    I once made a plexiglas mod with wheels and i were testing the max velocity down the school halls on it...

    tbh. i thought 3mm plexiglas would hold a bit more :p

    (luckily none of my hadware got REALLY bad injured. However i broke a 120mm fan)

    PNY 7900GTX died, began with colorful stripes on the screen, 10 seconds later all black. No idea what caused it. Might get it on warranty though, justa have to stick to a 7300GS for now :(

    And same day i dropped a athlon xp 2600 and stepped on it bending most of the pins, but seems i managed to get them straightened enough for it to work :)

    Most of the stuff I broke was on purpose. Old 4 gig hard drive I took a sledgehammer to.

    Had a bet with a friend on how much power a socket 7 could actually stand... didn't matter who won by the end of it.

    Gave a buggy ram stick the screwdriver.

    Must have fried several psu's (possibly accidents)

    Also put a steel bar through a monitor but that one was an accident

    Pulled the 200 gig hdd ot of my main rig and plopped it into a hdd caddy and brought it to uni to use with my laptop. Caddy fell on it's side on the desk and the hdd then never worked again. Lost about 2 years of data! My own fault for not backing it up! :wallbash:

    really crappy thermal goop applied by OEMs responsible for my athlon64 3200+ being literally torn out of its socket whilst still stuck to heatsink.

    shat myself! but it was OK.

    motherboard went POP shortly afterward though.

    Thankfully nothing expensive yet, just a few fan connectors (I was trying to hook them up to a 9V battery :worried: ) and *lots* of flies. I can't work out how they get into my computer, there are no holes big enough :sigh: during the summer, I should get a nice big collection!
