I was just about ready to hit the 'buy now' button' for my new DAW system build, then I read this on a UK PC components site:
Intel Sandybridge P67 and H67 Motherboards SATA issue. The issue has been raised that devices connected to SATA Ports 2-5 may degrade over time.Devices connected to SATA ports 0 and 1 are not affected and can be used as normal. There is NO issue with Sandybridge Processors, only P67 and H67 Motherboards are potentially affected.
I'm a bit out of touch so apologies if this is old news now, but it's been a while since my last system build and I'm only just getting up to speed.
Is this still an issue? Are people avoiding the P67 and H67 boards? If so, I may as well go back to my first plan and get the tried and tested X58 and Intel 950!
Thanks guys. That's clear now. Although it's worth clarifying that the online shop in question only has a few boards with this disclaimer on. So old stock basically. And no, they are still full price, so go figure...
