Warranty from the date of purchase, and things the warranty doesn't cover
How can you tell if your product is still under warranty?

Intel has a three-year warranty from the date of purchase for most processors, server and desktop boards, and RAID controllers and modules.

No warranty on:
  • OEM processors (processors not sold in an individual box)
  • Damage to a processor from external causes
  • Non-validated hardware used
  • Products that ship with a different printed warranty
  • Intel® Desktop Board DG41BI (2 year warranty only)

If you bought a computer from a manufacturer such as HP, Dell or Gateway, or it otherwise came with a processor already installed, contact that reseller for warranty replacement.

Intel doesn't track purchase dates. You may be required to have proof of purchase for a warranty replacement.
