Dude, buy a punch tool.

Dude, buy a punch tool.

It looks like it's been punched, just really badly

I came across 5 or 6 wires that weren’t even in. Not to mention those that weren’t in all the way.

The day before I noticed this, I installed a unifi AP and it worked fine, but that night I was looking it up on the controller and it was looping back. Then I discovered this beauty.

Anyway. All is well now in the world.

Post the fixed version?? I need proof this wrong has been rectified!

YEa its pretty old

Cracked Core on my GPU while overclocking, This is my new trophy

Cracked Core on my GPU while overclocking, This is my new trophy

No. It never happens. It's literally always a badly mounted cooler, block, or when a GPU dies the user then breaks the chip while taking the cooler off to see what happened. With several thousand computers built or serviced I've never once seen a cracked chip from anything other than stupidity somewhere down the line.

Does this happen often? I have seen on this sub but even LN2 overclockers don't seem to have this issue. Do you just have to be incredibly unlucky for this to happen or can mundane overclocking on air cause this?

Remember back in the days of the Socket A Athlon when everyone was complaining about cracked cores?

My buddy and I had three cracked cores in a single night

He bought a new solid copper heatsink and put it on his 1GHz Athlon. No boot. We'd heard plenty of horror stories of cracked cores, so we took the heatsink off and... shit. he cracked his core.

Just bad luck. He'll have to wait for a new CPU. But my 1.2GHz Athlon is right here. Let's throw this baby on my CPU and see what kind of temps I can get. So we clean off all the thermal paste, put some new AS5 on it and put it on mine. No boot. Fuck... we did it again..

Our upstairs roommate has a 900MHz Athlon lying around and lets us borrow it. No boot.

It was around this time we noticed the retention clip wasn't symmetrical and was on backwards, putting a LOT of pressure on one side of the core. We ended up going to a small shop the next day and buying some 800MHz Durons or something to get up and running with. I had that Duron for the next couple years until I got an Athlon XP. All to try and shave a few degrees off my temps..

Overclocking doesn't shatter GPU dies. It was a badly mounted heatsink. You have to tighten the screws in a x pattern, or you'll apply too much pressure on one corner. (see top right of your die)

It’s slow because of the massive amounts of porn not the dust

how the fuck is it possible to get that much dust in there? I have 2 cats and my pc never gets dusty..

What? An informed comment? On /sub/techsupportgore?! HEATHEN!

Negative air pressure

Screw it!!

Screw it!!

But you can still get my stuff off it, right?

Stop

Don't try to vacuum it up. Holes in most air filters are larger than particles of ink, so you'll just launch them all up in the air.

Edit: also, that powder is very flammable. It's static too, so electricity can build up in the tube, causing sparks. And it's also cancerogenic. Fun combination!

Call your toner supplier if this ever happens, they usually have special vacuums, designed to deal with this problem.

Someone startled it

We had something like that happened in our office. So a moron took a shop vac and went to town... With air exhaust directed into a meeting room with white carpet and white chairs... Carpet and chairs had to be replaced and room repeinted; cleaning didnt help much.

Aww! You guys made me ink!

Lemme guess, you bought that from a Canadian dude named "Linus", right?

Yeap defiantly 'found a picture of it'

If you solder Pin 48 and Pin 12 of the socket you'll be able to activate Intel exclusive 6Ghz that only employees are able to achieve.

At least they're holding the correct end of the soldering iron T_T

At least T_T
