Should a CPU break after a 1 MHz increase, can it be RMA'ed?

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?

More about should break increase
  1. 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
  2. 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)
