So I have an Acer Nitro 5 AN515-43-R9B3 with Supercare 2 extended warranty, with a little bit over a year left. My laptop has been running somewhat hot lately (occasionally hovers over 90c) and I can't repaste it or anything as I don't want to void the warranty. So I'm planning to lower the power limit via Ryzen Controller. Will that void my warranty?

    Nope I can't since that would require me to open up the laptop in which it is still under warranty so I can't temper with the seal. That's why I'm asking if using Ryzen Controller to reduce the TDP in order to lower temperatures will void my warranty

    Actually I'll just close this thread, I just learnt that Ryzen Mobile chips can handle really high temps as long as it isn't for too long. Thanks for your time!
