I would like all of you to be aware that I am going to file a lawsuit versus EVGA tomorrow, regarding a fire caused by a defective power supply by EVGA. Additionally I am alleging that the company engages in deceptive trade practices, by advertising a continuous power rating, its electrical protections, that are not reflective of reality. Moreover I'm alleging that the warranty disclaiming "uninterrupted use", is itself deceptive given that EVGA does not publish a duty cycle, and also advertises various methods of "uninterrupted use" to the public. 

Anyone who would like to join this lawsuit, please contact me.

here is a hyperlink to the compliant.

    Good luck.  Make sure the lawyers don't get paid unless they win.

    According to their filing, which is a matter of public record, the plaintiff is representing themselves and asking for:
     
    "Actual damages in equipment damage and opportunity costs $1113
    Punitive damages for wasting my time in research / litigation $500
    Any other relief for the public that the court deems just, for decieving and defrauding the public."

    Good luck with that one, it's also your responsibility to put adequate power bars in place and not overload a receptacle/circuit.

    Which company manufactured the PSU? Because EVGA doesn’t manufacture PSU’s.

    The company wishes for me to sign a confidentiality agreement which would preclude me from disparaging any of their products. 

    However, I would like to make it known that I am a Machine Learning researcher, and I train "large language models" on a data science workstation, specifically for legal text classification and analysis.

    My motivation is that my state of Oregon, has only 31% of the number of public defenders that it needs, to represent criminal defendants. As a result there is a large number of people who are unlawfully imprisoned in violation of their constitutional rights, for example many people were wrongfully imprisoned by non-unanimous juries.

    I would like you to be aware that I take those statements as defamatory, as the intent for my purchase was documented in the past.

    The manuals for EVGA PSUs clearly say that there are multiple protections in place. So, I assume that even if you overload their PSU it should just silently turn off, but not cause a fire.

    Hopefully OP will keep us updated with the status of this lawsuit.
    But I doubt he will once he realizes he's going to either lose or withdraw the lawsuit.
