If you are returning product from a location outside of the United States, U.S. Customs requires that a Commercial Invoice be attached to your shipment for importation.

By way of example product received from customers evidencing any of the following conditions are NOT eligible for "in warranty" replacement:
-- Inadequate packaging

Some examples are:
-- Multiple products packed into a single box without separators to prevent contact with adjacent products.
-- Products packed in boxes without protective cushioning.
-- Products shipped with Styrofoam peanuts only.
-- Products where the EVGA Serial Number has been removed or defaced.
-- Physical damage to the product i.e. a broken or dented printed circuit board assembly.
-- Components added or removed from the printed circuit board.
-- Water Damage due to modification to the GPU using a water block of any type.

Any missing or broken components belonging to the returned product are subject to a 15% penalty fee based of the MSRP Value of the video card. If the original stock cooling system has been modified or replaced with an After-market cooling solution, it will have to be returned to its original manufacturing condition before sending for warranty. Failure to do so will result in rejection of warranty service and void the product's warranty.

You will be notified via email once your Step-Up request is ready for additional processing.
