Re: Replacing Thermal Paste voids Warranty?

Maintenance and user upgrades won't void the warranty (and it's actually protected by law in the US, see the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act).

But if you end up damaging a component while you replace the thermal paste, that will certainly void your warranty.


As a side note, I personally don't recommend changing the thermal paste so early on unless you see a significant decrease in cooling performance.


Hope that helps.
