X10SRM-F/-TF User Manual
1.2Processor and Chipset Overview
Built upon the functionality and capability of the Intel® Xeon® E5-1600/E5-2600 v3/v4
series processors (Socket R3) and the Intel C612 PCH, the X10SRM-F/-TF motherboard
provides system performance, power efficiency, and feature sets to address the needs of
next-generation computer users.
With the support of the new Intel® Microarchitecture 22nm Process Technology, the X10SRMF/-TF dramatically increases system performance for a multitude of server applications.
The PCH C612 chip provides Enterprise SMbus support, including the following features:
•DDR4 288-pin memory support on Socket R3
•Hybrid clock support capable of extending to most 2S platforms
•Support for Management Engine (ME)
•Support of SMBus speeds of up to 400KHz for BMC connectivity
•Improved I/O capabilities to high-storage-capacity configurations
•SPI Enhancements
•Intel®
Node Manager 3.0 for advanced power monitoring, capping and management for
BMC enhancement (see note below).
•BMC supports remote management, virtualization, and the security package for enterprise
platforms
Note: Note Manager support depends on the power supply used in your system.
1.3Special Features
Recovery from AC Power Loss
The Basic I/O System (BIOS) provides a setting that determines how the system will respond
when AC power is lost and then restored to the system. You can choose for the system to
remain powered off (in which case you must press the power switch to turn it back on), or
for it to automatically return to the power-on state. See the Advanced BIOS Setup section
for this setting. The default setting is Last State
20
Chapter 1: Introduction
1.4System Health Monitoring
Onboard Voltage Monitors
An onboard voltage monitor will scan the voltages of onboard chipset, memory, CPU, and
battery continuously. Once a voltage becomes unstable, a warning is given, or an error
message is sent to the screen. The user can adjust the voltage thresholds to define the
sensitivity of the voltage monitor.
Fan Status Monitor with Firmware Control
The system health monitor embedded in the BMC chip can check the RPM status of the
cooling fans. The CPU and chassis fans are controlled via lPMI.
Environmental Temperature Control
System Health sensors monitor temperatures and voltage settings of onboard processors
and the system in real time via the IPMI interface. Whenever the temperature of the CPU or
the system exceeds a user-defined threshold, system/CPU cooling fans will be turned on to
prevent the CPU or the system from overheating
Note: To avoid possible system overheating, please be sure to provide adequate airflow to your system.
System Resource Alert
This feature is available when used with SuperDoctor 5® in the Windows OS or in the Linux
environment. SuperDoctor is used to notify the user of certain system events. For example,
you can configure SuperDoctor to provide you with warnings when the system temperature,
CPU temperatures, voltages and fan speeds go beyond a predefined range.
1.5ACPI Features
ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface. The ACPI specification defines
a flexible and abstract hardware interface that provides a standard way to integrate power
management features throughout a computer system, including its hardware, operating
system and application software. This enables the system to automatically turn on and off
peripherals such as CD-ROMs, network cards, hard disk drives and printers.
In addition to enabling operating system-directed power management, ACPI also provides a
generic system event mechanism for Plug and Play, and an operating system-independent
interface for configuration control. ACPI leverages the Plug and Play BIOS data structures,
while providing a processor architecture-independent implementation that is compatible with
Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 2012 Operating Systems.

X10SRM-F/-TF User Manual
1.6Power Supply
As with all computer products, a stable power source is necessary for proper and reliable
operation. It is even more important for processors that have high CPU clock rates.
The X10SRM-F-/-TF motherboard accommodates 24-pin ATX power supplies with 8-pin (Pin
1 ~ Pin 4 is GND; Pin 5 ~ Pin 8 is +12V main power) connections, or power supplies with
only 8-pin (Pin 1 ~ Pin 4 is GND; Pin 5 ~ Pin 8 is +12V standby power) connections.
Although most power supplies generally meet the specifications required by the CPU, some
are inadequate.
Warning: To avoid damaging the power supply or the motherboard, be sure to use a
power supply that contains a 24-pin and an 8-pin power connector, or only an 8-pin
power connector. You may either connect the power supply to both the 24-pin power
connector (JPW1) and the 8-pin power connector (JPV1) on the motherboard, or only
the 8-pin power connector.
It is strongly recommended that you use a high quality power supply that meets ATX power
supply Specification 2.02 or above. It must also be SSI compliant. (For more information,
please refer to the website at http://www.ssiforum.org/). Additionally, in areas where noisy
power transmission is present, you may choose to install a line filter to shield the computer
from noise. It is recommended that you also install a power surge protector to help avoid
problems caused by power surges.
1.7Serial Port
The X10SRM-F/-TF motherboard supports two serial communication connections. COM Ports
1 and 2 can be used for input/output. The UART provides legacy speeds with a baud rate of
up to 115.2 Kbps as well as an advanced speed with baud rates of 250 K, 500 K, or 1 Mb/s,
which support high-speed serial communication devices.115.2 Kbps as well as an advanced
speed with baud rates of 250 K, 500 K, or 1 Mb/s, which support higher speed modems.

2.1Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic com­ponents. To avoid damaging your
system board, it is important to handle it very carefully. The following measures are generally
sufficient to protect your equipment from ESD.
Precautions
•Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
•Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic bag.
•Handle the motherboard by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips,
memory modules or gold contacts.
•When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
•Put the motherboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in use.
•For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent conductivity
between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and the motherboard.
•Use
only the correct type of onboard CMOS battery. Do not install the onboard battery
upside down to avoid possible explosion.
Unpacking
The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When unpacking
the motherboard, make sure that the person handling it is static protected.

2.2Motherboard Installation
All motherboards have standard mounting holes to fit different types of chassis. Make sure
that the locations of all the mounting holes for both the motherboard and the chassis match.
Although a chassis may have both plastic and metal mounting fasteners, metal ones are
highly recommended because they ground the motherboard to the chassis. Make sure that
the metal standoffs click in or are screwed in tightly. Then use a screwdriver to secure the
motherboard onto the motherboard tray.

SATA Ports
Six SATA 3.0 ports are located on the X10SRM-F/-TF motherboard, supported by the Intel
C612 PCH chip. These SATA ports support RAID 0, 1, and 10. SATA ports provide serial-link
signal connections, which are faster than the connections of Parallel ATA. Refer to the tables
below for pin definitions.
Note 1: I-SATA4 and I-SATA5 are Supermicro SuperDOMs. These are yellow SATADOM connectors with power pins built in and do not require separate external power
cables. These connectors are backwards-compatible with non-Supermicro SATADOMS
that require an external power supply.
Note 2: For more information on the SATA HostRAID configuration, please refer to the
Intel SATA HostRAID user's guide posted on our website at http://www.supermicro.com.

2.8Jumper Settings
How Jumpers Work
To modify the operation of the motherboard, jumpers can be used to choose between optional
settings. Jumpers create shorts between two pins to change the function of the connector.
Pin 1 is identified with a square solder pad on the printed circuit board. See the diagram
below for an example of jumping pins 1 and 2. Refer to the motherboard layout page for
jumper locations.
Note: On two-pin jumpers, "Closed" means the jumper is on and "Open" means the
jumper is off the pins.

CMOS Clear
JBT1 is used to clear the CMOS. Instead of pins, this "jumper" consists of contact pads to
prevent accidental clearing of the CMOS. To clear the CMOS, use a metal object such as a
small screwdriver to touch both pads at the same time to short the connection.
Note: Be sure to completely shut down the system, and then short JBT1 to clear the
CMOS.

67
X10SRM-F/-TF User Manual
No Video
1. If the power is on and LE6 is green but you have no video, remove all add-on cards and
cables.
2. Use the speaker to determine if any beep codes are present. Refer to Appendix A for
details on beep codes.
3. Remove all memory modules and turn on the system (if the alarm is on, check the
specs of memory modules, reset the memory or try a different one).
System Boot Failure
If the system does not display POST (Power-On-Self-Test) or does not respond after the
power is turned on, check the following:
1. Check for any error beep from the motherboard speaker.
•If there is no error beep, try to turn on the system without DIMM modules installed. If there
is still no error beep, replace the motherboard.
•If there are error beeps, clear the CMOS settings by unplugging the power cord and contacting both pads on the CMOS clear jumper (JBT1). Refer to Section 2-8 in Chapter 2.
2. Remove all components from the motherboard, especially the DIMM modules. Make
sure that system power is on and that memory error beeps are activated.
3. Turn on the system with only one DIMM module installed. If the system boots, check for
bad DIMM modules or slots by following the Memory Errors Troubleshooting procedure
in this chapter.
Memory Errors
When a no-memory beep code is issued by the system, check the following:
1. Make sure that the memory modules are compatible with the system and that the
DIMMs are properly and fully installed. (For memory compatibility, refer to the memory
compatibility chart posted on our website at http://www.supermicro.com.)
2. Check if different speeds of DIMMs have been installed. It is strongly recommended that
you use the same RAM type and speed for all DIMMs in the system.
3. Make sure that you are using the correct type of ECC DDR4 modules recommended by
the manufacturer.
4. Check for bad DIMM modules or slots by swapping a single module among all memory
slots and check the results.
68
Chapter 3: Troubleshooting
5. Make sure that all memory modules are fully seated in their slots. Follow the instructions
given in Section 2-4 in Chapter 2.
6. Please follow the instructions given in the DIMM population tables listed in Section 2-4
to install your memory modules.
Losing the System's Setup Configuration
1. Make sure that you are using a high-quality power supply. A poor-quality power supply
may cause the system to lose the CMOS setup information. Refer to Chapter 2 for
details on recommended power supplies.
2. The battery on your motherboard may be old. Check to verify that it still supplies
~3VDC. If it does not, replace it with a new one.
3. If the above steps do not fix the setup configuration problem, contact your vendor for
repairs.
When the System Becomes Unstable
A. If the system becomes unstable during or after OS installation, check the following:
1. CPU/BIOS support: Make sure that your CPU is supported and that you have the latest
BIOS installed in your system.
2. Memory support: Make sure that the memory modules are supported by testing the
modules using memtest86 or a similar utility.
Note: Refer to the product page on our website at http:\\www.supermicro.com for
memory and CPU support and updates.
3. HDD support: Make sure that all hard disk drives (HDDs) work properly. Replace the
bad HDDs with good ones.
4. System cooling: Check the system cooling to make sure that all heatsink fans and CPU/
system fans, etc., work properly. Check the hardware monitoring settings in the IPMI
to make sure that the CPU and system temperatures are within the normal range. Also
check the front panel Overheat LED and make sure that it is not on.
5. Adequate power supply: Make sure that the power supply provides adequate power to
the system. Make sure that all power connectors are connected. Please refer to our
website for more information on the minimum power requirements.
6. Proper software support: Make sure that the correct drivers are used.
69
X10SRM-F/-TF User Manual
B. If the system becomes unstable before or during OS installation, check the following:
1. Source of installation: Make sure that the devices used for installation are working
properly, including boot devices such as CD/DVD and CD/DVD-ROM.
2. Cable connection: Check to make sure that all cables are connected and working
properly.
3. Using the minimum configuration for troubleshooting: Remove all unnecessary
components (starting with add-on cards first), and use the minimum configuration (but
with the CPU and a memory module installed) to identify the trouble areas. Refer to the
steps listed in Section A above for proper troubleshooting procedures.
4. Identifying bad components by isolating them: If necessary, remove a component in
question from the chassis, and test it in isolation to make sure that it works properly.
Replace a bad component with a good one.
5. Check and change one component at a time instead of changing several items at the
same time. This will help isolate and identify the problem.
6. To find out if a component is good, swap this component with a new one to see if the
system will work properly. If so, then the old component is bad. You can also install the
component in question in another system. If the new system works, the component is
good and the old system has problems.

Chapter 4: BIOS
Chapter 4
BIOS
4.1Introduction
This chapter describes the AMIBIOS™ Setup utility for the motherboard. The BIOS is stored
on a chip and can be easily upgraded using a flash program.
Note: Due to periodic changes to the BIOS, some settings may have been added
or deleted and might not yet be recorded in this manual. Please refer to the Manual
Download area of our website for any changes to BIOS that may not be reflected in
this manual.
Starting the Setup Utility
To enter the BIOS Setup Utility, hit the <Delete> key while the system is booting-up. (In
most cases, the <Delete> key is used to invoke the BIOS setup screen. There are a few
cases when other keys are used, such as <F1>, <F2>, etc.) Each main BIOS menu option
is described in this manual.
The Main BIOS screen has two main frames. The left frame displays all the options that can
be configured. “Grayed-out” options cannot be configured. The right frame displays the key
legend. Above the key legend is an area reserved for a text message. When an option is
selected in the left frame, it is highlighted in white. Often a text message will accompany it.
(Note that BIOS has default text messages built in. We retain the option to include, omit, or
change any of these text messages.) Settings printed in Bold are the default values.
A " " indicates a submenu. Highlighting such an item and pressing the <Enter> key will
open the list of settings within that submenu.
The BIOS setup utility uses a key-based navigation system called hot keys. Most of these
hot keys (<F1>, <F2>, <F3>, <Enter>, <ESC>, <Arrow> keys, etc.) can be used at any time
during the setup navigation process.
75
X10SRM-F/-TF User's Manual

Appendix D: UEFI BIOS Recovery
Appendix D
UEFI BIOS Recovery
Warning: Do not upgrade the BIOS unless your system has a BIOS-related issue. Flashing
the wrong BIOS can cause irreparable damage to the system. In no event shall Supermicro
be liable for direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages arising from a BIOS
update. If you need to update the BIOS, do not shut down or reset the system while the BIOS
is updating. Doing so may cause a boot failure.
D.1Overview
The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) specification provides a software-based
interface between the operating system and the platform firmware in the pre-boot environment.
The UEFI specification supports an architecture-independent mechanism for add-on card
initialization to allow the UEFI OS loader, which is stored in the add-on card, to boot up the
system. UEFI offers a clean, hand-off control to a computer system at bootup.
D.2Recovering the UEFI BIOS Image
An AMIBIOS flash chip consists of a boot sector block and a main BIOS code block (a main
BIOS image). The boot sector block contains critical BIOS codes, including memory detection
and recovery codes for the user to flash a new BIOS image if the original BIOS image is
corrupted. When the system power is on, the boot sector codes execute first. Once it is
completed, the main BIOS code will continue with system initialization and bootup.
Note: Follow the BIOS Recovery instructions below for BIOS recovery when the main
BIOS block crashes. However, when the BIOS Boot sector crashes, you will need to
send the motherboard back to Supermicro for RMA repair.
D.3Recovering the BIOS Block with a USB Device
This feature allows the user to recover a BIOS image using a USB-attached device without
additional utilities used. A USB flash device such as a USB Flash Drive, or a USB CD/DVD
ROM/RW device can be used for this purpose. However, a USB Hard Disk drive cannot be
used for BIOS recovery at this time.
To perform UEFI BIOS recovery using a USB-attached device, follow the instructions on the
next page.

1. Using a different machine, copy the "Super.ROM" binary image file into the disc Root "\"
Directory of a USB device or a writeable CD/DVD.
Note: If you cannot locate the "Super.ROM" file in your driver disk, visit our website
at www.supermicro.com to download the BIOS image into a USB flash device and
rename it to "Super.ROM" for BIOS recovery use.
2. Insert the USB device that contains the new BIOS image ("Super.Rom") into your USB
drive and power on the system
3. While powering on the system, keep pressing <Ctrl> and <Home> simultaneously on
your PS2 or USB keyboard until your hear two short beeps. This may take from a few
seconds to one minute.
4. After locating the new BIOS binary image, the system will enter the BIOS Recovery
