Shouldn't be too hard to remove the sticker without damaging it.

This. Overvolting with brands such as Asus doesn't void warranties. At least not in my case of 2 RMAs. If you have features you should stand behind it.

This kinda reminds me of some car companies with launch control. They use the launch control in review to get awesome 0-60 and stuff but when you break your tranny, be ready to pay up.

Who says you have to remove the sticker to flick the switch?

From what I know, the PCIe standard set 300w as the limit. The card is already at 375w at stock, so...

Exactly!

And let me guess, they are marketing the card as being the fastest on the planet, based on the overclocked numbers. The ones you can only achieve if you void the warranty, which means running the card out of factory spec.

And imagine if the GTX590 is faster at stock than the 6990 at stock ? How are they going to advertise it ?

If this is what is happening, then it is false advertising and they should be punished. It's the same as advertising an overclocked CPU as being faster compared to the competition at stock.

Not only is it ridiculous, but it implies they do not stand behind the possible outcome, which means that they haven't properly tested it and thought this thing through, which only goes to corroborate what Tom's Hardware said, that this card was rushed to market.

I don't understand all the rage here. I think it's pretty standard that anytime you overclock something you run the risk of destroying and aren't covered under any warrenty. I guess most people take it for granted that it's normally very difficult to tell if a cpu or gpu has been overclocked.

If you aren't willing to risk your $700 investment, then dont overclock.

It's the fastest card, even at stock.

I am not raging, but if you put a feature on a product and then tell us not to use it, why bother? Here, have my 6 core sig rig, but if you use more than 4 cores, I will take it back. It just doesn't make sense.
