Half-inch gap

Page 21

ASUS AP1600R 1U Rackmount Server 21

Placement Direction When installing the motherboard, make sure that you place it into the chassis correctly... The edge with the external ports goes to the rear part of the chassis...

Motherboard Screws Place six (6) screws in the holes indicated by circles to secure the motherboard to the chassis... Do not overtighten the screws... Doing so may damage the motherboard...

2... 2 Motherboard Placement

The motherboard and other internal components of the AP1600R server are already installed as indicated in section 1... 4 Internal Features... Refer to the motherboard users manual for detailed technical information about the motherboard...

NOTE

You must remove the protruding screws (indicated by black circles above) on the rear panel high-density SCSI connector before installing or removing the motherboard... Otherwise, you cannot properly install or remove the motherboard...

NOTE

Place this side towards the rear of the chassis

Page 22

22 Chapter 2: Hardware Setup

2... 3 Installing CPU and heatsink The 604-pin Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) sockets on the PR-DLSR motherboard support dual Intel Xeon processors... This section tells you how to install a CPU... Refer to the motherboard user guide for more information...

A CPU has a gold triangular mark on one corner... This mark indicates the processor Pin 1 that should match a specific corner of the CPU socket...

Incorrect installation of the CPU into the socket may bend the pins and severely damage the CPU!

CAUTION

PR-DLSR

PR-DLSR Socket 604

Xeon Processor

Gold Mark

CPU Socket 1 (outer socket)

CPU Socket 2 (inner socket)

The motherboard supports either one or two CPUs... If you are installing only one CPU, you MUST install it in CPU socket 1...

There is no need to install a CPU terminator even if you are installing only one CPU...

NOTES

Page 23

ASUS AP1600R 1U Rackmount Server 23

2... Position the CPU above the socket as shown...

3... Carefully insert the CPU into the socket until it fits in place...

4... When the CPU is in place, press it firmly on the socket while you push down the socket lever to secure the CPU... The lever clicks on the side tab to indicate that it is locked...

Install the CPU 1... Locate the 604-pin ZIF sockets

on the motherboard... Unlock the socket by pressing the lever sideways, then lift it up to at least 115 angle...

NOTE: Make sure that the socket lever is lifted up to at least 115 angle, otherwise the CPU does not fit in completely...

Marked Corner

The CPU fits only in one correct orientation... DO NOT force the CPU into the socket to prevent bending the pins and damaging the CPU!

CAUTION

Page 24

24 Chapter 2: Hardware Setup

Install the Heatsink 1... Carefully place the heatsink on

top of the installed CPU... The heatsink fits in only one orientation... Take note of the heatsink placement as shown...

2... Use a Phillips screwdriver to twist each of the four screws to secure the heatsink to the motherboard...

You must remove the riser card module and card bracket assembly before installing or removing the heatsink...

NOTE

Page 25

ASUS AP1600R 1U Rackmount Server 25

2... 4 Installing system memory

The motherboard has six Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) sockets that support up to 12GB system memory using registered ECC PC2100/PC1600 DDR DIMMs...

DIMM sockets location

Install a DIMM 1... Unlock a DIMM socket by

pressing the retaining clips outward...

2... Align a DIMM on the socket such that the notch on the DIMM matches the break on the socket...

3... Firmly insert the DIMM into the socket until the retaining clips snap back in place and the DIMM is properly seated...

Remove a DIMM 1... Simultaneously press the

retaining clips outward to unlock the DIMM...

2... Remove the DIMM from the socket...

A DDR DIMM is keyed with a notch so it fits in only one direction... DO NOT force a DIMM into a socket to avoid damaging the DIMM...

2... 5 Installing the backplane and bridge boards 2... 5... 1 Bridge board (BRIDGE-AR12) The bridge board links several functions and signals from the motherboard to the backplane board... The board connects to the pair of connectors labeled BPCON on the motherboard and to another pair on the backplane... Four screws secure the bridge board to the motherboard and backplane (indicated by circles in the figure below)...

2... 5... 2 Bridge board (BRIDGE/S-AR12) If you installed a SCSI RAID card, you may create a RAID configuration using the bundled bridge board for SCSI (BRIDGE/S-AR12)...

1... Remove the metal metal cage over the bridge board... See instructions on removing the metal cage on page 38 (PCI fan section)...

2... Remove the standard bridge board (BRIDGE-AR12) and replace it with the SCSI bridge board (BRIDGE/S-AR12)...

3... Install the bridge board with the 68-pin SCSI connector facing the rear panel (see picture on the next page)... Take note of the BPCON connectors for the motherboard (MB) and the backplane (BP)...

4... Secure the bridge board with four screws...

5... Connect a 68-pin SCSI cable from the SCSI RAID card to the SCSI connector on the bridge board...

2... 5... 3 Backplane board The backplane board includes the four hot-swappable connectors for the SCSI drives accessible from the front panel, and several other connectors that link to the motherboard and main power supply unit...

The backplane board comes pre-installed in the chassis... Normally, you do not need to remove the backplane from the chassis unless it is damaged and needs repair... In case you will have to remove and re-install the backplane, take note of the location of the screws (indicated by circles in the figure below) that secure it to the chassis...

When installed, the SCSI bridge board appears as shown below...

2... 9 Installing CD-ROM and floppy drives

1... When shipped, the rails of the combo box are attached to the sides as shown... Remove the screw closer to the front and set it aside...

2... Loosen the other screw closer to the rear side... Do not remove the screw completely...

3... Turn the rail 180 degrees... The screw hole on the rail should align to the hole on the side of the combo box...

4... Secure the rail with the screw that you removed earlier... Tighten the other screw...

The slim-type CD-ROM drive and slim-type floppy drive are contained in an external combo box... You will need these drives when installing the drivers, utilities, and software applications... The drives are not hot-swappable so you should install them before powering up the system... However, you can detach the cage from the chassis when you do not need it anymore... No need to shut down the system...

The combo box and drives are NOT standard shipping items in the AP1600R system package... These items are sold separately...

NOTE

5... Follow steps 1 to 4 to install the other rail...

6... Insert the rails to the holes on the front panel and match the 68-pin connector at the rear of the combo box with the connector on the front panel...

7... Firmly push the combo box into the chassis until it fits in place...

In case you need to replace either the CD-ROM or the floppy drive inside the combo box, follow these steps...

1... Use a Philips (cross) screwdriver to remove the screws the secure the drives to the combo box...

2... To remove the CD-ROM drive, insert the end of the screwdriver into the upper hole on the side of the combo box and lightly push the drive toward the front... The drive slips out for about an inch... Pull the drive out of the combo box...
