After killing some hardware I guess if I was trying to be optimistic I could look at it as an opportunity to try something new. Unfortunately I tend to lean toward the ":swearing: ! I just killed a $225 motherboard!"

One of the golden rules of overclocking is to never overclock a component you're not comfortable with or don't have the means to replace. Nowadays for me I am lacking the means to drop a couple hundred bucks on the hobby so I run the uber-wuss OC now
That's a mild OC? You have a Q9550 and a Rampage Formula, 3.4 is a mild OC! Time to get back in the game.

If I ever kill a cpu (or other component) to the point where it's irreparable, i would probably yank it apart and make something out of the pieces. Maybe jewelry, not sure. A cpu die would make a pretty fantastically nerdy necklace, for example. Might be able to sell stuff like that too.

My Q6600 has been great to me, but I haven't found the same attachment that came from my AMD chips.

I've also had three E2180's, a E2160, E2140 and two PD's, none of which I cared much about. S939 is where it was for me

Nooo, thats totally normal. I attribute the drop in my GPA 2 years ago in high just because of OCN and OCing. I didn't even game with the system I intended to game on! I just spent my time trying to get every last Mhz out of my Opty 165...

I was having deep thoughts, about the death of a much loved CPU , one that gave you lots of desire to try and get just 1 more Mhz out of your system .Do you rejoice at the chance to start all over again and nourish a meaningful relationship with lots of give and take between you and it. Or do you mourn the death ,and never have the desire to, delve into the dark sorcery of overclocking ever again . Just some thoughts that crossed my mind.
If you imply having a relationship with a chip you're OCing, you have a problem... seriously, that's like beating your girlfriend.

I think I may be one of those people who splurged on a RoG board but doesn't use its potential. When I did play around with it I found it took less effort to get to 3.6 than it did to put my socks on this morning. Given the settings for 3.6, I think I could hit 4.0 with <1.36 vCore assuming the board will run a quad at that high of a FSB. Maybe someday when I'm feeling frisky

it's actually pretty difficult to kill a CPU these days, the 45nm ones are a little easier, but definitely not as easy as most people seem to think (lol @ 1.36V limit).

Well then what is the deal with this majestic number we all keep hearing about? I don't know if the whole concept has been redrawn lately but there was a point in time where it seemed that was the the last door before reaching CPU death.
