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.
• DDR3
DDR3 delivers increased system bandwidth and improved performance. It offers peak data
transfer rate of up to 16Gb/s bandwidth. The advantages of DDR3 are its higher bandwidth
and its increase in performance at a lower power than DDR2.
Note:
*Optional and is not supported in standard model. Please contact your sales representative for more information.
• 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 and DVI-I (DVID signal) 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 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.
• 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) and 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.
• Gigabit LAN
Two Intel® I210 PCI Express Gigabit LAN controllers support up to 1Gbps data transmission.
• Audio
The Realtek ALC886 audio codec provides 5.1-channel High Definition audio output.

• Wake-On-LAN
• Wake-On-PS/2
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.
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.
• Wake-On-USB
• 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.
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:
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.

module can be plugged into the socket in only one way.
The system board is equipped with a surface mount LGA 1150 socket. This socket is exclusively designed for installing a LGA 1150 packaged Intel CPU.
Important:
1. Before you proceed, make sure (1) the LGA 1150 socket comes with a protective
cap, (2) the cap is not damaged and (3) the socket’s contact pins are not bent. If
the cap is missing or the cap and/or contact pins are damaged, contact your dealer
immediately.
2. Make sure to keep the protective cap. RMA requests will be accepted and processed only if the LGA 1150 socket comes with the protective cap.
7. Seat the module vertically, pressing it down firmly until it is completely seated in the
socket.

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 push-pins
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.
3. Orient the heat sink such that
the CPU fan’s cable is nearest
the CPU fan connector.
“Locked” position of
push-pin
5. Connect the CPU fan’s
cable to the CPU fan
connector on the system
board.

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 board supports the chassis intrusion detection function. Connect the chassis intrusion
sensor cable from the chassis to this connector. When the system’s power is on and a chassis
intrusion occurred, an alarm will sound. When the system’s power is off and a chassis intrusion
occurred, the alarm will sound only when the system restarts.
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.
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, 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

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.
Entering the BIOS Setup Utility

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 Onput Port Register (register 1) shows the outgoing logic levels of the pins defined as
outputs by the Configuration Register. Bit values in this register have no effect on pins defined
as inputs. In turns, reads from this register reflect the value that is in the flip-flop contolling
the output selection, not the actual pin value.

The Polarity Inversion Register (register 2) allows polarity inversion of the pins defined as
inputs by the Configuration Register. If a bit in this register is set (written with 1), the corresponding port pin’s polarity is inverted. If a bit in this register is clear (written with a 0), the
corresponding port pin’s original polarity is retained.

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.
