I'd reference Upgrading Hard Drive - Warranty and Overheating Issues, which references Does User Replacement of Battery Void Applecare Warranty? regarding Apple's warranties.

There seems to be a lot of warranty questions today. :P Apple's general philosophy is that if there's some repair that would involve opening the device, they would rather you buy a brand new device from them, or at least pay them to do the repairs rather than doing them yourself.

Well it matters if they can determine if it looks different or not like if you change the back panel to an oem black then they wont notice but if you change it to a fack black back they will know because the model numbers and emc number will be different then oem models. You cant change it so theres a black oem front and a white oem back they will notice the difference.
