Does this count?

If not, I also overvolted it to mobo max, and ran the CPU at 4.7 GHZ.

In addition, the whole board is smeared in vaseline, and I put it in an oven to melt it off afterwards (just high enough for it to drip, the hardware gets that hot anyway. / extremely careful.)

I Also spilt acetone on the mobo while filling my dice pot.

lmao, imagine sending that mobo in to support, covered in vaseline and having parts screwed up with acetone...

haha oh god i got a few laughs out of that thumb.gif

I voided my warranty on my EVGA GTX560 Ti by installing a waterblock on it (pretty sure that voids??)
Voided warranty on a month old Corsair 650TX, bloody thing was so loud and annoying and it seemed like too much trouble sending it back so I just threw in a 140mm noctua fan and it runs like a charm now.Please also note that this was my first computer I ever built so it was all a bit scary for me to be opening up a psu and adding a fan which I wasn't sure would do the job.

Technically voided warranty on CPU by overclocking it but that doesn't really count haha

Voided my warranty on multiple laptops ( in fact I almost electrocuted myself for the first time working on the inside of a laptop while it was running, I've never been so close to sparks and smoke with my hands and ****ting myself in the process. I don't usually do that... especially now biggrin.gif Oh and don't worry, the laptop is fine lol)

On the non-computer side I've voided warranty on a ps2 (got it for free when it first came out with a phone), phone also voided. That's all I can think of right now but I'm certain there are more things, I just cant help myself, no point in buying electrical equipment without having a little fun with it.

EDIT: That reminds me, voided warranty on a couple HDDs too tongue.gif

Well I guess that would depend on the predilections of the IT guy that inspects the board. He may be a muthatrucka who is down with borkin a Mainboard and not see anything wrong with a little vaseline and acetone. Some people are a little kinky like that. tongue.gif

My Bro has that same DLink adapter. Of course we also have the ASUS ones too. Those things come in handy for building systems that are scheduled to be tethered to a wall. thumb.gif

I can't seem to help it. Every time I see a warranty sticker this little Sam Kinnison on my shoulder screams in my ear "DOOO IT, DOOOOO IT YOU P#$$%"

I voided a few of my N61Jq laptop's warranty in four ways:

1. OC'ed the Mobility Radeon 5730.

2. Adjusted the BCLK to OC my pathetically weak, locked quad-core i7 720qm (1.6 GHz) by altering the registry of a locked software. Then I backed off when I noticed it was overdoing the OC. 133Mhz to 143 Mhz even with the slightest adjustment was frightening.

3. OC'ed my 8GB 1333 MHz RAM to 7-5-4-17. Sadly the CAS was locked, and I had to abandon the OCing because the OCing software constantly crashed and undid the OCing, even though the RAM timings were stable under Mem86. I do have the admit one of the error messages was amusing, "xxxxx Divided by 0"

4. Replaced the crappy thermal paste for the cooling system after breaking the GPU's and CPU's warrenty stickers. Then I dropped two of the fan's case's screws, one of them was stuck between the chassis and a cable. The other was jammed between the chassis and small PCB board that connected the AC adapter's plug to the motherboard. Shaking the laptop only made it worse.

One of my friends told me to stop eating butter while working on computers when I told him about it.


On my previous Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop, I upgraded the CPU and undervolted it. Then my hard drive died within days. My dad blames Spyware Doctor to this day.


EDIT: Oh, and I also tore apart an Antec USB-Powered Notebook Cooler and tried to reverse the air flow by splicing the wires. I initially used a knife to cut away the insulation, then I got impatient and took a BBQ lighter to burn/melt it so I can peel it away. The reversing mod didn't work, so I undid the splicing job and taped it back together.

EDIT2: I just learned that my dad had bought a extended warranty after placing an order for the N61Jq laptop. rolleyes.gif

I cannot even tell you how many things I have voided the warranties on... In fact, it is one of my jobs to take heatsinks off of things and slap new thermals on them for customers. Granted, the warranties on most of that stuff is voided already or the warranties ran out, but I mod almost everything I own anyway. biggrin.gif

OCN FTW!!!
