This review is from: TYAN S5510GM3NR Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1600
Pros: All 3 onboard NICs are supported by ESXi 5.0. iKVM is a must. Works great with Intel Xeon E3-1230 and supported RAM.
I didn't realize that ESXi could use the NIC that the iKVM was using, at the same time.
Have had zero issues with the board.
Cons: Would have liked to be able to remote power on, but I can live without this.
The manuals/documentation is somewhat lacking.
Other Thoughts: Not sure why people give this board such a bad wrap.
I did a lot of research, and picked CPUs and Memory that were on the TYAN site, listed as compatible.
The only ding, is the EPS12V requirement. I added a converter, and the board works fine with my desktop PC power supply.
