I have the P67 Defect

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It's been exactly one year since I got my P67 board.

This morning all four Intel SATA2 ports failed. I can only assume it's because of the defect that Intel announced last year. All drives work fine on the marvel ports.

Unfortunately I could not RMA my board as it was being used for crucial work all year and I could not afford the downtime for it to be replaced.

Now that it has finally failed, can I still return my board to Asus under the recall? Or will I go through the normal RMA channels? I don't want them to turn around and deny me because the recall was 6 months ago.

Any advice would be great. Thanks.

In the future, just buy a spare el-cheapo board, or better yet, buy a fixed board while it's being RMA"d, and then sell the RMA'd one on ebay after you receive it. Many people do this.
