So a couple weeks ago, i got a gtx 560 ti by Zotac. However the gpu is overheating waaayyy too much, (70 degrees celcius while running starcraft 2) so i want to refund for a better one. The problem is that i threw away the anti-static bag accidentally. Does that void my warranty?

Throwing away the bag does not void your warranty but you will need to put the card in an antistatic bag if you want nVidia to accept your returned item.

If you RMA your card, the manufacturer might offer an advance-replacement option where they ship you the replacement first and you ship your defective card back using the replacement's packaging. This is a simple way of making 100% sure your return packaging meets all manufacturer shipping requirements.

70°C is not overheating for GTX 560... 90°C is.

CPU considered over heat when they reach 80- 90 C.... 60 - 70 C is quite normal if u had low fan setting or live in hot place....

For warranty I think InvalidError got it all....

No need to return the card 70 degrees is normal temps for the card. Add more fans to your case for better ventilation if you like , but your card is operating normally.

99c is the overheat point not 90c.

That is the whole purpose of Furmark, that's why both AMD and Nvidia refer to it as a "Heat Virus" and IIRC don't recommend it's use.
