I dont think newegg will take it back if you tell them it died because you tried to flash the bios.

If GPU warranties and RMA's are the same as cell phones then flashing it voids any warranty...Since it is still fairly new however I would TRY to RMA it.. best of luck mate!

Do you have any system with an IGPU? you can always boot the system tro the IGPU, plug in the 660 in the PCI and flash it to the original Bios. If you try to RMA it like that they will most likely deny it.

If all else fails EVGA Support might be able to help you out.
