1-9
X10SAT User’s Manual
1-3 Special Features
Recovery from AC Power Loss
Basic I/O System (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 press the power
switch to turn it back on), or for it to automatically return to a power-on state. See
the Advanced BIOS Setup section to change this setting. The default setting is
Last State.
1-4 PC Health Monitoring
This section describes the PC health monitoring features of the board. All have an
onboard System Hardware Monitoring chip that supports PC health monitoring. An
onboard voltage monitor will scan these onboard voltages continuously: CPU Vcore,
12V, -12V, 5V, 5VSB, 3.3V, 3.3VSB, and Battery 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.
Fan Status Monitor with Firmware Control
PC health monitoring in the BIOS can check the RPM status of the cooling fans.
The onboard CPU and chassis fans are controlled by Thermal Management via
IPMI Firmware.
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 the thermal sensor detects that the CPU temperature is too high, it will automatically turn
on the thermal fans 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 the system is used with SuperDoctor® III in the
Windows OS environment or used with SuperDoctor® II in Linux. SuperDoctor®
1-10
Chapter 1: Introduction
is used to notify the user of certain system events. For example, you can also
configure SuperDoctor to provide you with warnings when the system temperature,
CPU temperatures, voltages and fan speeds go beyond predefined thresholds.
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 enabling operating system-directed power management, ACPI also
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 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 to blink
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.
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.
This motherboard accommodates 24-pin ATX power supplies. Although most
power supplies generally meet the specifications required by the CPU, some are
inadequate. In addition, the 12V 8-pin power connector located at JPW2 is also
required to ensure adequate power supply to the system. Also your power supply
must supply 1.5A for the Ethernet ports.
Warning: To prevent damage to the power supply or motherboard, please use a
power supply that contains a 24-pin and a 8-pin power connectors. Be sure to connect these connectors to the 24-pin (JPW1) and the 8-pin (JPW2) power connectors
on the motherboard.
It is strongly recommended that you use a high quality power supply that meets ATX
power supply Specification 2.02 or above. It must also be SSI compliant. (For more
1-11
X10SAT User’s Manual
information, please refer to the web site 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.
1-7 Super I/O
The Super I/O supports 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.

Notes
•Be sure to use memory modules of the same type, same speed, same
frequency on the same motherboard. Mixing of memory modules of different types and speeds is not allowed.
•Due to memory allocation to system devices, the amount of memory that
remains available for operational use will be reduced when 4 GB of RAM
is used. The reduction in memory availability is disproportional. See the
following table for details.
•For Microsoft Windows users: Microsoft implemented a design change in the
Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Windows Vista. This change is
specific to the behavior of Physical Address Extension (PAE) mode which
improves driver compatibility. For more information, please read the following

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.

Fan Header
Pin Definitions
The X10SAT has five fan headers (Fan 1~Fan
5). These fans are 4-pin fan headers. Although
pins 1-3 of the fan headers are backward compatible with the traditional 3-pin fans, we recommend the use 4-pin fans to take advantage of
the fan speed control via IPMI interface. This
allows the fan speeds to be automatically adjusted based on the motherboard temperature.

2-8 Jumper Settings
Explanation of Jumpers
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
circuit board.
Note: On two-pin jumpers,
"Closed" means the jumper is on,
and "Open" means the jumper is
off the pins.
LAN1/LAN2 Enable/Disable

CMOS Clear (JBT1)
JBT1 is used to clear the saved system setup configuration stored in the CMOS
chip. To clear the contents of the CMOS, completely shut down the system, remove
the AC power cord and then short JBT1 with a jumper. Remove the jumper before
powering on the system again. This will erase all user settings and revert everything
to their factory-set defaults.

X10SAT User’s Manual
No Video
1. If the power is on, but you have no video--in this case, you will need to remove all the add-on cards and cables first.
2. Use the speaker to determine if any beep codes exist. (Refer to Appendix A
for details on beep codes.)
3. Remove all memory modules and turn on the system. (If the alarm is on,
check the specifications of memory modules, reset the memory or try a different one.)
Memory Errors
1. Make sure that the DIMM modules are properly installed and fully seated in
the slots.
2. You should be using unbuffered Non-ECC DDR3 (1.5V) 1600/1333/1066 MHz
memory recommended by the manufacturer. Also, it is recommended that you
use the memory modules of the same type and speed for all DIMMs in the
system. Do not use memory modules of different sizes, different speeds and
different types on the same motherboard.
3. Check for bad DIMM modules or slots by swapping modules between slots to
see if you can locate the faulty ones.
4. Check the switch of 115V/230V power supply.
Losing the System’s Setup Configuration
1. Please be sure to use a high quality power supply. A poor quality power supply may cause the system to lose CMOS setup information. Refer to Section
1-6 for details on recommended power supplies.

3-3 Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What type of memory does my motherboard support?
Answer: The X10SAT supports up to 32GB of unbuffered Non-ECC DDR3 SDRAM
(1.5V, 1600/1333/1066 MHz). See Section 2-4 for details on installing memory.
Question: How do I update my BIOS?
Answer: We do NOT recommend that you upgrade your BIOS if you are not
experiencing any problems with your system. Updated BIOS files are located on
our website 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 ROM file to your
computer. Also, check the current BIOS revision to 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>
Note: 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., X10SAT) and build version as the
extension. For example, "X10SAT.115". 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.
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.
Warning: Do not shut down or reset the system while updating the BIOS to prevent
possible system boot failure!
Important: 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 at Supermicro for service.

B-2 Configuring SuperDoctor® III
The SuperDoctor III program is a Web-based management tool that supports remote
management capability. It includes Remote and Local Management tools. The local
management tool 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: The 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, SuperDoctor III adopts the
temperature threshold settings previously set in BIOS. Any subsequent changes
to these thresholds must be made within SuperDoctor, since the settings override the BIOS settings. For the Windows OS to adopt the BIOS temperature
threshold settings, please change the SD III Client settings to be the same as
those set in BIOS.

Appendix C: UEFI BIOS Recovery
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, hands-off control
to a computer system at bootup.
C-2 How to Recover the UEFI BIOS Image (the Main
BIOS Block)
A UEF BIOS flash chip consists of a recovery BIOS block, comprised of two boot
blocks and a main BIOS block (a main BIOS image). The boot block contains critical
BIOS codes, including memory detection and recovery codes for the user to flash
a new BIOS image if the original main BIOS image is corrupted. When the system
power is on, the boot block codes execute first. Once that 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 boot crashes. However, when the BIOS boot block
crashes, you will need to follow the procedures in Appendix D.
C-3 To Recover the Main BIOS Block Using a USBAttached 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
X10SAT 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 "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 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.
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.
C-2
Appendix C: UEFI BIOS Recovery
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.
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
BIOS Setup utility.

Appendix D: Dual Boot Block
Appendix D
Dual Boot Block
D-1 Introduction
This motherboard supports the Dual Boot Block feature, which is the last-ditch
mechanism to recover the BIOS boot block. This section provides an introduction
to the feature.
BIOS Boot Block
A BIOS boot block is the minimum BIOS loader required to enable necessary
hardware components for the BIOS crisis recovery flash that will update the main
BIOS block. An on-call BIOS boot-block corruption may occur due to a software
tool issue (see image below) or an unexpected power outage during BIOS updates.
BIOS Boot Block Corruption Occurrence
When a BIOS boot block is corrupted due to an unexpected power outage or a
software tool malfunctioning during BIOS updates, you can still reboot the system
by closing pins 2 and 3 using a cap on Jumper JBR1. When JBR1 is set to pins
2 and 3, the system will boot from a backup boot block pre-loaded in the BIOS by
the manufacturer.

X10SAT User’s Manual
D-2 Steps to Reboot the System by Using Jumper JBR1
1. Power down the system.
2. Close pins 2-3 on Jumper JBR1, and power on the system.
3. Follow the BIOS recovery SOP listed in the previous chapter (Appendix C).
4. After completing the steps above, power down the system.
5. Close pins 1-2 on Jumper JBR1, and power on the system.
