1155 Confusion?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay, about 20 days ago I built a system based on the core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge. This claims to be an 1155 socket. (wouldn't that mean 1156 motherboard at least?)

I had ordered an ASRock H67 motherboard from newegg for this setup. Works great. The company wants a twin. I can't find a single H67 or LGA 1155 motherboard on NewEgg? Nor the one I wanted that was a twin to this? What the hell happened? There was a decent selection 20 days ago, now they don't even say "out of stock" they just completely pulled them? Can someone help me here...am I losing my mind, will an 1156 motherboard work with these 1155 CPUs just fine? Where can I get an ASRock H67M-GE LGA 1155 Motherboard, or something similar to it for the same price $100?

Thanks.

Intel issued a recall on all socket 1155 boards due to the sata controller degrading over time and potentially taking the data off your drives with it. They pulled the chips, too. I guess they figured that if they recalled the boards, they may as well pull the chips off the shelf.

ALL sandy bridge motherboards were recalled due to faulty 3gb SATA ports. You will have to wait until march-april to buy them again. Google sandy bridge motherboard recall, you will find all the info you need.

As the above poster said... the 67 Boards for the Sandy Bridge or 1155 sockets have all been recalled. There is a chance that your SATA II ports might go bad.

And no, an 1156 Board will not work for an 1155 Chip.
Unfortunately, there will not be any boards available until sometime in March, if i remember some of the press release estimates.

So at the moment, unless you find a private seller for a board, you are not going to be building another system

Oh my. I hope the system I got them set up with...doesn't go bad. Should I be worried...and would I get my warranty from NewEgg even though it's recalled? Well, what do you guys recommend I go with instead? Like the 2nd newest technology that is similar priced? 1156? I'm looking for a quad core CPU around $180 and motherboard to support it for $100, that supports 2 to 4 sticks of DDR3 Ram, and 1x PCI-E.
