    No, if you damage the product. If you don't damage the product, there is no need for the warranty, right? However, if you're operating the product beyond spec and you damage it, then you should not *honestly* expect warranty coverage. This is simple and basic.

    Changing drivers is operating beyond spec in a lot of cases, as I pointed out, so everyone that updates, your warranty is now void, so says Hemi. Good job.

    Wow, what a logical argument you have there. Sounds like you are a shill for Nvidia trying to damage control. If you're not being paid, then I feel very sorry for you, you're wasting time trying to argue with those that actually have valid arguments. Stop posting ignorant comments about subjects that you can't comprehend.

    When it comes to HARDWARE is THEIR choice not ours. When it comes to WARRANTY again its THEY have to pay not us.

    We're not asking for unlocked voltage, or removing heat threshold limits, which would actualy increase warranty repairs. We are asking for the current completely safe OC limits to be honored. It's not that hard to comprehend a simple subject, but for some it apparently is.

    Crisis averted?

    That is great news for people with laptops.

    Actually, I said nothing of the sort. That you would be this dishonest is alarming and is evidence you realize how weak your argument is. Using the drivers FROM THE MANUFACTURER is not operating out of spec. What a silly claim to make.

    Its their hardware, they can do what they like with it. There is no law stating hardware must be overclockable, if you have a 980m and its not fast enough and you refuse to compromise on IQ settings then stop dripping and wait until something faster comes out.

    I've blown up hardware overclocking. Neophyte seems to be missing the point. I'm all for overclocking. Have fun. Just don't expect the manufacturer to cover you if you blow something up.

    Its impossible to damage a mobile GPU with the OC limits that were already in place and have been since the 600 series. The only way to cause damage would be to modify voltage too high or disable thermal throttling. Neither of which are being discussed. The ignorance and incompetence continues.

    The fuss? We overclock more than 135.

    There is no good reasoning. The GPU as he said before, shuts down before damages happen. It's nearly impossible to damage mobile Maxwell via overclocking. I've tried doing massive OC w/ overvolt and absolutely no damage, because... Right, GPU resets itself, crashes to desktop and GPU resets to default settings. No white screen, no rainbows, no BSOD. And that's from a massive OV, with just OC normally the GPU will throttle until it's stable.

    Try using a 980M and OC it before posting junk.

    That's BS. People have been getting their NVidia desktop GPUs replaced after damaging with OC for years and been doing so even with bricked GPUs via flashing vBIOS. Desktop users have been having it both ways for years, OC'ing has been covered by warranty for a while. If EVGA will cover warranty for a damaged card by OC, why wouldn't they for a mobile part that costs 3x as much? Makes sense to me.

    But then, why even say anything? Playing dumb works really well.

    Could be as simple as an oversight. Could be as simple as they have a single line switch to enable/disable it and someone was testing with it disabled and forgot to reenable it when they built the driver.


    Too many people overreact and jump to conclusions at the smallest thing.

    They enable the block to see how the reaction is, it was a bad reaction and they are going to disable it once again. Nvidia flat out lied last time and said OC'ing ability itself was a bug introduced into drivers, then backtracked when users called them out on it.

    Overclocking is only supported IF the vendor says so. ASUS for example CLEARLY STATES in the warranty that is it void if the card is operated outside of the set parameters.

    That is what I think as well, they also had a quick fix ready to go as well.

    Yes they do. They say follow the parameters set in the users manual. So anyone who owns a card can check it to see what they are. Too bad they don't offer a pdf version like they do for their motherboards or I'd see what it is. It still doesn't matter as ASUS clearly states that they won't honor operation outside of set operation parameters, which by definition is what overclocking is.

    Some parameters -
    Don't dip your laptop in water.
    Don't throw it away like this http://www.storypick.com/pornhub-laptop-guy-smashes-screen/
    Don't burn it.
    Don't install other batteries etc.

    Warranty [what it looks like to me]

    Crossing the limits ==> Congo, you just got your warranty voided!

    Operating outside of the parameters would be modifying voltage or disabling the throttling measures. Bumping the core clock without touching those two things are operating well within parameters. Stop with the useless posts.
