    Just voided my Warranty on my Asus G55vw

    BUT... I now have a 240gb mSATA Mushkin Atlas DX SSD! Not to mention, my 15 min 1920x1080 Furmark temps of 82c are now 72c. Worth it?

    The warranty doesn't seem to matter anyway. I don't know if I've heard of a successful warranty process anyway

    Yeah that's why I didn't care. I would pay/fix myself before doing an RMA with Asus.

    Because he had to pretty much completely tear down his PC to install the mSATA drive so he repasted the CPU and GPU while he had it open, its very common with any PC that if you repaste the thermal material you'll get significant temp drops because of better thermal conductivity vs the original thermal paste.

    I'd say so. Cudos on the 'new' machine. I'll bet it rips it up now.
    You know there are many, many, many that actually Never need repair, they just run, run, run ...
    and Now yours is faster And cooler. Congrats.c.
