    I dont get it, if Asus are stating

    "For motherboards, we have confirmed with Intel® that the Cougar Point design error does not affect SATA ports 0 and 1. Additionally, ASUS has been a pioneer in including extra SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 6Gb/s ports beyond Intel® specifications on a wide range of motherboards. These ports are not affected by this design error, offering customers an option for uninterrupted computing"ve

    Why would they need to offer a recall why not say, "our stuff is made differently by us so its not affected"?

    Because Intel told them to? When you are the biggest gorilla of them all, people do what you say. :D

    Who else thinks that rev 3 of the SB boards are going to be the most tested motherboards ever sold?

    Because some of the boards have additional controllers that are presumably unaffected but still have the Intel ones.

    Kudos to Asus for their response. Luckily I haven't been affected by this Sandy Bridge fiasco but it must be an absolute PR nightmare for Intel to cope with.
