First-tier motherboard makers to begin shipping boards with fixed Intel chipsets - First-tier motherboard makers to begin shipping boards with fixed Intel chipsets

"Asustek Computer, Gigabyte Technology, Micro-Star International (MSI), Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) and ASRock have all received small-volume shipments of fixed 6-series chipsets from Intel and will begin delivery of new P67, H67 and H61-based motherboards soon.

Shipments of 6-series-based motherboards will resume to 50% of their normal volumes by mid-March and reach full shipments by mid-April, according to industry sources.

Asustek, Gigabyte and MSI have all announced measures, including replacement of motherboards, to solve related problems caused by the defective chips.

ASRock said that it will extend the guarantee period from the current three, to four years for clients who carry out a replacement before June 30, 2011. New motherboards with fixed chipsets will be labeled with "B3" on their packaging and also on the motherboards."

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
