Warranty void sticker vs Heatsink - NVME SSD

A question, do you all use the nvme heatsink included with your motherboard?
Do you remove the sticker before heatsinking?
Or you paste the heatsink ontop of the sticker?

My nvme drives have a large warranty void sticker, wth...
Bare nvme drive with sticker, what a gross sight.

The Samsung 970 EVO warranty sticker, for example, is copper backed and shouldn't affect heat transfer at all. Marketing materials even say it functions as a heatspreader though I'm always doubtful of how true that is. There is a possibility your drive's sticker is similar.

In the S.S.A. (Squabbling States of America), the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for manufactures to deny warranty claims due to a sticker being removed (https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/n...rs-illegal-ftc). However, many manufacturers continue violate that law (I'm looking at you, Apple!) and get away with it because fighting them in court costs far more than the product is worth. The FTC has taken it's darned sweet time doing something about it but, so far, it's only been a token warning to six unnamed companies recently.

Shouldn't a simple lawyer visit referring to the paragraph solve this without a case at court? That should only be an issue when there is actually not a law for it.

I imagine if one:

removed the sticker and added a heat sink;
then eventually needed rma help which, in-turn, was refused by the manufacturer;

one might be able to claim primary plaintiff status in a class action lawsuit if they could find an attorney to take the case on. That's at least here in the USA, and probably best attempted in a Federal Court in California. Oh, and the manufacturer in question would likely need very deep pockets for any attorney to take it on.

That's all hypothetical of course.
