Alright, thanks! What is the chance that it will fail during the 3 year warranty? I'm not going to overclock or anything, I just like to keep temps as low as possible. (I max about 32C during Prime95)

As long as you don't mention it, they will have no idea that you did, just take off the thermal paste.
