►►Features
Wake-On-LAN
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 PCI LAN card that uses the PCI PME (Power Management Event) signal. However, if your system is in the Suspend mode, you can power-on
the system only through an IRQ or DMA interrupt.
Watchdog Timer
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.
DDR4
DDR4 deliver increased system bandwidth and improved performance at a lower power than
DDR3/DDR3L/DDR2. It is not compatible with DDR3/DDR3L/DDR2.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.
PCI Express
PCI Express is a high bandwidth I/O infrastructure that possesses the ability to scale speeds
by forming multiple lanes. The x4 PCI Express lane supports transfer rate of 4 Gigabyte per
second (2 directions). The PCI Express architecture also supports high performance graphics
infrastructure by enhancing the capability of a PCIe x16 Gen 3 at 16GB/s bandwidth (8GB/s in
each direction).
Wake-On-USB
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.
Serial ATA
Serial ATA is a storage interface that is compliant with SATA 1.0a specification. With speed of
up to 6Gb/s (SATA 3.0), it improves hard drive performance faster than the standard parallel
ATA whose data transfer rate is 100MB/s. The bandwidth of the SATA 3.0 will be limited by
carrier board design.
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.
Wake-On-PS/2
This function allows you to use the PS/2 keyboard or PS/2 mouse to power-on the system.
RTC Timer
The RTC installed on the system board allows your system to automatically power-on on the
set date and time.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.
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.
Power Failure Recovery
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 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.

Installing the CPU, Fan and Heat Sink
The system board is equipped with a surface mount LGA 3647 socket. This socket is exclusively designed for installing a LGA 3647 packaged Intel CPU.
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.
Note:
A boxed Intel® processor already includes the CPU fan and heat sink assembly. If
your CPU was purchased separately, make sure to only use Intel®-certified fan
and heat sink.
Important:
1. Before you proceed, make sure (1) the LGA 3647 socket comes with 2 protective caps, (2) the caps are not damaged and (3) the socket’s contact pins are not
bent. If the caps are missing or the caps and/or contact pins are damaged, contact your dealer immediately.
2. Make sure to keep the protective caps. RMA requests will be accepted and processed only if the LGA 3647 socket comes with the protective caps.
Protective
cap
1. Before you place the CPU on the heat sink, you must apply a thermal paste onto the top
of the heat sink. The thermal paste is usually supplied when you purchase the fan with
heat sink assembly. Do not spread the paste all over the surface. When you later place the
CPU on top of the heat sink, the compound will disperse evenly.
Some heat sinks come with a patch of pre-applied thermal paste. Do not apply thermal
paste if the fan with heat sink already has a patch of thermal paste on its underside. Peel
the strip that covers the paste before you place the CPU on top of the heat sink.
2. Insert the CPU into the CPU carrier. The gold triangular mark on the CPU must align with
the triangular corner of the CPU carrier shown on the photo.

▲▲ ATX Power
Use a power supply that complies with the ATX12V Power Supply Design Guide Version 1.1.
An ATX12V power supply unit has a standard 24-pin ATX main power connector that must be
inserted into the 24-pin connector. The 8-pin +12V power connector enables the delivery of
more +12VDC current to the processor’s Voltage Regulator Module (VRM).
The power connectors from the power supply unit are designed to fit the 24-pin and 8-pin
connectors in only one orientation. Make sure to find the proper orientation before plugging
the connectors.
The system board requires a minimum of 300 Watt power supply to operate. Your system
configuration (CPU power, amount of memory, add-in cards, peripherals, etc.) may exceed the
minimum power requirement. To ensure that adequate power is provided, we strongly recommend that you use a minimum of 400 Watt (or greater) power supply.
These fan connectors are used to connect cooling fans. The cooling fans will provide adequate
airflow throughout the chassis to prevent overheating the CPU and system board components.
BIOS Setting
Information of the Cooling fans is displayed in the “Advanced” menu (“SDR List” submenu under the “H2O IPMI Configuration” submenu) of the BIOS. Please refer to chapter 3 for more
information.
Important:
Insufficient power supplied to the system may result in instability or the add-in boards
and peripherals not functioning properly. Calculating the system’s approximate power
usage is important to ensure that the power supply meets the system’s consumption
requirements.

The Low Pin Count Interface was defined by Intel® Corporation to facilitate the industry’s transition towards legacy free systems. It allows the integration of low-bandwidth legacy I/O components within the system, which are typically provided by a Super I/O controller. Furthermore,
it can be used to interface firmware hubs, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) devices and embedded controller solutions. Data transfer on the LPC bus is implemented over a 4 bit serialized
data interface, which uses a 33MHz LPC bus clock. For more information about LPC bus refer
to the Intel® Low Pin Count Interface Specification Revision 1.1’. The table below indicates the

Chapter 3 - BIOS Setup
►►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.
Legends
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.
Entering the BIOS Setup Utility
Scroll Bar
The BIOS Setup Utility can only be operated from the keyboard and all commands are keyboard commands. The commands are available at the right side of each setup screen.
When a scroll bar appears to the right of the setup screen, it indicates that there are more
available fields not shown on the screen. Use the up and down arrow keys to scroll through all
the available fields.
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.
Submenu
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

Chapter 5 - RAID
Settings
The system board allows configuring RAID on Serial ATA drives. It supports RAID 0, RAID 1,
RAID 5 and RAID 10.
To enable the RAID function, the following settings are required.
RAID Levels
1. Connect the Serial ATA drives.
RAID 0 (Striped Disk Array without Fault Tolerance)
2. Enable RAID in the Insyde BIOS.
RAID 0 uses two new identical hard disk drives to read and write data in parallel, interleaved
stacks. Data is divided into stripes and each stripe is written alternately between two disk
drives. This improves the I/O performance of the drives at different channel; however it is not
fault tolerant. A failed disk will result in data loss in the disk array.
3. Create a RAID volume.
3-1. Create a RAID volume if the boot type is UEFI.
4. Install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Utility.
RAID 1 (Mirroring Disk Array with Fault Tolerance)
Step 1: Connect the Serial ATA Drives
RAID 1 copies and maintains an identical image of the data from one drive to the other drive.
If a drive fails to function, the disk array management software directs all applications to the
other drive since it contains a complete copy of the drive’s data. This enhances data protection
and increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use two new drives or an existing drive and
a new drive but the size of the new drive must be the same or larger than the existing drive.
Refer to chapter 2 for details on connecting the Serial ATA drives.
Important:
1. Make sure you have installed the Serial ATA drives and connected the data cables
otherwise you won’t be able to enter the RAID BIOS utility.
2. Treat the cables with extreme caution especially while creating RAID. A damaged
cable will ruin the entire installation process and operating system. The system will
not boot and you will lost all data in the hard drives. Please give special attention
to this warning because there is no way of recovering back the data.
RAID 5
RAID 5 stripes data and parity information across hard drives. It is fault tolerant and provides
better hard drive performance and more storage capacity.
RAID 10 (Mirroring and Striping)
Step 2: Enable RAID in the Insyde BIOS
RAID 10 is a combination of data striping and data mirroring providing the benefits of both
RAID 0 and RAID 1. Use four new drives or an existing drive and three new drives for this
configuration.
1. Power-on the system then press <Del> to enter the main menu of the Insyde BIOS.
2. Go to “Advanced” menu and select the “SATA Configuration” menu.

Step 4: Install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Utility
The Intel Rapid Storage Technology Utility can be installed from within Windows. It allows
RAID volume management (create, delete, migrate) from within the operating system. It will
also display useful SATA device and RAID volume information. The user interface, tray icon
service and monitor service allow you to monitor the current status of the RAID volume and/
or SATA drives. It enables enhanced performance and power management for the storage
subsystem.
