The Return of Sandy Bridge! - Micro Center Memo

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Looks like most of the new boards are not going to be back on shelves until April. Nothing new there. However, you may see some earlier depending on how quickly people exchange. Here is the memo from Micro Center I just received.

Quote:
An important announcement regarding your Intel I7 2600K, I7 2600, I5 2500K, or I5 2400 Processor (“Sandy Bridgeâ€) motherboard purchase.
Beginning March 3rd, we will start to receive inventory from several manufacturers for the next 2-3 weeks. Inventory however will be limited until early April. We wanted you to be one of the first to know.
There are several options open to you. So that we may better serve you, please complete a very short questionnaire concerning which options you prefer. After completing the questionnaire you will be taken to a page with further details. See your local Micro Center store with questions.
Thank you for your business and your patience through this extremely rare situation.
Please click the link below to be taken to the questionnaire.
Your Micro Center Team

And the survey:

Quote:
Intel Questionnaire

Questions marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.
Listed below are options available to you regarding your purchase:

1.Keep the motherboard you originally purchased. Intel tests have indicated the majority of customers will not have an issue with their existing motherboard. The issue is one of limitations on your ability to expand beyond more than two SATA ports. The risk of data loss is minimal. Please note: If you change your mind, you may still return or swap the board at your convenience.

2.Return the motherboard to Micro Center for a replacement. You will receive full credit for the original purchase amount to be applied toward any brand in-stock board you prefer. If this motherboard is already in use, you may want to wait until April when inventory availability significantly improves.

3.Swap the motherboard directly with the motherboard Manufacturer. Each manufacturer has certain provisions for exchange and availability. Go to www.microcenter.com for a complete list of manufacturer rules, or directly to the manufacturer's website. The manufacturers are prioritizing inventory for end-users who contact them directly.

After you answer the questions below, you will taken to a link with further information on return/exchange details.

OH – Cincinnati / Sharonville PA – Philadelphia / St. Davids TX – Houston / West Loop TX – Dallas Metroplex / Richardson VA – Northern Virginia/Fairfax Don't Know or Don't Remember
