They responded 15 min later (live chat) that they did not cover warranty if I had altered the card in any way.
I than asked for a link to this rule because I found it odd that their terms was different than EVGA's (witch is the opposite, you CAN change the cooler as long as you dont damage the card doing so)
15 min later "Okay, if you havent damaged the card and reinstall the original cooler, you can send it in and we will send it to our distributor for RMA."
Always helps to ask questions tongue.gif probably 90% of normal users would just go "oh,, that sucks.. better just buy a new card"
Such crooks!
I guess EVGAs awesome policy's saved my bacon this time smile.gif

*Edit
Oh yea, we already covered this in another thread tongue.gif
the 770 may or may not fit perfectly with 680..
Iw found evidence for both (sadly most seams they wont frown.gif )

The x2 290s will be a whole new story when it comes to rads, but from what you guys are saying, adding another 240 down the road for the x2 290s will most likely happen, if prices ever go down a bit more for them.

Just gotta find somewhere to mount that inside of this haf xb alone is gonna be a project.

So true smile.gif that box is CRAMPED when it comes to rad space tongue.gif

With "minor" modifications, you can fit a 360 in the front.. it is also possible to add a 240 or 360 in the basement, but that requires some major modding. (120mm holes, removing HDD cage, adding higher feet, etc)
Then there is the external radiator solution, that im using. allowing me to run low OC at LAN and high OC at home.. but dont know if that will work with 2x290.
I suggest checking out kpoeticg's build log
Hes project isnt done yet, but I think he is the record holder of rad space INSIDE the XB.

*Edit
I think he is gonna end up with 2x360 in the top, 360 in front, 360 in basement and 120 in the rear. awesome stuff

Got everything in the mail today except for the 120 rad that I ordered the other night, which will be in tomorrow! So hopefully I should be finished by at least Friday. Any suggestions for what I should do before I install anything, should I clean all the blocks with distilled water before I install?

Couldnt hurt..
The blocks usually are pretty clean.. the radiators, however, can have "sand" from the manufacturing process in them.
Hot water and a good shake will get rid of it.. I had to do this about 20 times before only clean water came out. but it varies.. some brands is cleaned before sold, others are not (or atleast not sufficient)
After the hot water rinse is completed, rinse out the remaining water with distilled water.. one or two times should be plenty.

Remember the pics ;D and good luck

Some people like to make a loop with everything outside of the case and a bucket/filter to catch any debris. It can be a bit inconvenient but if you measure out the tubing lengths beforehand it isn't that much work.

With the haf xb, it should be easy since i can just take all the panels off and its in bench test mode its pretty wide open.

Yea, I'm gonna build the loop inside of the case first. Then when it's all connected and whatnot I'll disconnect the CPU/GPU blocks and the rads and just run it with an extra PSU I have with distilled water to clean it all out.
