LMAO

I was trying to Format a 60 gig Harddrive and left my pc for 3 hrs -- when i came back i could smell Metal and Metal Burning against eachother

wooo BOY - my CPU temp was 200F

WAY TO HOT

i jerked my heatsink and CPU outta the pc burned the hell outta me hands and wrapped those suckers in Ice packs LMAO

turned on my AC to 62 degrees full blast and its now 65 in my room

and Guess WHAT -- this chip actually Works again -- i bet money if it wasnt for my Icepacks id have a DEAD computer LOL

Anyone else ever get a close call on their systems cuz i know im to scared now to even attempt to try another modification on my PC now

LOL Scared me to death though my poor Pc was dead as a door nail

anyways Share your close calls with me - or am i the only one that is always tinkering with my PC

Speaking of CPU overheating....

Ask Stinkin Gringo about his cpu alarm that sounded like a euro police car...:lol: Shotglass and I have been subjected to that on numerous occasions on ts in the past...:lol: He fixed that problem now. I miss the sound though.:)

A few months ago I had a heat sink clip break off a motherboard. I tried to jury-rig it back on. I turned it on for less than 10 seconds and there was a melted metal stench through out the room.

Heck from your experience, maybe the cpu is still good. I never bothered trying it again. I could get another fan with a different clip configuration and try it I guess..

My Athlon 64 3000+ is always running at 70 C, so I need better fans. I remember watching a segment on a show called "The Screen Savers" (A TechTV Show) where an expert (And I Mean Expert, Holy Cow! He once made a put a computer in an old ammo can!) modder by the name of Yoshi sanded the bottom or sides off of the heatsink and it dropped the temperature by 10 C. One of the other things he said you could do, was take the plastic sides off and have a small 30mm fan blowing in towards the processor.

Ah, I miss The Screen Savers...:(
