Your most awesome computer crash while gaming?
slaapliedje commented on 21 June 2018 at 6:34 am UTC

My typical crashes usually involve some high volume screaming at me when the game crashed, usually it's all about timing.

This time around my game crash caused the computer to completely freeze (reset button wouldn't even work) and the Steam Controller was stuck on rumbling (I had to pull the battery out!)

What's your most awesome crash?

happens rarely. When i had some wrong settings for my CPU/RAM OC, i had some, but they werent anything to remember.

Most awesome crash i think was back in february last year. I was playing ARK on Linux, suddenly framerate started to jump and then boom, like electricity went out, tried to turn PC on again, nothing. opened it up and saw my VRM was smoking for a split second. That was it with this FX 8320@4.5ghz and cheap gigabutt motherboard whos poor VRMs had to keep up with my OC for several years.

I think the most interesting recent one was because of a dying hard drive. General confusing instability. Then one day we were greeted with a message about the hard drive not functioning properly

That was a confusing one to figure out...

It was a dark and stormy night. Was playing Morrowind. Suddenly, BOOM FLASH! The screen distorted and then went black. And this is what a near lightning strike will do to a computer. Mobo, CPU, psu; all fried.
