I am planning acquiring the model XFX Radeon RX480 Custom Blackplane 8GB, and I think that add EKWB Water Block when it is available.
I do not want to be imprudent, but what I have in mind making will be risky:
- Going to one manufactures of apertures of aluminum (home doors, windows) and to ask it for that, with a Jigsaw or means laser, cut a section of the model without case of an computer electronic component.
It is a crazy, i know, I expected that the manufacturer (AMD) make it, but I will have to be careful and to know who to attend for this work, and... 2 questions appear to me:
1- Do I lose the warranty with this intervention?
2- If I do it well and the RX 480 works correctly later, would it be recommended making something like that?
My cordial greetings.
1. Yes, you immediately lose warranty coverage.
2. Actual implementation designs are decided by the manufacturer (eg. Sapphire, Asus, etc).
