5 Star Review   By member danomoon - Sep 4, 2002   

Strengths: Damn Fast, reasonable price, Damn Fast

Weakness: Docs could be a bit better / more detailed

The board installed easily, with no problems or compatability issues. I built a hybrid of the ARS Godbox and Hotrod with the Tiger and MP2000 chips. I'm VERY pleased so far.

4 Star Review   By member percival - Aug 23, 2002   

Strengths: Stability, Speed, Tyan support is excellent

Weakness: USB doesn't work, Runs a little hot, Limited BIOS control, Board may not fit in all ATX cases, 3Com ethernet

This motherboard is the most stable I have used in a long time, and is very fast! My system has been running excellently for the past 6 months with this board, 2 X Athlon MP 1600+, and a wide variety of peripherals. Of course it has the bad USB controller, but I prefer not to use USB so it is the perfect choice. The S2466-4M Tiger MPX fixes the problem. The BIOS on this board has very limited options, but I am not a fan of BIOS tweaking except for disabling unused devices. Overclockers probably want to look at an ASUS board instead. But, if your aim is rock solid stability, get this one! This dual board runs pretty hot, make sure you have good cooling, and I recommend a beefy PSU. I bought the Enermax 435W wisper PSU and it is quiet, with ventilation over the CPUs. I had problems fitting this board in ATX cases. You may need one longer than usual to fit big 5.25 drives with it, as this board takes up every millimeter of the ATX spec. Unfortunately my board also came with a faulty ethernet port. But Tyan's awesome tech support had me fixed very quickly.

4 Star Review   By member idodekkers - Mar 31, 2002   

Strengths: stabilety,power,highgrade components needed

Weakness: USB,

have 5 of them running win2k advanced server in our lab and they run smooth, i see the part of must having high grade components as a must - no point in buying high end board with low end components.

4 Star Review   By member pearl298 - Mar 21, 2002   

Strengths: Good dual processor board, very stable

Weakness: MUST use ECC RAM, and VERY GOOD power supply (5V at 30A) in excess of Athlon requirements!

This is not an over-clocker's board, there are NO overclocking provisions. Dual processors + power supply + 1GB RAM and 4HDDs generate a LOT of heat, I have had to reconfigure the HDD placement and now have a total of 12 fans! It does run cool now with two Athlon 1700+ XP CPUs at RATED speed! Two of the HDDs are run as striped (RAID 0) under Win XP, the system really flys on 3D renders and the like. I run it 24/7 with SETI@Home - 12 workunits/day. The only failure has been and old HDD due to the overheating problem.

4 Star Review   By member hotneutron - Feb 23, 2002   

Strengths: Stable, inexpensive, build-in 3com ethernet. two 64-bit 66MHZ PCI slot.

Weakness: USB issue. Require quality parts. Only 3-PCI (32-bit 33MHZ) slot usable (one occupied by the USB card)

I heard 1-2 negative posts about this board on 2cpu discussion forum. Basically, you need QUALITY parts. Such as good PSU and good RAM. This probably the most important part that could cause crash. I have this board for 10 days, 7x24 running linux, never has a crash or anything. Don't expect you can overclock this beast, nothing tweak is there, it's not meant to anyway. You can select different FSB for different CPU, but it's not supported according to the manual.

1 Star Review   By member jbarnes - Feb 21, 2002   

Strengths: Inexpensive, strong dual Athlon support.

Weakness: Unstable.

This motherboard times its CPUs and dual FSBs such that a deviation in one CPU can throw off the other and destabilize the system. This is what happened to me: over time the voltages of each of my 1.5GHz Athlon-MPs diverged, eventually to the point that the system would lock up after 15 minutes of uptime. This problem was slow in making itself clear (the initial MTBF was higher), so I am now unable to return the board. Sux! Buy something more stable!
