Does XFX's warranty cover BIOS modding at all?

No, flashing a non-proprietary bios on to a vga card voids warranty

Warranty info
(a) any misapplication, modification or misuse of the Product;

Note: if it has to be flashed [BACK UP the VGA BIOS FIRST] if this vga card [*dose not] have dual bios function; also ensure you have a good understanding on how to recover from a bad flash [bricking]

atb (all the best)
