The big news today is Intel’s reporting of a flaw in their new SandyBridge 6-series motherboards.  It seems that the SATA 3.0 Gp/s ports have rather short life time and some users will have drives drop off as too many bit errors result in the connection to the drive being cut.  That does not mean the board you bought is unusable, simply that the failure rate of the older SATA controller is unreasonably high, and those using only the SATA 6 Gb/s ports won’t even notice.  Intel has an  interesting history with hardware problems, now we need to see how the motherboard manufacturers respond.

Get all of the details from Ryan’s post.
