It's all starting to sound like russian roulette
Except if you get an unloaded cylinder, you have someone with another pistol behind your head for another go. When are Intel going to admit they screwed up seriously big time and give us all a new processor. My motherboard has a ZIF so its no big deal if they post me a new one. I have already spent several £K over the years on Intel Inside motherboards so it will only be a small dint in their overall profits. So what if Brian Krzanich doesn't get his megabuck bonus for a couple of years.
