EDIT: nopes, i just read a latin article, Intel 6 Series: P67/H67..

The glitch it's in the Chipset, wow. that'll cost some bucks
The 6 series is indeed the motherboard chips....

the company said that testing has shown that ports in the Sandy Bridge chipset, which communicate with hard drives or DVD drives, may degrade over time. The Sandy Bridge chip itself is unaffected.
Market Watch - Intel

Definitely sounds like the motherboard's chipset.

That's if they can get the marvell chip to work right. It's still not top knotch. I still get timeouts.

I have to agree. I don't trust the Marvell chipset and haven't even thought about putting my drives on them.

Yup.

But I'm gonna be using Intel's 0/1 SATA 6GB/s ports, not Marvell's.

Good post.

I'd like to hear the toughts of some of our members here who already bought one of these systems and know what steps they plan on taking.

Thanks.

That'll work for people who only use 2 SATA devices. Many have more, and when the 3GB/s ports are said to even affect optical drives, it doesn't really help them. I for one wouldn't really want to be sticking my blu-ray drive on there.

While two SATA 3 ports, plus 2 with Marvell chipset, are not affected at this point, that isn't that many ports. Especially when half of them are wasted with DVD/BD drives...

The discovered error in the chip had to be serious for Intel to stop production. Resuming production and shipment of the fixed chip is probably around end of February, with bulk shipment commencing sometime in late March or early April. OEMs probably won't touch it until May.

Maybe this is the break what AMD needed...

The P67 chipset supports 2 6Gb/s SATA ports natively..

No problem with the Marvell here, though I don't have any SSD hooked up to it, only a SATA III system HDD.

I am sure some SATA III ports will suffice until the MB is RMAed. For HDD SATA II will be just as fast . So how many of you have more than two SSD drives? LOL.
