I´m looking for this motherboard ]http://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B0055057HG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=A1AT7YVPFBWXBL] who is recomended in the review ]http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/z68xp-ud3-dz68db,review-32228.html]. But it don't have the "B3" extension. is it afected for the sataII bug that exist in H67 non B3 motherboards or i can buy it quietly?

B3 applies to the P67 chipset only.

The Z68 is a mix who includes a P67 and a H67 so I think you must choice a Rev B3 only ...........

You are not correct. The SATA issue existed only in the P67 chipset and all affected motherboards should have been replaced several months ago.

To be entirely accurate the B3 chipset revision was for both H67 and P67 platforms. When the Z68 was released to market the B3 revisions were incorporated into alll of the later released motherboards.

+1 Chrsteracorgi is right.

When the H67 and P67 chipsets were release they had a B2 stepping for the Sata II controller. This SATA II controller over time would degraded and lead to data corruption that lead to us bring them all back in. When they were re-released most of the motherboard manufacturers would tag all of these boards with a B3 to show that they had the updated chip. So by the end up March all the old boards were off the market and the new replacement boards were out on the market. When the Z68 chipset was release in June there never was a question of it having a B2 stepping chip because all of these chipset were after the B3 release.
