No point with stock cooler.
I have evga 1070ftw and they allow you to remove the cooler but asus don't I know that for sure on 1080ti strix coz it has a warranty sticker on
When trying to install a faulty eiswolf to my 56, i then had to put the stock cooler back, but with new tim and some extra pads under the backplate left over from the eiswolf install.
I now never get more than 80.C hotspot when under load and my temps stay about 10.C cooler on the core and hbm which means less noise from the fan.
So Asus is ok, if I brought it from OCUK?
Can anybody confirm whether PowerColor are okay for stock cooler removal, simply for a thermal paste change (and then put the stock cooler back on)? Card purchased from OCUK too, listed as with a 3 year warranty.
I have 5700xt from Gigabyte with AMD warranty sticker on it. Gigabyte support told me that tampering in any way with stock cooler will void my warranty. Im from Poland.
Thanks for the info. Wonder if it is the same here in the UK. Probably is.
Pretty sure all the reference 5700XT's have AMD warranty stickers on.
They're illegal in the U.S, but only recently. Here in the UK big companies essentially ride roughshod over the little guy, so it's a safe bet that those stickers actually can be enforced here.
It's a case of luck. They can accept it on one card and next card through the conveyor they wont accept it on...
