Commendable
Usually there's always one sticker covering one of the screws which is used to mount the GPU cooler.

The idea is that, if you unmount the cooler to replace the cooling paste, or maybe use a different cooler, you break the sticker when unscrewing the screw covered by the sticker.

The sticker is there to reveal to the manufacturer if the cooler has been removed at any point - in some countries, removing the cooler voids the warranty.

EDIT: On some of the stickers, it even says something along the lines of "Warranty void if removed".
