Just because retailers removed the boards from selling doesn't mean It's a "omg this huge!" kind of deal. They're just doing that to ensure that the 5 - 10 percent possibility of failure never happens.

As for myself, if RMAing is as simple as heading to the local PC place I bought it from and saying "hey, this thing has that issue, can I get a new one?" and them saying "sure here you go" then I'll get a replacement. But honestly, I don't care. For one, it's 5 - 10%, secondly it's ONLY the Sata 2 ports and only for heavy data use. Have your dvd drive stuck in the sata 2 and you have 4 sata 3 ports for hard drives which should be more than enough for a lot of people. Considering you can get like 4 1.5TB drives. This has been said many times before, yes it is a messup on intels part. But it really is not a big deal. A lot of people are making it seem like "It's gonna blow!!!!!!!!!!!!" or "My entire computer is gonna fail!".

It's just sata 2, it's just a 5 - 10% possibility, and it's a slow degrade (if you see one at all), like 2 - 3 years.

I'm going to keep using only my SATA 6G ports until it becomes convenient to get a new mobo. I'm not really bothered by this at all.

If I had bought a Sandy bridge motherboard and it was defective I'd send it back and get a new one.

Exactly.

People who upgrade or like buying new tech (myself included)won't even see this when the next big release is launched. Building a Bulldozer and Ivy Bridge when it launches so it doesn't matter for me.

If I was using an LGA-1155 setup, I'd be pissed.

I have five drives now, and might have ten within a few months. My drives also get hammered; I can transfer dozens of terabytes on a busy day.

This is misleading.

The probability is ~5-15% after 2-3 years.

This most certainly does not imply a minimum time frame. There are 6 series chipsets in normal use that have already failed, and many more will fail far sooner than years.

Luckily they caught it early, so it's really not that big of a deal. As long as they follow through with the replacements its a minor issue. Truthfully I'd say the very few that have "failed" by now should be counted as the normal risk of buying any motherboard, since Intel considers the "5% for normal use and 15% for heavy use after three years" based on an average board. Meaning the the early failures aren't average.

Yeah, Intel's numbers..

I'm sure Marketing had no input on that "oh..it's just ..maaaaybeee 5 to 10% of this one little problem on just this one little thing.." style press release they put out.

Yeah, I'd be happy after reading that too.. I just bought this system.. it's no big deal. it's ok, I would have bought it anyway if I knew.. really.

yeah.

right.

I'm just going to wait to see what bulldozer and ivy bridge is all about. There is no point in keeping a defective product unless you are heavily invested into it.
