The Watchdog Timer function allows your application to regularly “clear” the system at the set
time interval. If the system hangs or fails to function, it will reset at the set time interval so
that your system will continue to operate.
Note:
*Optional and is not supported in standard model. Please contact your sales representative for more information.
• DDR3L
DDR3L is a higher performance DDR3 SDRAM interface providing less voltage and higher
speed successor. DDR3L SDRAM modules support 1066/1333MHz for DDR modules. DDR3L delivers increased system bandwidth and improved performance to provide its higher bandwidth
and its increase in performance at a lower power than DDR3 and DDR2.
• Graphics
The integrated Intel® HD graphics engine delivers an excellent blend of graphics performance
and features to meet business needs. It provides excellent video and 3D graphics with outstanding graphics responsiveness. These enhancements deliver the performance and compatibility needed for today’s and tomorrow’s business applications. Supports 1 VGA and 1 LVDS
interfaces for 2 display outputs.
• PCI Express
PCI Express is a high bandwidth I/O infrastructure that possesses the ability to scale speeds
by forming multiple lanes. The PCI Express architecture also supports high performance graphics infrastructure by enhancing the capability of a PCIe x1 interface.
• Serial ATA
Serial ATA is a storage interface that is compliant with SATA 1.0a specification. With speed of
up to 3Gb/s (SATA 2.0), it improves hard drive performance faster than the standard parallel
ATA whose data transfer rate is 100MB/s.
• Gigabit LAN
Two Intel® I210 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controllers support up to 1Gbps data transmission.
• Wake-On-PS/2 KB/MS (optional)
This function allows you to use the PS/2 keyboard or PS/2 mouse to power-on the system.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.

• Wake-On-LAN
• Power Failure Recovery
This feature allows the network to remotely wake up a Soft Power Down (Soft-Off) PC. It is
supported via the onboard LAN port or via a PCIe LAN card that uses the PCIe PME (Power
Management Event) signal. However, if your system is in the Suspend mode, you can poweron the system only through an IRQ or DMA interrupt.
When power returns after an AC power failure, you may choose to either power-on the system
manually or let the system power-on automatically.
• USB
The system board supports the new USB 3.0. It is capable of running at a maximum transmission speed of up to 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s) and is faster than USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/s, or 60 MB/s)
and USB 1.1 (12Mb/s). USB 3.0 reduces the time required for data transmission, reduces
power consumption, and is backward compatible with USB 2.0. It is a marked improvement
in device transfer speeds between your computer and a wide range of simultaneously
accessible external Plug and Play peripherals.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.
• Wake-On-USB (optional)
This function allows you to use a USB keyboard or USB mouse to wake up a system from the
S3 (STR - Suspend To RAM) state.
Important:
If you are using the Wake-On-USB Keyboard/Mouse function for 2 USB ports, the
5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥1.5A. For 3 or more
USB ports, the 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥2A.
• RTC Timer
The RTC installed on the system board allows your system to automatically power-on on the
set date and time.
• ACPI STR
The system board is designed to meet the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface)
specification. ACPI has energy saving features that enables PCs to implement Power Management and Plug-and-Play with operating systems that support OS Direct Power Management.
ACPI when enabled in the Power Management Setup will allow you to use the Suspend to RAM
function.
With the Suspend to RAM function enabled, you can power-off the system at once by pressing
the power button or selecting “Standby” when you shut down Windows® without having to
go through the sometimes tiresome process of closing files, applications and operating system.
This is because the system is capable of storing all programs and data files during the entire
operating session into RAM (Random Access Memory) when it powers-off. The operating session will resume exactly where you left off the next time you power-on the system.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.

Installing the DIMM Module
5. Grasping the module by its edges, align the module into the socket at an approximately 30
degrees angle. Apply firm even pressure to each end of the module until it slips down into
the socket. The contact fingers on the edge of the module will almost completely disappear
inside the socket.
Note:
The system board used in the following illustrations may not resemble the actual
board. These illustrations are for reference only.
1. Make sure the PC and all other peripheral devices connected to it has been powered down.
2. Disconnect all power cords and cables.
3. Locate the SODIMM socket on the system board.
4. Note the key on the socket. The key ensures the module can be plugged into the socket in
only one direction.
6. Push down the module until the clips at each end of the socket lock into position. You will
hear a distinctive “click”, indicating the module is correctly locked into position.

Installing the Fan and Heat Sink
4. Place the fan / heat sink assembly on top of the CPU. The 4 screws around the heat sink
must match the screw holes of the retention module base. We strongly recommend using
this type of fan / heat sink assembly because it provides adequate cooling to the components of the system board.
The CPU must be kept cool by using a CPU fan with heat sink. Without sufficient air circulation across the CPU and heat sink, the CPU will overheat damaging both the CPU and system
board.
Turn each Phillips head screw half way down first to initially stabilize the heat sink onto
the board, then finally tighten each screw.
Note:
• Use only certified fan and heat sink.
• Your fan and heat sink package usually contains the fan and heat sink assembly,
and an installation guide. If the installation procedure in the installation guide differs from the one in this section, please follow the installation guide in the package.
Important:
Do not turn the first screw all the way down followed by the next and so on. This is
to avoid imbalance which might cause cracks or fractures to the CPU and/or heat sink
assembly.
1. On the solder side of the board, match the retention module base to the mounting holes
around the CPU socket.

Chapter 3 - BIOS Setup
Legends
Overview
The BIOS is a program that takes care of the basic level of communication between the CPU
and peripherals. It contains codes for various advanced features found in this system board.
The BIOS allows you to configure the system and save the configuration in a battery-backed
CMOS so that the data retains even when the power is off. In general, the information stored
in the CMOS RAM of the EEPROM will stay unchanged unless a configuration change has been
made such as a hard drive replaced or a device added.
It is possible that the CMOS battery will fail causing CMOS data loss. If this happens, you need
to install a new CMOS battery and reconfigure the BIOS settings.
Note:
The BIOS is constantly updated to improve the performance of the system board;
therefore the BIOS screens in this chapter may not appear the same as the actual
one. These screens are for reference purpose only.
Default Configuration
Most of the configuration settings are either predefined according to the Load Optimal Defaults
settings which are stored in the BIOS or are automatically detected and configured without
requiring any actions. There are a few settings that you may need to change depending on
your system configuration.

The BIOS Setup Utility does not require an operating system to run. After you power up the
system, the BIOS message appears on the screen and the memory count begins. After the
memory test, the message “Press DEL to run setup” will appear on the screen. If the message
disappears before you respond, restart the system or press the “Reset” button. You may also
restart the system by pressing the <Ctrl> <Alt> and <Del> keys simultaneously.
When ““ appears on the left of a particular field, it indicates that a submenu which contains
additional options are available for that field. To display the submenu, move the highlight to
that field and press <Enter>.

The Configuration Register (register 3) configures the direction of the I/O pins. If a bit in this
register is set to 1, the corresponding port pin is enabled as an input with a high-impedence
output driver. If a bit in this register is cleared to 0, the corresponding port is enabled as an
input.
Register Description
The Input Port Register (register 0) reflects the incoming logic levels of the pins, regardless of whether the pin if defined as an input or output by the Configuration Register. They
act only on the red operation. Writes to this register have no effect. The default value (X) is
determined by the externally applied logic level. Before a red operation, a write transmission
is sent with the command byte to indicate to the I2C device that the Input Port Regiser will be
accessed next.

the output selection, not the actual pin value.

Appendix C - Troubleshooting Checklist
The picture seems to be constantly moving.
Troubleshooting Checklist
1. The monitor has lost its vertical sync. Adjust the monitor’s vertical sync.
This chapter of the manual is designed to help you with problems that you may encounter
with your personal computer. To efficiently troubleshoot your system, treat each problem individually. This is to ensure an accurate diagnosis of the problem in case a problem has multiple
causes.
2. Move away any objects, such as another monitor or fan, that may be creating a magnetic
field around the display.
Some of the most common things to check when you encounter problems while using your
system are listed below.
The screen seems to be constantly wavering.
3. Make sure your video card’s output frequencies are supported by this monitor.
1. The power switch of each peripheral device is turned on.
1. If the monitor is close to another monitor, the adjacent monitor may need to be turned off.
Fluorescent lights adjacent to the monitor may also cause screen wavering.
2. All cables and power cords are tightly connected.
Power Supply
3. The electrical outlet to which your peripheral devices are connected is working. Test the
outlet by plugging in a lamp or other electrical device.
When the computer is turned on, nothing happens.
4. The monitor is turned on.
1. Check that one end of the AC power cord is plugged into a live outlet and the other end
properly plugged into the back of the system.
5. The display’s brightness and contrast controls are adjusted properly.
2. Make sure that the voltage selection switch on the back panel is set for the correct type of
voltage you are using.
6. All add-in boards in the expansion slots are seated securely.
3. The power cord may have a “short” or “open”. Inspect the cord and install a new one if
necessary.
7. Any add-in board you have installed is designed for your system and is set up correctly.
Monitor/Display
Floppy Drive
If the display screen remains dark after the system is turned on:
The computer cannot access the floppy drive.
1. Make sure that the monitor’s power switch is on.
1. The floppy diskette may not be formatted. Format the diskette and try again.
2. Check that one end of the monitor’s power cord is properly attached to the monitor and
the other end is plugged into a working AC outlet. If necessary, try another outlet.
2. The diskette may be write-protected. Use a diskette that is not write-protected.
3. Check that the video input cable is properly attached to the monitor and the system’s
display adapter.
3. You may be writing to the wrong drive. Check the path statement to make sure you are
writing to the targeted drive.
4. Adjust the brightness of the display by turning the monitor’s brightness control knob.
4. There is not enough space left on the diskette. Use another diskette with adequate storage
space.

Appendix C
Hard Drive
System Board
Hard disk failure.
1. Make sure the add-in card is seated securely in the expansion slot. If the add-in card is
loose, power off the system, re-install the card and power up the system.
1. Make sure the correct drive type for the hard disk drive has been entered in the BIOS.
2. Check the jumper settings to ensure that the jumpers are properly set.
2. If the system is configured with two hard drives, make sure the bootable (first) hard drive
is configured as Master and the second hard drive is configured as Slave. The master hard
drive must have an active/bootable partition.
3. Verify that all memory modules are seated securely into the memory sockets.
4. Make sure the memory modules are in the correct locations.
Excessively long formatting period.
5. If the board fails to function, place the board on a flat surface and seat all socketed components. Gently press each component into the socket.
If your hard drive takes an excessively long period of time to format, it is likely a cable connection problem. However, if your hard drive has a large capacity, it will take a longer time to
format.
6. If you made changes to the BIOS settings, re-enter setup and load the BIOS defaults.
Serial Port
The serial device (modem, printer) doesn’t output anything or is outputting garbled
characters.
1. Make sure that the serial device’s power is turned on and that the device is on-line.
2. Verify that the device is plugged into the correct serial port on the rear of the computer.
3. Verify that the attached serial device works by attaching it to a serial port that is working
and configured correctly. If the serial device does not work, either the cable or the serial
device has a problem. If the serial device works, the problem may be due to the onboard
I/O or the address setting.
4. Make sure the COM settings and I/O address are configured correctly.
Keyboard
Nothing happens when a key on the keyboard was pressed.
1. Make sure the keyboard is properly connected.
2. Make sure there are no objects resting on the keyboard and that no keys are pressed during the booting process.
