Underhanded move. Hardware does not come with an ToS or EULA like software, Intel retains no similar rights to the hardware once I buy it, if I choose to OC any CPU I buy, it's my right and my risk.
However, they do have them on the code that makes that hardware work... Unless you write your own or get some that is written by someone else (open source or similar).
However, it is still a shame they must impose their will in this fashion.
In my opinion... they should just learn from the exprience and apply it to future licensing and leave what is as is.
If they allow this, maybe, they will sell more of those $900+ dollar processors.
