Welcome to Intel ® technical support. Here is a genuine post: Hello Peter Thank you for your post. There is no recall on the Intel® CC820 desktop board. -- Regards John S. MCSE, A+ Intel Technical Support Hey! This guy got an A+ in his Microsoft exams! That means he must know everything there is to know about hardware (even if he obviously has a few lessons still to learn in modesty). and here is a suggested reply: Hello John S. Thankyou for your reply. Why the hell isn't there a recall on the Intel® CC820 desktop board? The vast majority of posts on this forum relate to poor – or non – performance of the CC820. It cannot work with certain types of memory; it requires the few memory modules it does support to be inserted in a strange and eldritch manner; it cannot provide adequate voltage to the AGP slot; serial port B fails for unspecified reasons; PS/2 mice lock up; there are problems with the BIOS error log; there is an Intel recognised modification to the power going to the DIMM sockets which Intel refuses to fix under warranty; poor performance of the MTH means that PC133 SDRAM performs worse than PC100 SDRAM in a BX440 muthaboard; etc etc etc Regards Andrew T. GCE Woodwork, grade 4 Register Bullshit Detection Department Why not visit Intel Support and tell John S what you think? ®
