How to Wreck Your Computer

PC Stats posted an article on ways to wreck your computer. It would be a good thing for everyone to read before they crack open their case for the first time. I won't mention how many of those ways that The Master has destroyed boxen of his own. Thanks HardOCP.

The Master comments: Let's see... Assembly (floppy cable short-circuited the machine), Assembly (inserting PCI card bent PCI slot pins, short circuit killed mobo), Dead PSU (in a work server no less), bent CPU pins (thankfully I was just "helping" on this one--and it was a work server again), blown monitor made magic smoke and fried video card. I think that's pretty much the list. Heh.
