Intel Announces Performance Tuning Protection Plan: Overclockers Get Some Intel Love

 

SMGBT20008OC159

Intel has just announced an insurance plan for overclockers that goes above their usual 3 year warranty. Users can purchase a $20-$35 plan (depending on CPU) that offers a single, one time replacement of their CPU for damage due to overclocking. This is a great move by Intel to offer some protection to overclockers who are pushing their CPUs beyond spec.

Processors included in the program:

  • Intel Core i7 3960X: $35
  • Intel Core i7 3930K: $35
  • Intel Core i7 2700K: $25
  • Intel Core i7 2600K: $25
  • Intel Core i5 2500K: $20

You can purchase the plan for the next 6 months through one of their approved resellers or directly from Intel themselves at their website: http://www.intel.com/go/tuningplan
