I do not know those but Tyan is a very good brand. The boards are very 

We use them even for web-servers.

There is only one problem, which is none if you know it, the BIOS has to 
be updated very often if the board is new. It even could happen that you 
will have to update it before you will be able to install any new 
operating system.
