Quick Start 1 Safety Information ∙ The components included in this package are prone to damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD). Please adhere to the following instructions to ensure successful computer assembly. ∙ Ensure that all components are securely connected. Loose connections may cause the computer to not recognize a component or fail to start. ∙ Hold the motherboard by the edges to avoid touching sensitive components. ∙ It is recommended to wear an electrostatic discharge (ESD) wrist strap when handling the motherboard to prevent electrostatic damage. If an ESD wrist strap is not available, discharge yourself of static electricity by touching another metal object before handling the motherboard. ∙ Store the motherboard in an electrostatic shielding container or on an anti-static pad whenever the motherboard is not installed. ∙ Before turning on the computer, ensure that there are no loose screws or metal components on the motherboard or anywhere within the computer case. ∙ Do not boot the computer before installation is completed. This could cause permanent damage to the components as well as injury to the user. ∙ If you need help during any installation step, please consult a certified computer technician. ∙ Always turn off the power supply and unplug the power cord from the power outlet before installing or removing any computer component. ∙ Keep this user guide for future reference. ∙ Keep this motherboard away from humidity. ∙ Make sure that your electrical outlet provides the same voltage as is indicated on the PSU, before connecting the PSU to the electrical outlet. ∙ Place the power cord such a way that people can not step on it. Do not place anything over the power cord. ∙ All cautions and warnings on the motherboard should be noted. ∙ If any of the following situations arises, get the motherboard checked by service personnel: ▪ Liquid has penetrated into the computer. ▪ The motherboard has been exposed to moisture. ▪ The motherboard does not work well or you can not get it work according to user guide. ▪ The motherboard has been dropped and damaged. ▪ The motherboard has obvious sign of breakage. ∙ Do not leave this motherboard in an environment above 60°C (140°F), it may damage the motherboard. 2 Safety Information Installing a Processor 2 ⚽ youtu.be/4ce91YC3Oww 1 3 7 4 5 9 6 8 Safety Information 3

The golden triangle is the Pin 1 indicator. ⚠Important ∙ Always unplug the power cord from the power outlet before installing or removing the CPU. ∙ Please retain the CPU protective cap after installing the processor. MSI will deal with Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) requests if only the motherboard comes with the protective cap on the CPU socket. ∙ When installing a CPU, always remember to install a CPU heatsink. A CPU heatsink is necessary to prevent overheating and maintain system stability. ∙ Confirm that the CPU heatsink has formed a tight seal with the CPU before booting your system. ∙ 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. ∙ Whenever the CPU is not installed, always protect the CPU socket pins by covering the socket with the plastic cap. ∙ If you purchased a separate CPU and heatsink/ cooler, Please refer to the documentation in the heatsink/ cooler package for more details about installation. ∙ 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. 26 Overview of Components DIMM Slots DIMMA1 DIMMB1 Channel A Channel B DIMMA2 DIMMB2 Memory module installation recommendation DIMMA1 DIMMB1 DIMMA2 DIMMA2 DIMMA2 DIMMB2 DIMMB2 ⚠Important ∙ Always insert memory modules in the DIMMA2 slot first. ∙ To ensure system stability for Dual channel mode, memory modules must be of the same type, number and density. ∙ 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. ∙ It is recommended to use a more efficient memory cooling system for full DIMMs installation or overclocking. ∙ The stability and compatibility of installed memory module depend on installed CPU and devices when overclocking. ∙ Please refer msi.com for more information on compatible memory.

Read the expansion card’s documentation to check for any necessary additional hardware or software changes. 28 Overview of Components

The UEFI BIOS firmware infrastructure has many new functions and advantages that traditional BIOS cannot achieve. It will fully support future PCs and devices that comply with UEFI firmware architecture. ⚠Important The term BIOS in this user guide refers to UEFI BIOS unless otherwise noted. UEFI advantages ∙ Fast booting - UEFI can directly boot the operating system and save the BIOS self test process. And also eliminates the time to switch to CSM mode during POST ∙ Supports for hard drive partitions larger than 2 TB. ∙ Supports more than 4 primary partitions with a GUID Partition Table (GPT). ∙ Supports unlimited number of partitions ∙ Supports full capabilities of new devices - new devices may not provide backward compatibility. ∙ Supports secure startup - UEFI can check the validity of the operating system to ensure that no malware tampers with the startup process. Incompatible UEFI cases ∙ 32-bit Windows operating system - this motherboard supports only 64-bit Windows 10 operating system. ∙ Older graphics card - the system will detect your graphics card. When display a warning message There is no GOP (Graphics Output protocol) support detected in this graphics card. ⚠Important We recommend that you to replace with a GOP/UEFI compatible graphics card or using integrated graphics from CPU for having normal function.. How to check the BIOS mode? After entering the BIOS, find the BIOS Mode at the top of the screen.

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 5 provides data striping at the byte level and also stripe error correction information. This results in excellent performance and good fault tolerance. 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. RAID level comparison RAID 0 RAID 1 RAID 5 RAID 10 Minimum # drives 2 2 3 4 Data protection None Excellent Excellent Excellent Read performance Excellent OK Good OK Write performance Excellent Good OK Good Capacity utilization 100% 50% 67%~(1-1/n) 50% ⚠Important All the information/ volumes/ pictures listed in your system might differ from the illustrations in this appendix.
