Default question about C2d....

Is using thermal paste or changing to a non stock fan on a Intel C2D void the warranty ?

No offence but that's kind of stupid...doesn't matter because some people get lucky and don't have to use it? lol. Mage, I doubt it would but I'm not 100% sure so you might want to find out first. Maybe ask Intel. http://support.intel.com/support/9089.htm
