Ah, that could be a problem. As i don't really plan on dieing any time soon.

My mate's brother almost got killed when he overclocked his CPU and left it unattended whilst running Crysis. It exploded (I wasn't given the full details) and sent the shrapnel and bits of casing everywhere - including the walls.

0.o He mustve overclocked it a bit too much cause ive never know a CPU to cause shrapnel to go everywhere Confused
the force of a CPU explosion would be taken up in the fan, erm capacitors would be one of the most likely to go but they would just bang, no real force... so i am wary of that claim...

I made a hard drive explode once... fun times Smile


RE: Motherboard - WARLORDTF - 15-06-2010 07:18 PM

what on earth was you doing to it?!


RE: Motherboard - bigsharn - 15-06-2010 07:49 PM

Attacked it with some semtex Smile

Now you tell me there's no such thing as complete data destruction Smile


RE: Motherboard - WARLORDTF - 15-06-2010 07:50 PM

where did YOU get semtex from? what did you use as the detonator?


RE: Motherboard - T3hRogue - 15-06-2010 08:13 PM

tbh Semtex isn't that hard to get hold of. Quarries use it industrially because it's more stable and destructive than standard C4.

Fun times :')

Erm... I made it myself. There's a really crude way to make it out bleach, toothpaste and other various chemicals...

used 5yds of "acquired" copper wire, a push-to-make switch and a 12v battery as the detonator Tongue


RE: Motherboard - WARLORDTF - 15-06-2010 08:26 PM

impressive... Tongue kudos to you mes amis
