That is correct, my ASUS P8P67-Deluxe SATA 3G ports failed me. Just after about a month of ownership and within the last 3 days, my system degraded to the point where it would stall every 50 seconds for over a minute! Since i knew about the SATA port flaw, I was able to move my hard drives over to the SATA 6G ports, which apparently are not affected. Well lucky for me, everyone was right, my system is now back up and fully functional. You can count me in as being the first to get a replacement board. That and I have to get my hands on a couple 6G hard drives, may as well take advantage of the through put.
