Asus P67 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 101

post #1001 of 3000
I got an email from NE regarding the issue.
I wonder if they'll cross ship?

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you. Newegg has recently become aware of a design issue that is affecting recent models of Intel Sandy Bridge platform motherboards. We are working with Intel to identify the exact nature of this problem.

As always, Newegg remains 100% committed to our customers' total satisfaction. In keeping with our commitment to our customers, we are extending the return period for your motherboard by 90 days or until replacements become available from the manufacturer, whichever is greater. Intel expects to have a new revision of the P67 & H67 chipsets out around April, at which point first-run motherboards with this issue will need to be physically replaced in affected systems.

From a technical standpoint, the design issue can be bypassed fairly simply by not using the Serial ATA (SATA) ports that are affected. Your motherboard’s manual should identify your SATA ports by number, and at a minimum you should see ports 0-5 (6 ports in total) listed. Ports 0 and 1 are Sata Rev. III (6Gbps), and do not appear to be affected by this problem. Ports 2-5 are SATA Rev. II (3Gbps) and should not be used. For a thorough explanation of this hardware work-around, please refer to our video on YouTube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJcE2alQPvY

If you choose to use the hardware work-around option, there is no need to contact us at this time. We have your information on record and will email you as soon as the replacements become available. If you would like to discuss this with our tech community or read up on the latest updates, please visit our EggXpert forum:
http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/682006.aspx

If none of the above options are suitable to your needs and you wish to return the board at this time for a full refund, please email us at intelsandybridge@newegg.com and include your sales order number so we can help you out with your return.

If you have any concerns, please contact Newegg Customer Service for further information and assistance.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,


Your Newegg.com Customer Service Team

The response from ASUS to the Sandy Bridge design flaw.
It seems that ASUS will be replacing the motherboards if the customers wish to do so

Well a little sidestep from the design flaw topic.....

Anyone running the P8P67 LE?

I am looking into a SB upgrade once they get restocked with fixed boards, and just wondering if the LE is any good?

I know the Pro or Deluxe is a better board, but I was looking to save a few $ and really dont see any difference aside from the PCI-E speed for dual cards...

For motherboards, we’ve confirmed with Intel® that the Cougar Point design error does not affect SATA ports 0 and 1. Additionally, ASUS has been a pioneer in including extra SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 6Gb/s ports beyond Intel® specifications on a wide range of motherboards. These ports are not affected by this design error, offering customers an option for uninterrupted computing.
may i ask, which, on my board are those "infected" sata ports? In article they say sata port0 and sata port1 do not have this defect. So i know if i got cables installed right. TY

All of the 4 light blue ports are affected by the problem (those are the intel SATA 3GB ports)
The white ones are ports 0 and 1 and are the intel SATA 6GB ports and they are fine.

Which would be faster for Raid 0 WD Blue 3GB/s drives. I currently have them on the Dark Blue Marvell 6gb/s ports in Raid 0 and the Marvell controller is disabled in Bios yet they still work and in HD tach it peaks at 220mb/s. Will it be any faster if I switch to the Intel 6gb/s ports?

No, the bottlekneck is the actual drive performance, not the SATA chipset.

My Blues are plugged into the Intel SATA III ports, and you are getting slightly better performance if we can relate HD Tune to HD Tach. I get around 200mb/s (average estimate) through the first 40% of the 1TB Raid 0, and end up with an overall average through the entire drive of just over 160mb/s.
