Motherboard information
The AP1710-S5 comes with the ASUS PRL-DL motherboard that uses the
extended ATX form factor measuring 12 inches x 10.5 inches (30.5 x 26.67
cm).
Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing any
motherboard component or connection. Failure to do so may cause
you physical injury and may damage motherboard components.
The motherboard is secured in the chassis by nine (9) screws as indicated
by circles in the illustration below.

Central Processing Unit (CPU)
The motherboard comes with dual surface mount 604-pin Zero Insertion
Force (ZIF) sockets. The sockets are designed for the Intel® processors in
the 604-pin package with 512KB L2 cache. The processor includes the
Intel® NetBurst™ micro-architecture that features the hyper-pipelined
technology, rapid execution engine, 533/400MHz system bus, and
execution trace cache. Together, these attributes improve system
performance by allowing higher core frequencies, faster execution of
integer instructions, and data transfer rate of up to 4.26GB/s.

Chapter 2: Hardware setup
2.3.1 Installing the CPU
The motherboard supports either one or two CPUs. If you are installing
only one CPU, you MUST install it in CPU socket 1.
Follow these steps to install a CPU.
1. Locate the 604-pin ZIF sockets
on the motherboard. Unlock the
socket by pressing the lever
sideways, then lift it up to at least
115° angle.
Make sure that the socket lever is lifted up to at least 115° angle,
otherwise the CPU does not fit in completely.
2. Position the CPU above the
socket as shown.
3. Carefully insert the CPU into the
socket until it fits in place.
Marked Corner
The CPU fits only in one correct orientation. DO NOT force the CPU
into the socket to prevent bending the pins and damaging the CPU!
4. When the CPU is in place, press
it firmly on the socket while you
push down the socket lever to
secure the CPU. The lever clicks
on the side tab to indicate that it
is locked.
ASUS AP1710-S5 user guide

2.3.2 Installing the heatsink and fan
The Intel® Xeon™ processors require specially designed heatsink and fan
assembly to ensure optimum thermal condition and performance.
Make sure that the heatsink with fan assembly is properly installed on the
motherboard. A tilted or improperly installed heatsink and fan assembly
can cause damage to motherboard CPU socket and/or CPU. To install the
CPU heatsink and fan:
1. Place the heatsink with fan
assembly on top of the installed
CPU. Make sure it fits the screw
holes of the heatsink bracket at
the bottom of the CPU socket.
(The heatsink bracket is
pre-installed in the motherboard.)
2. Tighten all four (4) screws. Make
sure all screws fit properly in
place.
Take caution in tightening
screws. Do not over-tighten
screws, doing so may
damage the motherboard!
TIP: Follow the sequence shown:
half-tighten the screw on one
corner of the heatsink and fan,
then the next screw on the other
corner and so on, making a cross
pattern. Repeat until all four
screws are tightened properly.

Make sure heatsink with fan assembly is mounted properly on the CPU
to avoid burning the CPU and/or CPU socket.

Chapter 2: Hardware setup
3. When the heatsink and fan
assembly is in place, connect the
fan cable to the fan connector on
the motherboard labeled
CPUFAN1.
The fan cable plug is slotted
so it fits only in one
orientation. If it doesn’t fit
completely, try reversing it.
4. Make sure that the heatsink and
fan assembly is stable in place
and the fan power cable are
connected properly.
Don’t forget to connect the
CPU fan cable. Hardware
monitoring errors may occur
if you fail to plug the fan cable.
5. Repeat the same steps if you will
install another CPU in the
second CPU socket.
6. Use CPUFAN2 connector for the
second CPU heatsink and fan
assembly cable.

System memory
DDR4
DDR3
DDR2
DDR1
The motherboard comes with four Double Data Rate (DDR) Dual Inline
Memory Module (DIMM) sockets. These sockets support up to 4GB
system memory using 184-pin registered PC2100/PC1600 DIMMs with
Serial Presence Detect (SPD) and Error Check and Correction (ECC).
104 Pins
®
PRL-DL
80 Pins
PRL-DL 184-Pin DDR DIMM Sockets
A DDR DIMM is keyed with a notch so that it fits in only one direction.
DO NOT force a DIMM into a socket to avoid damaging the DIMM.
The DDR SDRAM technology evolved from the mainstream PC66, PC100,
PC133 memory known as Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM. DDR memory
however, has the ability to perform two data operations in one clock cycle,
thus providing twice the throughput of SDR memory. For example, a
200MHz DDR DIMM will support a 100MHz memory bus, and a 266MHz
DDR DIMM will support a 133MHz memory bus.
DDR Data Transfer Rate
DDR Base Frequency
266MHz
133MHz
200MHz
100MHz
A DDR DIMM has the same physical dimensions as an SDR DIMM, but it
has a 184-pin footprint compared to the 168-pin of the SDR DIMM. Also, a
DDR DIMM is single notched while an SDR DIMM is double notched.
Therefore, a DDR DIMM is not backward compatible with SDR, and should
be installed only in a socket specially designed for DDR DIMMs.

2.4.2 Installing a DIMM
Make sure to unplug the power supply before adding or removing
DIMMs or other system components. Failure to do so may cause
severe damage to both the motherboard and the components.
Follow these steps to install a DIMM.
1. Unlock a DIMM socket by
pressing the retaining clips
outward.
2. Align a DIMM on the socket such
that the notch on the DIMM
matches the break on the socket.
Unlocked Retaining Clip
3. Firmly insert the DIMM into the
socket until the retaining clips
snap back in place and the DIMM
is properly seated.

2.4.3 Removing a DIMM
Follow these steps to remove a DIMM.
1. Press the retaining clips outward
simultaneously to unlock the
DIMM.
2. Remove the DIMM from the
socket.
Support the DIMM lightly with your fingers when pressing the retaining
clips. The DIMM might get damaged when it flips out with extra force.

5.25-inch drives
If you have previously used and powered up the system, and that it
may be connected to an AC power source, make sure to unplug the
power cable before installing or removing any system components.
Failure to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard and
other system components!
Three 5.25-inch drive bays are
located on the upper front part of the
chassis. A CD-ROM drive that comes
standard with the system package
occupies the uppermost bay (labeled

2.5.1 Removing the front panel assembly
Before you can install a 5.25-inch drive, you should first remove the
front panel assembly (front bezel and front panel cover). The front
panel assembly is attached to the chassis through four hooked tabs
on the left side and four hinge-like tabs on the right side.
To remove the front panel assembly:
1. Use a flat-head screwdriver to detach the hooked tabs from the left
side of the front panel.

2.8.1 Motherboard connections
The AP1710-S5 chassis includes the power and signal cables that you
need to connect to the motherboard, SCSI backplane and to the devices
that you will install.
Most of the cables for the chassis kit are already connected upon
shipment. When installing system devices and connecting cables,
make sure that all cables are routed properly for better system stability
and performance. Refer to the picture below when arranging cables.

The SCSI backplane has six 68-pin SCSI connectors to support SCA SCSI
hard disks. The backplane design incorporates a hot-swap feature to allow
easy connection or removal of SCSI hard disks. The LED connectors on
the backplane connect to the front panel LEDs to indicate HDD access,
HDD failure, thermal failure, or fan failure.
