AVADirect in Media: AVADirect Now Shipping Desktops With Fixed Sandy Bridge Chipset
"And just like that, another company is assuring customers that future machines are 100% cleared to be perfectly a-okay. Intel's Sandy Bridge snafu earlier this year really put vendors in a pinch; they didn't want to stop selling systems, but they also didn't want a ton of defective units going to unhappy customers. But now that the revised model is out of the pipeline, AVADirect is proudly announcing that their new desktops are utilizing the new Sandy Bridge hardware."

Being a custom PC builder, you come across many manufactures over thousands of products. Several factors come into play when recommending the best there is. With Kingston it specifically comes down to a couple key variables: performance, and reliability. Kingston has the lowest failure rate amongst any RAM manufacturer we have seen. Not only do we rarely ever have to tweak their factory clocks and latency timings, but they accommodate a fiercely overclocked system extremely well. They provide one of the cheapest RAM kits (cost, not quality) you can find when compared to other manufactures. We are honored to be featured on the Hyper-X portion of their website.

Company News: AVADirect Responds to New Sandy Bridge Chipset Flaw
"Intel disclosed yesterday that a flaw has been discovered on a support processor that correlates with SATA port functionality on Intel's Sandy Bridge based motherboards. This issue will not be affective immediately, rather the course of weeks, months, or years depending on different variables. The code-named Cougar Point support chip is mainly responsible for full functionality of all SATA devices, whether the device be a storage or optical drive. The Sandy Bridge processors have been unaffected by this motherboard chipset flaw. Besides Sandy Bridge, no other components relevant to the chipset are impacted by the flaw discovered by Intel. AVADirect is an Intel Premier Provider that will offer solutions by working closely with its customers to address the chipset flaw and will do what is necessary to make the process fast and efficient. More updates will be released as Intel discloses insight into their plans to implement a quick and viable solution."

Industry News: Intel Identifies Chipset Design Error, Implementing Solution
"As part of ongoing quality assurance, Intel Corporation has discovered a design issue in a recently released support chip, the Intel® 6 Series, code-named Cougar Point, and has implemented a silicon fix. In some cases, the Serial-ATA (SATA) ports within the chipsets may degrade over time, potentially impacting the performance or functionality of SATA-linked devices such as hard disk drives and DVD-drives. The chipset is utilized in PCs with Intel's latest Second Generation Intel Core processors, code-named Sandy Bridge. Intel has stopped shipment of the affected support chip from its factories. Intel has corrected the design issue, and has begun manufacturing a new version of the support chip which will resolve the issue. The Sandy Bridge microprocessor is unaffected and no other products are affected by this issue."
