On January 7th, I bought a WD Caviar Black 750gb for the following PC:
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition C3 @ 3,8Ghz
Disipador: Corsair H50 Hydro-cooling Kit
Placa: Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P
RAM: 4GB-Kit G-Skill RipJaws 1600Mhz CL7
HDD: WD Caviar Black 750gb
GPU: Sapphire HD5970 OC 2gb GDDR5
PSU: Corsair TX650 W
Caja: Cooler Master HAF 932
Monitor: Acer H233H 1920x1080p 5ms
The thing is, the HDD makes very loud “noise” and the temperature is bugged, it is stuck at 44ºC all the time. I updated BIOS, but no success on fixing the issues. Also I ran the official Western Digital scandisk program and it gave me error right away telling me to check for cables ( I did, I tried 10 different cables ), so after no succeed, decided to make an ADvanced RMA.
Now my question is, it said “Out of Region”, I don’t understand that, I bought the HDD in a german online website ( hardwareversand.de ) and I live in Germany. Despite that, it allowed me to follow with the RMA process, and now I recieved a short tracking number and RMA number. How long does it usually take to deliver?
Is it ok if I ship it after I get the new one? I would need to “backup” my old stuff into the new HDD before giving it away, as I have very important data there and I only have this HDD right now.
