For those who have not seen it yet, I have posted info from Gigabyte on the B2 chipset returns/refunds in the hardware news section.

No it's not stupid at all if it's going to take that long.

But for "that long" you still be able to use you system without any difference at all, so what are you saying?

Thats what im thinking to, it does not make any sense at all if you can swap the motherboard in some weeks/months to just buy an older platform? I was thinking to about getting 1366 because im without desktop atm... but I am just going to get a "damaged board" and build my rig then swap the mobo later on not such a big deal?

The thing about it is, the Board isn't automatically damaged just because Intel says there is a flaw in the chip that will take years to become an issue. if you have an SB system there is no reason to get rid of it. you can continue to use it for now and when replacements become available you are welcome to get one.

You're forgetting how much of a pain in the backside this is going to be for anyone with these soon to be screwed motherboards and an OEM copy of Windows, because not only will they have to scrap the motherboards, but also buy a new copy of Windows, since OEM copies are locked to the BIOS of the motherboard, not to mention the possibility of getting the data on their HDDs/SSDs partitions lost due to read/write errors.

I was just thinking about upgrading to these new chips, thank God I didn't because it's almost impossible to get decent support from online retailers and manufacturers alike here. And I sure dodged a bullet by not migrating to these new chips, because I would have been one of the many people that would've bought an OEM copy of Windows with the newly built rig. Also can't wait to hear when the kill switch implemented in their CPUs will make the news again (when someone finds out how to kill other people's shiny new rigs).

AMD should just finish Intel off by releasing the Bulldozer chips already. Everyone's waited long enough for them now (since at least 2007).

Also, that is not how OEM copies of Windows work. Get your facts right. If you get a replacement identical motherboard you will NOT have to re-activate Windows.

OEM versions of Windows 7 are identical to Full License Retail versions except for the following:

- OEM versions do not offer any free Microsoft direct support from Microsoft support personnel

- OEM licenses are tied to the very first computer you install and activate it on

- OEM versions allow all hardware upgrades except for an upgrade to a different model motherboard

- OEM versions cannot be used to directly upgrade from an older Windows operating system

I had to on my second P8P67 and previous second 790X. They were both the same board... But I did NOT have to call Microsoft, it was a simple online activation again.
