speed, size and chip-type) DDR4 DIMM pairs.
2. It is unable to activate Dual Channel Memory Technology with only one or three memory
module installed.
3. It is not allowed to install a DDR, DDR2 or DDR3 memory module into a DDR4 slot;
otherwise, this motherboard and DIMM may be damaged.

the pins, the jumper is “Short”. If no jumper cap is placed on the pins, the jumper is
“Open”.
Clear CMOS Jumper
(CLRCMOS1)
(see p.8, No. 25)
2-pin Jumper
Short: Clear CMOS
Open: Default
CLRCMOS1 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system setup
parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup, please
turn off the computer and unplug the power cord, then use a jumper cap to short
the pins on CLRCMOS1 for 3 seconds. Please remember to remove the jumper
cap after clearing the CMOS. If you need to clear the CMOS when you just finish
updating the BIOS, you must boot up the system first, and then shut it down
before you do the clear-CMOS action.

Chapter 4 UEFI SETUP UTILITY
4.1 Introduction
This section explains how to use the UEFI SETUP UTILITY to configure your
system. You may run the UEFI SETUP UTILITY by pressing <F2> or <Del> right
after you power on the computer, otherwise, the Power-On-Self-Test (POST) will
continue with its test routines. If you wish to enter the UEFI SETUP UTILITY after
POST, restart the system by pressing <Ctl> + <Alt> + <Delete>, or by pressing the
reset button on the system chassis. You may also restart by turning the system off
and then back on.

CPU Configuration
Multi Core Enhancement
Improve the system's performance by forcing the CPU to perform the highest
frequency on all CPU cores simultaneously. Disable to reduce power consumption .
CPU Ratio
The CPU speed is determined by the CPU Ratio multiplied with the BCLK.
Increasing the CPU Ratio will increase the internal CPU clock speed without
affecting the clock speed of other components.
CPU Cache Ratio
The CPU Internal Bus Speed Ratio. The maximum should be the same as the CPU
Ratio.
Minimum CPU Cache Ratio
Set the minimum CPU Internal Bus Speed Ratio.
BCLK Frequency
The CPU speed is determined by the CPU Ratio multiplied with the BCLK.
Increasing the BCLK will increase the internal CPU clock speed but also affect the
clock speed of other components.
Spread Spectrum
Enable Spread Spectrum to reduce electromagnetic interference for passing EMI
tests. Disable to achieve higher clock speeds when overclocking.
CPU BCLK Amplitude
Configure the CPU BCLK Amplitude.
CPU Slew Rate
Configure the CPU Slew Rate.
CPU PLL ORT
Configure the CPU PLL ORT.
English
Divider

57
handoff. Max Battery mode will set CPU ratio as x8 till OS handoff. This option is
suggested for BCLK overclocking.
Reliability Stress Restrictor
Disable or Enable Reliability Stress Restrictor feature.
FCLK Frequency

AVX Ratio Offset
AVX Ratio Offset specifies a negative offset from the CPU Ratio for AVX workloads.
AVX is a more stressful workload that lowers the AVX ratio to ensure maximum
possible ratio for SSE workloads.
BCLK Aware Adaptive Voltage
BCLK Aware Adaptive Voltage enable/disable. When enabled, pcode will be aware
of the BCLK frequency when calculating the CPU V/F curves. This is ideal for
BCLK OC to avoid high voltage overrides.
Ring to Core Ratio Offset
Disable Ring to Core Ratio Offset so the ring and core can run at the same
frequency.
Intel SpeedStep Technology
Intel SpeedStep technology allows processors to switch between multiple frequencies and voltage points for better power saving and heat dissipation.
Intel Turbo Boost Technology
Intel Turbo Boost Technology enables the processor to run above its base operating
frequency when the operating system requests the highest performance state.
Intel Speed Shift Technology
Enable/Disable Intel Speed Shift Technology support. Enabling will expose the
CPPC v2 interface to allow for hardware controlled P-sates.

Long Duration Maintained
Configure the period of time until the CPU ratio is lowered when the Long
Duration Power Limit is exceeded.

This motherboard has two BIOS chips, an active BIOS (BIOS_A) and a backup
BIOS (BIOS_B), which enhances the safety and stability of your system. Use “Secure
Backup UEFI” to duplicate a working copy of the BIOS files to the active BIOS to
ensure normal system operation. Normally, the system will work on the active BIOS.
However if the active BIOS is corrupted or damaged, after several failed boot
attempts, the backup BIOS will take over. For safety issues, users are not able to
update the backup BIOS manually. Users may refer to the BIOS LEDs (BIOS_A_LED
or BIOS_B_LED) to identify which BIOS is currently activated.
