Intel's Xeon Shows Its Stuff in 7 Motherboards

Tyan Thunder S2676 (i7525), Continued

The most powerful PCI-X slot is red (133 MHz).

The green slot is ready for expanding the onboard Adaptec 7902W by a RAID Zero module.

Up to 16 devices can be attached to the Adaptec chip. Adding a RAID Zero board will bring RAID 5 features and a 64 MB cache into play.

Broadcom's BCM5751 takes care of network connectivity via PCIe.

Unfortunately, Analog Devices' AD1981B does only support stereo sound.

Although Tyan fancies Quality, there are no 4-pin fan headers available. Also, two system fan headers are definitely not enough for a professional product.
