    Hi,

    Not that I feel like voiding my warranty today, but has anyone opened up their R1F to see if the CPU could be pulled and replaced?

    Just curious.

    Yikes, tread carefully. I personally don't know whether ASUS solders or sockets the CPU.

    Asus has only made two systems EVER with soldered cpus.... the 12" S5ne (back in 2004) and the new R2h (only because it's so small).

    The R1 has a socketed cpu.... I can guarentee you that.

    So, the next question is....can we replace the CPU without Asus knowing later if I ever needed warranty service ( again )

    Usually there's a sticker on one of the screws that hold heatsink to CPU. And no, you cannot remove it and apply again later -- it will broke and this way ASUS will know that you've voided your warranty.

    No, because like anyone else, they put a warranty sticker on the cpu which will break.
