    Hmm... could be a not so good overclocker. Wouldn't call it a bad chip though. 3.6GHz is faster than stock and there's no guarantee.

    You could always accidentally kill it then send it back to Intel. Get in the car, wiggle around to generate that anoying static charge that sometimes zaps you when you get out and touch the body work. Touch the CPU instead, that should kill it stone dead. Get a replacement under warranty, job done.

    Oh well, one of the downsides of living in Romania is that resellers will always ask the client thousands of questions and most of the time refuse warranties for "improper using". Especially when the components are bought from a online store. So, I'm not willing, just yet to do that.
    And maybe Q9650's prices will drop a little (it's over 400$ here) and I'll replace it for that.
