High-speed RAM still voids your CPU warranty (but only if you tell them)

Thats bullcrap. Enablimg EXPO has absolutely nothing to do with warranty. This is spreading dangerous false information, as people could ne uselessly avoiding EXPO while usimg dangerous, defective parts. Even regular CPU overclocking doesn't void your warranty. AMD gives you the tools fo do it. DAMAGING your CPU with overclocking (that is pushing the CPU too hard and not the motherboard causing issues, like what has been happening with the explosions lately) voids the warranty. Again this is just lies upon lies, and people should not be afraid of using thier products as intended just because a couple of manufactures made some serious errors.

Enabling an XMP/EXPO profile higher than your CPU is verified to handle does indeed void the warranty.

It's not unusual for casual users to select the highest numbers when faced with a set of premade profiles. A small amount of reading into Tom's Hardware's coverage shows that errors related to the EXPO profiles affected the SoC voltage, triggering this whole debate again, and those were well within the safe ranges.

You're right, though, people shouldn't be afraid of enabling EXPO profiles, that's why I wrote this.
