[HC] GIGABYTE Releases Free Tool to Check SATA Connection on Intel Chipset - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Duckie like i said, I have no clue whether it works or not, as i do not have a Series-6 chipset, let alone one on a Gigabyte board.

@DV81: I don't know if you were joking, but everyone thinks you were pretty harsh. I like intel, and this SB fiasco is a real downer for everyone, as it brings real uncertainty into the proc war. The quicker Intel gets back on its feet, the better.

Just look at the mobo. The SATA ports are almost always color coded.
I think it does more than that...if you read the quote, it says if anything is plugged into the AFFECTED port, it will tell you that it is not operating correctly and it needs to be moved to another port, clearly indicating that the board has the defect.

EDIT: In theory. :/ MAN, i wish i could be a little more help for real. Good thing this deployment is almost over.

No, I wasn't joking. Maybe I just misinterpreted what you were trying to say, but when your first sentence is, "I don't like the sandybridge bandwagon..." kinda hard not to take it as, "I don't like the sandybridge bandwagon" (even though you don't own one?) for a motherboard chipset problem that isn't even related to the sandy bridge chip itself.

Maybe it's just me being defensive for all the other "high end" owners that feel it necessary to downgrade the new platform in anyway possible to re-affirm their purchases? There have been plenty of them on the 1155 threads with nothing better to do than try to prove their processor is better.

Maybe you're not one of those guys and I owe you an apology. If I misjudged what you were getting at, then I am truely sorry for seeming harsh.

Worst apology ever! LOL, totally joking. I'm not trying to stir ****, just trying to be funny haha. I'm glad they put out a tool like this for people that are blind.....

Yeah, this is why people buy cases with windows on them.

Thanks but no thanks, Gigabyte.

Though, if you've got a PC which is OEM and warranty will be void if you open it, then this seems like a decent idea.

Now wait guys...

Are you saying that you can tell if your board has a problem with the Intel Series-6 chipset by just LOOKING at it? Guys, i don't think its that easy since the issue is at the silicon level. Of course if you're plugged into the wrong sata and your drives start effing up, then you know....thats why this tool was made.

You cant just look at your board and say, "YEP, this is definitely one of those problematic boards; send it back!" No, pretty sure it doesn't work that way.
