Now, what I am about to say is an honest point of speculation and by no means should anyone take this to heart, but if your purchase it from the AIB...then warranty it out...do the AIB's eat the cost of the warranty/rma completely? Or does AMD take a bite to by basically warrantying the product to AIB's?

This would only make sense, because for example:

AMD sends out potentially defective/poor quality units to, let's say, EVGA. If many people end up RMA'ing the card, does EVGA take all of that cost? Simply buying from the people who may have sent them a chip/gpu of poor quality? Or does AMD cover that?
Such is news. Not everything that is reported is as relevant or significant as one might think.

Fanaticism and half-baked thoughts are what fuel the FUD in these discussions.

Caution:
Do not use the 450W setting unless you are familiar with overclocking and are using high-quality system components to ensure maximum system stability. If you encounter system instability or other unexpected system performance while using the 450W setting, return the graphics card to the factory-supported 375W setting, as your system may not be properly equipped to handle the increased demands of the 450W setting.

I'm sure they will cover the warranty for the video card. Unless its XFX.
This is the way around the pci-e 300 watt power limits. IMHO They will cover the video cards. Its not the video cards. Its the rest of the of your computer at risk??? IDK?
Those pci standards are there for a reason. They are old and are in need of updating.

On the newest model it doesn't void your warranty.

I agree with that. Bad enough they won't let you OC a High Performance card but then they add a huge hideous sticker to boot. Never.
I never did go for the dual processor cards, to hot and to much strain on the MB slot. I would rather buy 2 cards and Xfire them.

When was the last time you saw a "Made by ATI" or "Made by AMD" card on Newegg? (Excluding workstation cards, which are irrelevant to this anyway.)

Rather than ****** at AMD. Has anybody tried to the intelligent thing and confirm that all other AIBs outside of XFX are voiding the warranty if you remove the sticker?

Its pretty stupid of AMD/ATI to include an overclock switch but denying your RMA if you kill the card, then why add the switch in the first place if its a potential way to kill your card?

No, EVGA is fine. ..Unless you need to return a mobo. "OOPs!" Some pins are bent, pay 50 bucks or do not pass go.
Oh yea xD but there was one guy who got back his EVGA motherboard from RMA and it had pubes and "stains" on the I/O bracket.
