New or old, that's one stupid clause.

Yeah, advertise overclocking, but exclude the necessary cooling to achieve said overclocking

why the guessing of what they will and wont do? wouldnt it have been better if you posted actual information when you had any actual information, and how is this any different to the Industry Standard?? Check Intels Warranty as an example.

WTF is that about? 5 years ago they were touting their chips as overclocker friendly with unlocked multipliers and all that. What's the point in that if you're voiding warranties just for using aftermarket cooling which pretty much all of the enthusiast segment of the market does. I'm glad they're changing that cause it is ridiculous.

Amazed that clause was even there as it seem ludicrous to limit coolers especially with the stock ones being compared to aftermarket ones apart from the new amd ones which are not that bad
