Recently I killed an GTR iCute PSU (450W) in PC2 in my tagline.
The Codegen is temporary, I have an Antec Earthwatts 380W ready to put in. Mind you it was a mild CPU OC anyway ...

FX5500 or kingmax ram or CPU. Never had spares to work out which one I stuffed. I'm guessing it was the FX5500 as I was getting corrupted video before it carked it.

lol at PC Freak that's a long list.

Nothing! =D

... I haven't been overclocking much. I mean, I've only taken my q6700 to 3.2GHz (4 DIMMs make it a little restrictive without overvolting and/or actively cooling the northbridge after a few voltage notches), and the RAM a little tighter than stock timings. Meh. My time will come. My time will come...

Nothing actually. The only ever thing I have actually 'killed' was a Gigabyte motherboard by flashinh it with a corrupt bios image.
