Tyan GX28 (B2882) will be a cantidate, but you be warned of:
- It's an 1U blade.
- Doesn't have too much disk I/O power (SATA conected to PCI 32/33).
In the other hand:
+ dual core CPU support official By tyan.
+ Free PCI-X 64/133 slot.
+ Broadcom BCM5704C dual channel to PCI-X bridge.
+ Intel 82551QM to PCI 32/33
I doesn't try run this with just a dual-core CPU. ALso this will limit
RAM to 4 slot/ 8 GB.
So think in a base 244 (x2) system with DDR333 (x4).
