Exploding Power Supplies: Gigabyte & Newegg Dumping Unsellable Product
We spent MONTHS evaluating Gigabyte's GP-P750GM & GP-P850GM power supplies to determine why so many users reported DOAs, failures, and "exploding" MOSFETs.Sponsor: US!

Gigabyte’s GP-P750GM and 850GM power supplies were and are in combo “deals” on Newegg Shuffle. If you wanted the graphics card but not the PSU, you'd have trouble to return one without the other. You’re essentially stuck with a product that you don’t want. Many of the Gigabyte PSUs were reported DOA, and in testing, we found many were explosive. We quantify the Newegg reviews, our own survey, and load test the PSUs. We also show which MOSFETs demonstrated failure and explain more about how power supply protections may have prevented it. Gigabyte and Newegg are ultimately dumping an unsellable product on desperate buyers.Find Aris' video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hS0Mjw3BW94RELATED PRODUCTSEVGA Super Nova 750 G5 on Amazon is actually good: https://geni.us/73O0hSeasonic Focus GX-750 on Amazon is also actually good: https://geni.us/JNVMaITIMESTAMPS 00:00 - Gigabyte GP-P750GM & 850 Failures05:42 - Newegg’s Screwed-Up Policies08:05 - Chaotic Component Choices12:11 - Gigabyte Probably Knew It Was Bad13:27 - “Fireworks” from Aris14:19 - Failure Data Collection18:02 - Protocol & Test Equipment19:55 - Testing the Units23:47 - Endurance Test24:50 - Conclusion: DO NOT BUY
