Has anyone tried it yet?

Gigabyte has released a free tool that purportedly checks whether or not the SATA ports of your LGA1155 PC are affected by the Intel SATA controller fault.

Called Gigabyte 6 Series SATA Check, Gigabyte says the utility was released to ‘help our customers optimise SATA performance on their 6-series mobos’ and will tell you ‘if the SATA ports that you are using are in fact the affected Intel PCH SATA 2.0 ports.'

I think all it does is check if you have anything plugged into the SATA2 ports. Hopefully all recent builders know what they plugged in (just a month or so ago) or can easily do a visual check.
