I wouldn't do it man, EVGA I think has a lifetime warranty, but they will deny you repairs if you mod the heatsink.

Well, it might... but it's not worth potentially losing all that money for.

EVGA doesn't void warranties for changing the heatsink.

From what I can gather, if you overclock it with an aftermarket hsf, they can deny you service. So we are both a little bit right.

In short, if you want to overclock, I think they only cover damage if the factory hsf is on it. Overclocking is covered in this case. Otherwise, it is like cabbspapp said. That's what I found from a google search.
