Features
•
•
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.
•
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.
DDR3L
DDR3L is a higher performance DDR3 SDRAM interface providing less voltage and higher
speed successor. DDR3L SDRAM modules support 1066/1600MHz 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.
•
•
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 x1.
•
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.
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.
•
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.
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 VGA, LVDS and DP++/
eDP(eDP available upon request) interfaces for display outputs.
•
Wake-On-LAN
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.
Gigabit LAN
Two Intel® I211AT PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controllers support up to 1Gbps data transmission.
•
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.
Audio
The Realtek ALC888 audio codec provides 5.1-channel High Definition audio output.

•
RTC Timer
The RTC installed on the system board allows your system to automatically power-on on the
set date and time.
•
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 3.0. 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 DIMM Module
The system board supports the following memory interface.
Single Channel (SC)
Note:
The system board used in the following illustrations may not resemble the actual
board. These illustrations are for reference only.
Data will be accessed in chunks of 64 bits (8B) from the memory channels.
Dual Channel (DC)
1. Make sure the PC and all other peripheral devices connected to it has been powered down.
Data will be accessed in chunks of 128 bits from the memory channels. Dual channel provides
better system performance because it doubles the data transfer rate.
2. Disconnect all power cords and cables.
3. Locate the SODIMM socket on the system board.
Important:
1. The DDR3L sockets support no mixed Raw Card.
2. For dual channel population, the two channels must be populated the same DRAM
density, chip width, number ranks and dimm speed.
4. Note the key on the socket. The key ensures the module can be plugged into the socket in
only one direction.

Chapter 2
Installing the Heat Sink
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.
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.
1. On the solder side of the board, match the retention module base to the mounting holes
around the CPU socket.
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.
Clip
Clip
Retention module base
2. Turn to the component side of the board making sure the retention module base is positioned and fitted properly under the board.
3. Apply a thin layer of thermal paste on top of the CPU. Do not spread the paste all over
the surface. When you later place the heat sink on top, the compound will disperse evenly.
Important:
When installing one DDR3L SODIMM only, make sure to install it into the SODIMM 1
socket.

Jumper Settings
4. Place the 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 heat sink assembly because it provides adequate cooling to the components of the
system board.
Clear CMOS Data
Turn each Phillips head screw half way down first to initially stabilize the heat sink onto
the board, then finally tighten each screw.

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.

Entering the BIOS Setup Utility
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.
Submenu
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

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 and specific instructions about how to
update BIOS with the flash utility.
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.
When you download the given BIOS file, you may find a BIOS flash utility attached with the
BIOS file. This is the utility for performing BIOS updating procedure. For your convenience, we
will also provide you with an auto-execution file in the BIOS file downloaded. This auto-execution file will bring you directly to the flash utility menu soon after system boots up and finishes
running the boot files in your boot disk.
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.
RRead file successfully.
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.

Appendix A
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 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 Troubleshooting Checklist
www.dfi.com
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.
