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.
y This motherboard is designed to support overclocking. Before attempting to
overclock, please make sure that all other system components can tolerate
overclocking. Any attempt to operate beyond product specifications is not
recommended. MSI® does not guarantee the damages or risks caused by inadequate
operation beyond product specifications.

Important
y Always insert memory modules in the DIMMA2 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 CPU specification, the Memory DIMM voltage below 1.35V is suggested to
protect the CPU.
y Please note that the maximum capacity of addressable memory is 4GB or less
for 32-bit Windows OS due to the memory address limitation. Therefore, we
recommended that you to install 64-bit Windows OS if you want to install more than
4GB memory on the motherboard.
y Some memory 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 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 For a single PCIe x16 expansion card installation with optimum performance, using
the PCI_E1 slot is recommended.
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.

AMD RAID Configuration
The following are the RAID levels supported by RAIDXpert2.
RAID 0
(Striping) 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
(Mirroring) provides data redundancy by mirroring data between the hard
drives and provides enhanced read performance.
RAID 10 (Striped RAID1 Sets) uses four hard drives to create a combination of RAID 0
and 1 by forming a RAID 0 array from two RAID 1 arrays.
Volume (JBOD) provides the ability to link-together storage from one or several
disks, regardless of the size of the space on those disks. Useful in
scavenging space on disks unused by other disks in the array. Does not
provide performance benefits or data redundancy.
RAIDABLE (also known as RAID Ready) allows the user to add more storage space or
create a redundant array after a system is installed.

Initializing Disks
New disks and legacy disks must be initialized before they can be used to create an
AMD-RAID array. Initialization writes AMD-RAID configuration information (metadata)
to a disk.
Important
y If a disk is part of an AMD-RAID array, the disk cannot be selected for initialization.
To initial the disk anyway, delete the AMD-RAID array. Data on the disk is deleted
during initialization so ensure the correct disks are chosen to initialize.
y A legacy disk can contain valid data. When a legacy disk is initialized, all data on the
disk is lost.
To initialize disks
1. As previously mentioned, enable RAIDXpert2 Configuration Utility.

Creating Arrays
Arrays can be created after the disks are initialized.
Important
y For redundant arrays, the Create process is not started until after the operating
system and AMD-RAID OS drivers have been installed and the system has booted to
the operating system. However, the arrays are immediately available to use for either a
bootable array or a data array.
y Array numbers are valid only for a given boot and might be different in the
RAIDXpert2 Configuration Utility and RAIDXpert2. If a permanent label is required, use
the RAIDXpert2 Web GUI Array Naming feature.
y At any point in the procedure, return to a prior window by pressing ESC.
y If the system is booted from an AMD-RAID bootable array, the first array in the
Arrays section must be the bootable array. The system boots only from the first array
in the Arrays section.
To create an array
1. As previously mentioned, enable RAIDXpert2 Configuration Utility.
2. Go to BIOS > SETTINGS > Advanced > RAIDXpert2 Configuration Utility > Array
Management > Create Array sub-menu.
3. Select the RAID level from the Select RAID Level drop down menu.
