Chapter 2 Installation
his is an EATX form factor motherboard. Before you install the motherboard,
study the coniguration of your chassis to ensure that the motherboard its 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,
English
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.
17
2.1 Installing the CPU
1. Before you insert the 2011-3-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.
CAUTION:
Please note that X99 platform is only compatible with the LGA 2011-3 socket, which is
incompatible with the LGA 2011 socket (for X79 platform).

2.3 Installation of Memory Modules (DIMM)
his motherboard provides eight 288-pin DDR4 (Double Data Rate 4) DIMM slots, and
supports Quad Channel Memory Technology.
1. For quad channel coniguration, you always need to install identical (the same brand,
speed, size and chip-type) DDR4 DIMM pairs.
2. 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.
3. he DIMM only its in one correct orientation. It will cause permanent damage to the
motherboard and the DIMM if you force the DIMM into the slot at incorrect orientation.

above are fully installed, and you want to use more than four memory modules, please
install the other memory modules from let to right (from DDR4_A2, DDR4_B2,
DDR4_D2 to DDR4_C2.)
• If only two memory modules are installed in the DDR4 DIMM slots, then Dual
Channel Memory Technology is activated. If three memory modules are installed, then
Triple Channel Memory Technology is activated. If more than four memory modules
are installed in the DDR4 DIMM slots, then Quad Channel Memory Technology is
activated.

2.4 Expansion Slots (PCI Express Slots)
here are 5 PCI Express slots on the motherboard.
Before installing an expansion card, please make sure that the power supply is switched of
or the power cord is unplugged. Please read the documentation of the expansion card and
make necessary hardware settings for the card before you start the installation.
PCIe slots:

2.5 Jumpers Setup
he illustration shows how jumpers are setup. When the jumper cap is placed on
the pins, the jumper is “Short”. If no jumper cap is placed on the pins, the jumper
is “Open”. he illustration shows a 3-pin jumper whose pin1 and pin2 are “Short”
when a jumper cap is placed on these 2 pins.
Clear CMOS Jumper
(CLRCMOS1)
(see p.12, No. 38)
Default
Clear CMOS
CLRCMOS1 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. To clear and reset the system
parameters to default setup, please turn of the computer and unplug the power
cord from the power supply. Ater waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to
short pin2 and pin3 on CLRCMOS1 for 5 seconds. However, please do not clear
the CMOS right ater you update the BIOS. If you need to clear the CMOS when
you just inish updating the BIOS, you must boot up the system irst, and then shut
it down before you do the clear-CMOS action. Please be noted that the password,
date, time, and user default proile will be cleared only if the CMOS battery is
removed.

2.12 HDD Saver Cable Installation Guide
The HDD Saver Connector on this motherboard allows you to switch on and off the
connected HDDs via sotware when needed. his design secures more privacy, saves more
energy, and extends the HDDs' lifespans. Please follow the steps below to install the HDD
Saver Cable.

SATA data cable
*he diagram shown here is for reference only.
1. Connect one end of the HDD Saver Cable to the HDD Saver Connector (SATA_
PWR_1) placed near the SATA ports. hen connect the SATA power connector(s) to
your SATA HDD(s).
* he HDD Saver Connector supports up to two SATA HDDs.
2. Connect one end of the SATA data cable to a SATA port on the motherboard. hen
connect the other end to your SATA HDD(s).

2.13 Dual LAN and Teaming Operation Guide
Dual LAN with Teaming enabled on this motherboard allows two single
connections to act as one single connection for twice the transmission bandwidth,
making data transmission more efective and improving the quality of transmission
of distant images. Fault tolerance on the dual LAN network prevents network
downtime by transferring the workload from a failed port to a working port.
he speed of transmission is subject to the actual network environment or status even with
Teaming enabled.
Before setting up Teaming, please make sure whether your Switch (or Router)
supports Teaming (IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation). You can specify a preferred
adapter in Intel PROSet. Under normal conditions, the Primary adapter handles all
non-TCP/IP traic. he Secondary adapter will receive fallback traic if the primary
fails. If the Preferred Primary adapter fails, but is later restored to an active status,
control is automatically switched back to the Preferred Primary adapter.
Step 1
From Device Manager, open the properties of a team.
Step 2
Click the Settings tab.
Step 3
Click the Modify Team button.
Step 4
Select the adapter you want to be the primary adapter and click the Set Primary
button.
If you do not specify a preferred primary adapter, the sotware will choose an
adapter of the highest capability (model and speed) to act as the default primary. If
a failover occurs, another adapter becomes the primary. he adapter will, however,
rejoin the team as a non-primary.
