System memory
2.4.1
Overview
The motherboard comes with six fully-buffered DIMM (FB-DIMM) sockets to
support 240-pin FB-DIMM modules. An FB-DIMM module has a different pin-out
from DDR2 DIMMs so you cannot install DDR2 DIMMs on an FB-DIMM socket.
Note that an FB-DIMM socket has an Advanced Memory Buffer (AMB) chip that
allows memory-to-CPU connection at gigabit speed.
DSBV-D
The figure illustrates the location of the FB-DIMM sockets:

Memory sparing technology
®
The Intel 5000V chipset supports the memory sparing technology. Refer to the
below sections:
Memory Sparing :
At configuration time, a DIMM rank is set aside to replace a defective DIMM rank.
When the error rate for a failing DIMM rank reaches a pre-determined threshold,
the memory sparing function will issue an interrupt and initiate a spare copy. At the
completion of the copy, the failing DIMM rank is disabled and the “spared” DIMM
rank will be used in its place. Refer to 4.4.2 Chipset Configuration and configure
the options of Branch 0 Rank Sparing to enable the memory sparing functions.
And the default BIOS setting is disabled.
•
The DIMM rank with the largest size will be assigned as spare rank. Data
can only be copied from a smaller sized rank to a larger sized one.
•
A DIMM can contain only one or two ranks. To support sparing function, a
DIMM channel should contain at least two ranks.
•
When sparing function is enabled, the usable memory size will reduce then
size of the spare ranks.
The following tables show memory configurrations with Memory Sparing function in
Branch 0.

by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery
powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such
as system passwords.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2.
Remove the onboard battery.
3.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap
on pins 2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
4.
Reinstall the battery.
5.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
6.
Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup
to re-enter data.

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable Low-Pin Count (LPC) chip that you
can update using the provided utility described in section “4.1 Managing and
updating your BIOS.”
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring
your system, or prompted to “Run Setup.” This section explains how to configure
your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you can change the
configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you can enable the
security password feature or change the power management settings. This
requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup program so that the
computer can recognize these changes and record them in the CMOS RAM of the
LPC chip.
The LPC chip on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start up the
computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program. Press
<Del> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility; otherwise,
POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing <Ctrl+Alt+Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can
also restart by turning the system off and then back on. Do this last option only if
the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being a
menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus and make
your selections from the available options using the navigation keys.

•
The default BIOS settings for this motherboard apply for most conditions
to ensure optimum performance. If the system becomes unstable after
changing any BIOS settings, load the default settings to ensure system
compatibility and stability. Select the Load Default Settings item under the
Exit Menu. See section “4.8 Exit Menu.”
•
The BIOS setup screens shown in this section are for reference purposes
only, and may not exactly match what you see on your screen.

5.1
Setting up RAID
The Intel® 6321ESB Southbridge chip comes with the LSI Logic Embedded SATA
RAID Utility and the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager. These utilities support SATA
hard disk drives and allow creation of RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1, or RAID 5 (Intel®
Matrix Storage Manager only) configuration.
5.1.1
RAID definitions
RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and write
data in parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same work as a
single drive but at a sustained data transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone,
thus improving data access and storage. Use of two new identical hard disk drives
is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one
drive to a second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management software
directs all applications to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of
the data in the other drive. This RAID configuration provides data protection and
increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use two new drives or use an
existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new drive must be of the same
size or larger than the existing drive.
RAID 5 stripes both data and parity information across three or more hard
disk drives. Among the advantages of RAID 5 configuration include better
HDD performance, fault tolerance, and higher storage capacity. The RAID
5 configuration is best suited for transaction processing, relational database
applications, enterprise resource planning, and other business systems. Use a
minimum of three identical hard disk drives for this setup.
RAID 0+1 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity (redundancy
data) having to be calculated and written. With the RAID 0+1 configuration you get
all the benefits of both RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations. Use four new hard disk
drives or use an existing drive and three new drives for this setup.
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a created RAID
set, copy first the RAID driver from the support CD to a floppy disk before you
install an operating system to the selected hard disk drive.
ASUS DSBV-D
5-
5.1.2
Installing hard disk drives
The motherboard supports Serial ATA for RAID set configuration. For optimal
performance, install identical drives of the same model and capacity when creating
a disk array.
To install the SATA hard disks for RAID configuration:
1.
Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays following the instructions in the
system user guide.
2.
Connect a SATA signal cable to the signal connector at the back of each drive
and to the SATA connector on the motherboard.
3.
Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive.
5.1.3
Setting the RAID item in BIOS
You must set the RAID item in the BIOS Setup before you can create a RAID set
from SATA hard disk drives attached to the SATA connectors supported by the Intel
®
6321ESB Southbridge chip. To do this:
1.
Enter the BIOS Setup during POST.
2.
Go to the Main Menu > IDE Configuration > S-ATA Configuration, then press
<Enter>.
3.
Set the SATA Controller Mode Option item to [Enhanced], then press <Enter>.
4.
Set the SATA RAID Enable item to [Enabled].
5.
Save your changes, then exit the BIOS Setup.
Refer to Chapter 4 for details on entering and navigating through the BIOS
Setup.
5.1.4
RAID configuration utilities
Depending on the RAID connectors that you use, you can create a RAID set using
the utilities embedded in each RAID controller. For example, use the LSI Logic
Embedded SATA RAID Setup Utility or the Intel® Matrix Storage Technology if you
installed Serial ATA hard disk drives on the Serial ATA connectors supported by the
Intel® 6321ESB Southbridge.
Refer to the succeeding sections for details on how to use each RAID configuration
utility.

Cannot flash if Memory Managers (e.g. EMM386) present
PRESS ANY KEY TO EXIT
If you see this message after you execute Phlash16, you must disable the
memory manager on your system. Follow the instructions in the Disabling memory
managers section in this chapter.
Because Phlash16.EXE may require the use of extended memory, it will not run
if it detects the presence of an extended-memory manager such as HIMEM.SYS,
EMM386, or QEMM. To avoid conflict with disk caching programs, the program
checks for VCPI, DPMI and XMS.
The program does not check for VDISK because MS-DOS 5 and later versions
do not support that server.
If the program detects any of these utilities, the program reports a failure and
terminates.
Disabling memory managers
To avoid failure when flashing, you must disable the memory managers that load
from CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT.
To disable the memory managers:
A-
1.
Boot from a bootable floppy disk created from MS-DOS 6.22.
2.
During the boot process, when the message "Press any key to continue" is
displayed, press <F5>.
3.
The message "MS-DOS is bypassing CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT
file" appears. The memory managers will then be disabled. Do not interrupt
the process.
4.
When done, flash the BIOS according to instructions in section "4.1.2
Updating the Phoenix Phlash16 Utility.
