    thats ok

    the whole idea of this thread was to cheer me up - I don't care if it makes you more depressed (j/k)

    I've also fried a couple of power supplies, soundcards etc

    you do the following:

    Have one of your mates go to Dick smith and buy 20 high intensity LED's and wack em on breadboard

    then wire it up to an old PSU to test it

    then put LED's in you computer and wait about 2 hours while it cooks your power supply, 36 x slot scsi cdrom, and sound card.

    then spend the next 4 weeks working out why your computer is flakey

    Now I wonder what will happen if I get one of the old 486's here and switched the PSU to 110v and then turn it on. :?:

    Funny story about switching a PSU from 230v to 110v.

    Tweaky, why don't you tell the entire TT commpunity about your attempt at "overclocking" your computer by flicking that lovely little switch, oops too late. :D
