  1. Looks slick! I might have to look into getting an engineering sample for my next build. (whenever that is lol)

  2. Will the Engineering samples work for things like a VM Server or a NAS with ECC Memory?

    Will it work with hardware passthrough?

  3. I'm still a bit iffy on ES Xeons. They don't seem 100% legal.

    Intel® Engineering Sample Processors ("Intel® ES Processors"), also known as Intel® Qualification Sample Processors, are pre-production processors loaned to Intel's Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Original Device Manufacturers (ODMs), and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to be used in the product design cycle prior to product launch.

    These processors often include additional features that production processors do not include for customer pre-production evaluation and test purposes. The following conditions apply to Intel ES Processors:

    Intel ES Processors are the sole property of Intel.
    Intel ES Processors are Intel Confidential.
    Intel ES Processors are provided by Intel under nondisclosure and/or special loan agreement terms with restrictions on the recipient's handling and use.
    Intel ES Processors are not for sale or re-sale.
    Intel ES Processors may not have passed commercial regulatory requirements.
    ES Processors are not covered under Intel warranty and are generally not supported by Intel

  4. Legal is not the term you are looking for. Intel is not the police or the government. However, it is very shady for companies to sell these... however again, they are cheap and fast. I'm sure Intel hates that they are on Ebay. They will need to crack down on them.

  5. call it Pumpkin spice Playhouse.
