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.
