  1. Best answer
    Extended warranty doesn't cover OC'ing.
  2. overclockig carries a risk, warranty probably won't cover it, the risk is a lot lower tha it used to be, but there is still a small risk.

    nNewegg's Extended Warranty for CPUs takes over after the manufacturer's warranty expires. In most cases, after 3 years. Depending on the price of the CPU(minus the shipping charges and any taxes when applicable), you could pay anywhere from $5.99 to $39.99 ($0 ~$499.99) for a 1-Yr extension (4 years total warranty), $9.99 ~ $79.99 for a 2-Yr extension (5 years total) or $11.99 to $89.99 for 3 years additional (6-years total). While the 3-years is almost an overkill, the 1 or 2-yr is a sound investment, especially for DIYers, Gamers and Enthusiasts who tends to replace components as soon as a new one comes out. When a claim is filed, Service Net, the warranty provider, will send you an electronic newegg gift card equivalent to the original price of the CPU (minus Shipping & any taxes paid).

    nEx: you paid $499.99 for a CPU, and invested $39.99 for a 1-Yr Extended Replacement Warranty. 4 years from now, you can file a claim and get your $499.99 in a NE gift card:-) If you don't see the need for that CPU 4 years from now, at least you have a NE gift card that you can use to buy more geeky goodness.

    nNow, I don't know about you, but you'll never see that return on investment even if you put your $39.99 in the bank.
