Important Notice about Intel(r) Series 6 Chipsets

All makes and models of motherboards designed for Intel’s 2nd Generation Core processors (code-named Sandy Bridge) now feature revised 6 Series chipsets, and are available immediately at Micro Center.

In early February, Intel identified a potentially serious issue with the 6 Series chipsets, possibly affecting system
performance. It is Intel’s belief that consumers could continue to use their systems with confidence has been borne out. However, some users may see degradation in the performance of SATA devices attached to the system, whether internal or external (such as hard drives and DVD drives).

Customers who have purchased the affected Intel components can return the items back to their local Micro Center store or to Micro Center Online for a full credit along with their original receipt. This offer expires May 15th, 2011.

For returns, contact your local Micro Center store or Micro Center Online's Customer Support .
