They are STD parts, but there was some functionality pulled (like PS/ 
2, IIRC). That functions were pulled wouldn't cause me to suspect they  
changed up the PS connector... They just didn't populate some holes on  
the MB.

There is an 'unofficial' U20 FAQ that lists the Tyan part.

I have installed x64 Vista Business on mine, but had to hunt down an  
AC'97 driver for sound. And it seems x64 iTunes can't handle the new  
Nano (w/camera), it doesn't recognize it...

But still a fun box, ESP w/upgraded video...
