Athena is not mentioned because it is not worthy of mention, BECAUSE, as I already told you, Athena is junk..

Only good power suppies are mentioned, and only some of the bad are mentioned in the Avoid list.

I told you to read the power supply guide so you could read reccomendations of OTHER power supplies, not because athena was mentioned..
