From what I read, you can burn the pins only with "extreme overclocking"... No ****...

I want my motherboard and now I will be looking elsewhere for it.

Any suggestions on a second best...? The EVGA P67...?

At the rate ASUS goes, this won't be diagnosed, much less fixed, for months.

It's not pin/socket burn. The recall is for degradation of the SATA ports within the chipset over-time.

P67/H67 boards are being recalled, hence the deactivated and out of stock boards on most sites.

Wow. So what do I do...? I just ordered multiple thousands of dollars worth of crap from Newegg and FrozenCPU...

Honestly, the only thing I'm nervous about is that a product will arrive DOA and by the time I get a new processor, it will be past the 30 days of return.

What do I do...this is my first time buying online like this and of course just my luck GO ******* FIGURE WOW.

The recall will be for the board alone so all of the other hardware you purchased will be fine. With that said, I have no idea how these situations are handled. I assume you will get notified of the recall and have to ship the board back (Newegg's expense) and then buy another when the fix is issued.

Maybe someone else can chime in here....

Thanks a lot Frosty.

My issue is not in "the rest of my hardware" though. My issue is in the fact that I am building a computer from scratch. If something arrives DOA and I am sitting here waiting for a processor to arrive, I will never know it is DOA. In 35 days or whenever the thing gets to my place and I set it up, then I'll find out one of my GPUs or RAM sticks is dead and guess what, I can't return it!

My order hasn't shipped yet, I will be canceling it all until this is sorted out.

Almost every mainstream computer component website has pulled all their 1155 boards, I'm sure it wont be much longer until there back out, I have a whole build waiting on this damn board, seems like I'll never get it, tired of using this BS netbook!!

So wait a second...

The motherboard has been recalled for... A) it's own issues (or) B) Intel chipset flaw?

Basically, so the motherboard is fine or does it still have it's own issue on top of the Intel issue?
