So i just bought a ASRock p67 extreme4 mobo for my new SB build. Since it only has 4 Sata6Gb ports and no Sata3Gb is my statement correct that it does not have the Intel bug?

So far it's only confirmed across the SATA2 ports, and if the Intel's P67/H67 is used. Where other third-party like Marvell is being used this doesn't affect you or your data. At this point my advice is stay tuned. Personally, I won't want any affected P67/H67 MOBO. So right now I don't have a 100% trust factor on the Intel SATA2 or SATA3.

My thoughts, I'm not an engineer.

Booo! I waited 4 years to upgrade, ordered and built my rig last week, and this is what I get! But I did get this Asrock board as well. I noticed what you did, that there are 4 white ports for SATA3. I think I will swap to those ports and stay safe till a replacement comes.

Fester - my hats off to you. You are one of the few people I have seen who dont have the"chicken little - the sky is falling" syndrome over this issue.

All I can say is read people. The bug does not affect 100% of the chipsets. But reading these chicken little comments one would think the world is ending.

Tell me I didnt start that thread all over again.....
