XFX motherboard warranty

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I looked it up and am still quite curious of what their policy is for transferring ownership. Like everywhere on forums I read "Double Lifetime warranty" Including on motherboards, but XFX only guarantees 2 years. I am really considering buying a XFX 780i motherboard 2nd hand off of this site or another, but if it doesn't have at least a mild warranty on it, I rather get a 750i FTW (or 680i LT) board for about the same price and still have warranty on. Can I get any clarification on this?

The double lifetime warranty doesn't cover mobos, just the 6-9 series video cards. The warranty doesn't transfer per se, but you can probably get warranty service anyway if the seller includes their receipt.

That said, you have statistics on your side that if the mobo hasn't failed within a year, it probably won't until it's out of warranty anyway. As well, pretty much everyone will tell you to stay away from Nvidia's chipsets unless you're adamant about SLI.

I know but there seems to be this heavy misconception saying otherwise. And not many people have been *****y about 2nd hand sells. I have even read a 1+1 warranty, where the "new" owner will get a year if the board has been used less than another on XFX. The only policy I know that is close is eVGA's 1 year without registration and another if you do.
Which is clearly different from this
