WHAT IS COVERED
This warranty covers a one-time replacement for any defects or malfunctions that may develop over time on processors purchased from MAIN PERFORMANCE PC.
REQUIREMENTS TO MAINTAIN COVERAGE
Any retail packaging included with your order must be returned for warranty service. This means you will need to store your retail box somewhere during the life of the warranty. Intel or AMD case stickers do not have to be returned if they were used. You MUST use a HIGH QUALITY TIM (Thermal Interface Compound) - We suggest products from http://www.thermal-grizzly.com - The use of low quality compounds may cause thermal overheating, if damage is a result of high temps, the warranty will be voided.
HOW LONG COVERAGE LASTS
This warranty runs for 3 Years from the date of purchase. This warranty only applies to the product and does carry over if re-sold.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED
Processors are thoroughly inspected before shipping to ensure perfect working condition. This warranty does not cover physical damage to the processor. Some examples of physical damage include missing components, product information being removed from the integrated heat spreader (“IHS”), and processor edges warped, bent, or cracked. Processors subjected to extreme cooling conditions (phase change, dry ice, LN2) are not covered by this warranty. Processors with their IHS removed (“delidded”) by the end consumer are not covered by this warranty. Any product recalls by an original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) are not covered by this warranty. Problems that occur from a design flaw acknowledged by an OEM do not qualify as a defect or malfunction under this warranty.
WHAT MAIN PERFORMANCE PC WILL DO
MAIN PERFORMANCE PC will test the processor upon receipt to verify any defects or malfunctions. Upon confirmation, a replacement processor will be issued. If available, a binned processor with similar specifications will be given. If a comparable sample is not available at the time, you will receive a processor of the same model instead. Customers are responsible for all shipping costs involved for warranty service.
