I'd say it's treating him fine, considering he's got it at 4.8 in his sig. Mine's doing quite well also, thank you.
I guess you don't realize this, but the SATA problem is only with the 3g sata ports, which means you can use the 6g ports just fine.
Right now if you can find a Sandy Bridge MB and chip, it's one of the best values on the market. I got my MB for $100 off Amazon due to this defect which would never effect me in the first place!
$300 for a 5ghz beast that blows the doors off everything else on the market is what I call value.
