I didn't void anything. The card was RMAs several times to ASUS and they did a ****ty job. Also, applying your own TIM to the card does not void it, I asked the rep over the phone.

...really? Interesting. You should get that statement in writing for all the Asus 570 owners in here. Could help out quite a bit.thumb.gif

Also, there was no sticker that said "warranty void if removed."

Getting something solid from ASUS is pretty difficult. They tried to void the warranty on my friends G73SW laptop for downloading graphics drivers from nvidia. What actually happened was the hard drive took a crap in the middle of an update and because he mentioned the update they wouldn't honor the warranty. These things happen from time to time and then ASUS comes around and slaps everyone that works at that center for some act right.

They have been known to be relaxed at times such as my laptop when i changed my cpu and broke the warranty sticker. But at other times when they wouldnt let owners of certain netbook models change ram as an official policy.

But given any graphics card manufacturer I have been hearing for the longest time changing TIM is usually not a huge deal.

I've owned a good amount of Asus products throughout my life, even when they were just a small motherboard company. Can't say I've had too many run-ins with support or customer service, but I've always had pretty good luck with hardware. Also depends largely on the representative.

I have to hand it to them...letting users replace their TIM is a pretty bold move. Although they may be doing it because other manufacturers do, I can't imagine they'd do that willingly. Imagine all of the inexperienced teenage kids globbing that crap on and ruining their cards! This is something I like to only recommend in extreme circumstances.

Works out well for us though. If I ever need to reapply TIM, this was good to know!

Yeah I agree. I wouldn't ever mention changing the TIM to a CS rep since not only does policy change from time to time. The CS center's understanding all the way down to the individual representatives understanding of policy can be wrong. But they also don't always go looking for the unobvious. People working in the repair center's are just like us. They are there to get a job done and unless they see physical damage or conductive paste splattered all over the board they probably wont notice the difference or even care if there is. The people that do care work in whatever their industries version of loss prevention is and this only filters to the tech in the form of training.

If you need to do it or its the last thing to try. Go for it but nothing seems to be guaranteed and they could say something even if they normally allow it.

I want to go higher but 1.1v scares me.....as does the nice coil whine.

Evga only lets it go to 1.1 v so it where they know its safe, this card can run 70+c allday even 80+ they are safe to 97c evga OC like champs.

I agree. My EVGA's stay relatively cool but they've gotten into the mid-80's numerous times and I've never heard anything except the fan (no whine or anything like that) and they still OC as stable as they always have. Great company

Yay i think i finally got mine stable at 860Mhz (GPU) / 2050Mhz (Mem) with 1.038v. I want to go for 880Mhz 24/7 but i don't like the heat this thing creates.

Question about "reapplying Tim" on these Cards, What Tim do you use? I heard that;s its recommended to AVOID using Arctic silver 5 because of some alloys in it?

If you have the most unsteady hands in the world yes you might want to avoid AS5. Ive found pretty good success with my laptop gpu using Shin ETSU G751. I think the main reason the stuff works for me is in a situation where the surfaces are in perfect alignment this stuff is thinner than AS5. Supposedly its actually the worst of Shin Etsu's 3 pastes but its the only paste ive used where Ive seen an immediate difference. Quite a few other choices out there.
