Equipment Racks
To avoid injury or damage to the equipment:
· Observe local occupational health and safety requirements and guidelines
for manual materials handling.
· Do not attempt to move a rack by yourself; a minimum of two people are
needed to move a rack.
· Do not attempt to move a fully loaded rack. Remove equipment from the
rack before moving it.
· Do not attempt to move a rack on an incline that is greater than 10 degrees
from the horizontal.
· Make sure the rack is properly secured to the floor or ceiling.
· Make sure the stabilizing feet are attached to the rack if it is a single-rack
installation.
· Make sure racks are coupled together if it is a multiple-rack installation.
· Make sure the rack is level and stable before installing an appliance in the
rack.
7
http://www.tyan.com
· Make sure the leveling jacks are extended to the floor.
· Make sure the full weight of the rack rests on the leveling jacks.
· Always load the rack from the bottom up. Load the heaviest component in
the rack first.
· Make sure the rack is level and stable before pulling a component out of the
rack.
· Make sure only one component is extended at a time. A rack might become
unstable if more than one component is extended.
To avoid damage to the equipment:
· The rack width and depth must allow for proper serviceability and cable
management.
· Ensure that there is adequate airflow in the rack. Improper installation or
restricted airflow can damage the equipment.
· The rack cannot have solid or restricted airflow doors. You must use a
mesh door on the front and back of the rack or remove the doors to ensure
adequate air flow to the system.
· If you install the Model in a rack, do not place equipment on top of the unit.
It will cause restricted airflow and might cause damage to the equipment.
· Make sure the product is properly matted with the rails. Products that are
improperly matted with the rails might be unstable.
· Verify that the AC power supply branch circuit that provides power to the
rack is not overloaded. This will reduce the risk of personal injury, fire, or
damage to the equipment. The total rack load should not exceed 80 percent
of the branch circuit rating. Consult the electrical authority having jurisdiction

Chapter 2: Setting Up
2.0.1
Before you Begin
This chapter explains how to install the CPUs, CPU heatsinks,
memory modules, and hard drives. Instructions on inserting add on
cards are also given.
2.0.2
Work Area
Make sure you have a stable, clean working environment. Dust and
dirt can get into components and cause malfunctions. Use
containers to keep small components separated. Putting all small
components in separate containers prevents them from becoming
lost. Adequate lighting and proper tools can prevent you from
accidentally damaging the internal components.
2.0.3
Tools
The following procedures require only a few tools, including the
following:
 A cross head (Phillips) screwdriver
 A grounding strap or an anti-static pad
Most of the electrical and mechanical connections can be
disconnected with your hands. It is recommended that you do not
use pliers to remove connectors as it may damage the soft metal or
plastic parts of the connectors.
33
http://www.tyan.com
2.0.4
Precautions
Components and electronic circuit boards can be damaged by
discharges of static electricity. Working on a system that is connected
to a power supply can be extremely dangerous. Follow the guidelines
below to avoid damage to GF83-B7074 or injury to yourself.

Ground yourself properly before removing the top cover of the
system. Unplug the power from the power supply and then
touch a safely grounded object to release static charge (i.e.
power supply case). If available, wear a grounded wrist strap.
Alternatively, discharge any static electricity by touching the
bare metal chassis of the unit case, or the bare metal body of
any other grounded appliance.

Avoid touching motherboard components, IC chips, connectors,
memory modules, and leads.

The motherboard is pre-installed in the system. When
removing the motherboard, always place it on a grounded
anti-static surface until you are ready to reinstall it.

Hold electronic circuit boards by the edges only. Do not touch
the components on the board unless it is necessary to do so.
Do not flex or stress circuit boards.

Leave all components inside the static-proof packaging that
they ship with until they are ready for installation.

After replacing optional devices, make sure all screws, springs,
or other small parts are in place and are not left loose inside
the case. Metallic parts or metal flakes can cause electrical
shorts.
CAUTION: Please note that the following illustrations may not
look exactly like the rackmount server you purchased.
Therefore, the illustrations should be held for your reference
only.

Chapter 4: Motherboard Information
You are now ready to install your motherboard.
How to install our products right… the first time
The first thing you should do is read this user’s manual. It contains important
information that will make configuration and setup much easier. Here are some
precautions you should take when installing your motherboard:
(1) Ground yourself properly before removing your motherboard from the
antistatic bag. Unplug the power from your computer power supply and
then touch a safely grounded object to release static charge (i.e. power
supply case). For the safest conditions, MiTAC recommends wearing a
static safety wrist strap.
(2) Hold the motherboard by its edges and do not touch the bottom of the
board, or flex the board in any way.
(3) Avoid touching the motherboard components, IC chips, connectors,
memory modules, and leads.
(4) Place the motherboard on a grounded antistatic surface or on the antistatic
bag that the board was shipped in.
(5) Inspect the board for damage.
The following pages include details on how to install your motherboard into your
chassis, as well as installing the processor, memory, disk drives and cables.
Caution!
1.
To avoid damaging the motherboard and associated
components, do not use torque force greater than
7kgf/cm (6.09 lb/in) on each mounting screw for
motherboard installation.
2.
Do not apply power to the board if it has been
damaged.

Thermal Interface Material
There are two types of
thermal interface materials
designed for use with the
processors.
The most common material
comes as a small pad
attached to the heat sink at
the time of purchase. There
should be a protective cover
over the material. Take care
not to touch this material.
Simply remove the protective
cover and place the heat sink
on the processor.
The second type of interface
material is usually packaged
separately. It is commonly
referred to as ‘thermal
compound’. Simply apply a
thin layer on to the CPU lid
(applying too much will
actually reduce the cooling).
NOTE: Always check with the manufacturer of the heat sink & processor to
ensure that the thermal interface material is compatible with the processor and
meets the manufacturer’s warranty requirements.
82
http://www.tyan.com
4.6
Tips on Installing Motherboard in Chassis
Before installing your motherboard, make sure your chassis has the necessary
motherboard support studs installed. These studs are usually metal and are gold in
color. Usually, the chassis manufacturer will pre-install the support studs. If you are
unsure of stud placement, simply lay the motherboard inside the chassis and align
the screw holes of the motherboard to the studs inside the case. If there are any
studs missing, you will know right away since the motherboard will not be able to be
securely installed. Position the mainboard into the chassis and push it to lock in
place. Use two thumb screws to secure it to the chassis.
NOTE: Be especially careful to look for extra stand-offs. If there are any stand-offs
present that are not aligned with a mounting hole on the motherboard, it will likely
short components on the back of the motherboard when installed. This will cause
malfunction and/or damage to your motherboard.
Some chassis include plastic studs instead of metal. Although the plastic studs are
usable, MiTAC recommends using metal studs with screws that will fasten the
motherboard more securely in place.
83
http://www.tyan.com
Below is a chart detailing what the most common motherboard studs look like and
how they should be installed.
4.7
Finishing Up
Congratulations on making it this far! You have finished setting up the hardware
aspect of your computer. Before closing up your chassis, make sure that all cables
and wires are connected properly, especially SATA cables and most importantly,
jumpers. You may have difficulty powering on your system if the motherboard
jumpers are not set correctly.
In the rare circumstance that you have experienced difficulty, you can find help by
asking your vendor for assistance. If they are not available for assistance, please
find setup information and documentation online at our website or by calling your
vendor’s support line.

Chapter 5: BIOS Setup
5.1
About the BIOS
The BIOS is the basic input/output system, the firmware on the motherboard that
enables your hardware to interface with your software. The BIOS determines what a
computer can do without accessing programs from a disk. The BIOS contains all the
code required to control the keyboard, display screen, disk drives, serial
communications, and a number of miscellaneous functions. This chapter describes
the various BIOS settings that can be used to configure your system.
The BIOS section of this manual is subject to change without notice and is provided
for reference purposes only. The settings and configurations of the BIOS are current
at the time of print and are subject to change, and therefore may not match exactly
what is displayed on screen.
This section describes the BIOS setup program. The setup program lets you modify
basic configuration settings. The settings are then stored in a dedicated,
battery-backed memory (called NVRAM) that retains the information even when the
power is turned off.
To start the BIOS setup utility:
1.
Turn on or reboot your system.
2.
Press <F2> or <Del> during POST to start the BIOS setup utility.
5.1.1

The table below shows how to navigate in the setup program using the keyboard.

5.1.2
Getting Help
Pressing [F1] will display a small help window that describes the appropriate
keys to use and the possible selections for the highlighted item. To exit the Help
Window, press [ESC] or the [Enter] key again.
5.1.3
In Case of Problems
If you have trouble booting your computer after making and saving the changes with
the BIOS setup program, you can restart the computer by holding the power button
down until the computer shuts off (usually within 4 seconds); resetting by pressing
CTRL-ALT-DEL; or clearing the CMOS.
The best advice is to only alter settings that you thoroughly understand. In particular,
do not change settings in the Chipset section unless you are absolutely sure of what
you are doing. The Chipset defaults have been carefully chosen either by MiTAC or
your system manufacturer for best performance and reliability. Even a seemingly
small change to the Chipset setup options may cause the system to become
unstable or unusable.
5.1.4
Setup Variations
Not all systems have the same BIOS setup layout or options. While the basic look
and function of the BIOS setup remains more or less the same for most systems, the
appearance of your Setup screen may differ from the charts shown in this section.
Each system design and chipset combination requires a custom configuration. In
addition, the final appearance of the Setup program depends on the system
designer. Your system designer may decide that certain items should not be
available for user configuration, and remove them from the BIOS setup program.
NOTE: The following pages provide the details of BIOS menu. Please be aware that
the BIOS menus are continually changing due to continual BIOS updates over the
product lifespan of the motherboard. The BIOS menus provided are current as of the
date when this manual was written. Please visit TYAN’s website at
http://www.tyan.com for information on BIOS updates available for this specific
motherboard.

Flow Control
Flow Control can prevent data loss from buffer overflow. When sending data, if the
receiving buffers are full, a ‘stop’ signal can be sent to stop the data flow. Once the
buffers are empty, a ‘start’ signal can be sent to restart the flow. Hardware flow
control uses two wires to send start/stop signal.

Appendix III: Technical Support
If a problem arises with your system, you should first turn to your dealer for direct
support. Your system has most likely been configured or designed by them and they
should have the best idea of what hardware and software your system contains.
Hence, they should be of the most assistance for you. Furthermore, if you purchased
your system from a dealer near you, take the system to them directly to have it
serviced instead of attempting to do so yourself (which can have expensive
consequence).
If these options are not available for you then MiTAC International Corporation can
help. Besides designing innovative and quality products for over a decade, MiTAC
has continuously offered customers service beyond their expectations. TYAN’s
website (http://www.tyan.com) provides easy-to-access resources such as in-depth
Linux Online Support sections with downloadable Linux drivers and comprehensive
compatibility reports for chassis, memory and much more. With all these convenient
resources just a few keystrokes away, users can easily find their latest software and
operating system components to keep their systems running as powerful and
productive as possible. MiTAC also ranks high for its commitment to fast and friendly
customer support through email. By offering plenty of options for users, MiTAC
serves multiple market segments with the industry’s most competitive services to
support them.
Please feel free to contact us directly for this service at tech-support@tyan.com
Help Resources:
1. See the beep codes section of this manual.
2. See the TYAN’s website for FAQ’s, bulletins, driver updates, and other
information: http://www.tyan.com
3. Contact your dealer for help before calling TYAN.

Returning Merchandise for Service
During the warranty period, contact your distributor or system vendor FIRST for
any product problems. This warranty only covers normal customer use and does
not cover damages incurred during shipping or failure due to the alteration,
misuse, abuse, or improper maintenance of products.
NOTE:
A receipt or copy of your invoice marked with the date of
purchase is required before any warranty service can be
rendered. You may obtain service by calling the
manufacturer for a Return Merchandise Authorization
(RMA) number. The RMA number should be prominently
displayed on the outside of the shipping carton and the
package should be mailed prepaid.
TYAN will pay to have the board shipped back to you.
