Looking for a 2600k MoboFollow

I know all the issues with the recall on the Sandy Bridge mobos, but I was just wondering if anyone knew of any online retailer that may still be selling them. Preferably a mobo with enough SATA3 sockets where I won't even need the SATA2s anyway (4-6 would probably do it). I know a couple from ASROCK have been suggested in the past, but I can't seem to find any online still for sale. Newegg is selling the Sandy Bridge processors again, which is weird to me seeing that they're not selling the motherboards that match them. Any help would be appreciated!

Reason being is that I need to do an upgrade/replace to my processor asap and can't wait until mid March to April. The Sandy Bridges are top of the line right now and I'd be kicking myself to have to rush into another processor that can't really hold a candle to the Sandy Bridges.

The laptop boards were the ones with problems. The desktop boards are fine. This one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131482 or wait for the faster actual upgrade Socket 2011 boards in march.

Thanks for the reply, but that's not the correct board. The unlocked Sandy Bridge processors use LGA 1155 chipset, not the i5, i7 1156s.

Oh, thats right, I always get that mixed up because its one fewer pin. I'm not seeing any of them at all at the moment. Not even the sabertooths.
