[CentOS] Motherboards

Does anyone have any experience with Super-Micro brand motherboards // 
dual Xeon cpu's?  Had to swap out my Tyan piece of junk and going back 
with the S-M board.  I believe it has similar north/southbridge chips on 
it -- at least they are the intel MCH ICH5R and PXH plus the 82546GB.  
One area that the Tyan board was seriously lacking in was in the 
hardware monitoring department.  The S-M board uses a winbond 83627HF 
chip.  Another area I'm wondering about is with the SATA controller.  
Supposedly the ICH5R supports Raid 0, 1, and JBOD's, but does CentOS 
handle the sata raid without difficulty?

Tnx..
