I've heard that when you for example buy an amd processor and after a while, it's broke or something, that, if you return it to the store (to trade it for a new one), the store has to clean the cpu and heatsink so that there is no more coolpaste on it? I wabted to know if there's any link to that? (if it's true) where amd officially says that, cuz I cleaned my broken cpu and heatsink and I don't want to lose my waranty cuz of that :x
plz help me, thx

I send back chips caked in the thermal interface material. I dont think though that cleaning them invalidates the warranty unless you cause damage to the die or cache.
