    [WTB] GPU Water block for 4850

    Looking for just that, a water block that will fit a ref design 4850. Nothing fancy, just can't seem to find any anywhere, except microcenter, who has one, and is more than an hour from me.

    My Western Digital RMA Status situation!

    Unless you did an advanced rma, they need the defective drive before they ship a new/refurb back to you. iirc, you need a credit card for advanced rma, so if you used one when filling out your forms, you most likely submitted an advanced rma, in which case, call WD to see what is happening...

    Desktop Won't Turn on

    stand-offs are the little extensions of the screw holes that lift the motherboard off the metal tray of the case. And to short the pins, just take a paper clip, use the U-bend in it to make a connection between both pins on the motherboard that your power button plugs onto.
