Introduction
Features
Watchdog Timer
The Watchdog Timer function allows your application to regularly “clear” the system at the set time interval. If the system hangs or fails to function, it will reset
at the set time interval so that your system will continue to operate.
DDR3
DDR3 delivers increased system bandwidth and improved performance. It offers
peak data transfer rate of up to 21 Gb/s bandwidth. The advantages of DDR3
are its higher bandwidth and its increase in performance at a lower power than
DDR2.
Graphics
The integrated Intel HD graphics for graphics intensive applications delivers exceptional 3D, 2D and video capabilities. It supports VGA, DVI and LVDS interfaces.
DVI
DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a form of video interface technology made to
maximize the quality of flat panel LCD monitors and modern video graphics
cards. Data is transmitted using the TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signaling) protocol, providing a digital signal from the PC’s graphics subsystem to
the display.
PCI Express
PCI Express is a high bandwidth I/O infrastructure that possesses the ability to
scale speeds by forming multiple lanes. The PCI Express architecture provides a
high performance graphics infrastructure by enhancing the capability of a x16 PCI
Express lane to provide 4 Gigabytes per second transfer rate. Intel Active Management Technology (AMT)
Intel Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) allows remote access and management of networked systems even while PCs are powered off, remotely repair
systems after OS failures and has the capability to remotely update all systems
with the latest security software.
Audio
The Realtek ALC262 audio codec provides 2-channel High Definition audio output.

Serial ATA
Serial ATA is a storage interface that is compliant with SATA 1.0a specification. SATA 3.0 supports speed up to 6Gb/s while SATA 2.0 supports speed up to
3Gb/s. This improves hard drive performance faster than the standard parallel
ATA whose data transfer rate is 100MB/s. The board supports RAID 0/1/5/10.
Gigabit LAN
The Intel W82579LM PHY and Realtek RTL8111DL PCI Express Gigabit controllers
support up to 1Gbps data transmission.
CompactFlash
The CompactFlashTM socket is used for inserting a CompactFlashTM card. CompactFlashTM card is a small removable mass storage device designed with flash technology - a non-volatile storage solution that does not require a battery to retain
data indefinitely. The CompactFlashTM technology is widely used in products such
as portable and desktop computers, digital cameras, handheld data collection
scanners, PDAs, Pocket PCs, handy terminals and personal communicators.
USB
The system board supports USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 ports. USB 1.1 supports 12Mb/
second bandwidth while USB 2.0 supports 480Mb/second bandwidth providing a
marked improvement in device transfer speeds between your computer and a
wide range of simultaneously accessible external Plug and Play peripherals.
Wake-On-LAN
This feature allows the network to remotely wake up a Soft Power Down (SoftOff) PC. It is supported via the onboard LAN port or via a PCI LAN card that uses
the PCI PME (Power Management Event) signal. However, if your system is in the
Suspend mode, you can power-on the system only through an IRQ or DMA interrupt.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support
≥720mA.
Wake-On-PS/2
This function allows you to use the PS/2 keyboard or PS/2 mouse to power-on
the system.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support
≥720mA.

Introduction
Wake-On-USB
This function allows you to use a USB keyboard or USB mouse to wake up a system from the S3 (STR - Suspend To RAM) state.
Important:
If you are using the Wake-On-USB Keyboard/Mouse function for 2 USB
ports, the 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support
≥1.5A. For 3 or more USB ports, the 5V_standby power source of your
power supply must support ≥2A.
RTC Timer
The RTC installed on the system board allows your system to automatically power-on on the set date and time.
ACPI STR
The system board is designed to meet the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and
Power Interface) specification. ACPI has energy saving features that enables PCs
to implement Power Management and Plug-and-Play with operating systems that
support OS Direct Power Management. ACPI when enabled in the Power Management Setup will allow you to use the Suspend to RAM function.
With the Suspend to RAM function enabled, you can power-off the system at
once by pressing the power button or selecting “Standby” when you shut down
Windows® without having to go through the sometimes tiresome process of
closing files, applications and operating system. This is because the system is
capable of storing all programs and data files during the entire operating session
into RAM (Random Access Memory) when it powers-off. The operating session will
resume exactly where you left off the next time you power-on the system.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support
≥720mA.
Power Failure Recovery
When power returns after an AC power failure, you may choose to either poweron the system manually or let the system power-on automatically.

Installing the Fan and Heat Sink
The CPU must be kept cool by using a CPU fan with heat sink. Without sufficient
air circulation across the CPU and heat sink, the CPU will overheat damaging
both the CPU and system board.
Note:
• Use only certified fan and heat sink.
• Your fan and heat sink package usually contains the fan and heat sink
assembly, and an installation guide. If the installation procedure in the
installation guide differs from the one in this section, please follow the
installation guide in the package.
1. On the solder side of the board, match the retention module base to the
mounting holes around the CPU socket.
Retention module base
2. Turn to the component side of the board making sure the retention module
base is positioned and fitted properly under the board.
3. Apply a thin layer of thermal paste on top of the CPU. Do not spread the
paste all over the surface. When you later place the heat sink on top, the
compound will disperse evenly.

Hardware Installation
4. Place the fan / heat sink assembly on top of the CPU. The 4 screws around
the heat sink must match the screw holes of the retention module base. We
strongly recommend using this type of fan / heat sink assembly because it
provides adequate cooling to the components of the system board.
Turn each Phillips head screw half way down first to initially stabilize the heat
sink onto the board, then finally tighten each screw.
Important:
Do not turn the first screw all the way down followed by the next and so on.
This is to avoid imbalance which might cause cracks or fractures to the CPU
and/or heat sink assembly.

BIOS Setup

Chapter 3 - BIOS Setup
Overview
The BIOS is a program that takes care of the basic level of communication between the CPU and peripherals. It contains codes for various advanced features
found in this system board. The BIOS allows you to configure the system and
save the configuration in a battery-backed CMOS so that the data retains even
when the power is off. In general, the information stored in the CMOS RAM of
the EEPROM will stay unchanged unless a configuration change has been made
such as a hard drive replaced or a device added.
It is possible that the CMOS battery will fail causing CMOS data loss. If this happens, you need to install a new CMOS battery and reconfigure the BIOS settings.
Note:
The BIOS is constantly updated to improve the performance of the system board; therefore the BIOS screens in this chapter may not appear
the same as the actual one. These screens are for reference purpose
only.
Default Configuration
Most of the configuration settings are either predefined according to the Load Optimal Defaults settings which are stored in the BIOS or are automatically detected
and configured without requiring any actions. There are a few settings that you
may need to change depending on your system configuration.
Entering the BIOS Setup Utility
The BIOS Setup Utility can only be operated from the keyboard and all commands are keyboard commands. The commands are available at the right side of
each setup screen.
The BIOS Setup Utility does not require an operating system to run. After you
power up the system, the BIOS message appears on the screen and the memory
count begins. After the memory test, the message “Press DEL to run setup” will
appear on the screen. If the message disappears before you respond, restart the
system or press the “Reset” button. You may also restart the system by pressing
the <Ctrl> <Alt> and <Del> keys simultaneously.

RAID
Chapter 5 - RAID
The system board allows configuring RAID on Serial ATA drives. It supports RAID
0, RAID 1, RAID 5 and RAID 10.
RAID Levels
RAID 0 (Striped Disk Array without Fault Tolerance)
RAID 0 uses two new identical hard disk drives to read and write data in parallel,
interleaved stacks. Data is divided into stripes and each stripe is written alternately between two disk drives. This improves the I/O performance of the drives
at different channel; however it is not fault tolerant. A failed disk will result in
data loss in the disk array.
RAID 1 (Mirroring Disk Array with Fault Tolerance)
RAID 1 copies and maintains an identical image of the data from one drive to
the other drive. If a drive fails to function, the disk array management software
directs all applications to the other drive since it contains a complete copy of the
drive’s data. This enhances data protection and increases fault tolerance to the
entire system. Use two new drives or an existing drive and a new drive but the
size of the new drive must be the same or larger than the existing drive.
RAID 5
RAID 5 stripes data and parity information across hard drives. It is fault tolerant
and provides better hard drive performance and more storage capacity.
RAID 10 (Mirroring and Striping)
RAID 10 is a combination of data striping and data mirroring providing the benefits of both RAID 0 and RAID 1. Use four new drives or an existing drive and
three new drives for this configuration.
114
RAID
5
Settings
To enable the RAID function, the following settings are required.
1. Connect the Serial ATA drives.
2. Configure Serial ATA in the AMI BIOS.
3. Configure RAID in the RAID BIOS.
4. Install the RAID driver during OS installation.
5. Install the Intel Rapid Storage Drivers.
Step 1: Connect the Serial ATA Drives
Refer to chapter 2 for details on connecting the Serial ATA drives.
Important:
1. Make sure you have installed the Serial ATA drives and connected the
data cables otherwise you won’t be able to enter the RAID BIOS utility.
2. Treat the cables with extreme caution especially while creating RAID.
A damaged cable will ruin the entire installation process and operating system. The system will not boot and you will lost all data in the
hard drives. Please give special attention to this warning because
there is no way of recovering back the data.
Step 2: Configure Serial ATA in the AMI BIOS
1. Power-on the system then press <Del> to enter the main menu of the AMI
BIOS.
2. Configure Serial ATA in the appropriate fields.
3. Save the changes in the Save & Exit menu.
4. Reboot the system.
Step 3: Configure RAID in the RAID BIOS
When the system powers-up and all drives have been detected, the Intel RAID
BIOS status message screen will appear. Press the <Ctrl> and <I> keys simultaneously to enter the utility. The utility allows you to build a RAID system on
Serial ATA drives.
115
5
RAID
Step 4: Install the RAID Driver During OS Installation
The RAID driver must be installed during the Windows® XP or Windows® 2000 installation using the F6 installation method. This is required in order to install the
operating system onto a hard drive or RAID volume when in RAID mode or onto
a hard drive when in AHCI mode.
1. Start Windows Setup by booting from the installation CD.
2. Press <F6> when prompted in the status line with the ‘Press F6 if you need
to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver’ message.
3. Press <S> to “Specify Additional Device”.
4. At this point you will be prompted to insert a floppy disk containing the RAID
driver. Insert the RAID driver diskette.
5. Locate for the drive where you inserted the diskette then select RAID or AHCI
controller that corresponds to your BIOS setup. Press <Enter> to confirm.
You have successfully installed the driver. However you must continue installing
the OS. Leave the floppy disk in the floppy drive until the system reboots itself
because Windows setup will need to copy the files again from the floppy disk
to the Windows installation folders. After Windows setup has copied these files
again, remove the floppy diskette so that Windows setup can reboot as needed.
116
RAID
5
Step 5: Install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Utility
The Intel Rapid Storage Technology Utility can be installed from within Windows.
It allows RAID volume management (create, delete, migrate) from within the
operating system. It will also display useful SATA device and RAID volume information. The user interface, tray icon service and monitor service allow you to
monitor the current status of the RAID volume and/or SATA drives. It enables
enhanced performance and power management for the storage subsystem.
1. Insert the provided CD into an optical drive.
2. Click “Intel Rapid Storage Technology Utility” on the main menu.
3. Setup is ready to install
the utility. Click Next.
4. Read the warning carefully
then click Next.

Troubleshooting Checklist
This chapter of the manual is designed to help you with problems that you may
encounter with your personal computer. To efficiently troubleshoot your system,
treat each problem individually. This is to ensure an accurate diagnosis of the
problem in case a problem has multiple causes.
Some of the most common things to check when you encounter problems while
using your system are listed below.
1. The power switch of each peripheral device is turned on.
2. All cables and power cords are tightly connected.
3. The electrical outlet to which your peripheral devices are connected is working. Test the outlet by plugging in a lamp or other electrical device.
4. The monitor is turned on.
5. The display’s brightness and contrast controls are adjusted properly.
6. All add-in boards in the expansion slots are seated securely.
7. Any add-in board you have installed is designed for your system and is set
up correctly.
Monitor/Display
If the display screen remains dark after the system is turned on:
1. Make sure that the monitor’s power switch is on.
2. Check that one end of the monitor’s power cord is properly attached to the
monitor and the other end is plugged into a working AC outlet. If necessary,
try another outlet.
3. Check that the video input cable is properly attached to the monitor and the
system’s display adapter.
4. Adjust the brightness of the display by turning the monitor’s brightness control knob.
166
Troubleshooting
D
The picture seems to be constantly moving.
1. The monitor has lost its vertical sync. Adjust the monitor’s vertical sync.
2. Move away any objects, such as another monitor or fan, that may be creating
a magnetic field around the display.
3. Make sure your video card’s output frequencies are supported by this monitor.
The screen seems to be constantly wavering.
1. If the monitor is close to another monitor, the adjacent monitor may need
to be turned off. Fluorescent lights adjacent to the monitor may also cause
screen wavering.
Power Supply
When the computer is turned on, nothing happens.
1. Check that one end of the AC power cord is plugged into a live outlet and the
other end properly plugged into the back of the system.
2. Make sure that the voltage selection switch on the back panel is set for the
correct type of voltage you are using.
3. The power cord may have a “short” or “open”. Inspect the cord and install a
new one if necessary.
Floppy Drive
The computer cannot access the floppy drive.
1. The floppy diskette may not be formatted. Format the diskette and try again.
2. The diskette may be write-protected. Use a diskette that is not write-protected.
3. You may be writing to the wrong drive. Check the path statement to make
sure you are writing to the targeted drive.
4. There is not enough space left on the diskette. Use another diskette with adequate storage space.

Troubleshooting
Hard Drive
Hard disk failure.
1. Make sure the correct drive type for the hard disk drive has been entered in
the BIOS.
2. If the system is configured with two hard drives, make sure the bootable
(first) hard drive is configured as Master and the second hard drive is configured as Slave. The master hard drive must have an active/bootable partition.
Excessively long formatting period.
If your hard drive takes an excessively long period of time to format, it is likely a
cable connection problem. However, if your hard drive has a large capacity, it will
take a longer time to format.
Serial Port
The serial device (modem, printer) doesn’t output anything or is outputting garbled characters.
1. Make sure that the serial device’s power is turned on and that the device is
on-line.
2. Verify that the device is plugged into the correct serial port on the rear of the
computer.
3. Verify that the attached serial device works by attaching it to a serial port
that is working and configured correctly. If the serial device does not work,
either the cable or the serial device has a problem. If the serial device works,
the problem may be due to the onboard I/O or the address setting.
4. Make sure the COM settings and I/O address are configured correctly.
Keyboard
Nothing happens when a key on the keyboard was pressed.
1. Make sure the keyboard is properly connected.
2. Make sure there are no objects resting on the keyboard and that no keys are
pressed during the booting process.
168
Troubleshooting
D
System Board
1. Make sure the add-in card is seated securely in the expansion slot. If the
add-in card is loose, power off the system, re-install the card and power up
the system.
2. Check the jumper settings to ensure that the jumpers are properly set.
3. Verify that all memory modules are seated securely into the memory sockets.
4. Make sure the memory modules are in the correct locations.
5. If the board fails to function, place the board on a flat surface and seat all
socketed components. Gently press each component into the socket.
6. If you made changes to the BIOS settings, re-enter setup and load the BIOS
defaults.
