Not to mention you are wrong. There is no way you can void your warranty by properly Plasti-dipping your parts. If you want to be a technical ******* and source lawyer-speak to back up your ridiculous claim, you can go ahead. It doesn't change the fact that in all common sense scenarios, an RMA will be accepted after pulling Plasti-dip off. My build was even posted on Gigabyte's facebook page, which you can find by googling 'Gigabyte VGA'

It's hardly a 'ridiculous claim'.

Firstly it's down to the manufacturer's discretion on whether or not to replace your hardware if you've modded it in any way. This includes painting, physically altering the hardware, dissembling or changing the product in pretty much any way. In the end the manufacturer is expecting to get the product back in the same physical condition that it was sold. Depending on who the manufacturer is they could argue all day that you voided the warranty by altering the hardware. Simply telling an end-user that they voided their warranty themselves through modification of the hardware is enough to deter 99.99% of people from trying to argue the case back even if what you did was practically harmless to the product.

Secondly, it can also depend on where you bought the product from. In the EU there are less strict rules on what you can modify or change and still keep your warranty as manufacturers are expected to honour your warranty regardless. This is one of the many reasons why certain prices are higher in the EU as its harder for manufacturers to legally get out of repairing or replacing products.

Just because your build was featured on a FB page doesn't mean that your warranty is intact unless you have it in writing that it is (also I couldn't find your build on their FB page). 'Common-sense' would stop almost anyone from plasi-dipping their components regardless of how good they might be at doing it. I've sent over 2000 items back under warranty and heard just about every excuse as to when something won't be repaired or replaced. Feel free to try and argue the point more though.

you know what plasti-dip is right? Why would common sense stop anyone from using it? its the perfect solution for non permanent colouring. Using it instead of traditional spray paint was the best thing to do in case op needed to claim on warranty.
