Its Multitronic, if im allowed to say The guys there are just not good and recently I've had a lot of problems with them.

And before everyone jumps on me and say im a dumbass and destroy parts im not

the corsair ax850 was doa, got a new one straight away
Logitech g930 worked great but didn't charge
OCZ vertex 2, worked 3 weeks until my nice gtx570 froze and messed up the ssd (got a new one on rma)

I've been building my own computers for 18years and never had a problem before the beginning of this year. God i hate computers right now, should go play with dolls instead

Normally rma they will only ask for the card and nothing else from you, so next time unless they ask you for the whole package dont give it to them cause when the company sent back rma its just the card and nothing else....

And if they do ask for the full package ask them to give you some sort of receipt saying they took everything so later on you can blame them if they didnt give it all back to you.

As for the sticker im not sure i mean its not a big deal my evga one was like that and it was sealed when i bought it, my zotac one the sticker was sideways too but i didnt really mind since the card was working fine... my gigabyte was probably the worst opening it to put on my waterblocks i found a piece of metalic paper like the ones you roast chicken in the oven with inside that could probably cause a short ....... its all down to quality control and nowdays really i havent seen any company do a decent job of it.

Yeah I'm getting tired of faulty hardware as well.
Haven't really had a problem in the past but on some recent upgrades I've had nothing but bad luck.

Bought an MSI 6970 Lightning = Black Screen Freezing
Returned for Refund

Bought a Gigagbyte GTX570 SO = Sometimes won't post and fans are at 100%
Thinking about RMA'ing for an exchange (still waiting on ticket submitted to gigabyte support)

These "premium cards" are crappier than my old reference ATI 4850 which is still working.

Bonus?: Bought a Corsair H100 and the fan controler stopped working.
On it's way for an exchange.

You don't RMA a 2 week old card, You have it replaced.

Yeah, nothing is a big deal as long as the card would work as it should without adjusting anything, i mean i can probably get it to work but thats not what i paid for, if u know what i mean

A Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA, or as the alternative Return Merchandise Agreement) is a transaction whereby the recipient of a product arranges to return goods to the supplier to have the product repaired or replaced or in order to receive a refund or credit for another product from the same retailer or corporation within the product's warranty period.
I can RMA it to newegg.com and get a replacement for a 2 week old card.
