Newegg offering return and exchange for exploding Gigabyte power supplies
Gigabyte Aorus power supplies with electricity on the inside and outside.
This month is certainly not the best month for Gigabyte. Following a security breach that resulted in many confidential AMD documents going public, Gigabyte is also cleaning up after a disastrous launch of Aorus GP-P750M/P850M power supplies. Those power supplies have been confirmed to malfunction and in extreme cases even go up in flames. Certainly, that is the last thing a consumer wants to see, especially when the supply is attached to expensive and in most cases impossible to buy a graphics card.
After ignoring accusations from the consumers and reviewers, Gigabyte finally admitted that there is a problem with certain batches of power supplies. Following an official statement, Newegg, one of the retailers that actually offered these power supplies in a bundle with graphics cards, is now offering a return and exchange service. Unfortunately, there is no word about a possible refund.
Only power supplies with serial numbers within a certain range are eligible for return and exchange.
