I have just bought a MSI RX 470 Armor 4GB that was used for mining. I am thinking of changing the thermal paste of the card for safety and stuff. Will MSI void my warranty for changing the thermal paste?
Part 3 of their warranty states:
Unauthorized changes of non MSI parts, modifications or alterations , parts removal in or to the products
They could potentially argue that thermal paste is parts removal.
That being said, if they knew the card was used for mining I doubt they would warranty it, additionally Im not sure the warranty is transferable anyway.
Changing thermal paste probably wont help anyway, if the card was ran hard enough to warrant new thermal paste, its probably going to have some other issues.
