warranty and waterblocks(580's) - Page 4

post #31 of 52
Regardless this feels very wasteful to me...

Edit: Why not do extreme cooling and get your "Benching" numbers really high.

Besides, I'm not planning on going more than a year or two on these cards as Kepler and Ivy bridge (not initial release on either) will be my next build venture.
Yeah no worries mate I really would love some infomation on using waterblocks and warranty if anyone has any, or any experince with using waterblocks and warranty with other brands then EVGA?


Thanks, Sir Overkill.

Because im going for most powerful sigle CPU system that's in a case!
As I said for Fun! I have wasted alot more money then this on things that do alot of harm to me and others, this does no harm except financial harm!
I really just want a healthy hobbie, and since I have a back injury I can't really do much.

Thanks, Sir Overkill.

Except EVGA, most companies will void your warrenty the moment you touch just one screw on the card.

I think MSI used to allow removing the cooler, but as far as I recall, they don't allow it anymore.

EVGA allow, as long as no physical damage is done or damage due to water on the card.


Also, just saying, that if there is no damage, but the cards are just defective (like bad core or memory), most of the time you can just remove the water block, put on the original cooler, and ship for RMA.

Your only problem is that if you replace the cooler, you will replace the tim, which means it can be easily detected when doing RMA that you opened the card.

And last, I always recommend, test the cards before you put the water block on them.
You have no idea how irritating it is to finish everything, and realize your middle card is bad.

I know in automotive warranties the manufacturer has to prove that any modifications you made caused the damage, don't know if appropriate statutes apply only to car warranties or all warranties.

Thank you for the reply! So do you have to replace the tim when putting a waterblock on one of the cards?

Anybody have any experince with a RMA on a card that has had a waterblock on it?

any other brands which would still give warranty? Asus?

Thanks, Sir Overkill.

Well this is not automotive

I know that zotac and inno3d state, that if you remove the cooling block, or even the plastic cover, no warrenty. Forget it.

I will have to check at home about asus, but I think asus will void if you remove the cooling block.

You have to replace the tim anyway when you remove the original cooling block. You can't leave it on and put a new water block on it.
