Sandy Bridge SATA II problem question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So me being cheap and buying an Intel DH67CL off of my friend, I knew it had the Sandy Bridge sata problem (I built the PC for him). Now I'm looking for a way to help this problem for as long as possible until I buy a new motherboard. Would plugging the hard drive + DVD drive into the 6Gbps ports help it not slowly degrade? Or are they off of the same controller?

Thanks.


PS: My 2500K and 650W PSU comes tomorrow, I am PUMPED. I have to upgrade 3 things before I start doing what I want. Hard drive (still using an IDE one, with an adapter), GFX card and motherboard. Once I do that, I can OC and really squeeze out performance.

SATA III ports are fine, so yes. RMA it though, I think you still can.

So technically, I could use this board for as long as I need to? Or will it just suffer at a much slower rate?

Technically, all ports could last forever. I would just use it like it is not defective and if you notice degradation, switch them to SATA III.

"Basically, this whole situation boils down to the SATA ports on the motherboard. In their tests 5% of motherboards under regular use resulted in the SATA port(s) failing and causing either the hard drive or DVD drive to function improperly. Under heavy usage it gets worse since 15% of SATA ports failed.

Additionally, these tests were set up to determine if the product could last for three years. This means the possibility of immediate damage is unlikely. Intel is also confident in companies like Dell and HP to handle the situation and keep things going in an orderly fashion. Again, this defect isn’t an immediate cause for concern as failure isn’t expected to occur until at least three years of use. But, if you own an Intel motherboard on socket 1155, you may want to get your product exchanged some time in the near future."

Wow, I thought it was something like a few months they blow up, not years! Good to know
