Boutique system builder CyberPowerPC claims it's the first U.S. computer manufacturer to offer Intel's Performance Tuning Protection plan, which gives reckless or unlucky overclockers the opportunity to take a one-time mulligan on an overclock-gone-bad and receive a replacement processor. Intel charges a nominal fee (compared to the cost of a replacement processor) for the added protection, but CyberPowerPC's offering it for free on select setups.
Customers who configure their build with a second generation Intel K Series processor and a Gigabyte Z68 motherboard are eligible to receive the added layer of protection free of charge as part of CyberPowerPC's ' Super Bowl Special ' promotion, a series of sales and special offers that end on February 5, 2012 a minute before midnight (PST) rolls around. Those who choose a different motherboard can add Intel's overclocking insurance for between $24 and $39, depending on the processor.
"We’re very excited to partner up with Intel and Gigabyte to provide this service for our enthusiast customers," said Eric Cheung, CEO of CyberpowerPC. "We’re inviting our hardcore gaming customers to push their systems to the limit because CyberpowerPC and Intel have your back."
CyberPowerPC also offers its own in-house overclocking service called Venom Boost and will OC your system for you, up to an additional 30 percent.
