I have a GA-P67A-UD5 board purchased Jan.

I've never overclocked or adjusted any v core voltages.

All I've ever done is run 3DMark (Four times total) and some gaming (SC2).

I had to remove my i7-2600k CPU to have the motherboard replaced due to the faulty SATA issue and I found a scorched pad on the bottom of the CPU.

Some other pads near the bottom left also had some light scorching.

Hopefully now that I have the B3 version of this board this will no longer be an issue but I am worried.

Should I be? What can I do (Other then getting an ASUS board) if this new board still continues to burn the CPU pads? If it does burn the

This is not making me a Gigabyte fan :fou:

Wow, I guess they just let any old idiot comment on here.

While "CPU pads", may not be the exact terminology for it, it doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to understand what I'm referring to if you've seen an i7-2600k CPU before AND I guess you haven't.

On the bottom of the CPU, where the pins would normally be, there are now gold contact points.

But I'm sure you still have no idea what I'm talking about so just move on.

There have been defective LGA 1156 and LGA 1155 sockets out there.

Intel calls them land pads (i.e. Land Grid Array (LGA) gold pads).

Ahh, thanks for the correct term.

Will continued used of this defective socket distroy my CPU?
Is there a good chance that Gigabyte will replace the CPU if it gets killed because of it?

You should contact Gigabyte about the problem and ask them if you should continue to use the motherboard or RMA it.

Continued use isn't recommended. The burn marks are caused by arcing because the spring loaded pins in the socket that carry the power to the CPU are not making proper contact with the land pads on the CPU.
