I'm an AMD user, and I call this entire thread a non-issue, anyone want to disagree?
Yeah, that's sarcasm, not irony.

You are the first Intel Shareholder that I know, that uses AMD. I guess I would disagree because all sandy bridge motherboards are probably not being recalled for non-issues.

Dad: "Oh there was some kind of recall will these h67 motherboards. Looks like the board just finally gave out on that sata connection. Oh darn. At least it didn't turn itself off from that killswitch problem we had a year ago. Go ahead and use the big dog 1366 computer. I'm going Ivy Bridge soon any way."


No, my son has been taught on an LGA 1366, he can plug the drive into the 6 GB/s controller for now, at least until I get done getting the board ready for a replacement.

Good point... I'll accept that one.

And me? Intel stock holder? Nope. If I had the money to buy Intel stocks, I'd be buying me a new motherboard, cpu block and a second GTX460...

Yes, the recall is a pain in the butt, it's pretty poor publicity, but seriously, this soon after release, how many people are actually affected? There is such a thing as the early adopter penalty, it just doesn't strike that often these days. Outside of the real enthusiast community, there are very few sandy bridge systems out there, Intel caught this one nice and early, be thankful they did, or this could be affecting huge numbers of people.

The people who have a real right to complain are HP/Dell etc who probably have thousands of sandy based systems flowing off the assembly lines. Taking them back and reworking them with replacement chips will cost a fortune.

The replacement chips will only start shipping to motherboard makers soon, they won't start to issue the fixed boards until they have a decent number in stock. This will take a while folks.

What ever happened to comparing Intel's Quad Core processors vs AMD's Quad Core processors - I miss the good ol' days.

Probably a lot of enthusiasts on this board are affected. Others that are affected won't know until the sata connection fails. Nice of Intel to let everyone know of the defect. Hopefully most people can get a 30 day refund while they still have the chance. I was really waiting for a itx form factor 1155 motherboard to release, and I'm sure glad I did wait.
