TechReaction har tidligere rapporteret fejl med brændte pins på testede P67 bundkort fra Gigabyte. Der er tale om P67A-UD7 og P67A-UD4 bundkortene, der begge har LGA 1155 sockets produceret af Foxconn.
Nu har Gigabyte kigget nærmere på sagen og er kommet med respons.
'We suspect that we messed up and sent him a board that we had damaged during our own testing and have sent him another new one,' claims the company.
'Our testing involves overclocking and other various tests to which no motherboard should normally be exposed – we’re basically testing durability, and durability is determined when the board dies.
We’re still waiting to check the board and trace where it has been, to try and figure out how a damaged board was sent as a media sample and prevent this from happening again.
