6990 voided warranty if on BIOS 2? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
if you remove the sticker that says warranty void then your warranty is void.

Just switch back to bios 1. Sorted.
Do not remove any stickers from the card. Sorted.

You make it sound so easy, so how do you get at the switch underneath the sticker without removing the sticker?
They will probably have the tear-apart type sticker like those serial number ones...

As of now, XFX and Sapphire's warranty will remain after using that OC'ed BIOS

XFX will warranty the 880Mhz OC Usage as per our usual RMA terms, as long as there is no Consumer Induced Damage etc, as per our usual terms and process for RMA’s…

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.

Buy XFX or Sapphire 6990 if you are ''scared''.

Just wait and see. All the other manufacturers willl follow XFX and Sapphire soon, or else they wont sell any card. Do you really think Asus won't follow, after doing crazy cards like the Mars? Come on. Be serious. If they want to sell 6990, they will do like XFX and Sapphire. And they exist to sell. So they will bend like their competitors.

Another blownout of proportion ''problem''. The usual on the internet.

FUD. Fear Doubt Uncertainty, with Nvidia fanboys throwing oil on the fire. Sigh.

If you damage your 6990 while overclocking, AMD cannot help you nor replace the card, neither can Sapphire, and your warranty is NOT void if you take off the sticker, it would have said "Warranty Void if Removed" on the sticker.
