Hey all,

Not sure if this is really the right forum to put this ion but oh well...
Just lateley ive been thinking about OC'ing my Gigabyte 5750, but I'm just wondering if I OC it through ATI Overdrive in CCC, will I have still have my warranty?

Ive been looking around the web a bit but I cant find any hard evidence that says whether or not you'll still have your warranty, so if anyone could find some actual evidence that would be great :D

im going to say no! due to the fact they added it into there software, also if you did overclock and it died, you would return it to your computer you bought it from so long as you have the warranty receipt and still under warranty...

 AMD and ATI processors are intended to be operated only within their associated specifications and factory settings. Operating your AMD or ATI processor outside of specification or in excess of factory settings, including but not limited to overclocking, may damage your processor and/or lead to other problems, including but not limited to, damage to your system components (including your motherboard and components thereon (e.g. memory)), system instabilities (e.g. data loss and corrupted images), shortened processor, system component and/or system life and in extreme cases, total system failure. AMD does not provide support or service for issues or damages related to use of an AMD or ATI processor outside of processor specifications or in excess of factory settings. You may also not receive support or service from your system manufacturer.

This says you won't get any support or service from AMD when you overclock but it doesn't explicitly mention warranty being voided - unless they consider claiming warranty as part of service.
