    Palit Microsystems Ltd, leading graphics card manufacturer, is proud to announce a closer co-operation with EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana-based premium water cooling gear manufacturer from Slovenia. This decision has been mutually taken in order to offer best possible support to customers deciding to watercool their Palit engineered graphics card. Palit always takes it a step further and develops electrically improved versions of graphics cards offering substantialy higher performance and reliability out-of-the-box.

    This already high overclocking & stability potential can be further improved by the use of highest performance water cooling solutions provided by EK Water Blocks. As a result of this co-op Palit customers can expect a much quicker availability on these new, customized graphics cards offering a high quality customized water cooling solution from the launching day on. The first fruit of this collaboration will be the release of EK Water Blocks Full-Cover water block for Palit's Titan-killer graphics card - the GeForce GTX 780 Super JetStream which is due to release in second half of August 2013.

    palit the only manufacturer who void warranty if you unscrew the stock cooler... (for waterblock installation, cleaning...)
    they even put a sticker on the screws
    now they act like they give a fuck about watercooling...

    Their not the only ones... Sapphire, XFX, Asus, & HiS do it too. I think the only ones that dont are MSI and EVGA - maybe a few others. Unfortunately warranty policies arent the same, it differs depending what part of the world you're from which is just silly

    some companies can adapt the warranty if you ask them about removing the heatsink etc

    i wish there was a block for my card tbh!

    thats BS - they technically are the same company. It doesnt matter if its the Euro or South America's division, Warranty policies should still be the same unless theres a split and they both go under different names other then XFX - such as adding the region where the card was purchased on the box. When i pick up an XFX graphics card from the shop, it says XFS on it not XFX USA or XFX Europe just 'XFX'

    Im gonna speak to a friend of mine who spent a few years studying law and see if this is against consumer or trading standards.

    The different policies in warranty are dictated by the laws and regulations of individual countries/states/regions/etc.
