Voided warranty by purchasing my Sapphire 4870x2 on ebay for $300. Sapphire warranty says must be rma'd w/ vendor w/in two years of purchase. Card croaked within 4 months . I baked it like 5 times which further diminished any possibility of warranty to zero. Card boots and idles by crashes w/ any mild effort, tried to sell it but no takers, ???, its collecting dust in my parts bin.

First time time I bought a card from ebay and that was the last time

Btw, I had to rma my 2nd Zotac GTX470 which all three have been on water blocks. Kept the oem cooler, used AS5 as it looks the same color as the Nvidia oem tim. Zotac rma has been great and no concerns. Do remember to plug the fan cable back to the pcb connector. I've heard some stories about people forgetting this and their warranty was denied due to "tampering".

Snapped off the fins on my Corsair Vengeance. They worked, but they heated up A LOT!

Why would you do something like that when it's easier just to buy sticks that fit under your Cooler? Not sure I see the sense of voiding a warranty that could negatively affect the performance of a component. But I guess everything we do has the possibility of negative effect.

@wermad...Haha "tampering", I love "tampering".

i suppose taking off the heatsink, replacing TIM, removing the plastic shroud is considered warranty voiding

Voided my last 2 CPU's after lapping them and I'm about to lap my H50 and 1090T.
post #99 of 238
My e7400 is lapped, so I think the warranty was voided the minute it saw the sandpaper coming at him

What constitutes voided warranty? Reaching the manufacturer's temperature or what?
