Absolutely not saying that.  I don't have any experience with K8T800-based
boards at all.

But many people have been highly successful with the Tyan boards (I have
been running a K8S Pro-based server in production for more than two weeks
now, and the mysqld process is approaching 100 hours of CPU time.)  

So I am only suggesting them as an option ...
