If I reapply paste on my 480, does it void warranty?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I have EVGA btw.

I really want to lower the heat on this thing as much as possible and read how bad the OEM paste application is. I'm tempted to tinker, like I always am, but I would actually like to keep the warranty on my 480 since it cost me $450.

EVGA is really good about the warranties. I would clear it with them first - file a support ticket, if you've already registered it.

Yeah there's no harm in asking...

I'd imagine it would be alright as long as you don't write to them like a half-wit. Make it sound like you know your shi..stuff ;-)

It shouldn't void any warranty.

I wouldn't bother even telling them, because how are they going to know ?

I'm 100% sure it does not, you can even change coolers with EVGA and not break warranty as long as you rma it with the stock cooler.

Awesome! So even if a sticker is on top of a screw, they don't care so long as it's sent back with the stock cooler fully on?

Warranty will be VOID if you take the sticker off. EVGA allows you to overclock or change thermal and warranty is still intact. I can't believe you guys don't know about this.
