Of course we'll have to wait and see, but if it's not built into the processor, and instead is something to do with the chipset, more than likely there'll be a way around it.

The other way to look at it would be to wonder if maybe the OC crippled procs would be limited to OEM builders like HP, Dell, Acer, etc....... It would make business sense (in my mind) to sell OC crippled chips in that way to allow lower prices on pre-built PCs so that those sales don't interfere with individual processor sales.... it's already getting to the point where a person shopping around for a mid-range processor might be able to get a better price for components by buying a pre-built and throwing out the motherboard/case.
