Default messed up rad9700pro?

hi there!

i know this is my first post over here but i will start right off with a problem i have.
i own a hercules 3d prophet 9700 pro cooled by a vga silencer and was able to clock it up to 391/345 without any artifacts. now while running rthdribl i accidently got the clocks up way too high which gave me artifacts on the desktop right away. now i am experiencing snow in 3dmark2k3 at stock speed!!! looks like i have fuked up my card, right?
so if yes, i wonder: when rmaing where do i have to send it? i bought it at an online shop, so should i send it there, to ati or to hercules? even more important: how closely do they look at the cards they get? i have removed the shim and the plastic clips holding the stock fan look quite bashed as well.
this really sucks, so help would be highly appreciated. thank you!

It's broken, been there, done that.
just send it back to the shop you bought it from, only you'll have to wait a while to get it back (been there, done that).
another solution is sending it back to Hercules, what will be faster, but I think they will see the damage you made on the card.

that's why I always take good care with the original parts
