AMD HD6990 Over Clock Mode Voids Warranty

AMD confirmed with us this morning that the warranty will be invalid if the user switches to the ‘OC mode' - which translates to a core increase to 1.175 volts and a clock speed of 880mhz.

We would strongly advise that if you are buying a HD6990 to leave it in the default position. Our testing shows that the cooler is doing a reasonably good job, but we can't comment on the long term reliability right now. It is an unusual decision to offer a bios setting ‘out of the box' and not deliver warranty support, but we would assume AMD might also have concerns with partnered power supply failures... KitGuru
