I have recently bought the MSI-9131 motherboadr from MSI. A review here: Game PC Review' ">http://www.gamepc.com/labs/vie...0D4CBC1F837741C3A15884 .... It says that the motherboard uses P4 coolers. And infact, when I got the board it is not compatible with Socket 940 coolers. There are special coolers for this motherboard that come with it. If I use them will the warranty of my opteron be invalid?(retail(processor in a box))

Technically, probably. But the board is on AMD's recommended list so you can't use any other solution. I am guessing they would make some sort of exception. Your only other choice would be to use a different board.

I would bet you are OK. Just keep all your receipts in case they are needed.

Relax.
If your CPUs are ok (temps on both are low) - it will be allright.
