Are you positive because I contacted 3 different reps and they said
Guest: o aslong as i have my invoice, and its less then 3 years sicne purchase, I can return my cpu for a replacement for any reason?
Intel: with the tuning plan then yes, you can return it for any reason.
Intel: Without the tuning plan then you can return it only if it's faulty and has no physical damage.
Guest: okay back, is there a special way i would need to package the chip? And if for some reason i send the chip in and they say its
Guest: not faulty enough does that mean my intel tuning plan ends?
Intel: There is no questions asked for claiming the plan, regardless of the fault description or if it has physical damage.
Intel: That is technically correct since it a one time use plan. So every time you are to play with the processor covered with the plan, you need to but the said Intel Tuning plan for it.
Guest: so, if my cpu chip degrades to the point it requires a much high votlage to stablize to run my overclock, is it covered?
Intel: Most customer will probably play with the unit still to finally stabilize their overclocked system but it will really be your choice if you wanted to use the plan with the processor that is covered with it.
Guest: so, to clarify, is that a yes? or no :S
Intel: If you customer wanted to use it for it, then we do not have any issue with it since if customer uses the plan we will replace it no matter what.
