Not good.

If i remember correctly on my v1.0 M57SLI-S4 there have been SPI pins within 
the PLCC connectors. These pins where not connected to any of the open 
presumably SPI pins.

But well i don't have a new board and i don't know SPI stuff. But you should 
try to measure all the pins i used for my stuff. Probably there is a 
connection... or the CS# of both SPI chips is connected to different pins of 
the SuperIO?
