Introduction to the AM4 CPU
The surface of the AM4 CPU has a
yellow triangle to assist in correctly
lining up the CPU for motherboard
placement. The yellow triangle is
the Pin 1 indicator.
Important
y When changing the processor, the system configuration could be cleared and reset
BIOS to default values, due to the AM4 processors architecture.
y Always unplug the power cord from the power outlet before installing or removing
the CPU.
y When installing a CPU, always remember to install a CPU heatsink. A CPU heatsink
is necessary to prevent overheating and maintain system stability.
y Confirm that the CPU heatsink has formed a tight seal with the CPU before booting
your system.
y Overheating can seriously damage the CPU and motherboard. Always make sure
the cooling fans work properly to protect the CPU from overheating. Be sure to apply
an even layer of thermal paste (or thermal tape) between the CPU and the heatsink to
enhance heat dissipation.
y If you purchased a separate CPU and heatsink/ cooler, Please refer to the
documentation in the heatsink/ cooler package for more details about installation.

Memory module installation recommendation
DIMMA1
DIMMB1
DIMMA1
Important
y Always insert memory modules in the DIMMA1 slot first.
y Due to chipset resource usage, the available capacity of memory will be a little less
than the amount of installed.
y Based on processor specification, the Memory DIMM voltage below 1.35V is
suggested to protect the processor.
y Some memory modules may operate at a lower frequency than the marked value
when overclocking due to the memory frequency operates dependent on its Serial
Presence Detect (SPD). Go to BIOS and find the DRAM Frequency! to set the memory
frequency if you want to operate the memory at the marked or at a higher frequency.
y It is recommended to use a more efficient memory cooling system for full DIMMs
installation or overclocking.
y The stability and compatibility of installed memory module depend on installed CPU
and devices when overclocking.
y Due to AM4 processor/memory controller official specification limitation, the
frequency of memory modules may operate lower than the marked value under the
default state. Please refer www.msi.com for more information on compatible memory.

* For Ryzen™ 1st and 2nd Generation processors
** For Ryzen™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics processors
*** For Athlon™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics processors
Important
y If you install a large and heavy graphics card, you need to use a tool such as MSI
Gaming Series Graphics Card Bolster to support its weight to prevent deformation of
the slot.
y When adding or removing expansion cards, always turn off the power supply and
unplug the power supply power cable from the power outlet. Read the expansion
cards documentation to check for any necessary additional hardware or software
changes.
SATA1~4: SATA 6Gb/s Connectors
These connectors are SATA 6Gb/s interface ports. Each connector can connect to one
SATA device.

Important
y Please do not fold the SATA cable at a 90-degree angle. Data loss may result during
transmission otherwise.
y SATA cables have identical plugs on either sides of the cable. However, it is
recommended that the flat connector be connected to the motherboard for space
saving purposes.

Overview of Components
CPU_FAN1, SYS_FAN1: Fan Connectors
Fan connectors can be classified as PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) Mode or DC Mode.
PWM Mode fan connectors provide constant 12V output and adjust fan speed with
speed control signal. DC Mode fan connectors control fan speed by changing voltage.
When you plug a 3-pin (Non-PWM) fan to a fan connector in PWM mode, the fan speed
will always maintain at 100%, which might create a lot of noise. You can follow the
instruction below to adjust the fan connector to PWM or DC Mode. However, with autodetection mode fan connectors, the system will auto detect the fan mode.

Below are the different types of a RAID.
RAID 0
breaks the data into blocks which are written to separate hard drives.
Spreading the hard drive I/O load across independent channels greatly
improves I/O performance.
RAID 1
provides data redundancy by mirroring data between the hard drives and
provides enhanced read performance.
RAID 10 uses four hard drives to create a combination of RAID 0 and 1 by forming a
RAID 0 array from two RAID 1 arrays.

Arrays section must be the bootable array. The system boots only from the first array
in the Arrays section. As necessary, use the Swap Two Arrays feature to swap arrays
and place the bootable array in the first position.
To create an array
1. At the Main Menu, use the arrow keys to highlight Create Array and press Enter.
2. Select the disks with which to create the array by pressing Insert key.

Important
If more than one array is created, install the operating system to any of them.
However, a small amount of boot information is always written to a disk(s) in the first
array (Array 1) of the Array section, regardless on which array the operating system is
installed.
If anything happens to a disk in Array 1, the system might not be able to boot. It is
recommended that the user install the operating system on an AMD-RAID bootable
array at a redundant RAID level such as RAID1 or RAID5 and swap the array into the
first position, if it is not already Array 1.

Troubleshooting
Before sending the motherboard for RMA
repair, try to go over troubleshooting
guide first to see if your got similar
symptoms as mentioned below.
The power is not on.
y Connect the AC power cord to an
electrical outlet securely.
y Check if all ATX power connectors
like ATX_PWR1, CPU_PWR1 are
connected from the power supply to the
motherboard?
y Some power supply units have a power
button on the rear side, make sure the
button is turned on.
y Check if the power switch cable is
connected to JFP1 pin header properly.
y Verify the Clear CMOS jumper JBAT1 is
set to Keep DATA.
y Test with another known working power
supply of equal or greater wattage.
The power is on, but no signal to
monitor
y Connect the monitor power cord to a
electrical outlet securely.
y Make sure the monitor is turned on.
y Select different inputs on the monitor.
y If 3 long beeps are heard, remove all
memory modules and try to install only
one memory module in the DIMMA1 slot
first and then restart the computer.
y If 1 long 2 short beeps are heard,
remove and reinstall the graphics card
and then restart the computer.
y Test with another known working
graphics card.
The computer does not boot after
updating the BIOS
y Clear the CMOS.
y Use the secondary BIOS to bootup the
system (Only for motherboard with Dual
BIOS)
90
Troubleshooting
Lost BIOS password
y Clear the CMOS, but that will cause
you to lose all customized settings in the
BIOS.
There is no audio
y Adjust the volume.
y Connect the speakers/headphones to
audio ports on the motherboard rear IO
panel.
y Remove secondary speakers/
headphones, HDMI cables, USB audio
devices.

Products with radio functionality (EMF)
This product incorporates a radio transmitting
and receiving device. For computers in normal
use, a separation distance of 20 cm ensures that
radio frequency exposure levels comply with EU
requirements. Products designed to be operated
at closer proximities, such as tablet computers,
comply with applicable EU requirements in typical
operating positions. Products can be operated without
maintaining a separation distance unless otherwise
indicated in instructions specific to the product.
Restrictions for products with radio functionality
CAUTION: IEEE 802.11x wireless LAN with
5.15–5.35 GHz frequency band is restricted
for indoor use only in all European Union
member states, EFTA (Iceland, Norway,
Liechtenstein), and most other European countries
(e.g., Switzerland, Turkey, Republic of Serbia).
Using this WLAN application outdoors might lead to
interference issues with existing radio services.
