You must not be up to date on what the issue is or the small percentage of defective boards.

I dunno how reliable that site is. Don't order from them. Let's say you have a doa board or some other problem with it, they'll say nope you signed a form saying you understood when you bought it. Deal with Asus, not us.

Newegg, MicroCenter, TigerDirect, NCIX.. all legit sites and all aren't selling a single 1155 board.

Did you indeed order one or talk to anyone there ? Hell I'd get one in a second. I did ckeck the site and they appear to be reputable. Does anyone know if it is indeed against Intel/Asus policy to sell these boards and do you think buying one would be trouble come RMA time for a new one.

Is there anyone else around still selling the LGA 1155 Board? From everything I know of the recall it is due to the 3gb SATA's degrade over time. Personally I dont care. I only use the 6's and I have an i5 SB just burning a hole in the box here. Anyone who could point me in the right direction would have my gratitude. Thanks.

I know that the boards have been deactivated on Newegg for a while now. Does anyone know when they are going to re-activate the LGA 1155 boards?
