One of my friends has been having hardcore comp probs. his HD's have been regularly crashing after being bumped slightly and then not even getting detected in BIOS. Well he decided a 120gig (WD I think) was totally shot. So he started slapping it. Then he threw it on the floor. Then I passed him a piece of some excercise system which was a round steel bar with a cushion on it. And he hit it with that. Then the pad fell off....and well he said:

F*ck this. And this is what ensued:
EDIT: no mo vids

this is what it looked like afterwards:

A picture of the drive in better condition and the weapon my friends and I beat it with:

I would suggest for beating the hell out of a case to get in a car go real fast down your street and throw it like at your mailbox/mother in law/wall.

I took a claw hammer to a case once...it was pretty good for cracking but it didn't totally destroy it.

Why not fry the power supply with the mobo attached?

but wait. can i fry the psu and mobo at the same time then beat the **** out of it?
Why not smear solder all over the pins of the chipset on 2 sides? then hook 2 leads from the PSU on it on either side and power up
?

Or do the same thing to the cpu? My guess is the wires will fry first though.

Sorry, I reckoned this topic was fairly dead, and I was sweeping out my server so the 50 megs of videos had to go

Heh, I personally would never do that even if I thought they were shot cuz there's always some money to be made. My cousin said he would have bought that drive...
