Main Memory

NOTE

To be fully compliant with all applicable Intel® SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. If your memory modules do not support SPD, you will see a notification to this effect on the screen at power up. The BIOS will attempt to configure the memory controller for normal operation.

The board has two DIMM sockets and supports the following memory features:

Two independent memory channels with interleaved mode support

Support for non-ECC, unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with x8 organization and single-sided DIMMs with x16 organization

8 GB maximum total system memory (with 2 Gb memory technology)

Minimum total system memory: 512 MB using a 1 Gb x16 module

Serial Presence Detect

DDR3 1333 MHz and DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM DIMMs

NOTE

32-bit operating systems are limited to a maximum of 4 GB of memory. These operating systems will report less than 4 GB because of the memory used by add-in graphics cards and other system resources.

USB 2.0 Support

The board supports up to twelve USB 2.0 ports provided by two EHCI host controllers in the Intel H57 PCH that allow the use of EHCI-compatible drivers.

The port arrangement is as follows:

Six ports via stacked back panel connectors

Six front panel ports via three dual-port internal headers

USB 2.0 support requires both an operating system and drivers that fully support USB 2.0 transfer rates.

Intel Desktop Board DH57JG Product Guide

Serial ATA Support

The board provides four internal SATA connectors and one back panel eSATA connector which support one storage device per connector.

Expandability

Intel Desktop Board DH57JG provides one PCI Express 2.0 x16 connector for system expansion.

Legacy I/O

The board’s Legacy I/O Controller provides the following legacy features:

One serial port header

Serial IRQ interface compatible with serialized IRQ support for PCI Conventional bus systems

Intelligent power management, including a programmable wake-up event interface

The BIOS Setup program provides configuration options for the Legacy I/O controller.

BIOS

The BIOS provides the Power-On Self-Test (POST), the BIOS Setup program, and the PCI Express and SATA auto-configuration utilities. The BIOS is stored in the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) Flash device.

The BIOS can be updated by following the instructions in Chapter 3 starting on page 59.

Serial ATA Auto Configuration

If you install a SATA device (such as a hard drive) in your computer, the autoconfiguration utility in the BIOS automatically detects and configures the device for your computer. You do not need to run the BIOS Setup program after installing a SATA device. You can override the auto-configuration options by specifying manual configuration in the BIOS Setup program.

PCI*/PCI Express Auto Configuration

If you install a PCI Express add-in card in your computer, the PCI Express autoconfiguration utility in the BIOS automatically detects and configures the resources (IRQs, DMA channels, and I/O space) for that add-in card. You do not need to run the BIOS Setup program after you install a PCI Express add-in card.
