MSI plans B3 stickers for affected boards

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Wants you to be able to tell
MSI officially plans to put B3 stickers all over its P67 and H67 Sandy Bridge boards. The company wants to make sure that consumers will know when they buy a board with a fixed, B3 chipset.

Sales of P67 and H67 have been halted ever since Intel announced the bug, and the fixed boards are expected in April time. It looks like notebook manufacturers have the priority to roll out fixed notebooks and make some money for Intel but motherboard manufactures are next in line.

Intel will definitely cough a lot of money to cover the disaster Q1 for this recall.

Won't help the people who buy their stuff from e-tailers... Hope the new chipsets will be available soon.

I trust that sites like NewEgg will mention the stepping and use up-to-date pictures of the box.

I wonder though if 90% of the consumers know what that B3 Sticker stands for.

Maybe they can put. B3 = bugfree edition :D

At the same time, how many average consumers build computers?
