Most AM2 Motherboards Not Phenom Ready

Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 (Nvidia nForce 570 SLI)

Board Revision: 0.2
Installed BIOS: F7 (01-18-2007)
Upgraded with: F12 (11-21-2007)

Finally, we found a motherboard for which we found an updated BIOS that officially includes Phenom support as well as some bug fixes. Like the Epox MF570 SLI, the Gigabyte M57SLI-S4 is based on Nvidia's mainstream SLI chipset nForce 570 SLI with support for dual x8 PCI Express graphics. With the exception of having only a three phase voltage regulator, this product is very well equipped and offers a plethora of BIOS features for enthusiasts. However, we weren't able to run it with the Phenom processor - despite official BIOS support. The pre-production motherboard revision 0.2 could be the issue, though.

    too many vendors boycott the upgradebility they just dont want to release a simple bios update because they want to force costumers to buy a new motherboard. it would anger me i would have bought a am2 motherboard and the vendor was such a bastard to boycott the upgrade.today those bios updates are rare too find. so far i have only few vendors who upgrade there bios. apperently ASUS support it the best so that is why i will choose ASUS above all those cheap bastards from now on
