[kit guru] AMD’s official statement over HD6990 warranty - Page 3

post #21 of 77
Pretty sad IMO. Who wants to spend that much on a GPU and be required to keep some giant ugly yellow sticker on it for everyone to see. This is just silly....

FAIL! Don't support overclocking with warranty, fine. Include a switch with tape on it and use as a selling point and don't conver under warranty, retarded.

Ask me left one!

Yea there is no way I would ever buy that card now. Even if I had all the money in the world I wouldn't buy that crap. This seriously has to be a joke.... I mean really...

It acts as dual-BIOS.

Btw, why are the same people who decry non-ref PCBs for their lack of voltage control whining about this? Some people on this forum have such double-standards.

"Why include a feature that will void the warranty if you use it?!"
"Fail!"

"Don't get the non-ref cards! They suck because they don't include voltage control!"
"Fail!"

You aren't serious right? You do realize that they can't tell you changed the voltage... When you increase the voltage on the card it doesn't imprint a giant mark on the PCB that says "WARRANTY VOID, VOLTAGE MODIFIED". If you need to RMA, you still can. The truth is, it's completely different than putting on a sticker you physically have to remove...

XFX strongly believe that if you add a performance enhancing switch which allows the end user to ENHANCE THE CARDS PERFORMANCE, WE Believe it is only right to warranty this benefit,
if you don't like this then get the xfx card. maybe a msi rep can come in here and state whether or not their warranty is covered with the switch or without.

lol. This is just too funny. What's the max overclocking people have got on this card anyways? Something tells me it's not a good overclocker probably
