    needs to be replaced. I guess I have one of those Gigabyte(p67) boards that was recalled because of the Sata issue.

    I never experienced problems since I only used 1 of the faulting ports for my optical drive. Since I'm wanting to add another SSD I might as well replace the MB.

    Which motherboard would you recommend p67 or z68? I want to boost my gaming performance as well, I'll be adding another video card and better memory.

    Anyone have luck with these MB

    Maybe this because of the onboard x-fi
