Discontinued Product

Xavian-Anderson M., Newegg
11 April 2009
  • Summary: The time to have gotten one of these was when the price was only $329. Not anymore.
  • Pros: This board is what I used for a liquid-cooling project.
  • Cons: Sadly, upon checking Tyan's site, I found that this has been discontinued. Buyer beware!

Support a lot of RAM

Ning W., Newegg
1 March 2009
  • Summary: I have read all previous reviews before I decided to buy this item. It actually can be powered by either Tyan power supply or any power supply with 24pin and 2 P4. Most of the power supplies only have one p4, but you can get a molex to P4 adopt at very cheap price.
  • Pros: 16 slots and support 64 G memory. DDR2 4G module is relatively cheap now. 8G module is unreasonable expensive. I believe this probably this is the most cost efficient way to get a lot of RAM. I need a lot of RAM for my work.
  • Cons: Only one PCI-E slot. If you want to add 4 processors, you need 8000 series processors.

Hell at first, but great now!

Edward S., Newegg
8 January 2009
  • Summary: Stick with the drivers it comes with! Things got less stable for me when I updated, plus the latest RAID drivers don't support larger then 2tb raid arrays anyway. I used this board as a base for a VMWare server I was building.
  • Pros: Very stable, rock solid board. I updated to the latest bios to fix a couple documented glitches. Runs a windows based VMWare server like a champ. With 4 quad core processors average processor load rarely ever jumps above 10% on the 11 VM's currently living on that box. I plan on adding many more ...
  • Cons: I thought I was going nuts over the first two weeks of ownership. First batch of bsods pointed to raid problems, the next batch seemd to point to acpi problems, then bios, then totally random crashes.. By that point I figured I had bad memory or insuff power. It turns out it was just the ram slot...

Great Board, no Quad Core chips yet.

Thomas M., Newegg
5 March 2008
  • Summary: Does anyone know if this board is compatabile with the Athlon socket F's? Also, the power supply was not a problem at all, I'm not sure what the previous posters were complaining about.
  • Pros: Fast, 4 CPU's in one system, great for webserver, image processing, databases.
  • Cons: I can't find any 8000 series quad core opterons anywhere. I've had this board for about 3 months now and am stuck with the dual core opterons, which I expected to have temporarily until the quads came into stock again. Now the quad opterons have vanished from newegg completely and I fear they won...

Anonymous, Newegg
16 January 2008
  • Summary: To complete this sweetness Newegg has the rest of the goods to fill out his board. Just browse...
  • Pros: I see many suggesting power supplies in the 400 bucks region but think smarter... it requires two 8pins... and if you get say Enery Eff chips, thats 65w x 4 = 260watts and Newegg as usual has the goods... N82E16817101025... thats a 350watt supplementary power supply with tadda... two 8pin cpu con...
  • Cons: It is 3 months of my salary to complete this setup... :)

WOULD be great, but...

Anonymous, Newegg
30 August 2007
  • Summary: It's unfortunate that we couldn't get this going. We tried numerous power supply options, even calling Thermaltake, Antex, Enermax, etc. They all struck out. the killer was the two 8-pins and two 4-pin plugs. Different options had one but not both.
  • Pros: Killr mobo specs. We (tried) quad quadFX procs, 8GB RAM, 2K3 Server Ent, 5x150GB Raptors. It looked darn pretty all built up!
  • Cons: NO POWER SUPPLY AVAILABLE! Look around - you won't find one. Tyan makes the ONLY available power supply for this board and they sell it ONLY in a barebones (with 1U case, motherboard and power supply for an exorbitant amount of money). We looked high and low!
