Not Illegal. Intel is the only one who cares.

Just really really frowned upon.

Anyone have any idea if one of those CPU's will work in a regular X79 motherboard?

Judging from our experience with LGA 1366, ASUS boards almost universally support dual-QPI chips - so you should be safe with a mid-range or better ASUS board. The rest have been hit-or-miss, and mostly miss. But since later revisions of Gigabyte and EVGA boards started to support dual-QPI chips for LGA 1366, they may start out supporting them for LGA 2011. That would be more of a gamble, though.

All the Asus boards are ugly though. Well besides the R4E but that is effing expensive. But that is a damn good price on the CPU.

Hey.

As far as I'm concerned it's worth every penny.

It has every feature I've basically ever wanted on a motherboard , and a few more.

Really wish these popped up for sale in January instead of now. I wonder if this is the price we'll able to find ES CPU's for sale on eBay later on.

X79 Sabertooth confirmed working with 8-core SB-E ES chips on [H]. So yeah, ASUS is the way to go for now.
