Will I void my warranty?

When sending back the CPU + the boxed heatsink (I think they want to have evidence that I've actually used it) they'll surely know that I haven't really used it. Or at least, that's what I was thinking.

Isn't it like that?

If you get a retail box, there should be a small booklet in there with the warranty info, read it. There are so many aftermarket heatsinks that I really doubt any company will void a warranty for using them. If the CPU gets damaged because it overheated, it may not be a warranty issue anyway, it's probably only warrantied for a failure in the build, not the environment you use it in.

With AMD, if you read the warranty sheet... the aftermarket coolers will void the warranty. But with Intel, I never heard of them voiding your warranty for aftermarket coolers.
