Hey guys, looking to purchase a 7970 but I'm not sure which. Was going to go with the Sapphire 7970 OC but apparently sapphire voids warranty when you install an aftermarket cooler.
Hmm, thanks for your input but I've heard the newest XFX ones have Void stickers on them :s...Originally Posted by MASSKILLA
That is a good question!!
I think XFX doesn't because when I put a water block on my 5870 there wasn't any sticker on it saying if removed void warranty and i put my stock cooler back on the fan didn't work for some reason and when i contacted them on a RMA they just sent me a new shroud with a new fan on it.

@verbatim, I'm fairly sure MSI doesn't void the warranty, they just don't state that because they don't want to encourage noobs to do stupid crap.I just wanted to know if e.g. sapphire, HIS or XFX (cheapest GFX cards I can get) void warranty.
Not just asking about XFX though, in general which 7970 manufactures provide warranty even when removing stock cooler.Originally Posted by tsm106
It's been like two years now.
