thats crazy!
second hand smoke! So they open up the laptop and BAM all the smoke comes out and kills the techs!? haha
I understand engineers can refuse to work in your home if it smells of smoke, but refusing to work on a computer due to second hand smoke!?

also, here is the section for OC for my EVGA card's warranty

Overclocking our products does not void the warranty as long as there is no physical damage to the product or missing components. However EVGA Support will not be able to assist you in overclocking the product.


I couldnt decide what card to go with and went with EVGA specifically because I heard and read good stuff about their warranty

I'm fairly sure Lifetime Warranty just means the warranty lasts as long as the product is still being produced (so it can be replaced if you need a new one).

So if you buy something with a Lifetime Warranty and then it becomes obsolete/discontinued, that's it... Your warranty is kaput.

I think lifetime warranty means only what the manufacture wants it to mean. If they don't want to honor the warranty they will find some excuse to get out of it. Been there and done that.
