1 out of 5 eggsNo POST, no video signal

Pros: It's a feature rich motherboard.

Cons: Will not post or give a video signal with onboard VGA chip or through an add-on PCIe video card and will not reset or power cycle through a remote IPMI Ethernet session. I performed most extensive, exhaustive troubleshooting that I've ever done on a motherboard (over 40 builds, over 10 years) and could not get this board to POST. Just a sample of my troubleshooting: single CPU testing, three different batches of RAM, brand new Corsair AX750 w/2X EPS12v connectors (excellent PSU, thank Newegg!), fresh CMOS battery, different monitors and video cables, remote IPMI. (that's just for starters) The board's LAN ports were good, the CPU fans both would spin, LEDs 2 and 4 would light, LED6 (SAS) blinked continuously, but nothing else seemed to work. Could this board have been damaged when it was shipped to me? Perhaps, but it arrived in physicaly prestine condition. Nonetheless, I spent probably 18 hours trying to bring this thing out of a coma and was unsuccessful.

Other Thoughts: I did not purchase this board at Newegg. It is second-hand (but well cared for and looked new), from a trusted seller. From what I've seen on Internet searches, it would appear this motherboard has an unexplained incompatiblity with an unknown number and type of power supply units. The manual states the board may not be suitable for some motherboards, but provides no definitive information. Guess Tyan wants users to roll the dice.

1 out of 5 eggsTyan boards are horrible

Pros: None doesnt even Post. It gets better read on. Tyan you have lost your edge. Never again will I use a Tyan MOB.

Cons: Everything other then its a G34.
Board died within a month.
Terriable customer support, lame repair policy.
Brand new motherboard, they wanted me to send the board back for repair and then they would send back to me total time 2-3 weeks with me paying shipping. Newegg just took it back and sent me a diffrent board thanks Newegg!

Other Thoughts: They dont even care that they are not going to help.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work

Pros: Nice board, has SAS.

Cons: Won't POST, LED6 blinks and no video. RMA'd and replacement does the same. Tried two (yes two) Corsair AX1200 with both 8 pin CPU power leads connected, no dice.

4 out of 5 eggsSpecialized tool, RAID not worth it

Pros: This motherboard is great for virtualization. You've got sockets for two 8-core CPUs (12 core is available), sixteen memory sockets and four gigabit NICs.

Cons: The onboard Promise RAID is not ready for prime time, not even close. I had planned to stripe and mirror four drives in RAID 10. The Promise utility thinks it needs six drives for RAID 10, and the Tyan tech support thinks you need 10 drives. It took them three days to find the Promise documentation for me (which states 4 drives are needed for RAID 10).
Do not expect much in tech support from Tyan (Promise does not support it at all). Do not expect the on-board RAID to work. I plan on doing RAID in software under linux. I can spare a core for that.

Other Thoughts: This is the first computer I've had in decades without any sound outputs, just a beep speaker on the motherboard. That's kinda neat, to have a true work machine.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent ESXi motherboard

Pros: This motherboard is fully compatible with VMware ESXi 4.1. Having 4 onboard gigE NICs is great for building advanced networking configurations or NIC failover.

16 DIMM slots that will accept low cost 4GB ECC memory is a huge bonus. (Kingston Value RAM KVR1333D3E9S/4G) You can install 64GB RAM and 2 x Opteron 6128's for 16 cores for an extra $1800 + the mobo cost. Cheap!

I am 100% satisfied with this board for my VMware Lab. Will buy again.

Cons: Requires 2x 8pin EPS plugs. Choose your PSU wisely.

Other Thoughts: I built this system with 32GB RAM, Opteron 6128, 8x Crucial C300 SSDs backed by an LSI MegaRaid Controller. I am currently running 12 VMs of varying size (2GB & 4GB RAM, Win 2k8 & RHEL/CentOS) and it's barely breaking a sweat. Still have room for additional 6128 and another 32GB RAM. IO performance off the crucials is amazing.

5 out of 5 eggsReally nice motheboard

Pros: Takes dual G34 processors and loads of memory. The Megarac web server is a great to control the server via a web browser. The Remote console works perfectly with Linux as long as you use a 32-bit version of Java. Works great with CentOS and it does not break a sweat running virtual machines. I'm running 4 virtual and they are all working like they are on the system alone. AMD did a nice job with the G34 chips.

Cons: I had to return mine and was told that CPU slot 1 was damaged and Newegg returned it. I only bought 1 CPU and put it in CPU slot 0, so make sure you check the pins on both CPU slots before doing anything with the board. I was able to correct the pin in CPU slot 1 and the system is up and running. I don't think I will be able to put the second cpu in, but I still give this board 5 eggs because it's such a nice board with great features.

Other Thoughts: Make sure your PS has 2 EPS12v adapters. If not, you will need a Y-adapter or a converter cable for a 6 pin to 8 pin EPSv12. The board will not POST if both connectors are not attached. The description states that it takes DDR3 memory, what I didn't know at the time is that the memory NEEDS to be ECC memory. I went with Kingston memory and it's working great. Check the Kingston site for the memory that will work with this board. Going with Single Rank seems to be the best option for speed and expanability.
I will order this board again so I can have the 2 G34 procs working properly, I'll just do a closer inspection when I open the box.
