Nightmares lol

PC building horror stories - PC Gamer I'm sure we have all had some stories to tell. I think the worst thing i've done was plug usb pins in wrong and fried a USB flash drive.  What the worst thing you have done?

Re: Nightmares lol

Well my brother bent the CPU pins on his LGA1155 motherboard. Don't worry, got it fixed.

I, in my childhood days jammed a floppy disk into the floppy drive upside down and that caused the system to fail to boot.

I also managed to fry a microSD card by messing with the bootloader unlock process on my Xperia Z1 Compact. I was playing too smart with the non-persistent custom recovery, just to avoid a data wipe (a factory reset aka data wipe is mandatory after a bootloader unlock). Never again.
