  1. Game performance is controlled by factors including (but not limited to) graphics card performance, network performance, I/O performance, monitor resolution, detail settings and game engine optimization.
  2. Overclocking AMD processors, including without limitation, altering clock frequencies/multipliers or memory timing/voltage, to operate beyond their stock specifications will void any applicable AMD product warranty, even when such overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware and/or software. This may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer. Users assume all risks and liabilities that may arise out of overclocking AMD processors, including, without limitation, failure of or damage to hardware, reduced system performance and/or data loss, corruption or vulnerability.
