    MojoKid writes “Intel today unveiled a pilot program that provides warranty protection to overclockers in the event they get a little bit overzealous with pushing the pedal to the metal. For a fee, Intel will provide a one-time replacement of certain processors that are damaged by overclocking and/or over-volting. It’s completely optional and in addition to the original three-year standard warranty that already applies to Intel’s retail boxed processors. Intel isn’t yet ready to flat-out endorse overclocking but the Santa Clara chip maker is perfectly content to provide a ‘limited remedy if issues arise as a result of an enthusiast’s decision to enable overclocking,’ for a modest fee, of course. The deal applies only to certain Extreme Edition and K-series (unlocked) processors currently, in Intel’s Core i7 and Core i5 families.”
