Really Stupid...

I'm in 11th grade and I'm known as the "tech-guy", people come to me when they have problems be it a phone or a computer. This lad came to me wanting to build a custom pc. Ok, I picked out his parts, ordered them and built it. Everything was working 100%, I ran all the benchmarks. 

Prime 95 Furmark, fire strike, memtest etc. I give him the system and he was thinking ohhh I have a custom built PC so now I know everything. He went to best-buy, bought thermal compound and put it on the cpu. The next day he came to school telling me he had problems. I told him I would look things over and if need be RMA something. It was working before he put the thermal compound on so I started with the CPU. What I found was a mess. The socket was covered in it. He even put it on the pads of the i3 thinking the thermal compound on both sides would give him double the performance. RMA option is now gone.. Maybe I could clean it up some but ohh wait, he bend almost every pin on the mobo.. I tell him he needs a new mobo, maybe cpu and he tells me he wants a FULL refund as it's my fault and I broke it. 

 

 Last time I talked to him.

That's a real shame. That poor PC.

I would have simply said "No." and walked away. You gave it to him in perfect condition, he ruined it. Case closed.

What a fucking "smart guy"

Nvidia is to Dr Dre Beets as AMD is to KFC.

One makes you broke, the other you can get more of and have a midnight snack from the fridge when hungry again. Once you go Nvidia, you go broked, turn into an Elitist, or get the incorrect amount of VRAM.

 I was only 9 years old. I loved Fifflaren so much, I had all the NiP merchandise and matches pirated. I prayed to Fifflaren every night before bed. Thanking him for the life I have been given. Fifflaren is love I say. Fifflaren is life. My dad hears and calls me a fuckhead. I knew he was just jelly of my passion for Fifflaren. I called him a Sw@yer. He hits me and sends me to go to sleep. I'm crying now, and my face hurts. I lay in bed and it's really cold. A warmth is moving towards me. I feel someone touching me. I feel someone touching me. It's Fifflaren. I am so happy. He whispers in my ear; "this is my pyjama". He grabs me with his powerful Swedish hands and puts me on my hands and knees. I'm ready. I spread my ass cheeks for Fifflaren. He penetrates my butt-hole. It hurts so much but I do it for Fifflaren. I can feel my butt tearing as my eyes start to water. I push against his force. I want to please Fifflaren. He roars a viking roar as he fills my butt with his love. My dad walks in. Fifflaren looks straight into his eyes and says; "He is a ninja now". Fifflaren is love, Fifflaren is life

Technically you can wash the mobo and get the paste off of there. But not worth the effort for an asshat.

What an idiot.

Wishing leads to ambition and ambition leads to motivation and motivation leads to me building an illegal rocket ship in my backyard.

his fault lmao what idiot thinks that putting a liquid substance on a motherboard over circuits is a good idea, more or less common sense rather than having knowledge on pc's

Damn, why do some people go off and do something like that when they have absolutely no idea what they are doing.

And then blame the other person for their mistake.

Just tell him he's not smart enough to handle a custom PC.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

Damn that sucks though. I was known as the same at my high school over the past few years and I never really had any issues. The only issue I had was when I was selling old computers and one of the OS keys wasn't active. Got the guy a new key and he was happy but otherwise no issues.

Together we stand with a moment of silence for that system: Another one succumbed to the hands of the tech-illiterates... :(

Good thing you didn't refund him though, that and his damaged CPU/mobo maybe some kind of punishment to his ignorance and his immature "blaming someone for his mistakes" thingy... ;)

One more thing, if the PC was working fine why did he feel the need to take it apart and put thermal paste on it?
