Does using an aftermarket heatsink/paste void your intel retail warranty?

What I've heard is that poorly applied capacitive or conductive paste that fried your proc will void your warranty. I'm just wondering how they would know. Would they insist that RMA'd procs have the paste left on there for testing? If that is the case, where would one get more intel stock paste without buying a new stock heatsink (some places sell these for like $15)? I've also read (from an old googled article on slashdot) that they insist that you send the heatsink with the proc and they check the heatsink serial with the CPU to make sure they match.
Would anyone that ever sent in a processor for RMA be able to shed some light on the subject?
