Yes, as long as there is no physical damage they will... They do not have some magic sensor that tells them what freq and voltage you were running... Intel also releases complete data sheets with each design that you are free to read through....



There was a member here that was running his i5-760 @ 4.0, he had his IMC & DRAM at 1.05v & 1.65v which caused his cpu to degrade quickly and go bad...

He contacted Intel, sent the cpu in and received a new one...


To be perfectly hones with you, in all my time overclocking and following this site, that was the only time I read about an Intel cpu going bad within the first year....


Intel only offers a one year warranty.....

i thought it was 3 years? well i think my warranty is over or just about over so might as well smooth out the surface.

Seriously tho, if your worried about warranty dont lap it, keep voltage and temps within reason.
Intel lists "Absolute Maximum" in the data sheets, whatever cpu you have will have them listed.

It is my experience that if you stay under those voltages, and keep temps within reason then you wont have an issue.

I currently have 3 cpu's running, an E4300 I got in early 2007, clocked to 3.0 @ 1.45v 24/7 with no issues. I have a Q6600 clocked to 3.4 @ 1.47v 24/7, got that cpu early 2008.... Neither have had a single issue.....

My sig has been running a few months like this...
