I have an Asurion warranty along with Asus factory warranty for my ROG Zeph.
However I'm wanting to re-paste the cpu with kryonaut thermal paste. Will this void it's warranty? Thank you in advance.
 
most laptops have this information covered in their warranty.
replacing parts, modifying parts, or even opening up the device to view the inside will usually void any warranty.
you should read through both warranties documentation and see if it is explained in detail.

the manufacturer will usually point you toward a certified repair site for any accepted modifications or repairs.
 

ASUS's warranty terms don't seem to spell out that opening the laptop up will void the warranty. And in fact, a lot of their laptops have easily serviceable parts, so it makes no sense to void the warranty by simply opening it up.

They will however, not honor the warranty if you screw things up.

EDIT: I should probably at least give you the list of things which will cause the warranty to not be honored.
