|The 3 best options for resale value appear to be EVGA, MSI, and Asus. EVGA has just revised their policy and appear to be the best option.||MSI supports overclocking, but the 3rd year carries a fee. Asus has the 3 years, but doesn't support overclocking.|
|*E You are also welcome to use an aftermarket fan or waterblock as long as you return it to stock condition before sending it in for RMA.|
|*X* we recommend that you contact XFX prior to any modifications so that we can update your profile and product registration to avoid potential issues with warranty support. http://xfxforce.com/en-us/help/support/WarrantyInformation.aspx|
|EVGA COMMENTS||Now all cards have a default 3 year warranty.||AR have a limited lifetime warranty - If registered within 30 days of purchase.||We do not void a warranty if you overclock the card, that's why we offer precision and ELEET.||You are also welcome to use an aftermarket fan or waterblock as long as you return it to stock condition before sending it in for RMA.||http://www.evga.com/articles/00671/|
|http://www.evga.com/support/warranty/||All products must be returned in its original condition. Products |
received by EVGA for replacement that include 3rd-party attachments (CPU
heatsink backplate, memory chip heatsinks, etc) will have all
attachments removed and discarded. EVGA holds the discretion to return
the product to the sender if necessary.
|The product must be returned to EVGA in the original factory |
configuration and condition. All aftermarket modifications must be
reversed before sending in the product for replacement.
|Zotac||Apparently Zotac has said that as long as you have the original receipt (but even if you aren't the original owner), they will RMA the card. ***NEEDS VERIFICATION***||Their lifetime warranty has a major caveat however, they call lifetime the time they "produce" a card. That can be only a few years!|
|*MSI* We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.|
Heatsink is removable, but will void your warranty if the PCB is
damaged, you will also need to restore the card to stock condition when
returning for RMA.
