I don't know if they will enforce it if you try to return a dead CPU. Probably depends on the seller, but in theory yes it would void the warranty. Don't know if they can tell if the cpu died bc of oc tbh...Ok ill try it.
Another question: does overclocking void warranty?
Yes it has warranty I bought it recently and thanks for the answer Ill try to find a guide Thanks!I don't know if they will enforce it if you try to return a dead CPU. Probably depends on the seller, but in theory yes it would void the warranty. Don't know if they can tell if the cpu died bc of oc tbh...
But the 6600K is a fairly old CPU, is it really still under warranty? Anyway, if you're careful and follow some good guides, there is very little risk.There is a really good one here on the forums. Just watch the temps and be reasonable with the voltage
Thanks for the answerOverclocking will void the warranty of your retail CPU. Overclocking may destroy your CPU, your motherboard, or your system memory. ... Moderateoverclocking is mostly safe. These days, Intel and AMD don't frown onoverclocking as much as they did a few years ago.
A lot of people said so, but since i upgraded my CPU yesterday to an i5 4960k with a b85m-e it allowed me to overclock my CPU with no problems didnt even increase the voltage at all, i overclocked it to 4.2 GHZ and its running smooth with no issues and using a hyper 212 evo to cool it onload max temp is 50 ish idle from 32-37 max.A K suffix processor is designed to be overclocked.
By now, the intel warranty is long gone.
Whatever warranty you have will be from the seller and should be honored unless you have exceeded safe vcore voltages. Perhaps 1.4v.
But... this is all moot, a B250m motherboard does not permit cpu multiplier overclocking.
Well i never heard of those motherboards to be honest, first i updated the bios and the bios update was glitched from asus it self, i had to downgrade the bios to a little bit older version and it worked just fine.The b85m-e motherboard did allow multiplier overclocking for the G3258 processor.
I suspect that the microcode was not restricted to that particular processor.
Since it works, go ahead and use the capability.
At one time those motherboards had unauthorized bios updates that allowed cpu overclocking.
Intel did not like that and the capability was withdrawn.
Use at your own risk (which I think is minimal)
