Yes, it'll still be covered under volt modding... but you'll be charged for the changes that have to be made to get the card back to stock.

They cover overclocking completely, as long as no physical modifications have been made.

EVGA covers cards even if you over-clock them and even if you upgrade the cooling, only granted if the card doesn't fail or mess up as a fault of misuse or not seating the aftermarket heatsink properly.

I think BFG covers their cards the same way.
BFG doesnt do that, if you OC, say goodbye

A graphics card's lifespan is less then 3 years for most people (at least most people HERE), which means 3 years is equivalent to a lifetime warranty. (which is why that lifetime warranty is really just a marketing gimmick, nobody's going to want to warranty a replace a card after 3 years anyway)
not always, ive got cards older that i use still, one comp still uses a TNT2
