• 165mm (6.49") x 115mm (4.53")
• 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.
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

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 Gigabit LAN controllers support up to 1Gbps data transmission.
• Audio
The Realtek ALC888 audio codec provides 5.1-channel High Definition audio output.
• 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.

• 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.
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.
• 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.
• RTC Timer
The RTC installed on the system board allows your system to automatically power-on on the
set date and time.

Chapter 3 - BIOS Setup
Legends
Overview
The BIOS is a progr am that tak es care of the basic lev el of communication between the CPU
and peripherals. It contains codes f or various advanced features found in this system board.
The BIOS allows y ou to configure the system and sa ve the configur ation in a bat tery-backed
CMOS so that the data retains ev en when the power is of f. In gener al, the inf ormation stored
in the CMOS RAM of the EEPROM will sta y unchanged unless a configur ation change has been
made such as a hard driv e replaced or a device added.
It is possible that the CMOS bat tery will f ail causing CMOS data loss. If this happens, y ou need
to install a new CMOS bat tery and reconfigure the BIOS set tings.
Note:
The BIOS is constantly updated to impro ve the perf ormance of the system board;
therefore the BIOS screens in this chapter ma y not appear the same as the actual
one. These screens are f or reference purpose only.
Default Configuration
Most of the configur ation settings are either predefined according to the Load Optimal Def aults
settings which are stored in the BIOS or are automatically detected and configured without
requiring any actions. There are a f ew settings that y ou may need to change depending on
your system configur ation.

The BIOS Setup Utilit y does not require an oper ating system to run. After y ou 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 “R eset” button. You may also
restart the system by pressing the <Ctrl> <Alt> and <Del> k eys simultaneously.

Chapter 5 - Digital I/O Programming Guide
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 P ort Register (register 0) reflects the incoming logic lev els of the pins, regardless of whether the pin if defined as an input or output by the Configur ation Register. They
act only on the red oper ation. Writes to this register ha ve no ef fect. The def ault value (X) is
determined by the externally applied logic lev el. Before a red oper ation, a write tr ansmission
is sent with the command byte to indicate to the I 2C device that the Input P ort Regiser will be
accessed next.

The Onput P ort Register (register 1) shows the outgoing logic lev els of the pins defined as
outputs by the Configur ation Register. Bit v alues in this register ha ve no ef fect on pins defined
as inputs. In turns, reads from this register reflect the v alue that is in the flip-flop contolling
the output selection, not the actual pin v alue.

The Polarity Inversion Register (register 2) allows polarit y inversion of the pins defined as

Appendix C - Troubleshooting Checklist
The picture seems to be constantly moving.
Troubleshooting Checklist
1. The monitor has lost its v ertical sync. Adjust the monitor ’s vertical sync.
This chapter of the manual is designed to help y ou with problems that y ou may encounter
with your personal computer. To efficiently troubleshoot y our system, treat each problem individually. This is to ensure an accur ate diagnosis of the problem in case a problem has multiple
causes.
2. Move away any objects, such as another monitor or f an, that ma y be creating a magnetic
field around the displa y.
3. Make sure y our video card’s output frequencies are supported by this monitor .
Some of the most common things to check when y ou encounter problems while using y our
system are listed below .
The screen seems to be constantly wavering.
1. The power switch of each peripher al device is turned on.
1. If the monitor is close to another monitor , the adjacent monitor ma y need to be turned of f.
Fluorescent lights adjacent to the monitor ma y also cause screen w avering.
2. All cables and power cords are tightly connected.
Power Supply
3. The electrical outlet to which y our peripheral devices are connected is working. T est 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 liv e outlet and the other end
properly plugged into the back of the system.
5. The display’s brightness and contr ast controls are adjusted properly .
2. Make sure that the v oltage selection switch on the back panel is set f or the correct t ype of
voltage you are using.
6. All add-in boards in the expansion slots are seated securely .
3. The power cord ma y have a “short ” or “open”. Inspect the cord and install a new one if
necessary.
7. Any add-in board y ou have installed is designed f or 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 disk ette may not be f ormatted. Format the disk ette and try again.
2. Check that one end of the monitor ’s power cord is properly at tached 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 disk ette that is not write-protected.
3. Check that the video input cable is properly at tached to the monitor and the system’ s
display adapter.
3. You may be writing to the wrong driv e. Check the path statement to mak e sure y ou are
writing to the targeted driv e.
4. Adjust the brightness of the displa y by turning the monitor ’s brightness control knob .
4. There is not enough space left on the disk ette. Use another disk ette with adequate stor age
space.

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 of f the system, re-install the card and power up the system.
1. Make sure the correct driv e type for the hard disk driv e has been entered in the BIOS .
2. Check the jumper set tings to ensure that the jumpers are properly set.
2. If the system is configured with two hard driv es, make sure the bootable (first) hard driv e
is configured as Master and the second hard driv e is configured as Sla ve. The master hard
drive must ha ve an activ e/bootable partition.
3. Verify that all memory modules are seated securely into the memory sock ets.
4. Make sure the memory modules are in the correct locations.
Excessively long formatting period.
5. If the board f ails to f unction, place the board on a flat surf ace and seat all sock eted components. Gently press each component into the sock et.
If your hard driv e takes an ex cessively long period of time to f ormat, it is lik ely a cable connection problem. Howev er, if y our hard driv e has a large capacit y, it will tak e a longer time to
format.
6. If you made changes to the BIOS set tings, re-enter setup and load the BIOS def aults.
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 at tached serial device works by at taching 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 ma y be due to the onboard
I/O or the address set ting.
4. Make sure the COM set tings and I/O address are configured correctly .
Keyboard
Nothing happens when a key on the keyboard was pressed.
1. Make sure the k eyboard is properly connected.
2. Make sure there are no objects resting on the keyboard and that no k eys are pressed dur ing the booting process.
