Central Processing Unit (CPU)
This server motherboard comes with a surface mount LGA1150 socket designed for the Intel®
Xeon® E3-1200 v3.
2.2.1
•
Upon purchase of the motherboard, ensure that the PnP cap is on the socket and
the socket contacts are not bent. Contact your retailer immediately if the PnP cap
is missing, or if you see any damage to the PnP cap/socket contacts/motherboard
components. ASUS will shoulder the cost of repair only if the damage is shipment/
transit-related.
•
Keep the PnP cap after installing the motherboard. ASUS will process Return
Merchandise Authorization (RMA) requests only if the motherboard comes with the
cap on the LGA1150 socket.
•
The product warranty does not cover damage to the socket contacts resulting from
incorrect CPU installation/removal, or a lost/improper removal of the PnP cap.
Installing the CPU
To install the CPU:
1.

System memory
2.3.1
Overview
The motherboard comes with four Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) Dual Inline Memory Modules
(DIMM) sockets.
A DDR3 module has the same physical dimensions as a DDR2 DIMM but is notched
differently to prevent installation on a DDR2 DIMM socket. DDR3 modules are developed for
better performance with less power consumption.
The figure illustrates the location of the DDR3 DIMM sockets:
2.3.2
Memory Configurations
You may install 2 GB, 4 GB, and 8 GB Unbuffered with ECC DDR3 DIMMs into the DIMM
sockets using the memory configurations in this section.

Jumpers
Clear RTC RAM (3-pin CLRTC1)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear
the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters 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.
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.
3.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4.
Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter
data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default position.
Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!
If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper again to clear
the CMOS RTC RAM data. After the CMOS clearance, reinstall the battery.

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware chip that you can update using the
provided utility described in section 5.1 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 firmware chip.
The firmware 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>+<Del>,
or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can also restart by turning the
system off 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.

Chapter 5: BIOS setup
This chapter provides instructions for setting
up, creating and configuring RAID sets using
the available utilities.
RAID configuration
Chapter 6
6.1
Setting up RAID
6.1.1
RAID definitions
The motherboards come with either an Intel® C224 controller (P9D-M) or Intel® C222 controller
(P9D-MV and P9D-MX) that supports Intel® Rapid Storage Technology enterprise Option
ROM Utility with RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, and RAID 5 support (for Windows® OS only).
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 10 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity (redundancy data) having
to be calculated and written. With the RAID 10 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.
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.
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a created RAID set, copy the
RAID driver first from the support DVD to a floppy disk before you install an operating system
to the selected hard disk drive.
6-2
Chapter 6: RAID configuration
6.1.2
Installing hard disk drives
The motherboards support 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
6.1.3
Setting Jumpers
Ensure to turn off power before setting the jumpers on the motherboard.
You must set the jumper settings of your motherboard to activate the embedded RAID utilities. To
set the jumper settings for Intel® Rapid Storage Technology enterprise Option ROM Utility,
set the 3-pin RAID_SEL1 jumper to pins 2-3.
For more information about the jumper settings of 3-pin RAID_SEL1, you may refer to the RAID
configuration utility section on page 2-28 of this user manual.
6.1.4
Setting the RAID mode in BIOS
You must set the RAID mode in the BIOS Setup to be able to launch the RAID utilities before
you can create a RAID set from the SATA hard disk drives attached to the SATA connectors.
To do this:
1.
Enter the BIOS Setup during POST.
2.
Go to the Advanced Menu > SATA Configuration, then press <Enter>.
3.
Set SATA Mode to [RAID].
4.
Press <F10> to save your changes and exit the BIOS Setup.
Refer to Chapter 4 for details on entering and navigating through the BIOS Setup.
6.1.5
RAID configuration utilities
Depending on the RAID connectors that you use, you can create a RAID set using the utilities
embedded on each RAID controller. The P9D-M Series motherboards support Intel® Rapid
Storage Technology for setting up RAID.
ASUS RS100-E8-PI2

Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise Option
ROM Utility
The Intel® Rapid Storage Technology enterprise Option ROM utility allows you to create RAID
0, RAID 1, RAID 10 (RAID 1+0), and RAID 5 set(s) from Serial ATA hard disk drives that are
connected to the Serial ATA connectors supported by the Southbridge.
Before you proceed, ensure that you have installed the Serial ATA hard disk drives, have
set the correct jumper settings of the motherboard, and have set the correct SATA mode in
the BIOS setup. You can refer to sections 5.1.2 Installing hard disk drives, 5.1.3 Setting
Jumpers, and 5.1.4 Setting the RAID mode in BIOS for more information.
To launch the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology enterprise Option ROM utility:
1.
Turn on the system.
2.
During POST, press <Ctrl+I> to display the utility main menu.
You may have to press <Ctrl>+<I> more than once to enter the main menu.
