Thanks for the input FTW. You know what is funny, my Antec HCP-1200 which is known to be a beast has handled 1500+ watts fine (pulled 1875 from the wall) with a highly overclocked 990X / Quad 580 system of mine a few years ago. Surely the NEX1500 even on 110v circuit can handle my 3960X-Tri/Quad Titan system?
Ya, they were on auto and about 1.35v each. Sin's SB-E guide said those are good up to 1.4v on water. With that degrade the chip a lot quicker? I just set them to manual 1.3v each to test that out.
Ya, I am definitely considering the plan as $35 is nothing in the grand scheme of things. What I really can't get an answer to is how Intel would be able to tell the chip was overclocked/volted and turn it in for replacement via the regular warranty instead of the purchase plan. Is the purchase plan just a quicker/easier/less questions asked way to get the replacement?
All that energy use and stress on components.. I am not made out of money! biggrin.gif

I was thinking of your quad sli 580 rig & other rigs, that could easily max out a 1500w unit & if it was the same psu, it would have some wear & tear on it already.
I'm still trying to find a way to force more power into my titan & make the psu work harder, the NEX1500 will like them.

Pretty much if you kill the chip, you get a replacement. I don't think it applies if you hit it with a hammer, but it be damn close.
