Sweet, I didn't think that rev C1 Gigabyte motherboards would support Quad-Core. Good to hear they now can with this BIOS.

Am I going to have to sell my new E6300 for a Kentsfield? By the way, in the supported CPU list is says S3 supports it, but doesn't mention anything about revisions....

Where does one look for the revision anyway? On the board directly?

Gigabytes site says look in top left corner of mobo or between the PCI slots for revison, its big enough to notice without looking in great detail.

Mine says Rev 1.0 between the bottom 2 PCI slots

Why don't use just use the F6 BIOS for GA-965P-S3?
That BIOS update adds the same "Support Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad-Core CPU (Kentsfield)" as the F7 does for the DS3.
