I do not get it why most brand warranties gets voided by just the case side panel. Doesn't PC means "Personal Computer" and the point of that is to personalize it to your specifications?
I know some might say "Why not build one yourself?". That's a valid point except most people does not have the right knowledge, time and even interest to build one from scratch. All I'm saying is bureaucracy is never on the buyer's side.

At least here in the US the warranty cannot be voided simply because you opened the case. By law you are allowed to do such things as add RAM and install adapter cards without voiding the warranty (except that it won't cover the additions). In order to void the warranty it must be proven that the additions were the proximate cause of any failure. The burden of proof is on the manufacturer, they can't just say it is so. This is covered by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act of 1975.
