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

    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...

    these are pretty expensive server boards, they surely are not for low end consumers;)

    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.
