Most AM2 Motherboards Not Phenom Ready

Biostar TForce 590 SLI Deluxe (Nvidia nForce 590 SLI)

Board Revision: 1.0
Installed BIOS: 2006-05-12
Upgraded with: N5SAA521 (2007-07-02)

This is an upper mainstream nForce 590SLI motherboard with a powerful six phase voltage regulator and optional dual PCI Express x16 SLI graphics. As you can already tell from the BIOS version, a release dated July 2007 certainly does not support the Phenom processor. This version was released to support AMD's Athlon X2 BE-2000 processor series, rated at a 45 W TDP. We weren't able to run Phenom on this motherboard. Since we still consider the platform suitable for serious gaming, especially when working with a Phenom quad core, it would be great if Biostar continued to support it.

    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
