Talking What hardware did you killed?

Fun thread here

I know, you extreme guys nailed trucks of high-end hardware
And this usually goes behind the scene. Novice ppl think that getting WR on CPU is just pick CPU, bring it to LN2 and viola, WR. Only those who tried know the true, that sometimes it took 10 motherboards down to get WR.

Post here most funniest cases of that, please!
As always, I will make first input here

Total list of my dead stuff

DFI LanParty NF4 Ultra-D, nForce4 Ultra, crappy chipset /replaced NF4SLI chip from ABIT AN8-SLI Fatality mb*
DFI LanParty NF4 Ultra-D, nForce4 Ultra, Dead, crappy chipset
DFI LanParty NF4 Ultra-D, dead CPU FET, then disassembled for parts.
Gigabyte 7S748, SiS 748 chipset, Socket A, water flow on it, dead socket
MSI KM133 Pro5 , to repair
Soltek on nForce2 Ultra, Socket A, Bios got broken
EPoX 8KTA3+, Socket A, Got dead due Chrome ORB vibration

AMD Duron 800 "Spitfire" @ 980Mhz, Core damages
AMD Duron 750 "Spitfire" @ 1GHz, Core damages
Intel Celeron 667 @ 1.3Ghz , Core damages
Intel Xeon 3470 (shitty ASUS M3F with foxconn) still working but damaged
Intel 440BX mATX mobo, PWM Cntrlr burned out
Intel i865 mobo, shorted curcuit due screw under back of board in case
2x128MB DDR Noname sticks, due the internal damages of PCB's caused by high temp (>300C)
MSI GeForce2 MX 32MB SDR, unknown death.
MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 MS8870, 128MB Samsung 4.0ns, Dead on 8th water flow on it
MSI GeForce 6600GT NX6600GT-TD128E, 128MB Samsung 2.0ns, Dead due GPU damages.
CD-RW NEC NR7700A, 12x10x32x, due LG CD-R ! Hate LG
CD-RW LG 32x12x40x, worst drive in the world. _SPECIALLY_ Killed with pleasure. Hate LG.
Few Samsung CD-ROM's. I hate Samsung.
Pack of fans 80,92,120mm sizes.
74GB WD Raptor GD, dead heads
80GB Seagate ST380021A, 7200RPM, 2MB cache, PATA-100
10GB Seagate, PSU with reversed +12V and +5V lines (sick!)
500GB Seagate, bad sectors
6GB Fujitsu, the same PSU
4GB Seagate, still the same PSU, Damn. At least find out reveses Pack of Codegen's PSU. Trash.
Round 120mm CCFL for fan

X800GTO, after hardcore chilled extreme session with 720MHz GPU it was



GeForce4 Ti4200. Forgot it on heater. Remember about card only when entire room begin smell badly. WTF, I thought.. OMG, videocard! It costed $250 that days.



One of four DFI's LP NF4. This was with hardware programming interface to S939 cpu, few ES thingys on it. Cracked chipset.



Gigabyte on SA socket. HATED it really. KILLed by purpose.



Frozen and hammered!



CPU craked due overpressure by cooling



220V on CPU is bit too much

Hey TiN, I remember the JTAG programming

DFI NForce 4 Ultra-D - this board still works after being baked several times, one working DIMM slot, one working PCIe 16, other works at x4, no PCI/LAN/sound/SATA/IDE. It has spent in the region of 7000 hours subzero and at least ten hours sub zero without any insulation so it lasted me well

DFI CFX3200-DR - man I'm sad to lose this board. Corrupt BIOS meaning I can't change anything even after a flash, desperately need a new BIOS chip preflashed

Countless AthlonXPs = meh, those cores are delicate!!!!

TCCD 256MB x2 - didn't appreciate 3.7v even though it scaled well up to 3.5v and ran at that for several hours. Did DDR700 before dying

Gigabyte motherboards x at least four - all dead IDE controllers, all socket 370

Pentium 166MMX - failed to correctly apply 5v rail to CPU

Inno3D GeForce 6600GT - ran it without a heatsink while doing a BIOS flash before mounting a pot to it (didn't feel like mounting if it might not work), flame from some tiny IC scortched PSU cables ~12"/30cm above it

Vapochill LS - knocked the head and sprung a leak at the unit end of the suction hose

D9GMH 1GBx2 - http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=417271 I say no more

Athlon64 X2 6000+ - voltage damaged and can no longer do 4GHz

Althon 3000+ - killed removing the heatspreader

CH-5 256MBx2 - Memtested at 4v

I think that's it other than the usual hard drives dying

not even 1% of what most guys killed here but:

2x Asus rampage extreme ( nothing weird here )
ATI 4670 ( just died on me )
8800GTX ( 1.6V load was to much for the pwm )

Easiest way to sum this up for me:

I stopped keeping track as it became too depressing. Lately I've been lucky though, I think I've killed 1 motherboard and 1 GPU in ~12 months of light benching.

I don't count hardware that you fail to mention has already been maimed

Yeah, well done on delaying Fermi

I forgot to add three HD2900XTs that died for unknown reasons. I'm GUESSING it's because I had a separate PSU for them which was sending current through the six and eight pin connectors even while they were 'off'.

Take that to the news sites, give the community a laugh

"Now that Fermi is in production, nVidia are willing to be a bit more open about the reasons behind the delays, now that they are resolved to the point of having a sellable chip. Its become clear that a Glasgow-based overclocker........"
