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

Most AM2 Motherboards Not Phenom Ready
By

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.
