NOTE: Please refer to our website for the latest specifications.
This motherboard supports Wake from on Board LAN. To use this function, please make
sure that the “Wake on Magic Packet from power off state” is enabled in Device Manager
> Intel® Ethernet Connection > Power Management. And the “PCI Devices Power On” is
enabled in UEFI SETUP UTILITY > Advanced > ACPI Configuration. After that, onboard
LAN1&2 can wake up S5 under OS.
If you install Intel® LAN utility or Marvell SATA utility, this motherboard may fail Windows® Hardware Quality Lab (WHQL) certification tests. If you install the drivers only, it
will pass the WHQL tests.

Chapter 2 Installation
This is a mini ITX form factor (6.7'' x 6.7'', 17.02 cm x 17.02 cm) motherboard. Before
you install the motherboard, study the configuration of your chassis to ensure that the
motherboard fits into it.
Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing the motherboard. Failure
to do so may cause physical injuries to you and damages to motherboard components.
2.1 Screw Holes
Place screws into the holes indicated by circles to secure the motherboard to the chassis.
Do not over-tighten the screws! Doing so may damage the motherboard.
2.2 Pre-installation Precautions
Take note of the following precautions before you install motherboard components or
change any motherboard settings.
1. Unplug the power cord from the wall socket before touching any components.
2. To avoid damaging the motherboard’s components due to static electricity, NEVER
place your motherboard directly on the carpet or the like. Also remember to use a
grounded wrist strap or touch a safety grounded object before you handle the components.
3. Hold components by the edges and do not touch the ICs.
4. Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded anti-static pad or in
the bag that comes with the component.
5. When placing screws into the screw holes to secure the motherboard to the chassis,
please do not over-tighten the screws! Doing so may damage the motherboard.
English
Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the power is switched off or the
power cord is detached from the power supply. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to

2.3 Installing the CPU
1. B
efore you insert the 1151-Pin CPU into the socket, please check if the PnP cap is on the
socket, if the CPU surface is unclean, or if there are any bent pins in the socket. Do not
force to insert the CPU into the socket if above situation is found. Otherwise, the CPU
will be seriously damaged.
2. Unplug all power cables before installing the CPU.

2.10 Dua LAN and Teaming Operation Guide
Dual LAN with Teaming enabled on this motherboard allows two single
connections to act as one single connection(s) for twice the transmission
bandwidth, making data transmission more effective and improving the quality of
transmission of distant images. Fault tolerance on the dual LAN network prevents
network downtime by transferring the workload from a failed port to a working
port.
The speed of transmission is subject to the actual network environment or status even with
Teaming enabled.
Before setting up Teaming, please make sure whether your Switch (or Router)
supports Teaming (IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation). You can specify a preferred
adapter in Intel PROSet. Under normal conditions, the Primary adapter handles all
non-TCP/IP traffic. The Secondary adapter will receive fallback traffic if the primary
fails. If the Preferred Primary adapter fails, but is later restored to an active status,
control is automatically switched back to the Preferred Primary adapter.
Step 1
From Device Manager, open the properties of a team.
Step 2
Click the Settings tab.
Step 3
Click the Modify Team button.
Step 4
Select the adapter you want to be the primary adapter and click the Set Primary
button.
English
If you do not specify a preferred primary adapter, the software will choose an
adapter of the highest capability (model and speed) to act as the default primary. If
a failover occurs, another adapter becomes the primary. The adapter will, however,
rejoin the team as a non-primary.

2.11 M.2_SSD (NGFF) Module Installation Guide
The M.2, also known as the Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF), is a small size and
versatile card edge connector that aims to replace mPCIe and mSATA. The Ultra M.2
Socket (M2_1) supports a M.2 SATA3 6.0 Gb/s module or a M.2 PCI Express module up to
Gen 3 x4 (32Gb/s).
*The M.2 slot (M2_1) is shared with the SATA_0 connector. When M2_1 is populated with a M.2 SATA3 module, SATA_0 is disabled.
Installing the M.2_SSD (NGFF) Module
Step 1
Prepare a M.2_SSD (NGFF) module
and the screw.
Step 2
Peel off the yellow protective film on
the nut to be used. Hand tighten the
standoff into the nut location on the
motherboard.
