XFX Modder Friendly Warranty

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Some here seem to be unaware of the XFX Modder Friendly Warranty still.

This warranty includes:

-Lifetime warranty and transferrabnle if you sell it on
-Removing the factory heatsink and using aftermarket coolers
-Overclocking the heck out of the card until it pops

They are looking into cross shipping RMA as well!

Way to go XFX!

EVGA already allows overclocking, aftermarket cooling, and already has cross-shipping (for a fee).

When the first came up with the warrently, the listed volt modding as acceptable.

I emailed them about 2 weeks ago, and they are fully fine with you doing it if there are no physical mods done to the board. (IE, pencil mods.) Not that would've known anyway, but still.

Yeah I've had an XFX 7950GT for about 7 months now. I had forgotten to register for the warranty (supposed to do it within 30 days of purchase). I didn't think I needed to register as I had planned to overclock, and I thought overclocking would void the warranty.

I just went ahead on the website and registered it anyways, yesterday. Hopefully they don't look into my date of purchase too closely if ever I need to utilize the warranty .

I will never buy anything other than XFX now. It's a top quality card, and overclocks great. All the reviews seem to put it at the top of other cards (though I haven't seen eVGA). Also, XFX is more readily available in Canada than eVGA.

Anyone wanna join me in Team-XFX?

this is why i likes XFX. im considering getting a 8600GTS XXX edition. who knows, when the HD2600 or the HD2900XT 1gb DDR4 comes out, and prices get pushed down a bit.

Aftermarket cooler, overclocking, double lifetime, cross rma. Preety soon they will support volt mods and actually SHOW you how to unlock their cards in the manual
