    heh its not quite as hard to do as you think :p

    My athlon64 3500+ went through a similar process when I was tryign to remove it and its heatsink from mainframeguy's mainboard. THankfully AMD's chips are pretty resilient and its been working a charm for a year or so now :)

    Not the best way to get that "oh ****!" adrenaline rush I can tell you :D

    I like the rush.


    Take one wire, from said 3.3v lead on PSU, add in a crimp on wire connector tee. Take short piece of wire and solder to expensive new mobo on the RAM caps input side. Hook everythign back up. Take a deep breath. Power on. Look for sparks. In the two seconds it takes pray that you didn't kill your board, RAM, CPU, card and lose all data in your RAID array as you didn't backup first. Listen for beep.


    Or flash a questionable BIOS to a board, and or video card to gain a few points in 3D05 or 06.

    Nothing like playing russian roulette with a couple grand of hardware and all your data.
