Solved!

Can you replace the thermal paste without voiding the warranty?

HP Recommended
HP Envy x360 Convertible 15-bp194cl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'd like to replace the thermal paste in my laptop to get better performance. Out of the box the GPU reaches it's thermal maximum of 70C and then proceeds to thermal throttle.

If I replace the thermal paste, does it void the warranty and any additional warranties I may have? (through the reseller, like Costco, or credit card warranty services)

 

Thanks

@SamTheGreat25 You wouldn't void the warranty by changing the thermal post, however, HP does not recommend doing the same, you could instead perform the below steps to reduce the overheating, please follow the below steps to resolve the issue:

 

Click here for steps to resolve overheating issues, you could try reducing the visual effects to make a minor change, also, ensure you are using a cooling pad as well, to be on a safer side.

 

Here's how you change windows settings to reduce visual effects:

  • Go to Start Menu > click on Settings.
  • Type performance > choose to Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows.
  • In the new window, go to the Visual Effects and select Adjust for best performance.
  • click Apply and Ok...this should do the trick.

I must let you know that its normal for any PC to heat up to an extent, and with a CPU such as the one you have, there's nothing to worry about, for details on why you don't need to worry: Click here to go through the CPU specifications, look under Tjunction of the CPU, it supports up to 100°C.
