As my 2600K reaches an unexpectedly old age where this sort of thing might start happening, I'm wondering if any 2500K/2600K/2700K owners have had their CPUs burn out over the years due to overclocking?

Mine's still going strong, or so it seems.

Mines still fine 4.5 @1.3v since it came out... although I would not doubt running >1.4v for years could have some effect.

I have seen cpus with the gold contact pads damaged by putting too much power through them.

Ha! Try 1.5volts for years. It's not too much power...

Would think the mobo would be where an issue would first develop.

My friend's 2700K (Sandy Bridge i7 as far as I can remember) went faulty on no overclock, stock cooler after 3 years. Too bad he doesn't have warranty to replace it.

Yeah, that's an i7 Sandy Bridge.

Did he have a good quality-made PSU?

Coolerpower 850w so generic. He's getting a EVGA supernova g2 750W anyway. Ironically we usually sell these generic PSUs for office builds.

That is likely the killer of the CPU.
