Intel Kills Extended Warranty Program for Overclocking

Some time ago, Intel has introduced the Performance Tuning Protection Plan (PTPP), which was used as a warranty for any damage that has occurred during overclocking.

When it comes to the pricing of such a service, typical plans were spanning from $19.99 to $29.99, depending on the processor you had. However, there will no longer be such a program, as Intel is discontinuing its PTPP extended overclocking warranty.

EVGA Announces Automatic Extension to New PSU Warranties For a Limited Time

EVGA today announced that they're starting a special, limited-time promotion on most of its PSU line-up. The offer, which lasts from tomorrow, June 5th, until December 31st 2018, will see the warranty period on specific families of EVGA PSUs automatically extended to up to 12 years of Limited Warranty. EVGA says this is a testament on their confidence in their own PSUs and their ability to withstand continuous usage throughout the years.

There are some tiers to this "automatic" warranty extension, however. Namely, different power supply families will see varying increases in their warranty periods - a way of acknowledging different longevity and quality of more expensive, more premium PSUs as well. As it stands, EVGA's -L Suffix graphics cards will see an upgrade to 4 Year Limited Warranty; -K Suffix PSUs to a 5 Year Limited Warranty; -V Suffix will be upgraded to a 7 Year Limited Warranty; -Y Suffix to 9 years; and finally, -X suffix will see the biggest increase to the maximum 12 years Limited Warranty. The increase amounts to 2 additional years of coverage period for each suffix of power supplies, but leaves out some PSUs in EVGA's catalog - namely -BR, -RX, and -RB suffixes. So pay good attention to what PSU you're buying if you're counting on getting an extended warranty for this critical component of your new - or revamped - build.

FTC Gives Manufacturers 30 Days to Remove Warranty Void Stickers

Remember that time where the FTC announced they were cracking down on illegal, predatory warranty conditions? You know, such as those "warranty void if removed" stickers that don't really have any legal base towards their implementation - and eventual refusal of an actual warranty claim? Well, the gong has now sounded, and it will reverberate some 30 times: the amount of days the FTC has given companies to cease and desist on putting those stickers in newly shipped products.

AMD Updates Warranty Policy on AMD Processors and Aftermarket CPU Coolers

A few days ago, a Reddit user came onto one of AMD's support pages and found some pretty disturbing information regarding the use of aftermarket cooling solutions. According to the FAQ, users are voiding the warranty on their AMD processors if they don't use the included stock heatsink. Given the seriousness of the situation, the matter was immediately brought to AMD for clarification. In their defense, they have stated that the information in the FAQ is outdated, and the wording doesn't accurately describe the terms of the warranty with modern processors. Therefore, AMD got right on the task and has since updated the FAQ. To not make a short story long, users are free to use aftermarket CPU coolers as long as these heatsinks are capable of properly cooling the processor within AMD's TDP specifications.

United States FTC Cracks Down on Predatory Warranty Conditions

The Federal Trade Commission staff has sent warning letters to six major companies that market and sell automobiles, cellular devices, and video gaming systems in the United States.

The letters warn that FTC staff has concerns about the companies' statements that consumers must use specified parts or service providers to keep their warranties intact. Unless warrantors provide the parts or services for free or receive a waiver from the FTC, such statements generally are prohibited by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a law that governs consumer product warranties. Similarly, such statements may be deceptive under the FTC Act.

The larger dimensions necessitate a PC case with a lot of interior space, which decreases a builder's freedom in selecting a chassis. Platimax D.F. 1200W is the smallest of its kind.

Inno3D Warn Miners Of Possible Warranty Void on Their Graphics Cards

The mining craze has generated overwhelming demand for graphics cards in the last few months, which led to increased prices from distributors, retailers, and the secondhand market. Miners usually don't look towards which brand they're buying their graphics cards from for their POW endeavors; they just buy whatever is available at the cheapest price, with some considerations thrown in for the cooling solution that is implemented.

One side effect of running multiple graphics cards in systems/racks that don't possess sufficient ventilation is damage to the graphics cards; some fans also give in to the strain of working 24/7 at maximum (or close to) speeds, and a look through mining forums or threads is enough to show that the amount of RMA'd cards that are used for mining is much greater than what usually results of "normal" usage of said products. Inno3D has apparently been affected by enough RMA requests and the economic effects of these that they have begun distributing their graphics cards with stickers warning users against mining on their GPUs, under threat that they reserve themselves "the right to void the warranty if there is any damage associated with this application." The sticker may be enough to deter some users; however, these are hardly legally binding, and should pose no problems for users in Europe or the United States looking to RMA their graphics card. Adding to this the fact that it would be very hard for any company to prove that damage on their graphics card products originated from a particular workload, it seems as a simple bluff from Inno3D - one that can be easily called by users.
