    waxking, just for a little more understanding, did your water block also cool the ram on the card, and if not did they have some type of heatsink on them to dissipate heat, because GDDR3 gets pretty damn hot at those speeds.

    I already voltmodded (after it failed) the one I returned to them
    :laugh:

    Too bad I used conductive ink and put the stock cooler back.

    Not defrauding, but some people do stuff that voids the warranties that doesn't hurt the card at all.

    dude please stop trollingand calling people liers, i read a sample of your posts, it appears that most of what you do is insult people and products and troll, how somebody like you managed to not get banned boggles the mind.

    I think its time for you to walk away, you clearly think XFX is totaly right for lieing/making shit up to avoid a warrinty when they could have just been HONEST from the start and said removing the sticker voided the warr(clearly it did)

    Waxking, is all this information documented via email? if so could you post copys of said emails, I would just like to see how they worded things.



    And a little FYI for you all, IF the card was shiped UPS thru a cold enviroment, then droped off at a nice warm office, opened and put out for a couple min, it would be damp, as anybody whos delt with exotic cooling or hell even had a cold drink on a warm day, you know condensation forms when an item is below room temp in a warm moist enviroment(most offices this time of the year)


    I have had to warm hardware up i just got from newegg b4 installing because it was so cold condensation was forming, and i didnt want to risk a short on my brand new toys, this could easly be the case with this card, some noob at XFX unpacked the card, left it out a few min then said "eww its damp, water damnage !!1!oneoneone" oh the sticker prooves it!!!!

    again noob move using a pic of the sticker as proof when the stickers PLASTIC!!!!!! no paper involved so water damnage dosnt apply to the sticker.

    I dought they even tested the card beyond at most pluging it in and seeing it didnt power, because they saw that HORRIBLE job removing the sticker and said "WOOT WOOT we can dennie the RMA!!!!!"

    like i said i wont be buying xfx and i will rever people i know who ask about xfx to this and the xfx thred, they will not buy once they see that sticker and the lie's about water damnage, we are almost all moders, would want to at the very least change the goop on the stock cooler maby lap it if needed, no joy here, if u do anythng to the sticker they will make up any excuse they can to dennie the warr.

    BTW that stock waxy shit that nvidia uses on their coolers SUCKS ASS!!!!
    intel igent says thanks.

    Sometimes you get lucky though, unfortunately waxking did not.
