Gigabyte Technology, leading manufacturer of motherboards, has partnered with gaming PC system builder CyberpowerPC, to offer Intel’s extended warranty for overclocked processors for free. Purchased systems configured with the “K” Intel boxed microprocessors along with Gigabyte Z68 series motherboards will qualify.

Intel has a service plan for “K”, “X”, and LGA2011-socketed boxed processors called the performance tuning protection plan (PTPP) provide certain out-of-warranty service offerings in the event of damage caused by overclocking or overvoltaging by the user. Available at the cost between $20 and $35 (depending on microprocessor), the plan enables user to receive a one-time replacement processor if the user’s overvoltaging or overclocking causes the original processor to fail. The plan only applies to issues directly related to performance tuning.

Gigabyte and CyberpowerPC are teamed up to bundle Intel’s Plan free of charge, and allows you a single processor replacement through CyberpowerPC’s customer support if the CPU fails while running outside of Intel specifications.

 “For those who desire to obtain greater performance of the CPU by overclocking or tweaking the voltage, the Gigabyte Z68 series motherboards with their new redesigned VRM, promise to deliver first class system performance and power stability. With only the best quality components and unique design, incorporating Dual Power Switching and Power Phase Boost with Multi-gear Switching, your CPU can enjoy more unadulterated power from the motherboard than from previous motherboards” a statement by Gigabyte reads.

Marketing at it's best. Look up insurance scams and educate yourself.
