I thought XFX had a modding-friendly warranty? I would think so if you have that warranty

well sweet, 5 series it out of production. My 5850 I'm pretty sure doesn't know how to maintain voltages. And the fan is dying. But I just want a working 5850, I'm not gonna hassle them to play RMA roulette.

It's not illegal to fraud a warranty, you're just a scumbag if you do, because 99% of the time you're the ones complaining about prices getting jacked up.

Yea I just RMA'd a XFX 4890 because of the fan vibrating, and received a 6850 replacement. But the fan on the 6850 makes my computer sound so loud.

I just RMA'd my XFX 4890 and got a 6850, so maybe that's what you'll get as well.

Here is what the XFX support person sent me:
  • "
  • All products must be shipped back in original stock configuration. Items permanently
    modified or damaged due to modification may be refused for warranty servicing.
  • Any product sent in with a missing or altered serial sticker will not receive warranty service
    and be shipped back as is.
  • Any physical damage, either accidental or environmental, is not covered under warranty.
    Items with parts broken off, removed, scratched, corroded, rusted, with residue/foreign
    material, or mishandled will not be repaired, they will be immediately returned. Pictures will
    be taken upon unpacking and inspection.
  • In the United States and Canada: Motherboards carry a 2 year warranty from the purchase
    date. Video cards carry a 2 year warranty that can be extended to our double lifetime
    protection if registered within 30 days."
