a few days ago my cpu died, so i sent it to the shop i bought it from.
they called and said that they checked it and it's burned and they saw some marks.
i told them that i didnt see any burn marks on it when i gave it to them and that the cpu was well mounted on the motherboard,the hsf was fine and i didnt changed any clock of the cpu. they said again that it looks burned and amd wouldnt replace it.
i dont know what to do.
help me.

p.s
is there another way a cpu can die beside get burned?

Yeah. Overvolting can screw with the transistors (which isn't something you can see just looking at the CPU), the core can be squashed, the CPU could be manufactured outside normal tolerances and die early, and so on.

If you didn't see any burn marks, they're probably lying. Yell at them.

Tell them you would prefer the standard exchange rather than the Smith and Wesson one. Hope you live close noise helps sometimes.
