Yes please, I got a M57SLI months ago, but it is series 2. I got the 
"wrong series 1 chips", and have not made any progress since.  I have 
tried to order the needed BIOS chip, but will no success.  I have a 
local computer shop who will do the soldering, (I am a programmer and 
would not have a clue on engineering).

Please contact me if you can get the chip required to modify a recent 
series 2 mother board.
