Cool, thanks.

Well actually, will we be getting replacements, THEN returning the defectives? I really cannot do without a computer for more than a day. Too much homework.

So, am I understanding this correctly? EVERY motherboard with the Intel P67 chipset is affected by this bug? What is the best way to get into contact with Intel about this?

Not every motherboard. From the articles it's saying that only 5-15% of people will have an issue with this. Also, Intel has only just released the information thus far. Also, another article said that boards shipped out before Jan.9th have this potential problem.

every motherboard has the defect. 5 to 15 percent are projected to fail in 3 years, while an unknown number more may have slow sata performance over time. I'll make the exchange.. or just give me a free motherboard, let me keep mine, and I'll buy another 2600k and have 2 folding rigs. Up to intel.

agreed. If they cover shipping and send me the same board "fixed" for free I could care less.

lol...if only they offered a free motherboard. I'd be more than willing to plop down money for another CPU.

FUuuuuu. It's back to 30 fps in SC2 at min.
I also seem to have had to use an absurd amount of force to clamp the CPU in place. I'm pretty sure the motherboard thing scratched the top of the CPU.

I had the same issue getting the CPU locked in. I thought I heard pins bending and squeaking

For the recall, would you ship the board to Intel or the manufacturer (ASUS) for repair?

Asus. Asus will ship your board to China, China will replace broken transistor/silicon piece then put v2.0 over your old board and ship it back to you.
