MSI and RMA they are quick to allow RMAs?!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The ASIC of my 7970 is pretty low (55.5%). The card overclocks not too bad, 1110mhz at stock voltage but it just does not react to an increased voltage. Max overclock being 1210mhz at 1.2v, I can get 1230Mhz with 1.3v... lol temperature are controlled with fan % and window opened (sub-zero outside).
So bad clocker + lot of heat even at stock settings. I get into the 80+ish if I block the fan at idle % which is 20%. Above that it gets very noisy rapidly and that is stock settings.

I already changed the thermal paste, but I realized it didn't help that much. Contacted technical support, hoping they would suggest TIM replacement, thus legalizing TIM replacement for me but they immediately granted me a RMA doh.gif
Do you think they could refuse my RMA because I changed their paste? frown.gif

Boom:

we do not recommend customer to modify or remove the HSF since it will void the warranty.

and I posted again due to no answer. I guess it is too late for me.
