BFG Tech Sending Out RMA Denial Letters: Winding Down Business
 
BFG has officially begun sending out RMA denial letters to their warranty holders. Claim to be "running down business". It looks like BFG has finally received the final nail within its coffin and is officially "....winding down and liquidating its business" in their own words.

This is very very sad news. Most the cards I've purchased for clients happen to be BFG.

Bonus: Aftermarket cooling isn't an issue anymore since the warranty is gone already :thumb:

Is this affecting the PSU business too?

As you can see in the article: the warranty denial came in the return box of a PSU.

The PSU is also being affected. BFG no longer has warranty for there PSU. NCIX sells there BFG GS-550 550W, but now comes with a 1 year warranty from NCIX, instead of there 5 years.

This is rather sad news, I quite liked BFG. Best of luck to their employees in the future.

I really liked BFG. They were really great about my RMA'd 9800 GTX, and they sent me a 9800 GTX+ in return.

I hope the GS-550 I put in my brother's computer doesn't die.

Goodbye, BFG Technologies. D:

Their PSU business has been dead for a while since they fired Jon Gerow.

The one year warranty is useless as well unless NCIX is going to cover it.
