No, using a third-party cooler with your AMD Ryzen chip WON'T invalidate the warranty

Today I have discovered a new favourite word: nontroversy. I think it perfectly encapsulates the recent noises that have been swirling around the release of the AMD Ryzen 2 processors and the discovery of something in the FAQ for their CPU warranty - using a cooler other than the one provided invalidates it.

Heatsink? Fan? Water! That’s how you should chill your chips, so check out our pick of the best liquid coolers.

For the last few years the FAQ support pages about the warranty of AMD processors has stated that your warranty is not valid if you use a processor other than the one in the box. Even if it were something AMD were actively pursuing it would be next to impossible to police; it was essentially a caveat to avoid chip replacements due to the end user jamming an unsuitable cooler on top of their processor.
