2 members of a German forums have been warned and advised by their seller (one of the biggest online shops in Germany) not to accept the delivery if possible as they got an info of a recall for that motherboard.
The recall for that board has been caused by a melted socket of the 1155.
The retailer then warned their customers and advised to reject any delivery made for the Asus MIVE.
This has been confirmed by a member of that forums who is an official Asus Tech Support member. Asus' statement he says will be officially announced most likely tomorrow.
The Thread - unfortunately in German :/
...but try to translate the support guys postings (Doktor(Asus)) with Google translations.
I'd advise temporarily not to buy that board.
Ray wrote:Same thing has been reported with Gigabyte as well.
- My contact at Gigabyte believes this is an isolated incident.
- I’m sending the board back to their HQ for further testing.

And how do you explain that?...
4 cores better than 6 (at approx. the same GHz)???

Building a machine, and then having to remove the motherboard and send it off for repalcement it is a huge pain. I wouldn't do it. This will hit Intel very badly
Kirill Kryukov wrote:Now with chipset recall those who haven't got Sandy Bridge system yet will probably have to wait till March (or April). I got my MB just a day before recall (Gigabyte pulled all their boards from retail channels), so I am lucky perhaps. I'll probably send it for replacement later. Unfortunately 2600K are sold out overhere, so I'm stuck waiting for a CPU.

Liquid Nitrogen Overclocking, Inc., is the only company selling fully-guaranteed Sandy Bridge systems that will not suffer from any SATA II problems, allowing access to all SATA II and SATA III ports.
