Do you think XFX will RMA a 6870 due to v-reg whine?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Pretty much explains it in the title. I started folding about about 3 weeks-month ago and it has really gotten noticeable. Its an XFX 6870 Black Edition, so maybe the BE status will help some(maybe?). Does anyone here have recent experience with XFX RMA service? and if so, how long does the process normally take for time of year and what do they do? Do they send me a refurbed card or a new PCB with an old heatsink?

The help would be much appeciated thumb.gif

XFX can really be hit or miss. I've heard horror stories and I've heard stories with happy endings. You'll really just need to call them up and see how it goes. They will treat you how you treat them wink.gif

Yeah thats what I figured. I'm just more worried about the quality of service and what actually happens to the card more than anything. redface.gif

Well before you send it off take lots of pictures with your name proving its yours. Take pictures of the packaging. Have sufficient proof that you did not do anything severely wrong to it. Be nice to the customer service and you should be good to go. A good way to think about it is, 90% of the time the people who post about rma services are the ones who had a bad experience. People don't often post back saying they had a great experience. smile.gif

Cap whine is normal AFAIK and not something most companies will RMA for.
