Nvidia bans overclocking for its G80

NVIDIA told all of its partners that it simply won't allow the overclocking of G80 cards. It doesn't want another Geforce 7900 GT overclocking fiasco that caused a too high return rate for the cards

If they would be talking about the board partners, why would they care about the card return rate? It's not like they have to refund the people. Maybe to protect their image a bit?
