    I still have a GTX285 with the lifetime warranty and the 2 day Advanced RMA Replacement option. That option covers all shipping charges, they ship me a replacement card in 2 days then I put the label they send me on the box and send my bad card to them.
    Wonder what I would get if it failed now?

    I think this all started when some punk on Reddit bought a GTS 250 for change off eBay. Then he proceeded to make a very public post on reddit to 'test' XFX's lifetime warranty. Of course this was a public relations nightmare, and in the end, he received a GTS 250 back (which I wouldn't be surprised if XFX bought another one off eBay, lol).

    For me, I bought have my Vega 64 Limited registered to XFX, and I wouldn't expect much after 3 years.

    Same, owned 6 Xfx videocards and RMA'd R290 (coil whine) and FuryX (noisy pump) without issue and think around 2 week turnaround time for both.

    Are most warranties voided if ever OC or OV?

    If one of my cards failed I just toss it in the trash. Since I always at least OC once or more. If the card fails within 30 days I will return it and get a new one or cash back unless I did something to break it then I will just eat it

    I think in almost all cases xfx would just treat every card in the same fashion especially with them phasing out lifetime warentys......id be more pissed off if some jack ass sent in a card caked full of smoke filled dust and bugs...honestly in this day in age if your buying an amd card to overclock with specifically, what most people are undervolting lol
