  1. Sounds like I'll just wait until April and get a replacement then.

    Sounds pretty good, especially the reset on the warranty.

    B3 step controllers start shipping after the weekend by the looks of things, so your late March/early April estimate seems about right. Hopefully Asus give priority to RMA's over restocking the channel (since Asus et al have already been paid out by Intel for all their B2 step boards-including yours).

    Seems expensive, and inconvenient. Is there a good reason that I'm overlooking as to why they wouldn't just ship you a PCIe SATA3 card? Or at least provide that option?

    Finally received a UPS label and instructions regarding arrangement for ASUS to pickup my old board. Was hoping they might have sent me a new one first so I wouldn't be stuck without a computer for any length of time...

    Sent motherboard off start of this week. Received a B3 revision one back from Asus UK today with all accessories (I only sent it back with the board, manuals and CD since any additional parts like the USB 3 backplate, sata cables etc. were all cable tied and routed through my case). Anyone want to buy a Asus P8P67 Pro B3 revision so I can upgrade to a Z68? :p
