I am unconcerned at this point.

I will say that at first I was mildly alarmed, but I am not new to situations such as these. Historically speaking once the dust settles a rational and acceptable solution presents itself.

Imho, this design flaw is a minor hiccup (so long as precautionary steps are followed). 2cents.gif

I swapped the 3 SATA devices to the SATA3 ports and thus far all seems to be in order. I have taken the time to read as much of the information that is available as education and understanding is surely a means to keep fear and ignorance at bay.

Additionally I did receive an e-mail from Newegg concerning the motherboard. The missive stated that my Return Policy had been extended to 90 days or when replacement motherboards were available (whichever was longer). I feel as though I am covered.

For now I will continue using this motherboard and when the replacements are issued I will re-assess the situation and consider a return/exchange.


Even amidst all this brouhaha this is one of the most satisfying builds that I have ever done.

I never planned on Sandy Bridge either. But, AMD is being presented a Silver Platter for Bulldozer's release. If Bulldozer is faster than Sandy Bridge and overclocks better and has more for the enthusiast it will be huge win for AMD, huge for me since I know my next build is going to be AMD, huge for everyone into computers. So I care a little more about the issue when I take a little bit wider and farther viewpoint on it.

  • You can still use SATA III ports, which may be plentiful depending on what motherboard and how many HDD's you have
  • It's only 5% to 15% defect rate, chances are you probably won't ever see your ports degrade at all
  • Even if it degrades it possibly only slow data transfer speed, not data integrity
  • Even if it degrades it's probably not instantaneous failure but over a year or two

Part of me feels that people are saying that to make themselves feel better after spending a ton on shiny new stuff only to find out it needs repair. Which is fine and I would too but it seems like to me that most people DO care down inside and are maybe still in semi-denial?

This is not meant to be flaming/bashing/etc. but it's a serious question and to spur rational and civil discussions on the matter at hand. Thank You.

Chances are Intel is understating the problem. Would you take a 300 million dollar charge on future earnings for a problem that 'might' not show up?

Agreed. Newegg has it covered and will notify in time on what to do.
As for now this is also the most stable PC ive ever built and I love it. Mine has been running 100% crunching at 4.8gigs with temps only at about 50c!

What are you talking about?

You have no idea about computer engineering or testing, do you?

I had a 2500k and a Biostar mobo in my newegg cart waiting on Friday, so I missed out. I can't really just wait around until retailers get the revised boards in stock, because I am using my notebook until I can build something else. Since I'm not going to pay $100+ more for older/slower tech (1366), I'm stuck ordering a semi-cheap AMD build to hold me over, and hoping I'll be able to swing a mid-year upgrade to SB or BD instead of my original plan. Right now I'm going with a PII 965 Black, and I'll end up either reselling it or upgrading my daughter's ancient 939 rig. If I still had the option to order a SB through newegg, I'd probably do it because I only need 2 SATA ports for now anyway. Even if I went that route, I'd still want to RMA the board ASAP, even though the issue wouldn't affect me immediately or directly, mostly because it would annoy me to know that my board has an issue.
