Does Thermal Paste still void warranties on A64s?

Since the Athlon 64 processors have a heat lid, thermal grease is recommended (thermal pads are not).

Check out AMD's recommendations I found in the AMD Athlon 64 and AMD Opteron Processors Thermal Design Guide:

Nanotherm PCM+ or Artic Silver Ceramique are excellent choices, both perform very well in recent reveiw comparisons. Also Artic Silver has just released AS5 and from what I gather from peep's doing reviews on the stuff outperforms all current TIM's.
