Gigabyte and CyberpowerPC Partnering to Offer Intel OC Warranty for Free

Intel recently unveiled a special warranty plan that allows users a one-time replacement for a processor they inadvertently cook while overclocking, but it cost a (relatively) small fee--between $20-35, depending on your particular CPU.

Gigabyte and CyberpowerPC have partnered to offer Intel’s plan, called the Intel Performance Tuning Protection Plan, in some CybewrpowerPC systems for free. The freebie will apply only to systems with certain Intel X or K chips (per the original plan conditions) and Gigabyte Z68 motherboards. Users can redeem their replacement CPU through CyberpowerPC’s customer service.



Intel’s protection plan is by no means expensive, but it’s still nice to save a few portraits of Lincoln wherever you can. Smooth move, Gigabyte and CyberpowerPC.



GIGABYTE Partners with CyberpowerPC to Offer Intel’s Overclocking Warranty Plan
--Push your CPU to the Limit with the Performance Tuning Protection Plan--

City of Industry, California, February 09, 2011--GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and computing hardware solutions announced today that it has partnered with leading gaming PC system builder CyberpowerPC, to offer Intel’s Performance Tuning Protection Plan free. Purchased systems configured with the “K” or “X” Intel boxed CPU along with GIGABYTE Z68 series motherboards will qualify.

The Performance Tuning Protection Plan being offered by Intel is a chance for users to experiment with the overclocking features of your processor without the worries of what will happen if you push the processor too far. 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.

That is fairly inexpensive and would certainly tempt me into overclocking. I will give overclocking a try one day and just go for a modest boost.

Depending on your cpu a modest overclock might be all you need, i have my 2500k overclocked to 3.7Ghz from stock 3.3 Ghz and thats enough to rate a 7.8 in windows experience. Make sure you have a good cpu cooler before you overclock though, stock ones just wont cut it.

This seems to be a good promotion for both companies and a benefit to the consumer; if I was looking for a new PC and I was overclocking, I might give this a shot.
