not a bump.
From the Retail Edge Page:

Intel® Core™ i7 Processor Product and Warranty Information
  • Intel processors offered in the Purchase Program are covered by the standard three-year product warranty.
  • Installation instructions, warranty information, contact information and an Intel sticker will be included in the box.
  • Processors are already released for sale and fully supported by Intel Customer Support.
  • Purchase Program purchasers are entitled to Standard Warranty Replacement coverage but not Advance Warrant Replacement coverage.

Digging through the manual in the box it says that you need to have proof of purchase for warranty service. The manual also says in very very large capital letters that the warranty only extends to the original purchaser. Warranty coverage is terminated with a transfer.

Therefore... to get warranty coverage you'd need the original invoice, (all the RE ones have names on them) and the original buyer of this to help out. So in other words, no warranty.

Sorry if this is a threadcrap.
