Customer assumes all costs in shipping to us, and we assume the cost in shipping back to the customer. All replacement/repaired products are shipped UPS Ground unless a rush is requested. The cost of such a shipping upgrade is to be paid by the customer prior to shipment.
We suggest you contact our tech support team first by posting a question in our Help Desk to determine whether the item is indeed defective before shipping. Then make an online return merchandise authorization (RMA) request. See Return Policy for more details. No phone call or e-mail is necessary!
All OEM CPU's unless specifically stated otherwise, carry an implied, industry-standard 30-Day warranty against defects due to manufacturing or failure. Warranty does not include overclocking, use of CPU without cooling fan, improper voltage, or any use of the CPU that does not fall into the designed use of the CPU as intended by the manufacturer.
All parts (except OEM CPUs, and refurbished items) come with a warranty against manufacturer defect or failure for a period of one year from the date of purchase. This warranty covers replacement or repair of the product, which is determined by availability, our vendor, and the time of purchase. Replacement is often used within 30 days after purchase with the same product or like product when direct replacement is unavailable. Repair is often necessary for items purchased more than 30 days ago. A longer waiting period is expected for repair and the customers are encouraged to contact the original manufacturers directly to shorten the waiting period.
Manufacturers sometimes offer additional warranty for the following products: hard drives, retail boxed CPUs, and monitors. Customers should contact the manufacturer after warranty with Directron.com expires. Customers may also pay Directron.com a service fee ($25 per item) plus shipping to have such warranty work completed through Directron.com.
Lifetime warranty is given to all Kingston or Viking memory and cables. This warranty is for replacement of like items only. Lifetime warranty does not cover items out of production if Directron.com no longer stocks them. This warranty is valid only for the original buyer but not transferable. (Lifetime is defined as the lifetime of the product on the market. Outdated technology is not covered by lifetime warranty if the item is no longer available on the common market as a new product.)
Software is not returnable or exchangeable once opened, or if the serial number or registration number has been removed. Opened software includes, but is not limited to, removing the shrink wrap from the software or opening the seal on the envelope.
Any software that has a visible installation code / COA number may not be returned except for media exchange in the case of broken media. Microsoft software products may only be returned for media exchange. No returns or refunds on License products.
Media Exchange is defined as replacement of broken media with working media for a given product due to shipping damage or defective media.

All Other Warranty Coverage
Certain parts may come with extended Manufacturer's Warranty. The equipment manufacturer honors this warranty and Directron.com assumes no responsibility in honoring this warranty. Directron.com will attempt to RMA a product to the manufacturer in special cases when requested by the customer. Customer assumes all shipping costs to manufacturers.
Warranty is not granted if a product is received without original invoice. Warranty is void if serial tags, receiving numbers, product stickers, or manufacturer seals have been removed, altered or tampered with. Warranty is void if mishandling, improper use, or defacing of the product that would normally void manufacturer's warranty has occurred. Products damaged due to improper or inadequate packaging when returned for RMA purposes are not granted warranty coverage.
