Poor Overclocking

Post by Mr.Waulrus on 5th May 2008, 9:56 am

Seeing how you guys even have a forum section for overclocking, I think you'd find this story somewhat funny.

A couple of years ago, I had an eMachines. It wasn't bad and it wasn't good. It ran and I was happy with it. One of my long distant relatives came once and decided to overclock it. And he did. He didn't tell me about it. And somehow he managed to turn off all the fans in the computer, while overclocking it, the way he put it "to the max". So needless to say that in about 3 days after that, I smelled something burning while working on the computer. It suddenly just stopped working. Turned off completely. I took my trusty friend, Mr.Screwdriver and opened up the eMachines case. I felt something drip on my hands...

You can imagine my shock when I realize that that something was plastic. There was a minituare flame, burning the insides of my computer, thus melting the motherboard.
