EVGA Classified SR-2 Motherboard
Preparing the Motherboard
The motherboard shipped in the box does not contain a CPU or memory. You
need to purchase these to complete the installation.
Installing the CPU
Be very careful when handling the CPU. Make
sure not to bend or break any pins inside the
socket. Hold the processor only by the edges
and do not touch the bottom of the processor.
Use the following procedure to install the
CPU onto the motherboard.**
**Please ensure that with single processor
usage you are using CPU socket 0 and the adjacent ram bank.
1.
Unhook the socket lever by pushing down and away from the socket.
2.
Put your finger on the tail of the load
plate and press the tail down
3.
Lift the load plate. There is a protective
socket cover in the socket to protect the
socket when there is no CPU installed.
4.
Remove the protective socket cover from
the CPU Socket.
Remove the processor from its protective
cover, making sure you hold it only by the
edges. It is a good idea to save the cover
so that whenever you remove the CPU,
you have a safe place to store it.
19
5.
Align the notches of the socket with
the notches on the cpu.
6.
Lower the processor straight down
into the socket without tilting or
sliding it into the socket
Make sure the CPU is fully seated and
level in the socket.
7.
Close the load plate over the CPU and
press down while you close and
engage the socket lever.
8.
The CPU installation is complete.
Align notches with notches on the CPU
Installing the CPU Fan
There are many different fan types that can be used with this motherboard.
Follow the instruction that came with your fan assembly. Be sure that the fan
orientation is correct for your chassis type and your fan assembly.
20
EVGA Classified SR-2 Motherboard
Installing DIMMs
Your new motherboard has twelve (12) 240-pin slots for DDR3 DIMMs
(ECC or Non ECC). They are arranged in two (2) sets of Six (6) slots each.
These slots support 1Gb, 2Gb, and 4Gb DDR3 technology. There must be
at least one DIMM slot populated in each bank to ensure normal operation.
Use the following recommendations for installing DIMMs. (See Figure 1 on
page16 for the location of the DIMM slots.)

One DIMM: If using 1 DIMM (Single Channel), install into: DIMM slot
1.

Two or Four DIMMs: If using 2 DIMMs (Dual Channel), install into:
DIMM slots 1 and 3. If using 4 DIMMs (Dual Channel), install into:
DIMM slots 2, 1, 4, and 3.

Three DIMMs: If using 3 DIMMs (Triple Channel), install into: DIMM
slots 1, 3 and 5.

Six DIMMs: If using more than 4 DIMMs, use: DIMM slots 2, 1, 4, and
3 then proceed to occupy the following DIMM slots in this order: 6 and 5.
DIMM Slot 2
DIMM Slot 1
DIMM Slot 4
DIMM Slot 3
DIMM Slot 6
DIMM Slot 5
Use the following procedure to install DIMMs. Note that there is only one
gap near the center of the DIMM slot. This slot matches the slot on the
DIMM to ensure the component is installed properly.
1.
Unlock a DIMM slot by pressing the module clips outward.
2.
Align the memory module to the DIMM slot, and insert the module
vertically into the DIMM slot. The plastic clips at both sides of the
DIMM slot automatically lock the DIMM into the connector.
21
Installing the Motherboard
The sequence of installing the motherboard into the chassis depends on the
chassis you are using and if you are replacing an existing motherboard or
working with an empty chassis. Determine if it would be easier to make all the
connections prior to this step or to secure the motherboard and then make all
the connections. It is normally easier to secure the motherboard first.
Use the following procedure to install the I/O shield and secure the
motherboard into the chassis.
Be sure that the CPU fan assembly has enough clearance for the chassis
covers to lock into place and for the expansion cards. Also make sure the
CPU Fan assembly is aligned with the vents on the covers.
Installing the I/O Shield
The motherboard kit comes with an I/O shield that is used to block radio
frequency transmissions, protects internal components from dust and foreign
objects, and promotes correct airflow within the chassis.
Before installing the motherboard, install the I/O shield from the inside of the
chassis. Press the I/O shield into place and make sure it fits securely. If the
I/O shield does not fit into the chassis, you would need to obtain the proper
size from the chassis supplier.
22
EVGA Classified SR-2 Motherboard
Securing the Motherboard into the Chassis
Most computer chassis have a base with mounting studs or spacers to allow
the motherboard to be secured to the chassis and help to prevent short
circuits. If there are studs that do not align with a mounting hole on the
motherboard, it is recommended that you remove that stud to prevent the
possibility of a short circuit. In most cases, it is recommended to secure the
motherboard using a minimum of nine (9) spacers.
1.
Carefully place the motherboard onto the studs/spacers located inside the
chassis.
2.
Align the mounting holes with the studs/spacers.
3.
Align the connectors to the I/O shield.
4.
Ensure that the fan assembly is aligned with the chassis vents according
to the fan assembly instruction.
5.
Secure the motherboard with a minimum of nine screws.

Jumper Settings
PCI-E Disable Jumper
For the ease of troubleshooting multiple graphics cards or testing an
individual graphics card’s overclocking, EVGA has implemented seven
jumpers you can use to disable individual PCI-E slots. You don’t need to
remove any of your graphics cards but simply disable the slot the particular
card is in.
JPE1
JPE3
JPE5
JPE7
JPE2
JPE4
JPE6
You see the location of the 7 jumpers in the above diagram. They are
located right above the 24-pin ATX Connector. In default shipping
configurations, all slots are enabled with the jumpers in the left position.
From top to bottom, PCI-E slots 1, 3, 5, 7, 2, 4, 6 respectively. To disable a
PCI-E lot, move the jumper over to the right position.
Example: Remove the Jumper cap of JPE2, PCI-E Slot 2 is disabled while
the rest are enabled. The PCI-E Disable Function can also be extended
onto the EVGA Control Panel (ECP).
Do this when the PC is turned off, NOT while it is running!
37
CPU Disable Jumper
For the ease of troubleshooting Dual CPUs or testing an individual CPU’s
overclocking, EVGA has implemented two jumpers you can use to disable
individual CPUs. You don’t need to remove any of your CPUs but simply
disable the particular CPU.
You see the location of the 2 jumpers in the above diagram. They are
located at the middle top of the Motherboard. In default shipping
configurations, all CPUs are enabled with the jumpers in the left position.
CPU0 Jumper is on top while CPU1 Jumper is below. To disable a CPU,
move the jumper over to the right position.
Example: Remove the Jumper cap of CPU0, CPU0 is disabled while CPU1
is enabled. The CPU Disable Function can also be extended onto the
EVGA Control Panel (ECP).
Do this when the PC is turned off, NOT while it is running!
38

EVGA Control Panel (On select models)
For the convenience of users, EVGA has designed an easy to access control
panel:
To use the ECP, simply hook up the black ECP cable to the motherboard’s
P80P connector at this location, the bottom right corner:
The cable should fit into the area high-lighted in green. It doesn’t matter which
end of the cable is used. The cable header is designed so that there is only one
direction the cable can be connected to the header.
40
EVGA Classified SR-2 Motherboard
The other end of the cable should be connected to the ECP as shown:
**Before turning on the PC, please check to see that the CPU VCore
Booster is in the Off position (clicked up).**
If you wish to access the PCI-E Disable Function via the ECP, please follow
these instructions.
Locate the PCI-E disable jumpers below:
41
Remove the top 4 jumpers.
Connect the PCI-E cable with the red wires occupying the left most pins:
Please remember to do this when the PC is not running.
Next, connect the other end of PCI-E enable/disable cable onto the ECP as
shown:
42
EVGA Classified SR-2 Motherboard
The red wires should be occupying the pins on the top row.
Now, access the Disable/Enable Function at the front of the Control Panel:
From right to left, the PCI-E Disable will disable slots 1, 3, 5, 7. When jumper
is in top position, PCI-E slot is enabled. When in bottom position PCI-E slot is
disabled.
CPU Disable Jumper
To extend the CPU Disable function to the ECP:
Locate this top part of the Motherboard:
43
Remove the 2 jumpers.
Connect the remaining 3x2 cable connector here, with the red wires on the top
row:
44
EVGA Classified SR-2 Motherboard
Now, access the Disable/Enable Function at the front of the Control Panel:
45
From right to left, the CPU Disable jumpers will disable CPU0, CPU1. When
jumper is in top position, CPU is enabled. When in bottom position CPU is
disabled.
CPU VCore Booster
For convenience of users when overclocking, the ECP houses 2 CPU VCore
Boosters for real-time boost of CPU VCore. Each button boosts the VCore by
+0.1v to its respective CPU. The last or 3rd button in line is a fan boost to
100% when depressed.
The red LED will light up when VCore booster is pressed. When one red LED
is lit, VCore is boosted by +0.1v for that CPU. When 2 red LEDs are lit, VCore
is boosted by +0.1v to both CPU’s. To disable the VCore boost, just press again
and VCore will go down to what you have set in the BIOS.
100% fan speed
The third button is the 100% fan speed button. When pressed it will run all
BIOS controlled fans at full speed effectively bypassing any automatic fan
control.
