Do you think the factory would know if you did this? Think its returnable? I wouldn't be willing to break a lifetime warranty by putting new stuff on my card.

evgas have the lifetime upgrade program, but no i dont think they have a lifetime warranty, only 1, 2, or 3 year extended warranty. plus, i dont think putting as5 would void it, even if it did, if you just wipe off the as5 before you sent it back, i HIGHLY doubt theyd notice....
