FYI, newegg emailed about store warranty for p67 extended to 90 days. I'm not returning mine. The issue affects SATAII ports. I use the 2 backward-compatible SATAIII ports(hdd + dvd). No problems for me so far. Mind you, I do full virus scans every day on the HDD.
If you plan to wait for new fixed P67 chipsets, it'll be spring before they're in stock.
Yes, AMD is good news. You can just swap out the SB CPU & P67 for AM3 Phenom II X4 + AMD 890 mobo. 890FX is the best of the series.
