Some Tyan boards are known as being very picky with RAM. If you want to 
avoid problems, you should really stick to the types listed in Tyan's 
memory compatibility list.
Perhaps the same can be said about any board today. It seems that the 
times of "generic" RAM are gone. See Tyan's web site.

I have a Tyan board that several times destroyed a DIMM or two upon 
reboot, and only upon reboot.
It did not happen during operation or when doing a hard reboot.
