Charging AGM batteries

I recently installed about 800 ah of AGM batteries--and I've read that because of their high acceptance rate they can sometimes burn out alternators. Do I need to do anything to reduce the output of my 4023 Ample Power alternator. I'm using the Smart Alternator Regulator V. 3.

Ample alternators are hot rated for continuous duty, so you can't burn one up from charging batteries of any type.
