well i definetly want to send it back, what im asking is if you know if intel will care if its the second time. Will they get suspiscious and test it this time, or just not really care. Another thing, even at 3.5ghz with 1.5v this cpu was idling at 30c.. how is so cool if this chip overclocks so poorly.
Mine idles at 29C with 1.5v at 3.8 GHz. Idle temps don't mean much. It's the load temps and it's all about how much voltage it takes to get it stable.
I'd just call them and tell then it was running hot or something stupid, anything.
