Delidding and The Intel Preformace Tuning Protection Plan

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So... I de-lidded. Had good results at first then I wouldn't post at my 24/7 speed (4.6) did 4.5 pre-delid . The key here was mostly temperature drop. Theorizing that a reduction in temp would not only make it more stable, but reduce the EM on the metals, thus prolonging the life of the chip. Anyway, long story short, I ended up frying the cpu. However I did get intel's PTPP. I have a RMA set up and I'm going to send the chip back to them delidded. You think they'll still honor it?

Conflict in Terms and conditions:
"Unless specifically set forth below, the terms and conditions for the Plan do not replace, change or otherwise impact the scope or term of Intel’s standard boxed processor limited warranty. "

(We all know delidding voids your warranty)... sooo they won't honor it?

But it also says...
" The Plan only applies to issues directly related to performance tuning, and only provides for a one-time replacement for eligible processors."

Personally, I think delidding is directly related to performance tuning.... so they will honor it?

Either way I got the cash set aside for a new cpu. Has anyone ever done this before? I feel I'm gonna be buying a new one, but I'd rather not waste the time and effort on sending it in if this is the case. And before people tell me to "glue it back on". I'd rather not. Sure it'd get replaced for sure then, but I own up to my mistakes soooooo...

Performance tuning plan doesn't cover any physical modifications. No use in even trying to tell intel that delidding should be covered, it wont be.

Yeah yeah. I figured that'd be the reply I'd get. After thinking about it, I guess I agree, but I don't need another proc sitting in my drawer. Especially a broken one. I'll send it to them for disposal wink.gif

There should be a delid protections plan XD

They did. They're called "Sandy Bridge" processors wink.gif

Or you could have simply fixed the IHS back (in a sharp order) with some super glue, taking your chances of having them fooled. It could have worked.
