Hi! I would like to replace the thermal paste of my GPU. Does removing the cooler to do this voids the warranty? Moreover, can the thermal pads can be re-utilized?
Thanks very much!

Just removing and reapplying is fine as long as no physical damage is caused. After reapplying paste on the GPU you can simply put the cooler back on. Pads on ram or so don't need to be replaced as long as they didn't got peeled off.

thanks for the reply! I was worried because there's a sticker of "warranty void" on some of the screws in the back of the gpu..

Sticker is for those who have no idea what they're doing. Or those who wants to have a look what's it like under the heatsink without real purpose (such as thermal paste change)

I believe you were redirected to contact your card seller or local MSI office? >>How to contact MSI.<<

Usually it does not void warranty if you remove it/break it (as its on a screw) but it still depends on the country you live in and its best to confirm with reseller(shop) or MSI office.
