    I sense broken EVGA cards will command a bit more money on eBay for a few weeks...

    I believe that eVGA don't penalise users who replace their stock coolers with Water cooled ones, so this could be a great opportunity for someone....

    You can't knock EVGA service..
    I've had 2 470's go odd on me & RMA'd them back to EVGA.
    2 new ones in the post straight back.
    Class.

    I'm now a EVGA convert

    And no they don't penalise as both mine where on EK WC blocks

    Better service than I am getting from an old NVIDIA partner & BIG etailer trying to fob me of with £80
    instead of at least trying to offer me a card to replace my GTX280 as the warranty says "repair or replace".
    Cant even get them to honour the warranty that was registered in good time.
    Any way EVGA look like a firm that go out there way to look good which is better than the ones that say not our problem see your supplier and the supplier saying not our problem see the manufacturer.

    Warranty isn't that sticker that fells off wet when you open your box with the dremmel in hand?

    Say what!! That would be sweet. I have 2x watercoolered EVGA's 8800 GTXs. They have to be most stable OC'd cards I have ever worked with (can fold 24/7 with them - even in the summer months!!) I'll definitely take up this offer...

    Given the hoops i had to jump through just to get an RMA on my XFX 5850, and its been with them over a week with no sign of it coming back yet, I think evga might be someone to go to in the future.

    they should allow a holiday step-up that allows anyone who purchased a GPU or product or already stepped up their GPU or whatever within the last year to do it again. I would so upgrade my GTX 480 to a 580 instantly.

    I have to say, the ONLY thing holding me to nVidia based cards these days is EVGA. I have always had good service from them, as have my friends. RMA's are few and far between, and when they do occur the service is always fast and friendly. I try to support them whenever I can.

    it is very good of them to do this but the registration shouldnt be needed as in the invoice count as the warranty proof
