Or you can just do a good job soldering then de-solder it later. I've never done it for warranty purposes but I have added things that I intended on removing so instead of letting it really run in by getting the components hot I'd just melt the solder with the gun with the components touching. It's not as strong this way but it can easily be removed if you heat it up upside down. Even if you didn't cold-ball it you could probably make your solder run in with the existing solder without being noticed.
I'd really like to do this to my 1080 but it's a PITA to tear it down...the cooler gets wedged in a weird way. After my custom BIOS on the 1080 I kinda forgot all about TDP throttling. It's really annoying in games because you can see the clock fluctuate with the frame times.
