Yea...I hesitated buying into X58 late in the game...but it was tried and true tech, that wouldn't suffer from growing pains.

I held out and didnt buy x58 either... I ran my p45 board forever because the performance gain wasn't there for an average gamer like me and I didnt need the extra processing power... I still dont need what this 2600k can do.

And if I had ever caved at one of a thousand time i priced stuff out and bought an x58 board, I would be on your side of this... this is not a right or wrong game. I was going to wait for ivy bridge tbh.

This is an enthusiast site, chipset fanboys and controversy aside, we knew we were early adopters, and tbh the only people here that are going to have trouble sleeping over this are Intel. The majority of us p67 users will never see this problem affect them and will have replacements before sata controllers start failing left and right.

Things tend to improve over time... thats certainly nothing new.

People need to breathe.

So its just the chipset itself?
Not the CPU?

From what i was told Asus is already preparing for the RMA fallout from this, they expect to have new Mobo's shipping out within a month.

From what i gather both from the news article and Origin PC who is building mine, they'll have to start having people like yourself ship the Motherboards or entire PC back to Newegg or whoever built it and ship you a fixed MB which is a month away according to Asus, who knows about Gigabyte.
This is when I'm glad I was able to get my motherboard at a local shop. Though it appears that everyone is going to have to deal directly with the manufacturers and not the retailers. There isn't even anything on Gigabyte's website about this yet.

reading the article usually helps before you start posting about it. heck even the posts after the article considering were at 9 pages already... just sayin.

Bahh, I just hope my incoming P8P67 motherboard will hold up just fine up until the release of the new P6 series chipset.

Sucks that this is happening to the platform with the best price/performance ratio out there.

If SB was issue free at this moment, there would be next to no reason for anyone who didn't already have an AM3 board to consider anything from AMD, and many people are not willing to wait 3-5 months.

By April, SB will recover, and x68 may just be getting out the door, but AMD will be right there with Bulldozer, instead of nothing.
Barcelona repeat.

The article is now gone from Intel's webpage.

Here is another article:

As part of ongoing quality assurance, Intel Corporation has discovered a design issue in a recently released support chip, the Intel® 6 Series, code-named Cougar Point, and has implemented a silicon fix. In some cases, the Serial-ATA (SATA) ports within the chipsets may degrade over time, potentially impacting the performance or functionality of SATA-linked devices such as hard disk drives and DVD-drives. The chipset is utilized in PCs with Intel's latest Second Generation Intel Core processors, code-named Sandy Bridge. Intel has stopped shipment of the affected support chip from its factories. Intel has corrected the design issue, and has begun manufacturing a new version of the support chip which will resolve the issue. The Sandy Bridge microprocessor is unaffected and no other products are affected by this issue.

The company expects to begin delivering the updated version of the chipset to customers in late February and expects full volume recovery in April. Intel stands behind its products and is committed to product quality. For computer makers and other Intel customers that have bought potentially affected chipsets or systems, Intel will work with its OEM partners to accept the return of the affected chipsets, and plans to support modifications or replacements needed on motherboards or systems. The systems with the affected support chips have only been shipping since January 9th and the company believes that relatively few consumers are impacted by this issue. The only systems sold to an end customer potentially impacted are Second Generation Core i5 and Core i7 quad core based systems. Intel believes that consumers can continue to use their systems with confidence, while working with their computer manufacturer for a permanent solution. For further information consumers should contact Intel at www.intel.com on the support page or contact their OEM manufacturer.

For the first quarter of 2011, Intel expects this issue to reduce revenue by approximately $300 million as the company discontinues production of the current version of the chipset and begins manufacturing the new version. Full-year revenue is not expected to be materially affected by the issue. Total cost to repair and replace affected materials and systems in the market is estimated to be $700 million. Since this issue affected some of the chipset units shipped and produced in the fourth quarter of 2010, the company will take a charge against cost of goods sold, which is expected to reduce the fourth quarter gross margin percentage by approximately 4 percentage points from the previously reported 67.5 percent. The company will also take a charge in the first quarter of 2011which will lower the previously communicated gross margin percentage by 2 percentage points and the full-year gross margin percentage by one percentage point.
