powerlord asks: "I am in the process of putting together an Athlon based system. While opening up the Motherboard (FIC-SD11) and processor boxes, I was shocked to find a list of 'Recomended Power Suplies ... void of warranty...'. I always assumed that if it was an ATX power supply it should be fine. Is there something special about an FIC and Athlon that make them more 'touchy' than other motherboards and processors? Is this just a legal disclaimer to limit themselves from being sued if the product is used in a way they didn't intend (running from a car adapter)? Is this the start of a new disturbing trend... buy what we've tested with or we won't honor our warranties? "
