Guess Intel does not want to scare investors, consumers with a "disaster" chipset - hence 5%-15% in 3 years estimation stuff.

So, it might (or might not) happen faster.

Either way, 1 billion mistake. I think Intel is officially hiring!

Besides, Intel has stated they have yet to see any problems other than what they have replicated in their facilities.

that's what they are saying, but i'm not sure it's the whole story. i mean, a billion dollar recall for a 5% failure rate in 3 years??

yes, if they are paying the motherboard manufacturers for the affected boards, shipping and adminstration costs. Throw in some marketing dollars and it adds up quickly.

This is why I always buy a 2-year extended in-store warranty from MicroCenter when buying mobos (only $20). If anything goes wrong with it, they will simply allow you to exchange for the same mobo OR for a different mobo OR receive a full refund on a MC giftcard. You never have to worry about going through any RMA service with the manufacturers (if you upgrade mobos every 2 years) thumb.gif There is also a 3-year extended in-store warranty if you prefer to cover the entire manufacturer warranty period (excluding ASUS sabretooth series) biggrin.gif
