Hello AKova9, Thank you for posting on the Intel ® communities. The information you have mentioned is correct, according to the pictures there is physical damage visible, this means that the processor is not covered by warranty. You can try asking your vendor to see if there is any kind of exception but from their part. Intel would not validate warranty for a device showing physical damage, the warranty only covers factory defects or issues.
