I had nothing but trouble with two consecutive Tyan Tigers. The first 
one wouldn't even POST, and the second one rendomly wouldn't advance 
past the POST screen.
At the risk of being flame-bait, I think the Tyan Tigers are rubbish, 
and I'd stay away from them :D
I've heard this on several forums too.. One bloke who built a large 
number of them had a whole set of the boards fail on him within a minth 
of installation.

I'm running a P4 Gigabyte board, the 8IEXP. It's absolutely fantastic - 
not a single trouble with it, and a great overclocker.

Hole this helps :D
