X11SRA/-F/-RF User's Manual
1.2Processor and Chipset Overview
The X11SRA and X11SRA-F/-RF motherboards support the Intel Xeon processor W-21xx
series in the LGA2066 socket. With the Intel C422 PCH, the X11SRA/-F/-RF is a high-end,
multi-GPU workstation motherboard that offers reliablity and stability. It offers the latest highperformance features such as NVMe, M.2/U.2 storage interfaces, and DDR4 memory with
speeds of up to 2666MHz.
The X11SRA/-F/-RF supports the following features:
•ACPI Power Management Logic Support Rev. 4.0a
•Intel Turbo Boost Technology
•Configurable TDP (cTDP) and Lower-Power Mode
•Adaptive Thermal Management/Monitoring
•PCI-E 3.0, SATA 3.0, NVMe, U.2 and M.2 connectors
•System Management Bus (SMBus) Specification Version 2.0
•Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT)
•Intel Rapid Storage Technology
•Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (Intel VT-d)
1.3Special Features
This section describes the health monitoring features of the X11SRA/-F/-RF motherboard.
The motherboard has an onboard System Hardware Monitor chip that supports system health
monitoring.
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.
18
Chapter 1: Introduction
1.4System Health Monitoring
The motherboard has an onboard Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) chip that
supports system health monitoring.
Onboard Voltage Monitors
The onboard voltage monitor will continuously scan crucial voltage levels. Once a voltage
becomes unstable, it will give a warning or send an error message to the screen. Users can
adjust the voltage thresholds to define the sensitivity of the voltage monitor. Real time readings
of these voltage levels are all displayed in BIOS.
Fan Status Monitor with Firmware Control
The system health monitor chip can check the RPM status of a cooling fan. The CPU and
chassis fans are controlled by BIOS Thermal Management through the back panel.
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 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.
19
X11SRA/-F/-RF User's Manual
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.
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 X11SRA/-F/-RF motherboard accommodates 24-pin ATX power supplies. Although most
power supplies generally meet the specifications required by the CPU, some are inadequate.
In addition, one 12V 8-pin power connection is also required to ensure adequate power supply
to the system.
Warning: To avoid damaging the power supply or the motherboard, use a power supply
that contains a 24-pin and one 8-pin power connector. Connect the power supplies to
the 24-pin power connector (JPWR2) and the 8-pin power connector (JPWR1) on the
motherboard. Failure in doing so may void the manufacturer warranty on your power
supply and motherboard.
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 X11SRA/-F/-RF motherboard supports one serial communication connection. COM Port
1 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.

2.1Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic com­ponents. To prevent damage to your
motherboard, 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 board 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.

X11SRA/-F/-RF User's Manual
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.

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.

X11SRA/-F/-RF User's Manual
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: Shut down the system and then short JBT1 to clear the CMOS.

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 Section 2-7 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.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.

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.

BIOS Error POST (Beep) Codes
During the POST (Power-On Self-Test) routines, which are performed upon each system
boot, errors may occur.
Non-fatal errors are those which, in most cases, allow the system to continue to boot. These
error messages normally appear on the screen.
Fatal errors will not allow the system to continue with bootup. If a fatal error occurs, you
should consult with your system manufacturer for possible repairs.
These fatal errors are usually communicated through a series of audible beeps. The table
below lists some common errors and their corresponding beep codes encountered by users.

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 to avoid possible boot failure.
D.1Overview
The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) 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 the
system. The UEFI offers a clean, hands-off control to a computer system at bootup.
D.2Recovering the UEFI BIOS Image
A UEFI BIOS flash chip consists of a recovery BIOS block and a main BIOS block (a main
BIOS image). The boot block contains critical BIOS codes, including memory detection and
recovery codes for the user to flash a new BIOS image if the original main BIOS image
is corrupted. When the system power is on, the boot block codes execute first. Once it is
completed, the main BIOS code will continue with system initialization and bootup.
Note 1: Follow the BIOS recovery instructions below for BIOS recovery when the main
BIOS boot crashes.
Note 2: When the BIOS boot block crashes, you will need to follow the procedures to
make a Returned Merchandise Authorization (RMA) request (see section 3.5 for more
information). Also, you may use the Supermicro Update Manager (SUM) Out-of-Band
(OOB) (https://www.supermicro.com.tw/products/nfo/SMS_SUM.cfm) to reflash the
BIOS.
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.
106
Appendix D: UEFI BIOS Recovery
The file system supported by UEFI is FAT (including FAT12, FAT16, and FAT32) installed on
a bootable or non-bootable USB-attached device. However, the BIOS might need several
minutes to locate the SUPER.ROM file if the media size becomes too large because it contains
too many folders and files.
To perform UEFI BIOS recovery using a USB-attached device, follow the instructions below.
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 "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, please keep pressing <Ctrl> and <Home> simultaneously
on your keyboard until the following screen (or a screen similar to the one below)
displays.
Warning: Please stop pressing the <Ctrl> and <Home> keys immediately when you see the
screen (or a similar screen) below; otherwise, it will trigger a system reboot.
Note: On the other hand, if the following screen displays, please load the "Super.
ROM" file to the root folder and connect this folder to the system. (You can do so by
inserting a USB device that contains the new "Super.ROM" image to your machine
for BIOS recovery.)
107
X11SRA/-F/-RF User's Manual
4. After locating the new BIOS binary image, the system will enter the BIOS Recovery
menu as shown below.
Note: At this point, you may decide if you want to start the BIOS recovery. If you decide
to proceed with BIOS recovery, follow the procedures below.
5. When the screen as shown above displays, use the arrow keys to select the item
"Proceed with flash update" and press the <Enter> key. You will see the BIOS recovery
progress as shown in the screen below.
Note: Do not interrupt the BIOS flashing process until it has completed.
108
Appendix D: UEFI BIOS Recovery
6. After the BIOS recovery process is completed, press any key to reboot the system.
7. Using a different system, extract the BIOS package into a USB flash drive.
8. Press <Del> continuously to enter the BIOS setup utility. Set the item, Boot Option #1,
to [UEFI AP:UEFI: Built-in EFI Shell]. Press <F4> to save the settings and exit the BIOS
setup utility.
109
X11SRA/-F/-RF User's Manual
9. When the UEFI Shell prompt appears, type fs# to change the device directory path. Go
to the directory which contains the BIOS package extracted earlier from Step 7. Enter
flash.nsh BIOSname.### at the prompt to start the BIOS update process.
Note: Do not interrupt this process until the BIOS flashing is complete.
10. The screen above indicates that the BIOS update process is completed. When you
see the screen above, unplug the AC power cable from the power supply, clear CMOS,
and plug the AC power cable in the power supply again to power on the system.
11. Press <Del> continuously to enter the BIOS setup utility.
12. Press <F3> to load the default settings.
13. After loading the default settings, press <F4> to save the settings and exit the BIOS
setup utility.
