Faulty i5 3570K, what should I do? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
You should be covered under Intel's warranty, unless you OC, in which case, you'd have to purchase that new Overclocker's insurance they started offering. Are you sure you applied your block/TIM correctly? I'd call pccasegear and inquire about their warranty policy, at least as a start. If it really is a CPU issue, and they won't cover it, look into what Intel will do for you.

z77 should work no problem. Its hard to believe its the processor but anything is possible. No physical damage present?

No physical damage at all. I really hope they replace it, other wise I have to pay $233 for a new one.
Are there really cheap 2500K? If they don't replace it then I think I might get a 2500K if it is significantly cheaper than 3570K.

I didn't even get to the bios to overclock, it shuts down very quickly.

Gigabyte UD3H MOBO, 3570K CPU, GTX850 GPU, Corsair Dominator Plat 2X4GB RAM and Enermax 900W PSU but the computer turns on and shuts down after 2 minutes, I have a really good custom water cooling system installed btw. I though the problem is the PSU so I took the whole computer to a repair shop, the technician replaced everything, but it still didn't work, but when he replaced the CPU with a 1155 that was in his rig, it worked perfectly fine.
I bought the CPU about 3 weeks ago from http://pccasegear.com/ and I told them what happened so I will send it to them hopefully tomorrow but do you guys think the warranty doesn't cover this? It doesn't say anything about warranty on the box so can someone explain CPU warranty for me please?

Which CPU did the technician put in your system? I had a similar problem with my G1.Sniper M3 motherboard and it was fixed with a simple bios update.

It is VERY easy. Go here: http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4153#bios

Download F17 bios, extract the files, put F17 bios into an empty USB drive, restart computer, go into bios, press F8 to enter Q-flash, update bios from USB drive, wait for it to finish, DONE thumb.gif

I'll just send the CPU for warranty tomorrow, if they replace it then that is good, if they don't then I will update bios. The computer is at the repair shop so I can't do anything at the moment.
