These processors are available at the rate of $20 to $35 depending upon the processor. This plan enables the user to receive one time replacement of their processor if it is fail during performance tuning due to overvoltaging or overclocking. This pilot plan will last for six months.
At present the plan covers Intel Core i5-2500K, Core i7-2600K, Core i7-2700K, Core i7-3930K, Core i7-3960X central processing units. Eventually Intel is likely to expand the list.
