Very dangerous if you don't know what you're doing, be careful guys.

I don't personally want to muck about with it, I don't have the money to buy a new card LOL

You cant really mess up your card with it. if you try to flash to a bios thats not specific to your card (card # ect) it will say wrong card ID. The only thing you can do is customize your original bios with clock speeds and memory timings and a few other things. If it dosent accept if you have a spare card you can use it to flash your other card back to its original bios. Kinda fool proof really.

But you can change the voltages and if you don't know what their max is (which I don't) you can pretty much kiss your card good-bye if you put it too high!

Ooh LOL well I am not going to take the chance, though could I claim it off warranty if I say that it has simply stopped working?

Depends on the company your working with really. Im not familiar with how the UK version of these companies run though so i cant really tell you. Here in the US i only know of 3 companies that you can get away with modding the card. XFX, eVGA, and BFG. Sometimes BFG gives you some crap about following through with their warranty.

XFX(US) i know for certain they will replace anything wrong with any card 6 series and up.

Yeah same with our manufactures over here bud, they are all the same.. manufactured in the same place so I don't see why there should be a different warranty policy!

I can assure you the American warranty is alot different than the rest of the world. On my other forum we get ALOT of UKers who complain that we will get a card RMAd no matter what but the UK RMA dept for XFX dosent really do shiz.
