lol...why did you post in a month and a half old thread? You could have made a new thread
I wouldn't think it would void the warranty. You have to apply the cpu hsf yourself, so applying the nb and sb hsf's with as5 shouldn't void the warranty. Also, some ppl put watercooling on their nb and sb hsf's so i would doubt asus would void the warranty for that.
Is it necessary? No. I did it on my asus p5b-deluxe, since i was overclocking. I doubt i needed to do it then though but it gave me something to do and cooler temps
. If your not overclocking you shouldn't need to. You prob don't need to even if you do overclock unless your nb and sb temps get too high.
Also....make a new thread next time instead of using a really old thread
