No, ASrock does not allow that, As far as I am aware, the warranty is voided, when the seal stickers, are removed or damaged.
But the waterblocks You can buy are based on the reference models, and are maybe not identical to these Non Reference cards.
When you really require a 9700XTX with waterblock, they also will sell https://asrock.com/Graphics-Card/AMD/Radeon%20RX%207900%20XTX%20AQUA%2024GB%20OC/index.asp
This coems with prefitted waterblock
Kind Regards

I am by no means a lawyer, however, under the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act it's actually illegal to void a warranty if the warranty void sticker is damaged/removed (or if you just open your card in general). Section 110(c) (2) of the Act prohibits deceptive warranties and Section 110(d) of the Act makes breach of warranty a violation of federal law, and enables consumers to recover attorneys' fees.

Chances are, they'd likely still blame the damage on you or they may try and imply that you removing the cooler actually voided the warranty. But I assume lawyer fees and bad publicity isn't worth saving $1000 from denying a RMA.

Asrock's poor warranty "terms" and their definition of CID is almost sickening.

"Any burn... will consider as CID" (which isn't always the consumers fault)


Regardless, if you're ever denied warranty, look into the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Might just be a greedy company defying the law.
