No, but it's still hard to imagine they couldn't detect something like that before going to market. I mean come on! It's not a Mom & Pop store here, it's one of the biggest company on the entire planet!
They make billions $ selling chipsets and CPUs. That's what they do. How could they let a stupid mistake like that happened? IMHO, it's a sign of what our society has become. Everything is rushed out to make $$$ fast and easy. How many people at Intel, making alot of $$$, are working on the quality insurance department? Hundred? Thousands? And they let that thing happened? Unbeleivable.
Yes they were quick to react, they are paying for everything, and blah blah blah. But the mistake shoudn't have happened in the fist place. It's a really stupid mistake IMHO for a big company like Intel.
And yes it's annoying to me, since my computer is watercooled, it takes hours to take my mobo out and put a new one in.
