Pros: I chose this board for building a simulation workstation with 2 AMD 6272 Interlagos 16-core processors. I have been very pleased with the performance. Ultimately a great Tyan product.
Cons: The motherboard is NOT compatible with AMD 6200s right out of the box, Newegg is just plain, and apparently unapologetically wrong. When confronted with the issue Newegg was no use. However, Tyan has outstanding customer support that got me up and running very quickly.
Other Thoughts: Great purchase, would buy again.

Pros: 4 nics one dual purpose for IKVM which is very nice to have. plenty of sensors to monitor hardware.
Cons: First MOBO didn't post no beep codes no lights had to have replacement shipped out.
Other Thoughts: For the price it's not bad thought the on board raid isn't worth the time. A secondary raid card is needed if you want to run anything other than windows.
