    guess this falls into the 'FWIW' category.

    If you have an Intel quad core 'Core-i5' or 'Core-i7' processor built after Jan. 9, 2011, and run SATA2 hard drives, these links may interest you.

    Re: Fyi

    First link is broken, second takes me to a generic front page, third is an intel support page. Could you spell out the information for us or try some other links?

    I suspect this is related to the broken SATA II port issue that occurred when the first sandy bridge chipsets were released, although I recall nothing specific about quad core cpus. That issue was reported to be resolved around March of last year.

      All three are broken, actually. Looks like they were copied from a page that uses a shortener/obfuscation stylesheet. Annoys the hell outta me whenever I run across those...

        Here is one of the links.

        http://blogs.intel.com/technology/20...t_design_flaw/

        However this article and situation is sort of a mute point as this only pertains to a limited set of units. Specifically those made between January 9th, 2011 and February 14th 2011.

        This is direct from an update link posted within this blog which you can find below (Third link from OP). It explains the situation in detail for those with this dated batch.

          Sorry guys for the bad links. It was something I copied from a site and thought I might pass it on. I don't remember where I got it. Next time I will include their name.

            Just so you know, any socket 1155 motherboard with rev. B3 has had this issue fixed.

            This was from Feb 2011
