I see the following in the specs for the Tyan 8030. Does this not cover fan control? I'm no expert, so correct me if wrong.At this point I would go with the Supermicro H12-SSL. The fact that there's no fan control, I get asked "why do you need a SlimSAS to dual NVMe cable?" and that any ticket raised takes ages to reply - I think I might have been a bit too hasty with getting the Tyan. Oh well, live and learn

Double? damn that would suck i was going to get the tyan but after seeing @hmw's post i changed my mind and I'm waiting on the h12 myself i wouldn't pay $800 though

I collected the prices from a website: Enterprise and Industrial Grade Motherboards for Automation, AI, IoT, Edge and Cloud Computing . You can take it as reference.
What you want is the ability to set fan control separately for zones (CPU,SYS,PWR etc) and set the fans to spin up and ramp down depending on temps for these zones.I see the following in the specs for the Tyan 8030. Does this not cover fan control? I'm no expert, so correct me if wrong.

Let me know about this plz if they fix that I'm gonna order oneWhat you want is the ability to set fan control separately for zones (CPU,SYS,PWR etc) and set the fans to spin up and ramp down depending on temps for these zones.
The Tyan board does have temp monitoring zones but ALL the fans are controlled by that SINGLE duty cycle value - and it is either manual (so 33% duty cycle) OR it is full speed/100%
Even for servers that spend all their time in racks, having fans at 100% speed or not being able to vary duty cycle automatically is ... something from 1980s !
The Tyan person who responded to my support ticket asked me to reflash the BIOS - but the manual doesn't state any 'AUTO' setting ... so I've asked him to re-confirm before I needlessly reflash the BIOS
Bear in mind that this will only change the thresholds for when a fan low/high assert is triggered, it's not actually fan control. If it's possible to do fan control via ipmitool you'd need to know what raws the Tyan uses to control those values - asrock as supermicro use different raws even on the exact same BMC chipset so I wouldn't be surprised if Tyan was different still.ipmitool sensor list
