I don't suppose they are available just yet. Those cards have been out, what? 2 months?

also if you update your bios, instead of sending it back to company, say bye bye to your warranty

Given their specific examples, a good lawyer could successfully argue that the "modifications" are limited to physical changes to the hardware.

There is no reason to do a bios update ,they don't help performance unless you overclock with the bios update ,You can use Ntune and it will save you overclock even when you shut down your computer ,it keeps what ever you save it as.

LOL, just call them they will tell you, we don't recommend changing the bios but if you do and mess it up we will fix it.

They don't recommend changing them, but if you bork the card they will reload a bios onto it, it's just a pain to ship and wait etc... Plus they aren't gonna be in any hurry since you did just break your own card.

You can't change GPU memory timings within Ntune... You can with nibitor, but I haven't tried with the G80 only G70 based chips.
