repasting a new laptop worth risking my warranty?

I just bought a ROG Zephyrus S GX531GW a week ago. I already tried undervolting it to -0.130mv and I'm having constant 73-79c (CPU) and ~75c (GPU) while gaming with apex and witcher 3.

I want to lower my temps even more by repasting using kryonaut, but afraid that temp difference might not be worth voiding my warranty.

So my question is, should i consider repasting my brand new laptop using kryonaut while possibly voiding my warranty? can it provide a significant change in my temps?

if they don't have a way of checking to see if you opened the laptop then go right ahead, i highly doubt they're ganna check the thermal paste.

but you need to see if they have some type of tape that breaks when you open the case, or something like that

i'm told it makes a difference of 5-6C which can be alot. for a laptop

that isn't too bad for a laptop. I'm happy if mine gets below 95 playing CS:GO. Do not risk the warranty.

They get hot, especially during gaming, but he should test it first
