Physical Damage Policy
Physical damage to any product purchased at OxfordTEC will effectively void warranty coverage. Improper Installation of fans and/or improper clocking may cause PCBs to chip. PCBs that are chipped, burnt or have bent pins are considered physically damaged and cannot be returned for refund or replacement. Physical damage includes but is not limited to improper handling and/or any other type of damage sustained by irregular usage. OxfordTEC encounters bent pins regularly when inspecting physically damaged PCBs. Forcing a part into position will not solve an installation problem and may consequently void any applicable warranty coverage.
