What's your stance on Intel forcefully disabling non-K BCLK overclocking?

Besides Intel's Name & Shame post, I've also wanted to talk a bit about what they've been doing recently with their anti-consumer practices. What I'm talking about, indeed, is Intel issuing a microcode update (as well as forcing motherboard vendors) to essentially prevent the overclocking of non-K SKUd processors.

My opinion is in the stance of TekSyndicate's. As such, I'm going to embed their video below. Of course, since we're going against the Intel marketing machine, I'm also canceling myself out of any sponsorship from them, although it wasn't like Intel was going to sponsor anything from Techman's World anyways because they "don't have money".
