Safety information

Electrical safety

• To prevent electrical shock hazard, disconnect the power cable from the electrical outlet before relocating the system.

• When adding or removing devices to or from the system, ensure that the power cables for the devices are unplugged before the signal cables are connected. If possible, disconnect all power cables from the existing system before you add a device.

• Before connecting or removing signal cables from the motherboard, ensure that all power cables are unplugged.

• Seek professional assistance before using an adapter or extension cord. These devices could interrupt the grounding circuit.

• Ensure that your power supply is set to the correct voltage in your area. If you are not sure about the voltage of the electrical outlet you are using, contact your local power company.

• If the power supply is broken, do not try to fix it by yourself. Contact a qualified service technician or your retailer.

Product introduction

Motherboard overview

• Unplug the power cord from the wall socket before touching any component.

1

• Before handling components, use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safely grounded object or a metal object, such as the power supply case, to avoid damaging them due to static electricity.

• Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the ATX power supply is switched off or the power cord is detached from the power supply. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard, peripherals, or components.

• Unplug the power cord before installing or removing the motherboard. Failure to do so can cause you physical injury and damage to motherboard components.

This jumper allows you to enable or disable the Intel ® ME function. Set this jumper to pins 1-2 to enable (default) the Intel

®

ME function and to pins 2-3 to disable it.

Disable the Intel

®

ME function before updating it.

Clear RTC RAM (2-pin CLRTC)

This header allows you to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data of the system setup information such as date, time, and system passwords.

To erase the RTC RAM:

1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.

2. Use a metal object such as a screwdriver to short the two pins.

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.

If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and short the two pins again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After clearing the CMOS, reinstall the battery.

CPU and chassis fan connectors (4-pin CPU_FAN, 4-pin CHA_FAN )

Connect the fan cables to the fan connectors on the motherboard, ensuring that the black wire of each cable matches the ground pin of the connector.

Do not forget to connect the fan cables to the fan connectors. Insufficient air flow inside the system may damage the motherboard components. These are not jumpers! Do not place jumper caps on the fan connectors! The CPU_FAN connector supports a CPU fan of maximum 1A (12 W) fan power.

Unplug all power cables before installing the CPU.

• Ensure that you install the correct CPU designed for the LGA1151 socket only. DO

NOT install a CPU designed for LGA1150, LGA1155 and LGA1156 sockets on the

LGA1151 socket.

• 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.

• Keep the cap after installing the motherboard. ASUS will process Return Merchandise

Authorization (RMA) requests only if the motherboard comes with the cap on the

LGA1151 socket.

• The product warranty does not cover damage to the socket contacts resulting from incorrect CPU installation/removal, or misplacement/loss/incorrect removal of the PnP cap.

System memory

Overview

This motherboard comes with two Double Data Rate 4 (DDR4) Small Outline Dual Inline

Memory Module (SO-DIMM) sockets. The figure illustrates the location of the DDR4 SO-

DIMM sockets:

DIMM_A1

DIMM_B1

Channel

Channel A

Channel B

Sockets

DIMM_A1

DIMM_B1

• You may install varying memory sizes in Channel A and Channel B. The system maps the total size of the lower-sized channel for the dual-channel configuration. Any excess memory from the higher-sized channel is then mapped for single-channel operation.

• Always install the DIMMS with the same CAS Latency. For an optimum compatibility, we recommend that you install memory modules of the same version or data code

(D/C) from the same vendor. Check with the vendor to get the correct memory modules.

• When you install only one memory module, install it to DIMM_A1 slot for the motherboard to work properly.

• This motherboard supports 1.2V DDR4 DIMMs.

• Due to the memory address limitation on 32-bit Windows ® OS, when you install 4GB or more memory on the motherboard, the actual usable memory for the OS can be about 3GB or less. For effective use of memory, we recommend that you do any of the following:

- Use a maximum of 3 GB system memory if you are using a 32-bit Windows ® OS.

- Install a 64-bit Windows

®

OS if you want to install 4GB or more on the motherboard.

- For more details, refer to the Microsoft

®

support site at http://support.microsoft.
