Emphasis on bolded text.
the problem here is "common market" and how they interpret it..
I'm guessing they'll interpret it to favor them tho
Also worth remembering is that they only give the 'lifetime' warranty if you register the product within 30 days of purchase. not a lot of head-room.
and on top of that - their coolers are not aftermarket, which makes it run quite hot/loud. my old evga 570 got pretty hot/loud when gaming
