Well, looking on the bright side, at least Intel admitted that there is a problem. If this was Apple, Steve Jobs would...
- Deny it.
- Tell us, "You're holding it wrong."
- Issue rubber SATA bumpers for a limited time.
- Quietly fix the problem on the next model.
In that order

Yeah, I think I'll go with the use now/replace later option, especially after reading that the issue only affects the 3 Gb/s ports. If the 6 GB/s ports work fine, I'll just use those (as well as the Marvell ports) in the mean time.
So Superbiiz removed almost all of the s1155 boards, and the ones that remain are "out of stock." I sent an email to them asking what to do. My UD7 arrives tomorrow, and I'd prefer to use it now and replace it later. I'll have to see what they say.
