Looking to replace a Tyan S2518GN Motherboard (Dual PIII). Looking for what people would recommend. This is in a 2U server. I've looked a few motherboards but the biggest issue with some I have seen is the direction of the Memory slots. The way some are done, airflow is partially blocked as the slots run the length of the backplan.
Anyway, look forward to peoples recommendations especially from anyone that has worked with this tyan board.
Are there any special features of the original motherboard that you require? It appears that the Tyan S2518GN has Dual-channel Ultra160 SCSI support, and also two 64bit/66mhz pci slots. Do you require dual onboard NICs? Any additional information would be quite helpful.

Thanks for the reply, basically only the dual nics, we will be switching to SATA for the drives. Dual CPU would still be preferred, so something like 2xdualCore or the like. Room for 4GB ram and up, 2 sata channels. Other than that, nothing special, this will be a cPanel server in the end.
I have gathered a few NewEgg.com search results for dual core/dual processor server motherboards. Please keep in mind that some of these motherboards may not fit depending on your server's chassis size. Your original motherboard was approximately 12"x10", which will give us a nice estimate to start with.
