Can you still use regular warranty if you have Intel Performance Tuning Protection Plan

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello

I was going to get the Performance Tuning Protection Plan for future proofing the 6950X

I will probably not overclock properly until needed down the line, so was wondering, say if my CPU was to die on me before overclocking - does this now mean I must use the Performance Tuning Protection Plan - even if it was not an overclocking issue?

No, not at all. I have bought the PTPP for all my CPUs but have had two replaced with standard warranty over the years because they failed while running at stock voltage...

If you OC then use the PTPP

When it has burn marks on the bottom of the CPU under the gold connection points or components under the CPU. Other than that I don't really know what else which someone else probably knows here.
