Question Retail?

What does Retail mean?

If a mobo is called Retail, can only a retail CPU work with it?

Retail is what stores sell. Retail means that it comes with the manuals and box and wires, bla bla bla. As opposed to OEM which is a little cheaper, but doesnt have the same stuff as the retail stuff. As long as the requirements for the mobo and cpu meet, OEM and Retail will both work.
