1155 doesn't affect our end?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I really would consider upgrading to a sandy bridge 2600k, and I saw a post on here saying the defective boards don't affect "our end."

Can someone explain what this means? And if I do decide to buy a defective board, which is the best bang for buck to get?

Just wait for the new revision boards to hit the stores. Shouldn't be long.

Well as far as I know they should be out in a month or so.

And yes, if you bought a defect nwo you could RMA it when the new ones come out.

Can someone explain what this means? ...
My guess: this implies that sata II ports are not needed by "our end" (which IMO is not true unless you don't need CD/DVD drives). Waiting is best, for you'll have to rip your system apart, the RMA can take a week or more and your windows install might 'dislike' the replacement.
