If you already have your board there's really nothing to freak out about. You may not even need to send it back. And even if you are an unlucky one with a bad SATA controller, your 6gb/s SATA ports are unaffected.

Unless you really need like every SATA port on your mobo, it shouldn't discourage you from putting your system together if you already have it.

I do need all SATA ports since I have lot of HDDs and devices that utilize all those ports. I think I'm just gonna return the combo I just got at MicroCenter and wait until vendors release more stable versions, I'm thinking of keeping the CPU but I have no use for it anyway so might as well returning it.

don't most boards have 2 marvel ports and 2 sata 3 ports? So until the RMA, assuming that your Intel SATA ports instantly die, you stll have 4 sata ports?

I know there are people out there with lots more hard drives so they will have a tougher time unless they happen to have a sata controller lying around.

Why is everyone so worried if you already got the board wait for manufacturer announcement.

Its not like it will make your computer caught fire and the test shows it will degrade in about 3 years, people still got nearly 3 years to go until the 5-15% chipset sata total function failure..... by that time we probably moving away from sata already and people will already change boards, rma dead boards due to other reason.

I've seen more evga classified boards dead and rmaed in a month and no one complain bout that?

This is what you get for trying to F customers up by changing the stupid sockets every 20 months or so. I hope it is going to cost Intel more than 1 billion dollars. On the other hand, I assume Chinese government sabotaged a little transistor here and there... That reminds me of a story when Europeans where trying to f Chinese up over the sale of high speed trains by saying the rubber parts between carriages prevent them from falling over.

For those that already have their systems up and running then they can either wait for response from vendors or continue to use it at their will but for people who just got the motherboard, CPU like me it doesn't make any sense to keep it. While bother keeping a faulty product while I can return to get a refund and wait for the revision to grab it later.

Hey guys, Do any of you know, does this affect the piece of hardware attached to the motherboard? Or just the Motherboard's port?

I have 3 ssd's so im a bit worried if the issue can cause damage to the attached device (such as my SSD's )

Theres really been nothing stated to what the issue is.

So the question: Can it affect my SSD's, so that if i put it into another Motherboard the SSD itself is messed up? or is it just the motherboard that will get damaged and the ports will stop to work?
