Will you have to break a security seal to open the case?

Not usually.
Best way to find out is to read the warranty.

unless there's a sticker preventing the case door from opening, you can probably open the case safely without voiding the warranty.

however, if you start swapping out hardware components, there is a better chance of violating the warranty.

things like physical modifications or overclocking/overvolting almost always void warranties.

no swapping, just reseating

I have overclocked my previous comp and the warranty was ok...don`t know...

there is something in BIOS:

"Case opened status" --- it was saying "No" - now says "Yes"

...but I reseted it...

The manufacturer will know (don't ask me how) & they will void the warranty.

the bios can usually detect when the case is open at that time, but not necessarily if it has ever been opened in the past.
