  • Need a motherboard for an i5-2500K

    Apparently the LGA-1155 motherboards have been recalled due to some SATA issue?
    Any news on when they're coming back? The best I've heard was March/April, but I'm in a bit of a bind and I'd like one now.

    If I can't get one with the fixed SATA controllers - can't I simply use SATA2 6.0GB/s HDDs?

    You could technically, but you would be limited to the two SATA 6GBPS ports on each motherboard. The big retailers like Newegg and Microcenter pulled the defective motherboards off their shelves so they would be hard to find anyways.

    I think you'll see widespread availability of the fixed B3 revision motherboards within a week or two.

      Yeah most of the motherboards are recalled. If you find any the updated version of the chipset should be the B3 stepping. Newegg has a few boards but it is going to be a week or two before they start showing up in a wide spread manner.
