How do I enable auto power on?

Enter the BIOS and go to Advanced > PCH-IO Configuration > Auto Power-On. See below for a step by step guide.

Connecting the power supply

  • Unbox the power brick and grab the 5 pin terminal block from the accessory box.
  • Using a flathead screwdriver, turn the two indicated screws counter-clockwise a few turns.
  • The metal holes at the bottom will open up.
  • Insert the power supply wires as shown
  • Turn the screws clockwise to tighten. Firmly hand tighten.
  • Connect the green terminal block to the K700. It is now ready for use. Note that the labeling on the back of the system matches the wires you just installed.
  • Higher wattage configurations of the K700-X2 may use all 4 wires but they are not needed on the K700-SE model.

Disassembly Instructions

K700-SE

Required tools: Torx T10 Driver, P2 Phillips Driver

Opening the K700 does not void the manufacturer’s warranty. However, some precautions are necessary to avoid damaging the unit.

  • Perform this disassembly in an area free of static discharge
  • Before beginning, touch a grounded metal surface to discharge your body of static electricity
  1. Remove the 6x case screws from the sides of the K700 and lift away the bottom cover.
  1. Pull the metal shroud upward out of the case. Tip: grab it by the metal tabs.

The motherboard is now accessible. The figure below details the different thermal pads required from add-on components.

K700-X2

Required tools: Torx T10 Driver, P2 Phillips Driver

Opening the K700 does not void the manufacturer’s warranty. However, some precautions are necessary to avoid damaging the unit.

  • Perform this disassembly in an area free of static discharge
  • Before beginning, touch a grounded metal surface to discharge your body of static electricity
  • Remove 6x torx screws from both sides of the unit.
  • Lift away the bottom cover
  • Carefully cut the zip tie on the power wire and unplug it from the power board. (If equipped)

  • Tuck the power connector into the cutout.
  • It will be pulled through when you remove the X2 module in the next step.
  • Pull the X2 Module off of the unit. Moderate force may be required.

  • The modbay cards and 2.5″ drives are now accessible.

Reassembly

  • Drop the metal shroud back into place. Press downwards in the middle to ensure it is fully seated.
  • Feed the power wire back through the cutout and firmly press the X2 module into place.

  • Reinstall the Torx screws

Enabling Auto Power On

Auto power on will automatically turn on the K700 after power failure. This feature can be enabled in the BIOS.

  • Power on the K700 and immediately press the Del key a few times until you get the “Front Page” menu
  • Use the arrow keys to select “Setup Utility” and press enter
  • Navigate to the Advanced tab and open the PCH-IO Configuration submenu
  • Change the Auto Power-On opttion to Enabled
  • From the Exit tab, Exit Saving Changes
  • Auto power on is now enabled

Clearing the CMOS

If the K700 fails to power on or otherwise function, clearing the CMOS may help restore it to a working state. The CMOS must be reset via this method – removing the battery will not work due to the supercap feature.

  • Unplug the system from all power and peripherals and perform the disassembly steps above.
  • Locate the BIOS_DFLT jumper

  • Short the two pins for 30 seconds with a conductive object such as a screwdriver

  • The CMOS is now clear. Reassemble and power on the unit. It may reboot several times before displaying video.
  • If the unit still fails to function, contact technical support.

Din Mounting Kit Assembly

MTW106 & MTD103

  • Remove the 2x DIN clips and the mounting bracket from the accessory box
  • Install the DIN clips onto the brackets using the small screws that came with the clips.
