Intel finds flaw in 6-series chipsets, halts shipments - The Tech Report

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

Intel Identifies Sandy Bridge Chipset Design Error, All Shipments Stopped - techPowerUp! Forums

Intel is now recalling ALL SB chips, and full-scale production will not resume until April. There appears to be a problem with SATA Deterioration on the Chipsets.

AnandTech reports Motherboard designs will follow suit as well, so this is not as simple as a simple CPU replacement.

I already got screwed by this, don't follow my fate!

Interesting. Well my Intel board is working just fine for now.

Is this an issue that appears over time or what?

The degradation is supposed to slow your SATA over time.
