    I feel embarassed to ask this, but i suppose everyone has to start somewhere.

    Anywaay, i've read that watercooling voids your warranty, but can manufacturers tell if you have been water cooling/overclocking in case you need to RMA a product?


    (Should this go in extreme cooling? im not sure...)

    They can't tell that it's been overclocked or watercooled - however, if you burn it up by overheating or kill it with too much voltage then it could be detected.

    Most people consider it immoral to RMA things that you've broken through your own fault, but I won't go there...

    i'm talking about if it was not your fault, i.e. a power surge or something like that. Anyway, thanks for the info.
