Will putting heatsinks on mosfets void my warranty?

Can I put heatsinks on chips that get rather hot, without voiding my warranty? I think I read somewhere that I need to be able to remove the heatsinks to keep your warranty. However, the heatsinks I have all have thermal adhesive on them and the box they're in says that they will be stuck permanently.

 

I have searched for this, but couldn't find info about it.

 

This image shows some spots that supposedly get very hot:

The board must be returned in its original shipping configuration for RMA service.
