visit their web site.. Every where execpt one place they say >>NO<<. In
one little buried page says you can use dual 166s at your own risk, but,
never use 200s... Problem with th tyan's are that they have passive
regulators.. :( They should be comming with a new board fairly soon that
should have a switching regulator.. I'd hold out for that. (BTW- I have a
tyan IIID with 2 150's running at 166 (or 200 if I have the AC on).. Works
great.. (non mmx though :) ) )
