I usually turn-off my my computer everynight before i go to sleep because i can't stand any sound while i am sleeping. It has to be dead silent. Anyways yesterday night i had to leave it on (don't ask why: ) I went to bed and i couldn't sleep because those 3 x 45dBA fans on the radiator were spinning like crazy. I got up and turned them off. BUT i have 3 diff. channels and some fans are connected serial, i forgot that and turned off all the fans in the case.<br><br>
I woke up in the morning and first thing i did, was checking the computer. I moved my mouse so the monitor could get off from stand by position. Nothing happened. I was like "hmm that's weird" than i noticed none of the fans in the case were working. I immediately went for the tubes to see if the pump is still working and ohhh man tubes were on FIRE, the water inside was at least 60-70C I pulled the plugs and started swearing at myself. Than i smelled inside of the case and nothing was fried. Waited 10 mins to let the case and everything cool down. Than i cleared cmos, turned the fans on seperate from the system. After praying a lil, i turned it on and everything worked. I am so lucky to be here right now otherwise you would say "bye bye" to 3xtr3m3 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br>

glad you were able to save everything. one time I didnt push in some ram all the way and after I fired up the computer I smelled something funny, so I shut it all down, I checked the ram and sure enough it was just starting to melt. It toasted the sticker (literally) on it, but the chips were fine....i dont know how, but it was.
