    Good work by Intel for holding their hands up and admitting the mistake and putting it right.

    Now lets get on with building some top notch kit!

    I've decided to buy a PCIE card with 2 x SATA 6Gbs ports on it as I don't fancy being without my PC for the best part of 2 weeks while my motherboard gets RMA'd.

    they claim they are in stock now...

    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus...i-e-20-x16-ddr3-2200(oc)-sata-6gb-s-sata-raid

    i have one thats part of a big order i put in on friday last week, when they also said there was stock available, only to get a "Delayed Order Notification". which is a little disappointing, as scan have usually been pretty good with their in stock/not before.

    My P67A-UD4-B3 is arriving tomorrow, so my i7 2600k had to wait only a little bit more than a week :D.

    Well I got my replacement ASUS P8P67 PRO yesterday from Novatech in Bristol and what brilliant service it was - as always!

    I can now finally install that Dark Rock Advanced cooler I've been holding on to and perhaps delve into some overclocking...

    Brilliant Novatech - even though ASUS told me I wouldn't have my replacment until May!!!!!

    lol, no i don't. but have been buying from them them since 2000 and never had any problems with their service. nor any problems with Scan.

    price summery for OEM 2600k
    Novatech: £235
    OCuk: £239
    Scan: £239
    Aria: £245
    but before B3 chips were released, most websites i've seen are all at £235 inc VAT.

    Finally, I've been waiting to build a Sandy Bridge system for months! Just waiting on a few more motherboard reviews!

    Will bit-tech.net be reviewing the Asus Sabertooth P67?

    Currently I would get the Asus P8P67 Pro or Deluxe but a TUF board might be cool.

    Looks like i am waiting till MAY for mine to be replaced direct from Asus lol


    Dear customer,

    We have informed that you purchased the Asus motherboard with the serial number: *****

    Due to the recall Asus is able to offer you a replacement for the current motherboard.

    At the moment the given time to be able to replace the motherboard for you is in May 2011.

    Could you please advise if you are willing to wait until May?

    If you are, you will be contacted again when further information has been given regarding the replacement procedure.

    If you prefer the sales refund, we have to advise you to return the motherboard back to the reseller."
