2011 package with integrated memory controller to support 4 channel (8 DIMM prt CPU)
DDR3 memory. Intel Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family supports Intel QuickPath
Interconnect (QPI) with a system bus of up to 8.0GT/s.
Optimized Intel® Turbo Boost Technology
Optimized Intel® Turbo Boost Technology opportunistically and automatically allows the
processor to run faster than the marked frequency if the processor is operating below power,
temperature and current limits.
Intel® Hyper Threading
The thread-level parallelism on each processor makes more efficient use of the processor
resources, higher processing throughout and improved performance on today's multithreaded software.
Intel® EM64T
The motherboard supports Intel® processors with the Intel® EM64T (Extended Memory 64
Technology). The Intel® EM64T feature allows your computer to run on 64-bit operating
systems and access larger amounts of system memory for faster and more efficient
computing.
DDR3 memory support
The Z9PE-D16-10G Series supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of
1600/1333/1066 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of server and workstation
applications. The 4-channel DDR3 architecture boosts system performance, eliminating
bottlenecks with peak bandwidth of up to 52GB/s. This voltage reduction limits the power
consumption and heat generation of DDR3 which makes it an ideal memory solution. Also,
the motherboard can support LR-DIMM (Load reduced DIMM) which uses a specially
designed buffer to reduce the data load to a single load and can increase overall server
system memory capacity.

Jumpers
Clear RTC RAM (3-pin CLRTC1)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can
clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing
the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in
CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1–2 (default) to pins 2–3. Keep the cap on pins
2–3 for about 5–10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1–2.
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 reenter data.
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default
position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!
If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper again to
clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After the CMOS clearance, reinstall the battery.

during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility; otherwise, POST continues
with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing <Ctrl+Alt+Delete>, or by
pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can also restart by turning the system
off and then back on. Do this last option only if the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being a menu-driven
program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus and make your selections from the
available options using the navigation keys.

5.1
Setting up RAID
The motherboard supports the following SATA RAID solutions:
•
LSI MegaRAID software RAID Configuration Utility with RAID 0, RAID 1, and RAID
10 support (for both Linux and Windows OS).
•
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology enterprise Option ROM Utility with RAID 0, RAID
1, RAID 10, and RAID 5 support (for Windows OS only).
5.1.1
RAID definitions
RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and write data in
parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same work as a single drive but at a
sustained data transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone, thus improving data access
and storage. Use of two new identical hard disk drives is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one drive to a
second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management software directs all applications
to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of the data in the other drive. This RAID
configuration provides data protection and increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use
two new drives or use an existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new drive must be
of the same size or larger than the existing drive.
RAID 10 is data striping and data mirroring combined without parity (redundancy data) having
to be calculated and written. With the RAID 10 configuration you get all the benefits of both
RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations. Use four new hard disk drives or use an existing drive
and three new drives for this setup.
RAID 5 stripes both data and parity information across three or more hard disk drives. Among
the advantages of RAID 5 configuration include better HDD performance, fault tolerance, and
higher storage capacity. The RAID 5 configuration is best suited for transaction processing,
relational database applications, enterprise resource planning, and other business systems.
Use a minimum of three identical hard disk drives for this setup.
•
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a created RAID set,
copy first the RAID driver from the support DVD to a floppy disk before you install an
operating system to the selected hard disk drive.
•
Please refer to chapter 2 for how to select the RAID configuration utility. Move the
jumper to choose between LSI MegaRAID and Intel® Rapid RAID.
Z9PE-D16-10G Series
5-3
5.1.2
Installing hard disk drives
The motherboard supports Serial ATA for RAID set configuration. For optimal performance,
install identical drives of the same model and capacity when creating a disk array.
To install the SATA hard disks for RAID configuration:
1.
Install the SATA hard disks into the drive bays following the instructions in the system
user guide.
2.
Connect a SATA signal cable to the signal connector at the back of each drive and to
the SATA connector on the motherboard.
3.
Connect a SATA power cable to the power connector on each drive.
5.1.3
Setting the RAID item in BIOS
You must set the RAID item in the BIOS Setup before you can create a RAID set from SATA
hard disk drives attached to the SATA connectors supported by
Intel® C602 chipset. To do this:
1.
Enter the BIOS Setup during POST.
2.
Go to the Advanced Menu > PCH SATA Configuration, then press <Enter>.
3.
Set SATA Mode to [RAID Mode]
4.
Press <F10> to save your changes and exit the BIOS Setup.
Refer to Chapter 4 for details on entering and navigating through the BIOS Setup.
5.1.4
RAID configuration utilities
Depending on the RAID connectors that you use, you can create a RAID set using the utilities
embedded in each RAID controller. For example, use the LSI Logic Embedded SATA RAID
Setup Utility or the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology if you installed Serial ATA hard disk
drives on the Serial ATA connectors supported by the Intel® C602 chipset.
Refer to the succeeding section for details on how to use the RAID configuration utility.

Chapter 5: RAID configuration
5.2LSI Software RAID Configuration Utility
The LSI MegaRAID software RAID configuration utility allows you to create RAID 0,
RAID 1, or RAID 10 set(s) from SATA hard disk drives connected to the SATA connectors
supported by the motherboard southbridge chip.
To enter the LSI MegaRAID software RAID configuration utility:
1.
Turn on the system after installing all the SATA hard disk drives.
2.
During POST, the LSI MegaRAID software RAID configuration utility automatically
detects the installed SATA hard disk drives and displays any existing RAID set(s).
Press <Ctrl> + <M> to enter the utility.

Creating a RAID driver disk
After creating the RAID sets for your server system, you are now ready to install an
operating system to the independent hard disk drive or bootable array. This part provides the
instructions on how to install the RAID controller drivers during OS installation.
The system does not include a floppy drive. You have to use a USB floppy drive when
creating a SATA RAID driver disk.
If you have created RAID sets with the LSI Software RAID configuration utility, the boot
priority of the SATA optical disk drive has to be manually adjusted. Otherwise, the system
will not boot from the connected SATA ODD.
A floppy disk with the RAID driver is required when installing Windows® XP / Server 2003 or
Linux operating system on a hard disk drive that is included in a RAID set. You can create a
RAID driver disk in DOS (using the Makedisk application in the support DVD).
To create a RAID driver disk in DOS environment
1.
Place the motherboard support DVD in the optical drive.
2.
Restart the computer, and then enter the BIOS Setup.
3.
Select the optical drive as the first boot priority to boot from the support DVD. Save
your changes, and then exit the BIOS Setup.
4.
Restart the computer. The Makedisk menu appears.
