I want to RMA de card, but now im afraid they wont replace it because of two things:
1-I once used riva tuner to lower the clocks when the artifacting started, and then i did the reverse, overclocked it even more (a little beyond te original clocks) and check how it did go..needless to say the graphics were a total mess beyond that, but when the original clocks were restored, the card would get back to its original state of f#cked_up_mode, with collored dots and artifacting, specially on clive barkers Jericho.
SO, my questions are, is it possible for technicians from xfx to detect the usage of a overclocking software even if there is no phisical damage on the card?
Second, do you think my warranty will be voided if they find out this isnt the original bios that came with the card, even if it is XFX made? If i put the original bios back, is it detectable that bios were replaced once?
Please give a hint here, and thanks in advance.
PS: GODDAMN THIS CRAP, the title is all f#cked up and i cant correct it, because when i want to edit my own thread, i get the message "you're not allowed to edit this message"
What the hell is up with this tomshadware people? ffs.
Im only able to edit this through Quick Edit..What up with this?...
Rivatuner is OK but the BIOS mod you did they will know about it. In some cases even if you re flashed the BIOS they might be able to detect it, but I doubt they will go for that trouble. It is cheaper for them to give yo a replacement out right than to figure out if you did some BIOS mod. But, if you did any other mods, ie. RAM heatsinks, vmods,etc then you might have voided the warranty.
