I know XFX and EVGA don't care if you remove your heatsink as long as you don't go all gorilla and mangle something.
I never got a straight answer whether Asus will void your warranty but I'm guessing the answer is yes.
Does anyone know if MSI will void your warranty for switching out the heatsink to a water block?

MSI warranty sticker does not apply to the US. They allow heatsink removal too.

Good to hear, the Microcenter near work has an open box MSI gaming for the same price as ordering from Amazon :) Now to actually find someone that has the waterblock in stock.

Definitely good to know. I started seeing the stickers after the 500 series (my 560 ti twin frozr II's didnt have em), maybe the 600 series and was scared to buy MSI because I remove the heatsink to reapply better TIM

I ended up picking up the Gigabyte card instead. No warranty sticker and it was only 10 bucks more than the MSI. I figure if I do end up having to do an RMA at least Gigabyte is in the US for support.

It also comes with a backplate.
