i dont see why this is such a huge ordeal. i received my p67 motherboard the same day the recall was announced, but it hasnt changed my opinion and it wouldnt have changed my decisions had it been announced in time. the boards are still 100% usable (including the 3gb/s sata ports), and will continue to be for months. even before theres any degradation in performance, the updated parts will be out and itll be a simple matter of RMAing the board. this is a minor inconvenience for the end user and nothing more.
