Features
• Wake-On-LAN
• Watchdog Timer
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.
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
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.
DDR4 delivers increased system bandwidth and improves performance. The advantages of
DDR4 provide an extended battery life and improve the performance at a lower power than
DDR3/DDR2.
• Graphics
• Wake-On-USB
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 x VGA, 1 x DVI-I
(DVI-D signal) and 1 x DP++ interfaces for display outputs.
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.
• 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 x16 Gen 3 at 16GB/s bandwidth.
• RTC Timer
• Serial ATA
The RTC installed on the system board allows your system to automatically power-on on the
set date and time.
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.
• Gigabit LAN
• ACPI STR
Intel® I211AT PCIe and Intel® I219V LAN Phy controllers support up to 1Gbps data transmission for CS630-H310. Intel® I211AT PCIe and Intel® I219LM LAN Phy controllers support up to
1Gbps data transmission for CS630-Q370.
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.
• Audio
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.
The Realtek ALC888S-VD2-GR audio codec provides 5.1-channel High Definition audio output.
• Wake-On-PS/2
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.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.

• 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 new USB 3.1 Gen 2. It is capable of running at a maximum
transmission speed of up to 10 Gbit/s (1.2 GB/s) and is faster than USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbit/s,
or 625 MB/s), USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/s, or 60 MB/s) and USB 1.1 (12Mb/s). USB 3.1 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 Fan and Heat Sink
4. Rotate each push-pin according to the direction of
the arrow shown on top of
the pin.
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.
Push down two pushpins
that are diagonally across
the heat sink. Perform the
same procedure for the
other two push-pins.
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.
Heat sink
1. Before you install the fan / heat sink, you must apply a thermal paste onto the top of the
CPU. The thermal paste is usually supplied when you purchase the fan / heat sink assembly. Do not spread the paste all over the surface. When you later place the heat sink on
top of the CPU, the compound will disperse evenly.
“Unlocked” position
of push-pin
Some heat sinks come with a patch of pre-applied thermal paste. Do not apply thermal
paste if the fan / heat sink already has a patch of thermal paste on its underside. Peel the
strip that covers the paste before you place the fan / heat sink on top of the CPU.
2. Place the heat sink on top
of the CPU. The 4 pushpins around the heat sink,
which are used to secure
the heat sink onto the system board, must match the
4 mounting holes around
the socket.

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).
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
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 Advanced menu (“SIO NUVOTON6106D” submenu) of the BIOS will display the current
speed of the cooling fans. Refer to chapter 3 for more information.
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.
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
pin functions of the LPC connector.

Chapter 3 - BIOS Setup
Legends
Overview
Keys
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.
Function
Right and Left arrows Moves the highlight left or right to select a menu.
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.
Up and Down arrows
Moves the highlight up or down between submenus or fields.
<Enter>
Press <Enter> to enter the highlighted submenu.
+ (plus key)
Scrolls forward through the values or options of the highlighted field.
- (minus key)
Scrolls backward through the values or options of the highlighted field.
<F1>

<F2>

<F9>

<F10>

<Esc>
Exits to the BIOS Setup Utility.
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
that field and press <Enter>.

Updating the BIOS
Notice: BIOS SPI ROM
To update the BIOS, you will need the new BIOS file and a flash utility. Please contact technical support or your sales representative for the files. You may refer to how-to-video, How to
update AMI BIOS in UEFI mode on DFI products?, at https://www.dfi.com/Knowledge/Video/5
for updating the BIOS steps.
1. The Intel® Management Engine has already been integrated into this system board. Due to
the safety concerns, the BIOS (SPI ROM) chip cannot be removed from this system board
and used on another system board of the same model.
2. The BIOS (SPI ROM) on this system board must be the original equipment from the factory
and cannot be used to replace one which has been utilized on other system boards.
3. If you do not follow the methods above, the Intel® Management Engine will not be updated
and will cease to be effective.
Note:
a. You can take advantage of flash tools to update the default configuration of the
BIOS (SPI ROM) to the latest version anytime.
b. When the BIOS IC needs to be replaced, you have to populate it properly onto the
system board after the EEPROM programmer has been burned and follow the
technical person's instructions to confirm that the MAC address should be burned
or not.

Chapter 5 - RAID (CS630-Q370 Only)
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 AMI BIOS.
3. Create a RAID volume.
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.
4. Install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Utility.
Step 1: Connect the Serial ATA Drives
RAID 1 (Mirroring Disk Array with Fault Tolerance)
Refer to chapter 2 for details on connecting 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.
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.
Step 2: Enable RAID in the AMI BIOS
RAID 10 (Mirroring and Striping)
1. Power-on the system then press <Del> to enter the main menu of the AMI 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.
2. Go to “Chipset” menu and select the “PCH-IO Configuration” menu then “SATA And RST
Configuration” menu.
3. Change the “SATA Mode Selection” to “Intel RST Premium With Intel Optane System Acceleration” mode.

Step 3: Create a RAID Volume
Step 4: Install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Utility
1. Go to the “Advanced” menu of the AMI BIOS and select “Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology”.
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.

Appendix A - 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 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
If the display screen remains dark after the system is turned on:
1. Make sure that the monitor’s power switch is on.
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.
3. Check that the video input cable is properly attached to the monitor and the system’s
display adapter.
4. Adjust the brightness of the display by turning the monitor’s brightness control knob.

Appendix A
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.
