And you'll never be able to use anything better than rev.CG (130nm)
Opteron 250's in this board due to lack of BIOS support.  No PowerNow!
either.  Every Opteron board Tyan has produced they at least bothered to
support rev.E single core.  And Tyan supports rev.E dual-core on most of
their Opteron boards that was released before dual-core.
