msjohnsn Posted November 1, 2010 Share Posted November 1, 2010 920 chip, EVGA 758 motherboard, Corsair Dominator 1600 TR3X6G1600C86, no overclocking, everything running stock. Memory running at 1066 as I did not make any changes in BIOS. Did not overheat. Watercooled. System would not turn on one day, no lights on motherboard, nothing. After testing components, replaced cpu and system works great. Called Intel, as chip still under warranty. Victor - I'm the only Victor who answers the phone - said it was my memory which killed the chip. As the chip is only rated to use 1066 memory, any ram over that harms/damages the cpu. So according to Victor - I'm the only Victor who answers the phone- at Intel, anyone who uses RAM rated at higher than 1066 voids their warranty. Any suggestions on dealing with Intel about this dead chip? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
