Oh I know lol. I call and ask the info first and if all is well then request the rma after. I originally said I took the cooler off to redo the thermal paste and put memory sinks on. which he was fine with. Then I later on tongiht called asking about the thermal pad left overs on the memory, He dont know anything beyond my first name and said its all good....
I know that you deff dont want to give info first then tell them for them to cancel the RMA lol better off sending the card in under the hopes of it going through anyways than telling them and having it revoked...
Oh and at that my old saphire 5850. I RIPPED OFF A CHIP on it LOL
and rma'd it. I put a mem sink on a lil wee mosfet or something way too small and used way too much super glue
Told them I had it sitting for a while and never used it and finally went to use the card and it wont work, idk why. And sure enough... They sent me a new card working, Perhaps I got lucky
