    Hello and Welcome to Techspot!! :)

    I'm young too (16 years old), and fortunately, I don't do too much stupid things :) (Well, just burned a mobo and CPU :haha:)

    I'm sure you'll hear soon from Howard.

    I forgot to mention, we blew up a PSU before. We were controlling it's fans, in order to take some load off it (it was too weak), but we turned on the machine, and forgot to turn on the PSU fans.

    So it did a big BOOOM, and died :eek:

    Hehe, it costed only $15, and was a 450W A-Power PSU, but it managed to burn the CPU and the mobo.

    I guess that won't happen again in a long time....(Hopefully :) )
