Supermicro are also very good, but IMO they come second after Tyan.

Coming late, ok way late :-), into the thread, but someone was mentioning
that Supermicro motherboards had issues with Opterons.

Anyone has experienced/read/heard about this?

Well, I've heard that Google builds their newest servers
almost exclusively on Opteron/Supermicro.

Google also back in the day took a bunch of bad donated RAM chips and put them to use using a special parity checking algorithm. The point is that Google doesn't always buy the absolute best hardware--they like many businesses put cost first.
