    Is it illegal...

    If someone posts pictures of a P55 mobo and a new LGA1156 CPU before the release date. Is it illegal?

    mm.. If it is illegal if you signed a NDA. Then why do sites like Tom's Hardware, Anandtech sign NDA's?

    Because if they don't, intel won't send them the chips before the release date.

    If you bought 'em legally i can't see you having problems. That said, i'm an auto mechanic, not a lawyer.

    They are already on the shelfs in AU I believe, so posting them couldn't do any harm.

    could I have the first i5 750 on this forum?

    i've tried OCing a bit and got from 2.67 to 3.2 with lowered vcore. I haven't spent a long time doing it. After OCing my Super PI 1M scores went from 13 to 11.

    can't wait till tomorrow. Gonna get this beaut to 10ghz!! :P

    Certainly the first who is allowed to talk about it.

    If you bought them and didnt sign an NDA, then post em. There are pictures all over the place already.

    The P55 new southbridge "PCH" is really odd..

    I get 3 drives together in RAID 0. I get 50mbps max on HDtune

    On my ICH6R I get around 110mbps with 2 drives.
