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. frown.gif

if they tested every single product before it left the shop it would raise the manufacturing cost alot, so much you probably wouldn't buy it due to the cost.

They probably test about 10% or less and only test more when they find a problem in that test batch.

This is the usual kind of quality control all manufacturers use on everything from food to electronics

I just wish Microsoft was held to the same standards as Intel. ;-)

Interesting, I'm not old enough to remember that. Thanks for sharing. Maybe they did learn something.

Intel certainly mentioned the problem before anyone even though it was a concern. That was commendable.

Do Intel users like to post in threads with "Not one bit" hehehe? j/k
