Have you ever killed a CPU? - Page 3

post #21 of 97
Once, I was still in the last century, I was testing some motherboards with the first Athlon CPU that came out:
It was just start the mobo to see if it booted... stupid me, sick of put thermal grease, mount heatsink, boot, dismount heatsink, clean grease, change mobo, mount CPU, put thermal grease and so on: I thought it's just a few seconds, that can't hurt.

yeah, stupid me, it didn't even started the video...

Out of parts I've personally owned, I have, via overclocking/overvolting, killed a Pentium 75MHz (P54C), a Pentium MMX 200MHz (P55C), a K6-2 450MHz, an Athlon XP 2100+ Palomino, an Athlon 64 3800+ Newcastle, a Pentium 4M 2.53GHz Northwood, two Core 2 Duo E8400, a Xeon X3350 Yorkfield, an i7 3930k, and an i7 5820k.

I've broken another half dozen physically and killed a fair share of loaner/test parts.

Watercooling leak with an external radiator, one drop of water fell on the 8-pin power.
A 3930k at 1.5v 5.0GHz pulls a lot of power. and 10+ amps created a small fire in my PC. Killed my Rampage IV Gene, 3930k, and a 1KW PSU. Was a very sad day.

I see your CPU is not a train spider robot looking for a weapon.

I killed an E7200 Core 2 Duo by delidding it. It was back when the CPU was worth about $100. It made me sick to my stomach. I just barely knicked the PCB with a razor, but that was enough to slice through several traces apparently. I tried it in multiple mobos and she wouldn't POST.

Holy crap, you guys are crazy..... I didn't think so many people would reply, lol....

Sounds like I should start an insurance company for overclockers! Well never mind, you guys would put me out of business.
