Weird, I have not lost any of my AMD PCs, I still have working K6-II, Duron 600MHz, Athlon XP 1700+ (with a small part of the silicon chip missing, but still working), Phenom 9850 BE, Phenom II 975 BE. Over the time power supplies and motherboards died but none of the processors. Starting with the Athlon they were all pretty heavily overclocked - max with basic air cooling.
Except for 1 NVidia card (8800GT, that is one good card), all my graphics cards were ATI. I have lost only one of them, due to fan melting (literally) twice and then, on the second go, trying to remove the radiator myself, by hand. The first fix was done locally and they kind of glued the radiator with epoxy and used too much. Let's just say that when the radiator came off it took some SMDs from the PCB surrounding the chip with it.

I now use ATI graphics but Ivy Bridge i7 Sigh | :sigh: - WoW runs about 50% more FPS on Intel compared to AMD processors and that's the only gaming habit I still afford.
