Sandybridge Problem isn't that bad at all. - Page 4

post #31 of 42
To me this not a problem i cannot believe a recall was made over this. Microsoft got away with the 360 3 ring of death and there was never a recall on that. i went through 6 360, my brother 4, and my friend 5. This was a really big issue and it was only addressed with rma, but i like how intel is taking the approach because they could have just stayed silent and replace every rma they receive.

wise decision to make that issue public.

if data safety comes into play,intel could have faced severe consequenses;

for me as private user its no problem,even got 2 x 2 raid 0 at these ports,

now knowing that there might be an issue using those ports,i only avoid to store the most important files on these.

meanwhile i enjoy the new sytem and i`m glad to be one of those early adopters.

This is how I feel. Yes it's good that there are SATA III ports that people can use, which is great, but why would anyone settle for having essentially defective SATA II ports?! One big reason is resale value.

People are downplaying this because they've spend hundreds on shiny new gear and then find out it's defective and so are trying to not feel as bad. It's a foreseeable defense mechanism, heck, I'd probably do the same thing.

Seems like we are in the "Bargaining" stage of grief. We've accepted that this is real and while some are still angry, most are trying to bargain by saying "oh its not that bad, just use SATA III and even then you probably won't see your ports go bad since it's not 100% chance of failing and even if it does fail it's over time and gradual and you probably won't lose data integrity just slower speeds."

I don't think the resale value should even be considered. It's a brand new board and EVERY feature displayed on the box and in the manual should be free from manufacturing defects and this is stated in the warranty information in your manual.

Not at this point. But I was thinking of in the future, since most of us have pretty quick rig turnover and alot of us change gear 2-3 years down the road. And unless most SB owners plan to keep their setup for a long long time I'd think they would consider the resale value when they do plan to upgrade.

Intel has learned their lesson it appears. Back in the early to mid 90s they released a CPU with an FPU bug and denied it for a month or so. The backlash was pretty bad, and this time they are announcing the bug. Pretty admirable really.

Pretty easy for me to be objective about this, since I realized early on the motherboard would not be the limiting factor in OCing this time around. So instead of needing a $350 motherboard, I picked up a $140 mobo and could really care less about resale value or if I need to add a $10 SATA2 card. ;-)

Very true!

This is what happens if you rush to get untested products. I always wait at least 2 months before getting a new MB since there are so many things to go wrong. I have 5 HDD, 1 SSD, 1 DVD. All the HDDs are very important to me so SB would have been fail for me.

Heck, if you want to talk about current resale value it might actually be HIGHER. Since it's basically impossible to build a new SB rig now, there's a guy on the OCN For Sale section selling his Sandy Bridge mobo/cpu/ram combo for $100 OVER what he paid.

I certainly am not downplaying it, it is more the convinience factor...I spent days on this PC setting it the way I want.

I'm just waiting for Asus's response, I will no doubt exchange my motherboard for a new fixed one, however not for a few months.

I'm not worried as I have the 4 sata 3 ports, I just cant wait 2-3 months for the new motherboards,so I'm living with my current PC.

I'm not going to go crazy and send my Motherboard and RMA it straight away, I need to know what Asus is planning to do and maybe offer the same solution Gigabyte has.
