Re: Bought a Sandy Bridge Monday, can I get some help?
If you can wait until the end of February, if you buy another motherboard then it will work and have the fix. The CPUs are fine, it is the chipset that has the issue, hence why the motherboard replacement will sort the problem.
Until then, your current board will not be a problem, it is only 2-3 years down the line before complete failure/severe slowdown and bugs will happen, so 1 month is nothing
