Another sandybridge issue thread...

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
OK So I was thinking of sidegrading to sandybridge for power saving motives..

Is it only the sata II's affected? and so will I be able to run my HDD's on sata III's and all will be fine?

also will my dvd drive run fine on the sata II's?

Thanks

Suppose it so. As I've read If you use another sata controller like Marvel which is onboard SATA III then you are all good. This problem is only Intel chip related.

Intel® P67 Express Chipset (these will crap out)
2 xSATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (gray)
4 xSATA 3.0 Gb/s ports (blue)
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Support RAID 0,1,5,10

Marvell® PCIe 9128 SATA 6Gb/s controller with HyperDuo function* (this stays functional )

Theres been too much hype over this. If you buy now, buy from a reputable retailer. Per Intel's recall they should offer you a swap-out when they receive new stock. Meaning little downtime. You will be able to run HDDs on the SATA 6 ports provided they aren't Spinpoint F3s with these model numbers, as they have firmware issues with SATA 6. I am confident running on the SATA 3 ports until a replacement becomes available will lead to zero issues.

Thanks but isn't that just for SB850 chipsets?

Only "Cougar Point' chips are affected. Intel predicts, if using SATA_II ports, 5% of all H67 and P67 motherboards will fail to recognize SATA devices within first 3 years of regular as they said at "laptop" daily usage. And more will follow after that. But on the other hand, I'll just wait for Z67 chipsets to hit the market this year.

It's for SATA6 in general, I think. They were the first boards to have SATA 6 support. Anyway it is most definitely a no-go with my F3 (it just sits there and clunks rather than spin up), I haven't updated to that firmware though as its too much of a risk IMO.

So you're just fine running on the Sata II's yeh?

I may take the risk and see if it's fine with the sata II's.

I believe you are wrong.

I think all SATA 6Gbps ports are safe. Intel, Marvell or otherwise.

Correct if wrong, please.

Yeah for now. I will be jumping at a replacement board should one be available, if only for 2 months extension on the warranty (Scan did say that this would be their course of action).

e- Panic correct, however the Marvell ports are very slow and default to IDE rather than ACHI mode, so I wouldn't bother using them.

Thanks coffee.

Eaglake was wrong after all.
