Intel has unveiled the Performance Tuning Protection Plan, a new insurance plan for overclockers. Covered under the plan are unlocked processor (with a X or K suffix), and any LGA2011 processors. One year of protection against overclocking damage costs $20 to $35, depending on the CPU model.
The Performance Tuning Protection Plan being offered by Intel is a chance for you to experiment with the overclocking features of your processor without the worries of what will happen if you push the processor too far. The Plan allows you a single processor replacement, hassle-free, from our customer support. This is in addition to your standard 3 year warranty. In other words, if it fails under normal usage, we will replace it under the standard warranty; if it fails while running outside of Intel's specifications, we will replace it under the Performance Tuning Protection Plan.
