this,Traditionally if you overclocked your Intel CPU you voided its warranty.
But with Intel increasingly selling CPUs and chipsets with unlocked clock speed and memory bus speed settings, the company has followed in the line of some high end graphics card makers (and a handful of gaming systems builders), who have guaranteed warranties on overclocked devices.
Intel will offer warranties on the Core i5 2500K for a one-time purchase of $20 USD, on the Core i7 2600K or 2700K for $25 USD, and on the Core i7 3930K or 3960X for $35 USD. In exchange if customers damage their CPU by overclocking it, they will get a one time replacement.
also, found a very nice read about ocing with gigabyte mobo's,
maybe helpfull for some
i know, its with a sandy bridge, but still , the even mention the internal cpu pll overvoltage...lol with higher oc's,
but with fixed vcore, guess it works the same with offset..Edited by VonDutch - 1/15/13 at 1:47pm
