Point is that there had been several video reviews posted on OCN several times now of reviewers saying that some systems have been shutting down, some people posted pictures on reddit of their burned ATX connectors or their dead PCIE slots.
Some people dismiss it as fraud that it is no proof, yet they also have no proof that it is untrue as well.
So... give and take. You can't claim one thing is "overblown" when you go on something else and "overblown" that.
