    I've recently been following all the historical adulation and love for Xeon CPUs that could directly fit consumer boards (LGA 1366 or 2011) or the more recent ones that could easily overclock via BLCK (LGA 1151 on C232 chipsets), especially the E3 series of quad-code hyperthreading CPUs.

    This was talked about by a lot of tech sites in January but I'm wondering if anyone has heard anything since. Rumor has it that only deep pockets customers like the NSA will have access. Is this a good idea? It seems really odd to restrict the sale of CPUs to domestic consumers and only sell...
