I don't think MSI's warranty covers much other then regular wear and tear. I know some cards support overclocking in their warranty and if they do that then they'd probably cover water-cooling as well. Shoot them off an email and see if it's covered at all, especially since you bought some super expensive cards they might be lenient.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

Yea, some brands do allow after market cooling if they allow overclocking in the warranty. I know MSI covers overclocking on some of their products now in days.

If you tell them in an email and they know chances are if they don't support anything aftermarket under warranty then you could be chopping your hands off. I know this is a month old, but just posting for future reference. If there isn't anything obvious like a warranty sticker preventing you from changing anything then go ahead and do it but keep the stock cooler. They wont be any the wiser.
