DRM that nobody cares about. Moot point.

These are valid concerns that everyone knows about when you purchase new hardware. I don't know what your goal is here except to make you feel better about yourself.

That is not true..

ALL mobo's with the sandybridge chipset are affected. Degradation of the sata 2 ports is approximately 5% in 3 years. And in worse case the sata 2 connector ports could fail.

What is up with these people coming in and talking down on people who purchased the products?

No, I didn't buy thew new CPU, I still have my old E6700. But really, why do you want to put down people like that?

tl;dr: Use the SATA6 ports till March = problem solved.

What about people with more than 2 HDDs D:

How the hell should i know if i want to RMA or not? Like someone said, it's not been 3-5 years yet.

An oxide layer was made too thin somewhere and is prone to early failure. All of these failures are ultimately due to electromigration.

3-5 years of "typical" use can easily be replicated in days or weeks by upping voltages and temperatures. This is what Intel did. They incubated some chips/boards, and ran tests on them. Some of them failed way earlier than they should have.

Every board sold so far has the flawed chipset revision.

Whether, and when, this flaw manifests is dependent on a huge number of variables.

They are all flawed. 100% of them. Every single last one.

Only 5-15% are expected to see issues. There is no contradiction here.

Not everyone with osteoporosis breaks a hip. Not every Ford Pinto that gets rear ended bursts into flames. You won't get an STD from every disease ridden whore you you have an encounter with.

The problems are still there.

Do you want a PCH with an SATA 2 controller that is more prone to failure? If not, get the RMA.

If you are willing to take a small risk instead of the hassle of RMA then don't bother.

It's a judgment call. You already have the best figures currently available, so you decide.

I'm going to leave it unless i start to notice it. I don't think i'll still have this board in a year anyway. The hassle and time involved in an overseas RMA just isn't worth it for me.

By that time, it will be too late - you will have lost data, and have replaced a non-defective hard drive in the process.

Balla is just mad that he was bragging about the greatness of Sandy Bridge for weeks, and now it has a major defect.

He is just trolling the marketplace now.
