I LOVE THIS THREAD!!!!! This s**t is something really hillarious; the only thing funnier than that is any GWAR shows.

I'm guessing all the open bottles (example being the powerade bottles and the bottle closest to the edge of the table) have been used as toilets....
I don't even want to think about how/where he/she took their dumps D:

How the hell did they use the keyboard?
Instantly made me think of this. "Gotta Sh!tbucket?"
Why i will never delid my proc
God I wish I had a camera during my backroom PC tech days at my first IT job. I saw shit that I thought wasn't possible:
Cat urine on a new $2k Toshiba laptop,
15+ year old pepperoni bits in a resturant POS computer
Breakfast grease that smelled like maple syrup all over a PSU and CPU fan from a breakfast joint
A USB cable shoved into a NIC port
Pastachio nuts inside an HP laser print
Spider webs with dead cockroaches in a kids gaming computer
Lots of self nude pics/vids from webcams right on the desktop
CRAP loads of nasty smelling PC's from smokers houses with the dirt/dust mixed with smoking tar stuck to EVERYTHING inside the case
What really looked like pubic hair stuck in a mouse ball from a dirty looking old man who wanted his porn to load faster
Dust bunnies so thick from being under a desk that it literally jammed the CD ROM tray into place
A huge wad of blonde air inhaled into the blower fan from an HP laptop that had "heat issues"
That really has to suck for it's owner
Fan melted right off the heatsink.
Hopefully he did it first on a bad chip. If not, yeah.
Sounds like we want to see the underside of the heatsink too!
It was an 980x (or so he says) and the bottom is perfectly fine, it was just cheap plastic that melted at around 100c
So I bought a 5770 off of craigslist and it ran extremely hot, so I replaced the thermal paste, but saw no difference in temps. So I pulled the heatsink off and found this
Didn't look to bad to me until I lifted the heatsink out of the shroud...
And here lies my issue, blew it out with my air compressor and reapplied TIM and the temps are down 20c with half the fan speed.
When I was doing work experience at a school I was made to clean and format and reinstall 30 old desktop PCs for fund raising for the school, thankfully this was the worst it got.
Someone was a smoker.
