TYAN Announces its First LGA1155 Client Motherboard for Core Processors

TYAN, an industry-leading server platform manufacturer, and a subsidiary of MiTAC International Corp., announced its TYAN S5515, the first Intel Core i3/i5/i7 supporting single socket server platform. As a Micro ATX form factor motherboard with Intel Q67 chipset on-board, the TYAN S5515 is designed to support single Intel 32nm Core i3/i5/i7 Processors. The innovative S5515 delivers higher performance in comparison to other desktops, workstations or general embedded solutions because of its sever-level feature set. The TYAN S5515 is also a compelling, cost-effective embedded solution because of its flexibility through multiple PCIe expansion slots on-board.

The S5515 motherboard features the following expansion slots (1) PCI-E 2.0 x16, (1) PCI-E x8, (1) PCI-E x1 and (1) PCI x1. The S5515 also includes (4) DDR3 DIMM sockets, (2) GbE LAN ports, (4) SATA II ports, (2) SATA III ports, (2) USB 3.0 ports and (4) RS232 Com ports on board that makes it the most ideal embedded platform that targets gaming, kiosk and signage and medical industry applications which require greater graphical functions. The S5515 is available worldwide through the TYAN distribution channel now.

I understand that server stuff does not need to look fancy, but what is with the old school green PCB for your average Joe?

It costs less for them to produce perhaps??

they probably paid the designer guy less, for not deciding the color of the PCB :p

and maybe the dye used is cheap in this case.

Possibly this, they just stick them into their server machine and print the things out as needed.

All of Tyan's motherboards are the standard green color. They make server components and servers are all about getting the job done, not about looks.

Seems limited for a server board. You would think it would have more sata ports or card expansion slots.

Why not use a high quality PC board? The price they charge for these do not seen to be worth it.

indeed, why does it has no VRM heatsink, and so few sata ports? and that for such a price... seems strange to me...

revision:
since its a server board maybe its ok if it make like that since they wont get OCed or put in custom case, but if they give the HSF it would be better

It has 2 x 10/100/1000 ports and a Nuvoton 5577D monitoring chip. Newegg only shows one other Micro ATX board with dual gigabit NIC and it doesn't have the monitoring chip, SATA 6 Gb/s, DisplayPort, remote management via serial port, nor USB 3.0.

I don't see any prices listed for this board yet but I suspect it is close to or under $100 USD. It is targetted to a very specific type of consumer.
Where do you get this price? I never see sub $100 server boards. Even open boxed super micro 775 socket ones have cost me $127.
