Which Manufacturer to Choose for P67 Build?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
From what I've seen, most mobo manufacturers aren't offering cross-shipping. Personally, the time invested in tearing down the system / waiting for shipping / waiting for your return / putting system back together is reason enough for me to be furious if I were in that situation. Adding to that: being without a system for 10 days+ simply isn't acceptable for a person like me that works from home.

Apparently MSI is offering cross-shipment and I think that speaks wonders about the way they run their company. What do you think?

I wasn't an early adopter of the 1155 socket. So although the Cougar Point recall doesn't affect me directly I'd like to get some feedback from some of you regarding the quality of the product and ESPECIALLY THE SERVICE you've received from the various motherboard manufacturers recently?

I have a Gigabyte P67-UD7 and love it. Used to have an X58A-UD3R. Loved it too. Being that this Sandy Bridge/Intel recall is my first experience, I can't say which manufacturer is better over the other.

Being that I got mine from Newegg, they are handling it. So i'm hoping they do something like cross-shipping too. Because Ill be pissed if I have to wait 2 weeks to get a functioning computer again.

Taken from an anandtech page:
Quote:
ASUS will provide free 2-way “standard shipping” for both your B2 board and the B3 board. Your new board will have a warranty that starts from the time it is shipped. ASUS offers two options to expedite shipping. If you provide your credit card number ASUS will temporarily put a charge on your account for the MSRP of a replacement board and ship it to you in advance. Once ASUS receives your B2 board it will remove the charge from your account. The other option also involves you providing ASUS with your credit card number, however ASUS will not charge your card right away. As soon as you have shipped your motherboard (and the carrier lists the package as In Transit), ASUS will ship out a replacement board. As long as there are no issues with the board you send in (e.g. serial numbers match and it's eligible for RMA) then your credit card won't be charged. ASUS mentions that the scope for exchanges is limited but it doesn’t mention a specific date.*

MSI also provides free shipping and has committed to 3-day shipping both ways. You’ll get a pre-paid UPS label, send your board off, and get your new board via UPS 3-day as well. Update: MSI says it has added an advance RMA option as well. MSI places a time limit on the exchange program: you must register your motherboard or MSI system by April 30, 2011.
