    Now we all know that it has always been an unwritten rule that eVGA, XFX, and most other manufacturers don't care if you overclock and swap coolers on their products as long as you put them back to their original state before sending them in for RMA.

    The warranties have always been a little vague when it comes to stating these rules, but everyone knows what they really are. They have never officially been put into writing anywhere.

    Well recentl, eVGA did a major redesign on their site, and I noticed two very interesting posts in the FAQ section of the new site.

    http://www.evga.com/support/faq/?f=55
    http://www.evga.com/support/faq/?f=57720

    Basically, eVGA has finally officially put into writing their policies on overclocking and 3rd party coolers.:rockout:

    No, it was always one of those deals where people knew it, but it was never official.

    The FAQs are dated as pretty old, but they were not on the site before the redesign.
