King Mod Guarantee for Modified Processors
24 Months King Mod Guarantee Included
All Caseking-modified Intel processors bearing the der8auer or King Mod brands are originally tray variants without the usual boxed packaging or a CPU cooler. It is generally impossible to invoke direct manufacturer warranties by the manufacturer Intel® for such OEM CPUs. For this reason, Caseking offers a two year guarantee for processors that have been modified on our own accord, which extends beyond the legally mandated liability for material defects (seller's warranty or "Gewährleistung") in order to guarantee functionality within the limits of the modifications and (possibly expanded) product specifications.
The burden of proof on the part of the customer, as required by law when processing a seller's warranty claim starting six months after the item was purchased, is therefore waived. The King Mod guarantee is therefore not just valid for pre-existing defects, but also for those that may arise during proper and appropriate use of the product. However, we reserve the right to reject warranty claims due to inappropriate, negligent or unauthorised use.
The King Mod guarantee can only be processed through the Caseking RMA system. Products fulfilling the RMA criteria will be replaced or, in cases where same product is not available, exchanged against a model of equivalent value (e.g. a newer CPU generation), otherwise the purchase price will be reimbursed in full. Mechanical modifications (e.g. polishing or re-delidding) performed by customers themselves invalidate the King Mod guarantee. The aforementioned modifications are easily identified and proven due to the sealing.
Available Modifications & Combinations of Modifications Include:
- Delidding (removal of the Integrated Heat Spreader for further processing)
- Integrated Heat Spreader swap (silver IHS for improved thermal conductivity)
- Alternative Thermal Interface Materials (improved heat-conducting compound e.g. liquid metal)
- Pre-tested overclocking (pre-tested to guarantee certain overclocks)
- IHS lapping and nickel-plating (concave curvature removed to improve contact area)
- (Laser-)Engraving (with custom logos and distinctive features)
Further information on the specifications and characteristics we guarantee can be found in the product descriptions of the respective products.
