My last Intel CPU was a Pentium 166. You will face a very simple 
problem. The Non-Intel people use once in a while a different lingo to 
express things. There are no real technical issues with the other CPUs. 
Just minor things which also happen with Intel CPUs. Sometimes you will 
notice that the defaults are in favour of Intel.

Have fun with your new board.
