As for overclocking, yeah most companies don't warranty that either. The specifications that are listed are all that is ever guaranteed to work.
Amd actually have a bit of hardware in there CPUS to tell if something has been overclocked, if you havn't gone crazy AMD will still sort things out for you, but if your voltage has been set over the maximum they rate the cpu for then BAM no more warranty.
In the UK NONE of the companies let you change coolers.
For future reference just act like you never changed anything at all!
And yeah, Visiontek seem to be no better/worse than the other budget companies.
Get Asus or XFX if you want hassle free warranty.
Asus? You have to RMA the same card THREE times before they replace it with a REFURBISHED card.
XFX is hassle free? Ask Cadaveca how many 5xxx series cards he had to return. Sure they are hassle free but they better be for the amount of returns you will have to do to get a working card.
Honestly all GPU's are luck of the draw. I like HIS and Visiontek yet some people have the worst luck with them. Luck of the draw I say.
