video card fan burnt right off the card. I needed a newer better one anyway
Thanks dude. Still very gutted about it tbh."Flames charred his chassis while the electrical surge fried his Asus ROG motherboard, Core 2 Quad Q8300, GeForce GTX 280, 8GB of RAM, 256GB RealSSD C300, and even his aftermarket CPU fan. Only his hard drive and Blu-ray player survived to tell the tale."
My deepest condolences...
BTW the picture is cute..
Dude, I've been there. That really stinks. A ground-to-cloud lightning struck our home back in the 90's, split a 150 year old oak in half, landed in the house's ground-wiring, took out almost everything grounded inside the house (TV, dish, water heater, telephones, you name it). Not the computers though, but the telephone jacks virtually exploded! Nothing a fire extinguisher couldn't handle, fortunately.Koof said:
Recently we had an electrical storm go through and it somehow made its way onto our home network. --- I suppose this isn't really a tech failure on my part (surge protectors don't protect against lightning, and I suppose I could've unplugged everything, but that would just be a pain), but it still sucks.
