    A few weeks ago my computer wouldn't boot after leaving it for a hour it turned on and a puff of smoke come out of the top, then it started working again fine so didn't think much of it, So today i was upgrading my CPU and i took my waterblock off to find a burnt mosfet on the power board, what i want to know should i send my board for a RMA or keep it as its still works fine [​IMG].

    RMA. Always RMA. It will haunt you forever if you don't.
