So, does de-lidding/cracked silicon fall under "running outside of Intel's specifications"?

This could be a good way to update to a newer stepping on a processor.

The Intel tuning program is a great warranty. It allows you to be able to overclock your CPU, with no worries about voiding your warranty. The warranty covers any damages to the CPU, the best part about it, is if you ever have to RMA your CPU back to Intel, they will replace the CPU for you, no questions asked.

I personally own this plan on all of my "K" series I5's and I7's. I have not yet damaged any of my CPU's but it is nice to have the warranty for the peace of mind if anything does happen.

Note: This only applies to the "K" series and the Extreme edition CPU's.

I think de-lidding the CPU would constitute willful physical destruction and would not be covered. Heh. I think it only covers over-volting and overclocking.

No. The plan covers the tuning of settings only. All other conditions of the standard warranty apply. Delidding immediately voids the warranty.
