No you're going to have to send it as it was when you bought it or they will not RMA it, technically you have voided the warranty when you modified it.

Don't tell them, and it must be in its original setup.

Fire up your grill. Insert video card and leave in for about 7 minutes. Remove and then RMA and tell them it burnt up and caught on fire.
