    I've been looking for a cheaper option for building a Epyc 1401P rack server that can utilize U.2 NVMe drives. While the Dell R6415 is nice, once you select the NVMe option, the price balloons to almost $3,700. I found the Tyan B8026G62FE10HR bare-bone for $1,485 that checks all my boxes. My only problem is that i have no experience with Tyan. Can anyone share their experiences with Tyan products? Am i looking at issues going this route?

    I'd prefer Dell's option. Second Supermicro. Tyan and Gigabyte seem like third options. If this was Intel, Tyan is fine. I don't know of any real Tyan issues other than I've heard they don't have the same level of support behind their products as the larger guys.

    I kind of thought that might be the case. I know that the Dell's are solid, just didn't want to overpay.

    Tyan are a solid option but less community support than the others. Don’t know about AMD but they do make some IBM Power servers that are ok.

    I did notice that there seems to be a lack conversation on them. I've found a couple of professional reviews from different generations from STH and Phoronix but it is surprising that a manufacture that has been around for so long has such a low market penetration in the states.

    I put Gigabyte and Tyan products in same class, and I find them to be fantastic for what its worth.

    (I'm Canadian) My only experience with Tyan is briefly back in the S940 days. If you're just going to buy a single unit of something, I'd really recommend against Tyan if you intend to keep the machine for a long time. Support is also worse than what I've seen from Supermicro for small quantities. For a Tyan chassis, I haven't seen wide replacement part availability as well so that's a consideration.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that sticking with the Dell will be my best option. I’ve looked at SuperMicro but they don’t have a motherboard with the configuration i am looking for at the moment. The only thing I don’t care for with the Dells is one $160 option sticks you with other options that you didn’t ask for or want.
