So many Fails but my dumbest was cutting the extended cone bits off the heat pipes on a hyper 212 hsf cooler, they were obstructing the 200mm side fan.
Epic fail as the vapour escaped the heat pipes and my cpu temp hit hyper thermal 265 in bios .I can't believe I was so thick

Cracked the die mounting a heatsink on an old Athlon.

In hindsight, I should've mounted the HSF before putting the motherboard in the case, easier to see if it's level that way.
I built my first computer when I was 14 and that was my first fail. My 850 duron never even got to post.

Another fail I remembered was when I tried to run my X1900XT passive with an arctic accelero . the core stayed under 80c but I didn't notice the VRM's burning out.

The best one was sleep walking drunk over to my computer and taking a piss on it.

I just transferred my system to a custom case and after I finished the leak test I went to turn of the PSU but since I'm rather badly coordinated I managed to get a random metal something on my desk to short out one of the molex connectors knocking out the power in the entire 2nd floor of our house and frying the PSU.

865pe chipset with a 478 socket p4, tried to overclock it not having a clue what I was doing, the bios freaks out and the system fails to boot. I didn't realize at that time the bios jumper reset the bios or you could remove the battery. That board sat in a closet for 3 years until one day I realized what I did.

Another time I plugged in the power into the ground on a floppy and that wire heated up a nice orange color.....

Was overclocking an Athlon X2 4400 to 3.4ghz when my MSI Nforce 570 board caught on fire.
I know MSI boards run hot, but WTF? Was it just smoke or did you see actual flames? If so, that's awesome! Even more amazing is the ensuing 5+ year lifespan. I rebuilt a P4/778 system (for sentimental reasons) using one of their boards, and whenever you stressed the system like gaming) it would overheat the northbridge at 64c and freeze up the system unless I turned on a very loud Delta fan I had pointed at it. And that was at stock clocks. Last MSI product I ever bought.

Unscrewing fans from the outside top of my case, forgot they were holding up the H100 radiator inside the case - you can hardly see the dent in the cores where it hit the video card...

I noticed ants crawling into my case a while ago. After (unsuccessfully) trying to remove them, I gave up and ignored them. A week or 2 later my HDD failed. I opened up my pc and noticed little mounds of silicon on top of the HDD. I took the drive out, I blew silicon dust off off and got swarmed with ants.

It turns out the ants thought the best place to start a nest was in my 500GB Hard-Drive and were not too happy with me disturbing them. I should have taken pics.

I was switching to a m-atx mobo and I had tightened one of the motherboard seating screws in the case so tight I had to use a pair of pliers to literally rip it out of the case. That case can no longer support atx motherboards, only m-atx. :roll:

:roll: sorry for laughing Brandon, but damn! That is funny as hell man!!!:roll:

I'll bet that hurt like hell bro.
Yes it did hurt badly! My hand smelt like burnt skin for the rest of the day. I was thinking about taking an old cathode and cutting the wires off so I could wire it to my door handle and call a friend over LOL.

Did an engine swap on my old corsa, swapped new ecu on the engine with my old one as it had immobilizer built and i didn't hsve the barrel lock or door locks for new ecu. Wasn't watching what i was doing plugged in two multi-block connectors on the ecu upside down and they both had different pin layouts. Needless to say the pins were completely nakard. Soldering iron, long nose pliers, an hour and a clenched bottom and she was running fine again.

I've done something similar with a van der graaf generator before. The effects can be quite comical. Physics labs can be quite fun when you get to play with giant capacitors, liquid nitrogen and dry ice.
