I once had this dum **** customer who broke his pc and needed me to fix it. He said it was a "gaming" pc but he had 16gb of ram, an i7, a very expensive $50 RAM cooler (wtf?), some beast i7 with a shitty stock cooler, some stupid overkill $200 motherboard, a hd5770 graphics card, and a MASSIVE aftermarket north bridge cooler which gets in the way of everything. This guy said he loves his computer and he put a lot of work into it and he built it himself and everything...

Downloading Nvidia beta drivers then opening up the Wow login screen while they had the no frame limiter on it.
Starcraft 2 did the same thing in resulted in a few ruined cards even without the massive driver bug I got.
For people who don't know Nvidia released a Beta driver that killed the fan on the GPU it got recalled in like a hour after release but my card was dead.
