We make best effort to test the most common configurations that our customers report they use, or that we think our customers may use. However, unforeseen incompatibilities do still occur. A product that is incompatible with a customer's intended use is not a defective product, and all applicable restocking fees will apply.

To return a product, a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number must be requested from QC USA INC./CoolDrives within 30-days of the date the product was shipped to you. After 30-days, all product returns must be handled directly by the manufacturer or warranty provider. QC USA's RMA application page can be obtained here:
