Safe Overclocking and Tuning Plan for Processors

The safe frequency for I7 7700K processor is only RAM with speed - 2133 MHz / 2400 MHz anything above that it is under the customers' responsibility.?

What does it means recommendations for Safe Overclocking.?

Basically it is only increase the host frequency multiplier to raise the final clock speed and then awaiting if BSOD will come after stepping up multiplier.

Is that true that is not recommended to touch the CPU voltage or the CPU host frequency because that will affect the entire processor structure.

But this is already the built-in option into certified producers features of the motherboard to to do so!

So my question is that what is anything over speed is not under the customers' responsibility but partly by mainboard producers give us such posibilities and Intel that

give us unblocked multiplier.!

So give us clues-> when We , customers will lost guarantee and how You prove that We overclocked in Not Safe Manner- 36 months is covered for new one.

What about this Tuning Plan?

and all info what I can get about details is only about status time guarantee period.

Is that true meaning that I can do whatever I want with unit after buying Tuning Plan- for 30 USD on top of price of Unit ?

All Best Regards

AOrlecki: Thank you very much for contacting the Intel® communities. We will do our best in order to provide the information you are looking for.



In regard to your question, there are no recommendations for safe overclocking, what we recommend is to use the processor at stock configurations with the default BIOS settings, as you mentioned before altering clock frequency or voltage may damage or reduce the useful life of the processor and other system components, and may reduce system stability and performance. Product warranties may not apply if the processor is operated beyond its specifications. That is the main reason why we have the Intel® Tuning Protection Plan, because by purchasing the plan you will be able to overclock the processor and if by any chance it gets damage, you will be able to replace it using the plan.

The option to be able to overclock it was given by Intel since there are many different users that take advantage of that feature, but if you use the processor out of specifications, it will be customer's responsibility if something happens to the system:

Once the processor arrives to our depot for warranty replacement, the agents in there will do a screening process on it and by doing so they will notice that the processor was overclocked.



Any further questions, please let me know.
