I have a dead 1900 that is sitting on my desk so I can practice blowing the bridges before I do it to my working processor.

I never killed one, but I have a 2200 that is just chillin on my desk...I kind of want a couple dead CPU's so that I can pry the core to one of them open and see what it looks like in there, and another for a keychain. :)

People at my new school were amazed by my geekiness. I hide it pretty well, but sometimes it just come flowing out, and I can't control it. Now everyone knows I am a computer nerd, but they all still like me the same. :D

exact same goes for me. I even get special jobs by teachers/ other pupils to fix their puters/ make things for them (mods etc.)

I have seen others immitate our stilish way, but they just crash and burn and we take over. I love beeing a geek

I've had one early AMD 750 get cracked, but it was't my fault.

A cheapassed piece of crap waterblock mounting device broke
and when it did, it slid at a weird angle on the processors
core and took a corner off.

I WILL NEVER buy anything from BeCooling again. They didn't
even take 2 seconds to listen to my complaint. They literally
hung up on me as soon as I started to explain how their
retention device failed.

I wrote a big article about it, I dont' recall if it made the front
page here or not. Plus, that was a LONG time ago.

I will still never purchase anything from them again though.

The least they could do is listen to what you have to say.

I've never killed a processor.

Never killed a processor overclocking it. But if not seating the heatsink properly qualifies, add my early efforts with 1900 &1600 AMD processors. I still have a working 750 Duron that hit the 1 Ghz mark back in the day. I'll never let that thing go. That was a milestone in Overclocking at that time ! Might get a glass case for that chip and put it up on the mantel with my sons homerun balls :)

killed a 1.4 t'bird ajyha sumting, was cleaning it with nail vanish remover, reapllied AC3 but i dont think i dried the cpu properly, switched it on and burn smell came...

no going bak after that, but hey i now have a 1800dlt3c jiuhb running at 200*11.5 so i gues it was a blessing in disguise
