Anyone ever returned an OC'd card? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
I would trust EVGA with my life if i told them to make a card that would never die and if it did I would...lol jk bout that but I do trust EVGA a lot and I have my 7900GS running stable at 625/835 lol with pretty much a 28% OC on the core and memory. Gotta love EVGA.

PS: They are the only company besides artic cooling that gave me a case sticker with my new rig!!! Actully they gave me 2, hahaha damn commy bastards I wanted a C2D sticker....

If they won't take the card back, buy an identical card from newegg, switch the cardsand either RMA the old one with newegg and send the old one back to XFX, or just switch them and refund the old one with newegg- can't remember what newegg's return policy is.

I know for a fact that XFX wont let you overclock it because I read the whole policy about the warranty. Also if they find it to be overclocked, they can either charge me for the repairs to the card, or send me a bill for the shipping of the dud card back to my house.

If that happens i might try the newegg thing. Does the box say the serial numbers, because I dont have the box from the card i have now.

Tell them you don't know what overclocking is you just used it on a Dell, and they'll just be like "Oh Ok..."

I've been having the same problems with my PNY 7900GS. Ridiculous load temps, high idle temps, and all from an non-OC'd day 1 to boot. But my family got me mine from best buy for the holidays (i insisted they buy from newegg). So now i think i have to RMA it directly to PNY.

So where did you send it too, the manufacturer or did you RMA it?

Thats what im afraid is gonna happen with mine, even though it was obviously faulty from the factory. I never thought twice about 73c load temps in games untill I joined the forum.
