Yeah, I was going to say that a BIOS fix might not be enough to prevent a physical degradation of a component. Ouch to anyone that might have to go through this process.

Kind of makes me glad I didn't buy into this round. I was this close to ordering a 2600k and Asus Sabertooth, when I decided to instead purchase a Winchester Super X2 and hold off on any upgrades for awhile.

I'd like to know more details about under what circumstances one can expect to encounter the flaw or if it will just happen anyway.
That's a good question. This maybe nothing more than something similar to the whole Socket Burnout fiasco, which never really amounted to much actual real world fanfare.
