Sorry, i thought that the story title made it clear. It says Sandy Bridge chipset design flaw. To me, that didn't say it was the CPU itself at all...not sure why it was assumed that I didn't know any better.

Great news for my incoming 2500K + P8P67 combo.

I just hope my motherboard will hold up just fine up until the release of the new revised P6 series chipset.

EDIT: What's the cheapest bootable PCI-E SSD out there right now? (j/k) lololol.

The Sandy Bridge microprocessor is unaffected and no other products are affected by this issue.

Now this is a very good reason why I don't buy new hardware straight of the ship.

I must say, it is tempting, but not worth the headache. I just built this new machine with an 875K and even it had some glitches, but let's just say that most of the cobwebs had already been removed.

One wonders, maybe EVGA knew something about it?.

So apparently, this "degradation" only occurs if your using SATA 3GB/s ports.

SATA 6GB/s is safe.

That is a philosophy I've grown to adopt when it comes to a lot of things. Let them work out the kinks. However, even that philosophy isn't fool-proof. Some hardware could be recalled if dirt in the clean room damages the hardware, for example.

I'm glad they caught it early and hopefully no other components are at risk.

After reading SEVERAL articles and forums threads, It's pretty clear that using 0/1 SATA 6GB/s ports is the way to go.
