First of all don't do ANYTHING that can void the warranty. Some cards don't let you mess with the thermal paste without voiding the warranty. Honestly, I would just email their customer service department because if your card is getting so hot that it's making a smell, the only thing that can be done is to RMA the card and get a new one. That's also the safest thing to do because that way you know 100% that you're getting the issue taken care of. If you try anything yourself and you end up doing something that you think might fix it, then a month down the road you might have the same problem and now you voided your warranty and it's all for nothing.
