GTX 980 Twin Frozr V Warranty Sticker
« on: 16-October-14, 16:39:46 »

I'm the proud new owner of a GTX 980, I have always exclusively bought EVGA cards in the past and its my first foray into the MSI world. Whenever I buy a new GPU I always clean the factory paste and apply fresh Artic MX-4 on the die, I consistently see a 2-3C drop in temps, not much, but still an improvement. I was about to clean out the paste on this MSI card when I saw the warranty sticker on the heatsink screw, if I remove this sticker will my warranty be void? And if sell the card like I did with my old 780 will the warranty be honored with the sticker missing?

Thanks

Removing the sticker doesn't void the warranty as long as you do not damage the card physically when you remove the cooler to clean off the paste.

(its there t stop people from just taking off the cooler and breaking the card when they have no idea what there doing by messing around for no reason!) its just a deterrent if your unskilled but removing it if you do not damage it your warranty will be fine....

Are you sure about that?

I mean, i had an MSI GTX 660ti PE and the sticker was pinched though and my retail shop said that the warranty was gone because if they send it to MSI they send it back to the retail store..

So can you back that up plz? I want to remove my cooler as well because of the bad TIM apply in the factory like the guy posted above.

Well I could also say it doesn't void warranty with MSI (retailer might be just crap and refuse it since it's easier to say that). Contact MSI to confirm this:

The thing is that retailer will tell you that it will void it.. contacting MSI is actually best way to get correct answer
