Chapter 2 Installation

his is a Mini-ITX form factor motherboard. Before you install the motherboard, study the coniguration of your chassis to ensure that the motherboard its into it.

Pre-installation Precautions

Take note of the following precautions before you install motherboard components or change any motherboard settings.

• Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing the motherboard.

Failure to do so may cause physical injuries to you and damages to motherboard components.

• In order to avoid damage from static electricity to the motherboard’s components,

NEVER place your motherboard directly on a carpet. Also remember to use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safety grounded object before you handle the components.

• Hold components by the edges and do not touch the ICs.

• Whenever you uninstall any components, place them on a grounded anti-static pad or in the bag that comes with the components.

• When placing screws to secure the motherboard to the chassis, please do not overtighten the screws! Doing so may damage the motherboard.

2.1 Installing Memory Modules (SO-DIMM) his motherboard provides two 204-pin DDR3/DDR3L (Double Data Rate 3) SO-

DIMM slots. If only one SO-DIMM module is installed, please install it into DDR3_

A1.

N3700-ITX

N3150-ITX

It is not allowed to install a DDR or DDR2 memory module into a DDR3/DDR3L slot; otherwise, this motherboard and SO-DIMM may be damaged.

he SO-DIMM only its in one correct orientation. It will cause permanent damage to the motherboard and the SO-DIMM if you force the SO-DIMM into the slot at incorrect orientation.

English

2.2 Expansion Slots (PCI Express Slots) here is 1 PCI Express slot and 1 mini-PCI Express slot on the motherboard.

Before installing an expansion card, please make sure that the power supply is switched of or the power cord is unplugged. Please read the documentation of the expansion card and make necessary hardware settings for the card before you start the installation.

PCIe slot:

PCIE1 (PCIe 2.0 x1 slot) is used for PCI Express cards with x1 lane width cards.

mini-PCIe slot:

MINI_PCIE1 (mini-PCIe slot) is used for WiFi module.

2.3 Jumpers Setup he illustration shows how jumpers are setup. When the jumper cap is placed on the pins, the jumper is “Short”. If no jumper cap is placed on the pins, the jumper is “Open”. he illustration shows a 3-pin jumper whose pin1 and pin2 are “Short” when a jumper cap is placed on these 2 pins.

Clear CMOS Jumper

(CLRMOS1)

(see p.5, No. 12)

Default Clear CMOS

CLRMOS1 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup, please turn of the computer and unplug the power cord from the power supply. Ater waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short pin2 and pin3 on CLRMOS1 for 5 seconds. However, please do not clear the

CMOS right ater you update the BIOS. If you need to clear the CMOS when you just inish updating the BIOS, you must boot up the system irst, and then shut it down before you do the clear-CMOS action. Please be noted that the password, date, time, and user default proile will be cleared only if the CMOS battery is removed.

2.4 Onboard Headers and Connectors

Onboard headers and connectors are NOT jumpers. Do NOT place jumper caps over these headers and connectors. Placing jumper caps over the headers and connectors will cause permanent damage to the motherboard.

N3700-ITX

N3150-ITX

System Panel Header

(9-pin PANEL1)

(see p.5, No. 11)

Connect the power switch, reset switch and system status indicator on the chassis to this header according to the pin assignments below. Note the positive and negative pins before connecting the cables.

PWRBTN (Power Switch):

Connect to the power switch on the chassis front panel. You may conigure the way to turn of your system using the power switch.

RESET (Reset Switch):

Connect to the reset switch on the chassis front panel. Press the reset switch to restart the computer if the computer freezes and fails to perform a normal restart.

PLED (System Power LED):

Connect to the power status indicator on the chassis front panel. he LED is on when the system is operating. he LED keeps blinking when the system is in S1/S3 sleep state. he LED is of when the system is in S4 sleep state or powered of (S5).

HDLED (Hard Drive Activity LED):

Connect to the hard drive activity LED on the chassis front panel. he LED is on when the hard drive is reading or writing data.

he front panel design may difer by chassis. A front panel module mainly consists of power switch, reset switch, power LED, hard drive activity LED, speaker and etc.

When connecting your chassis front panel module to this header, make sure the wire assignments and the pin assignments are matched correctly.

Intel® Braswell and Skylake has removed their support for the Enhanced Host

Controller Interface (EHCI – USB2.0) and only kept the eXtensible Host Controller

Interface (XHCI – USB3.0). Due to that fact that XHCI is not included in the

Windows 7 inbox drivers, users may ind it diicult to install Windows 7 operating system because the USB ports on their motherboard won’t work. In order for the

USB ports to function properly, please create a Windows® 7 installation disk with the Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller (xHCI) drivers packed into the ISO ile.

N3700-ITX

N3150-ITX

Requirements

A Windows® 7 installation disk or USB drive

USB 3.0 drivers (included in the ASRock Support CD or website)

A Windows® PC

Win7 USB Patcher (included in the ASRock Support CD or website)

Scenarios

You have an ODD and PS/2 ports:

If there is an optical disc drive, PS/2 ports and PS/2 Keyboard or mouse on your computer, you can skip the instructions below and go ahead to install Windows® 7 OS.

You only have an ODD (For Intel Skylake platforms only):
