Msi has already said multiple times it's okay to remove the coolers as long as you put it back on before an rma.

I've seen posts saying that, but then why do they have warranty void stickers? Seems they could deny you if they wanted. None of my sapphire cards have that, even though sapphire says that the warranty IS void if you remove a cooler (not that they would ever know if you put it back on right)

Where is this sticker everyone keeps talking about? I see a sticker with the serial number on the backplate is that it?
