I ended up with NEW Dells XPS 8300 system with the flawed Intels Cougar Point chipset.
Intel says only 5% of the motherboards would be affected.
My question is, how do I know if I am in that 5% or not ?
Are there any tests or software that would identify the issue ?
What should I be looking for ?
I am in stock market business & any errors in calculations & plotting of charts data could cost me dearly.
So I am not using this system for business at this moment but I do need the system.
I tried hard but Dells technicians have no clue.
I have an option to return the system but then I will have to wait till end of April or May to get a new one & would rather keep it if there is a workaround.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
