As there have been many posts already on Sandybridge based systems perhaps those who have not taken advice regarding staying clear until it has proved itself in the editing market will now take note.

Remember the rules for a PC used for editing: -

1 Do not buy a mark 1 version of anything
2 Let someone else debug the software
3 Only buy proven kit
4 Listen to those who know better
5 If it is not broke, then do not fix it
6 Obey the first five rules

1) Only SATA II is affected i.e. 2 ports of SATA III are OK

2) In good MOBO´s you get also additional SATA ports

(Slowing down the troughput SATA II performance can possible hurts highspeed HD but may be not the DVD, Bluray devices.)

Having a lot of slow(ing) ports doesn't really help !

Again, a good example of not rushing into untested territory.
Hopefully they exchange to compensate the users who bought the proc's and are using it already.

If you are going the 980X route take a look at my edit spec in the signature.

On my PC native AVCHD is eaten for breakfast as if it is SD DV video, throw anything on the timeline and it plays, add any effects and it plays. Rendering to a file is also very quick.

It looks like the users with the H67 chipset are safe.
Reports are they are not affected.

This is not correct!

All series 6 chipsets manufactured after Jan 9th are affected. P67, H67, HM67, HM65 etc.

Laptops and desktop boards are included in this mess.

Any dealer or distributor that continues to sell this bad stock is adding further burden to the resolution time to clear the channel. It is much more of a burden for Intel to have to deal with end users and already built systems than merely swapping stock with a distributor.

Yup, I am pretty disgusted with this whole situation, so I am just starring out my window at our 7th snowstorm and the nearly 4' of snow in my yard with easily 8' along the edges of my driveway.
