As the title says, if a processor, such as the i7 2600k, is bricked after the clock rate has been increased by 1 MHz despite running under 50 C, can it still be RMA'ed even though the manufacturer stated that it will not accept overclocked CPUs?

Most likley you wont get i rma. since you overclocked it. but if you can get it back to stock and then send it back you can most likley get ir rma'ed

but it must hawe bin a defect cpu annyways since it broke after 1mhz overclock wery wierd i think

instead of overclocking you can assume that turbo have done that and can try to claim
because their is no cpu that can not survive a 1mhz increase, this cpu is a defective one (from beginning)
