I was wondering if overclocking CPU for a day or two void warranty of motherboard? I mean there is a Overclocking Center program that comes with Eclipse SLI motherboard and when that program is installed it sets too high voltages immidietly (I mean alot higher than default voltages in bios like QPI voltage was +0.18 when I installed this one and checked it out) So I was wondering if little overclocking like i.e clocking my i7 920 C0 to 3,8ghz-4ghz for a day/two (Stability tests take some time,finding lowest stable voltages and then benchmarking tests etc.) Void warranty of my mobo? I really don't know it myself but they give a overclock program with this motherboard so I also wonder if overclocking with this board actually does not void warranty..
But if little overclock voids warranty can I use overclocking center as an excuse? Because as I said above, OC center sets too high voltages even if it's not used.. And yes changing voltages in OC center is same as using bios to set voltages.. (Checked it)
And I also might ask one more thing.. I live in europe and I bought my motherboard from a guy who won it from MSI MOA 2009 overclocking europe finals, he said this motherboard have 3 years manufacturers warranty, I wonder how I handle the warranty if my motherboard breaks someday.. Do I send it to the importer or do I send mobo to MSI?
