Intel P67/H67 design flaw.


http://www.anandtech.com/show/4142/i...-begins-recall

Be wary of jumping on the Sandy Bridge bandwagon just yet. Intel has announce there is a design flaw in all p67/h67 chipsets, which are currently the only one to support new Sandy Bridge CPUs. This flaw causes degradation of SATA performance over time. Personally I'd wait until the new Z68 chipsets arrive anyway.

Intel P67/H67 design flaw.


i actually bought this board right b4 the recall announcement. I decided to continue with my build instead of returned. I'll exchange it when the fixes are in and i can exchange.

To clarify, the failure is in the four sata2 (3gbps) ports. The two available sata3 (6mbps) ports are fine, so that's what I'm using.

Yep, and thankfully there doesn't appear to be any damage to attached devices. Newegg is shipping the Sandy Bridge CPUs again so the new Mobos should follow shortly.
