    I wouldn't think you would have to. Those components are user upgradable and do not void any warranty.

    While technically those are user-replaceable and shouldn't be a problem, there have been instances of Apple techs getting picky about things like that and blaming those components for problems when they may not be at fault. If it's easy enough to do, it doesn't hurt to swap back in the original parts.

    I don't, and there's never been a problem. Unless you just get a grumpy person to deal with, most of the guys are used to seeing consumer installed upgrades.

    I've never had a problem with getting my MacBook serviced after upgrading a user replaceable component.
