Default Intel launches overclocker insurance

Intel must have noticed some of its geekier customers are burning their systems out through overclocking, because it has launched an insurance scheme for its enthusiast market.

Now, overclockers can buy a $20 plan which will extend beyond the standard three year warranty. In Intel's own 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."

It appears to be a one-time replacement. In Intel's FAQ, here, it claims that despite the offer, the company is not supporting or encouraging overclocking. Customers can't buy multiple plans for one processor, either.

Processors covered in the plan are all unlocked processors with an X or K suffix, and any processor in the LGA2011 socket, beginning with 2nd Generation Core products.

Unfortunately for all the Intel overclocking enthusiasts in Syria, Burma, Sudan, Cuba, Iran and North Korea, the plan will not be available in those countries for legal reasons.
