Jan 9 probably means manufacture date not shipping date otherwise why even give this Jan 9 date if it means all?

See above - Embargo lift. Boards WOULDN'T (shouldn't) have been sold before then.
It's a design flaw, not a manufacturing flaw, meaning it has been there since the very inception of Cougar Point, so it is present in all of them from the get-go.

We wait to see what intel does and if/when there is a recall how they'll coordinate this.

Such an engineering blunder which'll cost intel millions of dollars, hope someone got fired after that.

We are doing our best to currently get in touch with board partners and retailers to help you guys get direction on where to go from here.

We'll be posting a followup article as soon as we get more details

It blind sided them as much as everyone else, so it's a bit of a scramble for everyone right now

LOOL! I've mistakenly put my SSD and one HDD on Marvell SATA3 ports. It looks like I didn't make a mistake after all.

That would be a PITA for the manufacturers to rework, I wonder if they'll just scrap the the whole board and provide new replacements.

I imagine they'll have to set up a processes that melts the solder, plucks the chipset and replaces it. Unless the revision has a different pinout, the board should still be good. Recycling the working boards seems like the best option.

maybe economically. but all the consumers (including myself) would have to wait for a very long time before they get their board back.
