This is just what I know. If buying a custom build, verify the terms with the supplier.
If in the USA, this is fairly standard from a system builder, "STANDARD WARRANTY: 3-YEAR [3 Year Labor, 1 Year Parts] LIMITED WARRANTY PLUS LIFE-TIME TECHNICAL SUPPORT"
If you build your own , buying the parts, The warranty initially is between you and the seller, i.e. Newegg, then between you and the manufacturer. You do of course not have labour or support for a DIY build, but the actual parts warranty is valid.
If in the UK or Australia, there are consume protection laws which, regardless of what the system builder states, cover things like, "fit for use" "of a reasonable quality" etc. They cannot give a 1 year parts warranty on a CPU that has a 3 year warranty. I think it reasonable to expect a system to last 3/5 years, and if it didn't, I would request repair with the supplier, if no joy, be taking the matter up with the relevant authority.
