I would wait for a while before buying. Remember the disaster with Sandy Bridge at the beginning.

So SB was a nightmare at its release? Unlike AMD they seem to have fixed it.

Yeah there was a bug in one of the transistors circuits I seem to remember Gary and they has to recall the boards to fix it.

But to their credit it was fixed faster than they first anticipated - I don't think they will release anything now without some really thorough testing and if the do they are plain fools eh?

Still nice to see they are a bit closer eh?


By the way how come your sig looks like my backyard and house? lol!! all it needs is a junk yard dog

Those were boards.
Intel chips are usually rock solid.

The CPUs were fine.

There was a problem in the P67 motherboard chipset that might have eventually lead to the failure of one or more SATA ports. (Intel predicted 5% failures after 3 years of use.) Search on "cougar point chipset flaw".

Maybe I will finally upgrade. As it stands now, still enamored with my lowly Q9550 Core 2 Quad. Haven't been compelled to go i3/i5/i7 or SB yet.

Yeah, it was a SATAII chipset on the motherboards not the processor.

(But it was Intel's chipset.)

I never had the problem but elected to take the MB exchange anyway.
