[PC NEWS] oh no.. Sandy Bridge on fire :(

Yes, that true, Sandy Bridge is on fire ...

"The defect was found to be caused by shorting between the pins and the socket causing tiny electrical arcs. Motherboard reviewer from TechReaction.net discovered that his Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4 and GA-P67A-UD7 samples showed signs of socket burn. The publication is yet to receive a reply from the board manufacturer." -
