    Unhappy The Risky business behind taking care of your PC.

    I used to go and tinker around my old from 2007.Since i got my new one in 2008, been afraid to touch it since i taught it was little complicated.Then in Dec 2010 i was cleaning my GPU with my sister(she sucks in this kinda stuff) and somehow she removed half of the thermal paste from the GPU fan.I didn't mention that to her and yet put it back with whatever left in there.I was stupid and haven't considered that without thermal paste my GPU is bound to go Kaboom.Was scared and turned on my computer, next thing i know my GPU lost it's capacitor.Did everything in my resources to get it fixed, even tried on one of the stores when they fixed it worked temporarely then again lost it.All the while also thanks to my old UPS which is sort of bust, my mainboard was totally gone in a power surge.My brother bought a new one and he didn't like me touching his stuff like this.

    Google's your best friend, if you had only tried "how to clean GPU" and gave it a search, you could've found a lot of tutorial all over the internet, it's a shame how some people never learn to make proper use of the resources they have.

    bro if u dont mind take my advice...if u want to do something technical, u should atleast have general knowledge about it...now you might ask what is general knowledge?...general knowledge is before opening cpu cooler or GPU cooler you should have thermal compound ready and if u dont have never ever open it whatever happens...and the expert knowledge is, which thermal compound to apply, how to apply, how much apply and lot more things.....

    so bhai this rules applies to everything....jodi kisu korte chan taile oi baper ta shomporke janen then go for it and u have internet and ofcourse google so its not that tough...
