On our newest cluster, the vendor chose MSI boards. I had to RMA 4 of
them (out of 20) for bad hardware. Our previously Beowulf cluster we
used ASUS mobos. They worked ok up until the capacitors started
blowing. Our main cluster uses Tyan boards and that one has been the
most stable related to hardware problems.
