Two XPs a 1700+ and a 2000+ both died. Then i cut a corner of a 9800pro while removeing the spacer(?) around the core, with a buck knife(still working)
Other than that i burned 3XPs(with smoke, damn what a smell) in 2 hours due to a faulty mobo. After the 3rd cpu i went to the store and told them to give it a try, they looked at me, then said "hell no" and i got a new mobo and cpu
