Back in the day, yes. My Rampage Formula from 2006 has this "feature" didn't like it then as PCIe was being phased in and I wanted to switch. It just surprises me this is still going on. It would really surprise me to find people still using this standard today. Even I moved to USB PCIe years ago. Save for a PCI NIC I just replaced with a USB one on my Intel board.

Edit: Just noticed I went OT again. Damn dementia setting in.

After reading a lot of reviews for my last build (Z77) I was deciding between the Extreme 9 and Sabertooth. Really the only reason I went with the Sabertooth was due to availability. ASRock was never really on my radar before then but they have made some great strides in the last few years.

Sigh, now I'm looking at the MSI MPower. I suck at this. But to be fair (to me) I haven't seen much that's out there yet. Asus has always been stellar for me. But I just want to change up from the red/black theme.

Haha, I wouldn't say you suck at it. Just doing your research.....at least that's always been my excuse. I can easily go a month or two reading review, forums etc before actually deciding on something.

I won't be able to put something together before next month. No rush. I've waited six years for a decent performance bump to get me to upgrade again, I can wait a few weeks more. ;)

Will be interesting to see if Rev.2 boards come out soon enough for me and to see how CPU's globally are OC'ing in a month. Sure am glad I don't have a current i7. I doubt I'd jump on the Haswell bandwagon if that were the case.

Anyone seen any info on when chips will start flowing that have this bug fixed?
Because I use attached storage I'm concerned I will experience this. Not a large issue for me, however for my family they just use the content not manage the PC.

Haven't heard anything yet. I expect it to trickle down in a month or two.

Quick google search in March gave this answer (though no specific dates at that time)

I did a search an saw lots on info from March but not this one. Most of what I read was comment applying to the first sample chips vs the current production release.

Thanks, I guess I will start to collect components for an end of summer rebuild.
