Hi

Will Tyan K8SD Pro run Opteron 285 SE properly ?? this chip needs 120 W power suply (stardart Opteron 285 needs 95 W). I can't find limits for powering procesor socket, what's the maximum for this model ??

Yes. Under "archives support" it lists the socket 940 285 without any special bios requirements. Starmicro carries them for $90.

Yes, I saw this listing, but there is no SE (SUN EDITION) opteron listed, i saw there few chips labeld HE does it mean the same SE= HE ?? Anyway this listing says 270HE is supported, no 285 SE/HE...does it matter ??

I'm asking abut that, because X-bit Labs was speculating that not every MB will manage to run this version of opteron..
