I just spoke to Micro Center , they are extending the return policy on the motherboard and the processor by 1 more month than their regual 30 day policy to accommodate the issue. They are expecting the new motherboards end of march. If we wait till that time they will NOT accept returns/exchanges in store, we have to deal with Intel / Motherboard company itself.
The above is from dallas mc, can anybody else confirm from other stores.. what they are saying ?
Has anyone been able to get an even swap with the new boards. I purchased the bundle deal (i2500k+Asus P8P67 Pro = $339.00). The motherboard was $159.99. Went to my local MC and was told that I can return the old board for full refund and purchase the new board for $189.99. I was told they will not do an even swap (old for new). They indicate that Asus will do that. Can anyone confirm this.
If the manufacturer is doing an even swap, why doesn't MC also. Intel is suppose to be picking up the cost for this issue.
