I have ordered just last weak a new Intel i5 and Asus P7P55D. And then I read article about burned processors and motherboards on 1156 Foxconn chipsets.
What should I do? I don't have in plan to overclock processor but still as people say it can happen once. And no warranty will be there.
Do you think it will work since I won't overclock a processor?
Which motherboard do you recommend if I choose Core 2 Duo LGA 775 processor?
It's not Foxconn chipset, it's Foxconn socket. And unless you plan on doing something extreme, you're probably fine. You can test-install the CPU to see if the socket leaves marks on the bottom like it's supposed to, but most people will be fine even if it doesn't.
I just contacted a distributor in my country and he said IF processor would be burned because of socket-board, ASUS would NOT cover the new processor, unless they decide differently (if they admit the whole series had a problem).
