1-11
X9DRG-HF+II/X9DRG-HTF+II Motherboard User’s Manual
1-3 Special 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.
1-4 PC Health Monitoring
This section describes the features of PC health monitoring of the motherboard.
This motherboard has an onboard System_Hardware_Monitor chip that supports
PC health monitoring. An onboard voltage monitor will scan the following onboard
voltages continuously:1.8V, +3.3V, 3.3VSB, +5V, +5V Standby, 1.35V, 1.5V, Chipset
Voltage, and Battery Voltage. 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.
Environmental Temperature Control
A thermal control sensor monitors the CPU temperature in real time and will turn
on the thermal control fan whenever the CPU temperature exceeds a user-defined
threshold. The overheat circuitry runs independently from the CPU. Once it detects
that the CPU temperature is too high, it will automatically turn on the thermal fan
control to prevent the CPU from overheating. The onboard chassis thermal circuitry
can monitor the overall system temperature and alert the user when the chassis
temperature is too high.
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® III in the Windows OS
environment or used with SuperDoctor II in Linux. 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.
1-12
Chapter 1: Overview
1-5 ACPI 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 PC 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 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, and Windows 2008 Operating Systems.
Slow Blinking LED for Suspend-State Indicator
When the CPU goes into a suspend state, the chassis power LED will start blinking
to indicate that the CPU is in suspend mode. When the user presses any key, the
CPU will "wake up," and the LED will automatically stop blinking and remain on.
1-6 Power 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 X9DRG-HF+II/X9DRG-HTF+II motherboard supports SMC-Proprietary 62-pin,
10-pin power connectors and 12V 8-pin power connectors. 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.
Note: Please use SMC-proprietary power supply as specified as above.
This motherboard does not support any power supply manufactured by
other manufacturer.
1-7 Super I/O
The Super I/O supports one high-speed, 16550 compatible serial communication
header (UART). The UART includes a 16-byte send/receive FIFO, a programmable
baud rate generator, complete modem control capability, and a processor interrupt
system. The UART provides legacy speed with baud rate of up to 115.2 Kbps.
1-13
X9DRG-HF+II/X9DRG-HTF+II Motherboard User’s Manual
The Super I/O provides functions that comply with ACPI (Advanced Configuration
and Power Interface), which includes support of legacy and ACPI power management through an SMI or SCI function pin. It also features auto power management
to reduce power consumption.
Note: Super I/O may not be present on all boards.
1-8 Advanced Power Management
The new advanced power management features supported by this motherboard
include IPNM and ME. Please note that you will need to do the following to use
these two new features:
•Use a power supply that supports PMBus 1.1 or 1.2,
•Install the NMView software in your system. NMView is optional and can be
purchased from Supermicro.
Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager (NM)
The Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager (IPNM) provides your system with
real-time thermal control and power management for maximum energy efficiency.
Although IPNM is supported by the BMC (Baseboard Management Controller),
your system must also have IPNM-compatible Management Engine (ME) firmware
installed in your system for IPNM support.
Note: Support for IPNM Specification Version 1.5 or Vision 2.0 depends
on the power supply used in the system.
Management Engine (ME)
The Management Engine, which is an ARC controller embedded in the PCH, provides Server Platform Services (SPS) to your system. The services provided by
SPS are different from those provided by the ME on client platforms.

X9DRG-HF+II/X9DRG-HTF+II Motherboard User’s Manual
2-5 Motherboard 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 motherboard and
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.
Tools Needed
•Phillips Screwdriver
•Pan head screws (9 pieces)
•Standoffs (9 pieces, if needed)
Location of Mounting Holes
There are nine (9) mounting holes on this motherboard indicated by the arrows.
X9DRG-HF+II
Rev. 1.00
Caution: 1) To avoid damaging the motherboard and its components,
please do not use a force greater than 8 lb/inch on each mounting screw
during motherboard installation. 2) Some components are very close to the
mounting holes. Please take precautionary measures to prevent damage
to these components when installing the motherboard to the chassis.
2-16
Chapter 2: Installation
Installing the Motherboard
1. Install the I/O shield into the chassis.
2. Locate the mounting holes on the motherboard.
3. Locate the matching mounting holes on the chassis. Align the mounting holes
on the motherboard against the mounting holes on the chassis.
4. Install standoffs in the chassis as needed.
5. Install the motherboard into the chassis carefully to avoid damaging motherboard components.
6. Using the Phillips screwdriver, insert a Pan head #6 screw into a mounting
hole on the motherboard and its matching mounting hole on the chassis.
7. Repeat Step 5 to insert #6 screws into all mounting holes.
8. Make sure that the motherboard is securely placed in the chassis.

2-8 Jumper Settings
Explanation of Jumpers
Connector
Pins
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 motherboard layout pages
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 CMOS. Instead of pins, this "jumper" consists of contact pads
to prevent accidental clearing of CMOS. To clear CMOS, use a metal object such
as a small screwdriver to touch both pads at the same time to short the connection.
Always remove the AC power cord from the system before clearing CMOS.
Note 1: For an ATX power supply, you must completely shut down the
system, remove the AC power cord, and then short JBT1 to clear CMOS.
Note 2: Be sure to remove the onboard CMOS Battery before you short
JBT1 to clear CMOS.
Note 3: Clearing CMOS will also clear all passwords.
Watch Dog Enable/Disable
Watch Dog (JWD1) is a system monitor that will reboot the system when a software application hangs.
Close pins 1-2 to reset the system if an application
hangs. Close pins 2-3 to generate a non-maskable
interrupt signal for the application that hangs. See
the table on the right for jumper settings. Watch
Dog must also be enabled in the BIOS.

Appendix A
BIOS Error Beep Codes
During the POST (Power-On Self-Test) routines, which are performed at each
system boot, errors may occur.
Non-fatal errors are those which, in most cases, allow the system to continue to
boot. The error messages normally appear on the screen.
Fatal errors will not allow the system to continue with bootup procedure. 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 numbers on the fatal error list correspond to the number of beeps for the
corresponding error.

You are ready to install software programs and drivers that have not yet been installed. To install these programs, click the icons to the right of these items.
Note: To install the Windows OS, please refer to the instructions posted
on our Website at http://www.supermicro.com/support/manuals/.
Driver/Tool Installation Display Screen
Note 1: Click the icons showing a hand writing on the paper to view the
readme files for each item. Click a computer icon to the right of an item to
install an item (from top to the bottom) one at a time. After installing each
item, you must reboot the system before proceeding with the next item
on the list. The bottom icon with a CD on it allows you to view the entire
contents of the CD.
Note 2: When making a storage driver diskette by booting into a Driver
CD, please set the SATA Configuration to "Compatible Mode" and configure
SATA as IDE in the BIOS Setup. After making the driver diskette, be sure

B-2 Configuring SuperDoctor III
The SuperDoctor® III program is a Web-based management tool that supports
remote management capability. It includes Remote and Local Management tools.
The local management is called the SD III Client. The SuperDoctor III program
included on the CDROM that came with your motherboard allows you to monitor
the environment and operations of your system. SuperDoctor III displays crucial
system information such as CPU temperature, system voltages and fan status. See
the Figure below for a display of the SuperDoctor III interface.
Note 1: The default user name and password are ADMIN.
Note 2: In the Windows OS environment, the SuperDoctor III settings take
precedence over the BIOS settings. When first installed, SuperDoctor III
adopts the temperature threshold settings previously set in BIOS. Any
subsequent changes to these thresholds must be made within SuperDoctor, since the SD III settings override the BIOS settings. For the Windows
OS to adopt the BIOS temperature threshold settings, please change the
SDIII settings to be the same as those set in BIOS.
