Apparently there was a design flaw in the Intel Cougar Point Chipset for Asus's P8P67 series motherboards (including the WS board).

If affected, you might check to find out how to get your MB serviced (from what I can tell, I think Asus is commiting to fixing the problem free of charge)

Again, from what I've read, the x79 boards are not affected.

This is about the B2 stepping chipsets of the first batch Sandy Bridge motherboards and is old news. All Sandy Bridge motherboards selling now comes with the B3 stepping chipsets and the problems have been fixed.
