Nvidia responds to overclock warranty controversy

by on31 July 2012

On the record: It is not true

On Monday we reported about some warranty issues involving overclocking and overvoltaging Nvidia cards and it did not take long for Nvidia to issue a quick denial.

Apparently nothing changed in Nvidia’s warranty policy and below is the official comment. The original story is here.

Nvidia responded with a statement that part of our story is not true:

"This statement is not true:
"with these limitations Nvidia is now telling everyone that overclocking your already overclocked GTX 680 over 1100MHz will void the warranty.”

NVIDIA’s warranty is between NVIDIA and our add-in card partners.  It does not govern individual product warranties, which are between the card manufacturer and end users.  This is standard industry procedure.  NVIDIA has not made any recent changes to our warranty with add-in card partners regarding overclocking. 

Igor Stanek, Senior Product PR Manager EMEAI."

Nvidia is basically saying that they will deal with partners and that end users will not be affected with any decision that Nvidia makes for or against its add-in-board partners.

Overclockers over 1100MHz you are safe, but Nvidia will deal with the partners that go over this number, in its own way.
