Thread: GA-M57SLI-S4 AM2 rev.2.0 compatible with Am3 cpu?




  1. #1

    Default GA-M57SLI-S4 AM2 rev.2.0 compatible with Am3 cpu?

    Hello @ all!

    I consider to upgrade my Pc with this cpu: AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor.


    My Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 AM2 rev.2.0. The online Specs say it supports Am3 cpu's . I couldn't find my particular model in the cpu support list. I wonder if it is still compatible and if it would make sense to upgrade.

    You are correct, the CPU you ask about is not in the list as even being tested yet. So you should contact them directly and see if they are currently testing or have already and possibly have a beta BIOS for you >>

    It is likely in testing now, and they just have not updated the page or made a final BIOS yet, I would ask before buying the CPU if you haven't already bought it

    thanks for the answer,

    i have contacted Gigabyte last week already and still waiting for them to response. I didn't buy it yet. I wonder if it is compatible, wether the board would support the cpu's full performance.

    If they dont answer you in a day or two send in another ticket. You could also always call in and ask them directly, let me know if you need a phone #, if so also let me know where you are at

    Thank you for your kind mail and inquiry. About the issue you mentioned, according to specification, GA-M57SLI-S4(rev. 2.0) does not support phenom II 940.

    Two card will run at X16 mode.

    If you still have any further question or suggestion about our products/service, please do not hesitate to contact with us. We will try our best to help you resolve the problem ASAP.

    me:

    hello thanks for your reply, but according with the offical website GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-M57SLI-S4 (rev. 2.0)

    "Supports next generation of 45nm AMD AM3 CPU
    This motherboard designs with Split Power Plane, 3+1 phase VRM to support AMD the latest 45nm AM3 Phenom™II series processors, delivering the great performance enchantment to system and ultimate scalability hardware expending."

    GA-M57SLI-S4 (rev. 2.0)

    Hi, if you look at the CPU Support List, for AM3 45nm processors, you can only find 95W TDP cpu's. That means that the highest performance cpu that you can use is the Phenom II 925 AM3 45nm 95W , #HDX925WFK4DGI ( apparently i cannot find it anymore on amd's page, you can see it here ). You can also ask them if your mobo supports the 95W version of the Phenom II X4 945 ( #HDX945WFK4DGI).

    That's all for now
