Great but be Aware
This review is from: TYAN B8236G70W8HR-HE 2U Rackmount Server Barebone Dual Socket G34 AMD SR5690/SR5650 DDR3 1333/1066/800
Pros: Great Sever for the price once running its rock solid
Cons: OK, if you plan to run a 6200 series AMD processor please be aware that the Bios chip in the server needs to be flashed to a newer version. If you have v100 or v101 it WILL NOT POST. To flash the bios chip you have two choices put a lower grade socket G34 processor in it and flash it or send the chip to Tyan and they will send it back.
Other Thoughts: If your having problems give there Tech support a call they are helpful. Joey Ducan is the best and he knows his stuff!
